Shift+Enter and Tab not working in 6.6 with Chrome on OS X 10

I have a working version 5.11 of sage that I use primarily in the notebook interface together with Chrome. I decided to upgrade to version 6.6. After doing so, I found that the terminal would be running version 6.6 but that the notebook would run version 5.11. I then trashed the 5.11 .app file and the sage folder from my applications folder on OS X 10. After restarting sage, the notebook would open in version 6.6. However, when I opened or created new notebooks, I could not evaluate any cells because Shift+Enter would not evaluate cells. There were no other buttons to evaluate cells either. Additionally Tab would not work as an autocomplete, but rather would move the cursor to other cells and menu tabs.

Any suggestions?

Most likely this requires a "hard cache reset" in your browser (details vary by browser). There was a pretty major javascript update in the notebook and we get this report from time to time (and had it often while testing these upgrades), so hopefully this will take care of your problem.

By the way, if you launched the notebook directly from the 6.6 command line you should have been able to run the notebook as 6.6 as well, but if you were clicking on the app icon then you would have had to change the preference for which binary to use (which is possible to change!). So you don't need to redownload the app, in principle, when you upgrade your Sage.

Thank you! The "hard cache reset" fixed the problem. Also, I did not need to change the preferences; the newer version of sage was launched when I clicked on the .app icon. I'll come back and give an up vote when I have enough reputation to do so.
