[Bug] Imgur issues

I've noticed something with the "skinny line" problem. At least in chrome, it always happens when I either open the post in a new tab and it's not the visible tab, or it's not the displayed post when I just click on the link to open in the current tab. More often than not, the post will open fine if it's the current post in the current tab. Previous posts in that tab get the line until I refresh. Haven't tested in firefox yet. But the behavior appears consistent.

Rather than a skinny line, when it happens to me I usually end up with just the top 40px or so of the image, but the full width.

I'm less convinced it's an imgur thing now that I've started to see a brief flash of the full image changing to the line when I switch tabs.

Yeah, no. It's not an imgur thing after all. Firefox loads all those images just fine. Only got zoink'd once out of 20 or so.

So it's either Chrome or the board not playing nice with Chrome.

I wonder if it has something to do with the latest version of firefox implementing tracking blocking natively.

I'll say that I don't have the problem with Opera, which like Chrome also uses the Blink engine (though admittedly I also run uBO and Disconnect).
So it's more likely to be specifically a Chrome thing or a tracking thing.
And now I'm really finally going to bed I promise.

I mean, I haven't seen it in the last few days either, but I've always used firefox at work, and I know I've gotten the thin lines and errant "zoinks" there too. That's what makes me wonder if it's the tracking filters they added earlier this week.

Firefox updated on me tonight on my laptop, but I don't recall seeing any skinny line posts.

What I do know is a lot of my issues with this laptop lately has turned out to be the latest Chrome being a little bitch. Trying to surf reddit or watch YouTube or CR has been either a slog or numerous display glitches. FF has been on it's best behavior the last few nights.

OTOH, none of those hiccups happen on the desktop. AMD drivers on both sides for years.
