I'm just going to assume JavaScript's disabled.

(Tip: Please understand that JavaScript is not Java. The two have absolutely nothing to do with each other at all. Just like the word Chase could mean either "to pursue" or "to ornament metal", the name here is no indication whatsoever. You cannot learn to ornament metal in order to become a better runner, and likewise nothing you do with Java will fix your JavaScript problems.)

  1. Open Options (Spanner button -> Options).
  2. Go to the Under the Hood tab.
  3. Click Content Settings right at the top.
  4. Select JavaScript from the features list.
  5. Make sure it's allowed to run for all sites.
  6. Close the Content Settings and Options windows. You're done.

Needless to say, if it was enabled to begin with, that wasn't your problem. Ensure you don't have a Chrome extension that disables JavaScript.

State at Step 5

Try this problem with another browser and let us know if you still receive the problem.

Update Google Chrome to latest version.
