Unreadable English Wikipedia on Chrome: Browser Extension for Solution?

In summary, the English Wikipedia page changed from using "displaystyle" to "$" which caused unreadability on Chrome. The speaker is looking for a browser extension to solve the problem. They later mention having issues with their firewall, but were able to solve it by resetting their Chrome settings.

The English Wikipedia page seemingly changed from using "displaystyle" to "$" with the consequence that I can't use it anymore on Chrome. It is simply unreadable. Does anyone know a good browser extension to solve the problem?

I don't understand, can you provide a link and a screenshot?

As soon as I can load it at all. I tried an extension and it seems it blocked access, even after deinstallation. English is now the only language version I have no access to.

I solved the problem with a reset of the Chrome settings. It was apparently a firewall issue. I can read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page if I shut off my firewall, but only then. Strange, since all other language versions work.

Thanks.
