Over the last couple of days I've been getting the following error when attempting to view any of the review stacks. (Using Chrome 25 on Windows.)

An error occurred when loading the review item. Please try again.

An error occurred when loading the review item

EDIT: I should add that it was only the Webmasters review stack that resulted in this error. I was able to review on SO and other stacks without issue. When this problem occurs I get the following "error" under the Network tab in Chrome's Developer Tools.

Error in Network Tab of Chrome Developer Tools

And the corresponding HTTP Headers for this request:

Now Resolved

I should add that this now appears to be resolved - I no longer get these errors - although I have done nothing more my end to aid this. As mentioned in the comments below, I had previously deleted the cache and some cookies, but this did not help. (I've not even restarted the browser in this time!)

  • Will ping mod chat - thank you for report. – danlefree Mar 20 '13 at 23:12
  • Just to add... Sometimes when there is a new item to review in one of the stacks. eg. in "Low Quality Posts" there was 1 earlier, and I reviewed it OK. But the "Close Votes" are currently showing 12 and I get this error when trying to view them. Plus all the other stacks show this error (but there are currently 0 entries in these stacks at the moment.) – MrWhite Mar 20 '13 at 23:38
  • Hhhmmm... there might be a problem with my browser?! Using Chrome 25. It works OK on my Android phone. – MrWhite Mar 20 '13 at 23:47
  • does firebug report anything funky? – Simon Hayter Mar 21 '13 at 0:18
  • Hey, can I get you to open up the "Network" tab in Chrome's dev tools and try to reproduce? Send a screenshot of anything that pops up there, particularly if it has a funky status. Thanks! P.S. also check the console. – Shog9 Mar 21 '13 at 2:31
  • @Shog9: I have updated my question with screenshots from the Network/Headers in Chrome Dev Tools when this error occurs (oops, didn't check the console). However, the problem now appears to be resolved - I no longer get this error - but I have done nothing more my end to resolve this?! – MrWhite Mar 21 '13 at 16:06
  • Kinda hard to diagnose then, I'm afraid... If you encounter it again, try to capture an error in the network log somewhere - that might help lead us to the cause. – Shog9 Mar 21 '13 at 16:08

Silly answer but I assume you cleared your cookies :)

As you know Chrome automatically updates so most of us are using builds on version 25... and im not getting any problems on win7 64&32... Try reinstalling it I would

  • I had cleared the cache; which didn't change anything. And I have since deleted all cookies related to Webmasters; which didn't help either (I was reluctant to delete all my cookies). I should add that it was only the Webmasters Review stack that seemed to have a problem; I was able to review on SO and other sites OK. Anyway, the problem appears to have been resolved and I have done nothing more at my end(?) - I've not even closed the browser in this time!? – MrWhite Mar 21 '13 at 15:33

As mentioned at the end of my question, this problem now appears to be resolved and has not recurred.

(I'm answering my question, as the Community user appears to have bumped the question to the top of the active question stack - I guess because it had no upvoted/accepted answers?)
