None of the UI elements work on the IDE


Hi, I am new to C9 IDE.

I just set up a new workspace, but none of the UI elements seem to work for me.

For instance, when I click on the menu tabs on the top of the screen, no drop-down menu appear.

Also, no other buttons on the IDE work.

Can anyone help me out here?


Are you using IE by any chance? Cloud9 does not support IE. Here is the doc.


No. I use Chrome.

It is very weird. The terminal below seems to be working, so I have no idea what the issue is.


This almost sounds like it could be caused by a conflicting Chrome extension. Have a try in incognito mode with no extensions installed to see if that makes a difference. Would be helpful to see a screenshot of the errors that are showing up in the browser console.


Hi Brady,

I went to extension managers and experimented by turning on/off each of the extensions installed.

Turned out that disabling one of my extensions DID resolve the issue.

Thanks a ton for your response! Truly amazed at your insight.


I’ve seen this kind of thing a time or two :wink: Glad that helped out though!
