On certain Chrome browsers (all have the same, v70.0.3538.77 (Official Build) (64-bit), version ) we have this bug (already abandoned report of 2013: https://github.com/simile-widgets/ancient-simile-widgets/issues/494):

Any ideas what is causing it to fail?

This result format is apparently starting to fall apart completely. This is a bit of a shame but the underlying lib was abandoned. Not sure if there is an alternative.
