[IPython-dev] IPython Notebook input boxes

I did the full un-install and re-install, and it seems to have worked for
the moment.  I don't think it is a very robust solution long term.  I don't
want to do this every week or so.  I don't want to be locked into not
installing updates periodically.

Any better answers out there?

Or maybe you could try just removing the ipython configuration directory?

especially weird that you see the same in different browsers, so it can't be
something with the cache or a broken browser update. The only thing I can
think of to try is removing IPython and installing it again.
