...and after posting one reply, magically the "Reply to this comment"
buttons appear.

Anyway, my response was to Southey.

I, too, have seen missing "Reply to this comment" buttons on LWN pages (for the past several years now, using various releases of Firefox). I think that refreshing the page restores these buttons. Any idea what's going on?

My guess is that this happened immediately after you logged into the site. It's a matter of getting the right stylesheet; the old, anonymous-user sheet doesn't time out for a minute or so after login. I know how to fix it, I think; it just kind of fell off the list. Putting it back now.

It's not just after logging into the site, as I remain logged in over browser sessions. I must still be logged in, as this was subscriber-only at the time I read it. I needed to refresh the page to see the comment button. Perhaps the anonymous style sheet gets pushed early in the visit before anything verifies the login cookie and changes the style sheet.
