    I have 3 instances of MediaWiki 1.17 installed. On the first, this button works perfectly, clicking it will drop-down a little display over the page that notifies you that the page has been added to your watchlist, and then the button text changes to "unwatch."

    However, on the other 2 instances, when I click the button, it says "Watching..." but nothing changes--no drop-down or anything. If I go to my watchlist, the page hasn't been added.

    However, if I right-click the Watch button and choose "open" or "open in new tab" the dropdown displays as the full page, and then it works--it adds the page to my watchlist.

    I have Googled for hours, and can't find anything about this problem.

    Does anyone with any web savvy have any clue what's going on?

    No one? :(

    Even a guess as to what might be happening could help. <3
