MathJax rendering freezes post editor

+3
−0

I've found that while typing a post, whenever the MathJax renderer runs the editor freezes and I become unable to type anything in it. This is quite annoying, as it happens quite often - I can only type a few words before the MathJax renderer runs and stops me. Even just moving the caret with arrow keys will cause the renderer to re-run, making it extra annoying when I move back to fix a typo or something.

What browser? I find the same happens in Chrome on my Android device but not in Chrome on Windows. msh210‭ about 1 month ago

Happens also for me with Waterfox Classic on Linux. In particular the re-rendering on moving the cursor is annoying; a re-rendering should only be triggered when the edited content actually changes. celtschk‭ 21 days ago
