I'm trying to award a bounty to an answer I received, but nothing happens when I click the button. I'm not sure if either of these factors might be responsible:

  • I'm currently in the 24 hour grace period after the bounty expired.

  • Though it was helpful, the answer doesn't solve my problem, so I haven't marked it as accepted (I have upvoted it).

Should I be able to award this bounty? What can I do if the button doesn't work?

    Try awarding it again, sometimes things happen.

  • What browser are you using? do have more than one account to login? Commented Nov 19, 2014 at 14:44

Using Chromium 38.0.2125.111 I can't award the bounty, but I tried it in Firefox 33.0 on the same machine and it worked fine.

  • Are you sure it wasn't just a glitch on SE's part?

    @Seth, I tried awarding many times, over the course of about three hours, including hard refreshes and browser restarts. Then with Firefox it worked first time. So I'm inclined to think it's the browser. Commented Nov 21, 2014 at 9:13
