    It appears that the MimeTex rendering engine is not working in the Chrome browser.

    I am using Version 62.0.3202.94 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    The following tex code renders as shown below:


    [tex]
    Z_{23} \; = \; \frac{\(10 \; + \; j10\) \; \Omega}{-j12 \; \Omega}
    [/tex]

    @jrap: Can you confirm this behavior?

    This is the tex code:

    [tex]
    Z_{23} \; = \; \frac{\(10 \; + \; j10\) \; \Omega}{-j12 \; \Omega}
    [/tex]

    Tex rendering:

    <br />
Z_{23} \; = \; \frac{\(10 \; + \; j10\) \; \Omega}{-j12 \; \Omega}<br />


    This is what I see in Chrome:

    @MrChips: Thanks for the info.

    What is the "Tex rendering" line that you are referring to? Is that something copied from my post, or something generated by your tex code?

    What version of Chrome are you using?

    Mine claims it's up to date. I know it used to render in Chrome without any problem. I started having problems a while back, but it seemed intermittent. In hind sight, I think it was working in IE but not in Chrome and I just didn't make the correlation until recently.

    The tex rendering will depend on whatever system and browser you are using.

    The jpg image is a copy off my screen which is Chrome 49.0.2623.112m running on Win XP.

    Interestingly, I am now running Chrome 61.0.3.163.100 (32-bit) on Win 8.1 and the tex code is not being rendered.

    This is what I see:

    <br /> Z_{23} \; = \; \frac{\(10 \; + \; j10\) \; \Omega}{-j12 \; \Omega}<br />

    Okay, so I'm NOT going crazy.

    I'm using Win7 -- and have been for over five years, including when it was definitely rendering correctly.

    So it is for sure that upgrading Chrome beyond some version is sufficient to break the rendering engine on some O/S's.

    Hello,

    Let me try in FireFox Quantum 57.0 on linux OpenSuse Tumbleweed:

    <br />
Z_{23} \; = \; \frac{\(10 \; + \; j10\) \; \Omega}{-j12 \; \Omega}<br />

    Thanks, bertus.

    I haven't had any problem in FireFox or IE (yet).
