Hello Ian,

Chrome version was 35.0.1916.153. I have just updated manually to 
37.0.2062.102. I thought that Chrome automatically updates to the latest 
version but apparantly there is some lag. Anyway, that solved the 
problem! Perhaps the community sites use a very advanced web feature 
somewhere...

The (lesser) problem still shows on Firefox, which is at version 31. 
Which is the current version as far as I can tell.

By the way, my OS is Windows 7.

The CSS error still shows, but looking at the name I would say that is 
probably an optional file for custom styling per site.

Regards,
Frans
