I have a problem with the visualization of formulas in the browser. I have no output when I use commands like view, pretty_print or I select the Typeset button on the top of the notebook.

If for example I write


the output is just an empty line. Same with pretty_print or if I select the Typeset button. It was working until a few days ago. I have no idea what the problem can be.

Where can I start to look for the problem?

('Sage Version 5.8, Release Date: 2013-03-15' on osx 10.6.8)


any suggestions?

if I use view(1) in the command line I obtain a pdf with '1' in it. If I use pretty_print in the command line I obtain the html code... it seems a problem with the visualization... can someone that know how sage works help me to understand what I could check... which kind of test could be useful to understand the problem? I am really stuck here...


new version ('Sage Version 5.9, Release Date: 2013-04-30') and same error... as far as I understand sage makes use of MathJax to render mathematics. how can I check that MathJax is properly installed and that it is working?

Are the symptoms repeated in other browsers?

Does it work on a different cell or a different worksheet? Does it work when you toggle the output level (click on the white space left of the output).

It does not work in Firefox, but it works in Safari.

in Firefox, when I click once on the white space left of the output, nothing happens. If I click twice a gray line appears. If I click a third time the gray line disappear.
