Vanity of Vanities: Twitter displaying badly in Google Chrome

I love Google Chrome and use it exclusively. Almost exclusively. Sometimes, it doesn't display a page right; but that's rare.

Right now, it's displaying Twitter stupidly. Like this:


When it opens, the B portion starts to be in A, where it should be... but then it bounces down to where you see it in the screen shot. For some reason, this seems to create blank space C, which obviously should not be there.

I have no widgets. A number of apps have access to Twitter. It doesn't make sense that they would have this effect, and because of past nightmares in the Twitter/Facebook link, I'm reluctant to mess with it.

What have I done for troubleshooting?

  1. Uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome.
  2. Rebooted several times.
  3. Cleared cache and cookies several times.
  4. Confirmed that it does display properly in IE.
  5. Searched Google fruitlessly for any articles or posts on this issue

There y'go.

UPDATE: Mike Vickers suggested I try an incognito tab (Ctrl+Shift+N), disabling extensions. I did that. It displayed fine. So... great.

UPDATE 2: Okay, Mike Vickers is a genius. I tried disabling extensions one by one. When I disabled the last (SelectionLinks 1.0), Twitter displayed properly.

Well, that was fast. I'll leave this up in case some other poor schmuck is having the same issue, so (s)he will find a post about it.

Thanks, Mike!

Glad it worked out.

As far as being a genius, though, you should consult my wife :)

This is not the H&T I was looking for.
