Bug: Flag drop-down box doesn't work in Chrome.

Not sure if this is an issue with Chrome or not, but when I try to flag a post in Chrome (Ubuntu 9.10), clicking on the dropdown box makes it disappear instead of dropping down options.

This was mentioned over here the other day. What version are you running? Flagging is working ok for me on Ubuntu/Chrome I think this is a problem with a beta version and I'm not sure if it's Chrome or us. The JavaScript for flagging is pretty simple, but if any JS gurus want to take a look and see if they can spot a problem maybe we can get a fix going for the latest versions of Chrome.

I'm using Chrome (36714) w Windows XP and my drop down flags are working fine, if that's at all useful as a data point.

5.0.307.1 dev
Windows 7

Does not work. Looks like it is just the developer versions.

I'm experiencing the bug running 5.0.307.5.

I'm one of the folks who originally complained about flagging not working in Chrome, but I must have gotten some nightly update (I'm on the beta channel) and now it works fine. I'm running

So I'd assume that it'll fix itself as the developers make a new dev build in a day or two. Sorry chaps.

*/me attempts to hijack thread for his own Chrome-woes.*

So, as a fellow Linux/Chrome user, have you( pb, or anyone else who might know) found any way to get pdf's to open properly in-browser? It seems like a bug that was fixed a while ago except for in the Linux builds...

I'm using an extension that opens .pdfs as Google Docs. Works like a charm.
