Steps to reproduce:

Close -> Why should this… click "exact duplicate" -> Paste the URL of the "duplicated". If you click VOTE TO CLOSE right there, nothing happens.

You have to press "enter" on the URL text box so the form will "load" the question.

I don't know if this is by design. But I spent a couple of minutes clicking Vote to Close and nothing happened (even after reloading the page).

When I decided to press "enter" it worked.

Chrome 8. OS X 10.6.6.

Martín, I'm using Chrome 9.0.597.84 and I'm not able to reproduce this. The duplicate question content loads right away. Or when I pasted an incorrect URL it displays the "Unable to find a question id in your input - please enter a question url or numeric id" message.

How are you pasting the url? Using mouse click or cmd+v ? If this is an issue with Chrome 10.6.6 only, then we don't support Beta browsers.

  • Sorry I misread. I was on Chrome 8 too when I first read your question. Then I realized I wasn't on the latest official build of Chrome so I upgraded to 9. And I wasn't able to repro. I wonder if it's related to this bug code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=60057 (I believe it's been fixed in the latest build)

  • Well I didn't even know there was a new Chrome :) I will upgrade to 9 anyway, but I have no idea if there's a workaround in 8. Feb 3, 2011 at 18:32

  • @Jin: this happens to me on chrome 8 as well. I can get it to load the dup by hitting tab. Feb 4, 2011 at 2:29
