For the last few days, I am unable to add tickers to the old chart links. The Menu opens but remains blank and nothing happens on Enter. Changing Pop-up permissions doesn't do anything. That is BAD news as that make the old links useless for comparison.
I hope that this is temporary and that the feature will return. Or, this may be first steps to deactivate old chart links - like it happened to all old Discuss links.
I also noticed this. We can only hope that we don't lose what may be one of the best features of M*. I am trying everything. Will report. They, being M*, may not even know what they are doing. It may be by accident. I will contact tomorrow, if not resolved by then, although maybe I shouldn't. Hope it comes back first.

Yup, it's dead. Amazing that it went unnoticed for so long. You have to chuckle at how M* has disabled every useful feature it ever had. I've said time and time again that this was one great psychological experiment and we were the mice running around in mazes and wheels. (M* actually has a Behavioral Psychology Research Department; there used to be a link on their corporate web site, but it's gone underground.)
mrc , the new M* charts have fewer features than the old M* charts. Most important for many is that the new charts cannot be linked. So, like you did, one can only post them as static image/attachment that cannot be modified/edited in anyway.
Old charts were linkable and editable/modifiable. So, if somebody posted a multi-ticker chart, and you thought that some other ticker may be more useful, you could just edit that link and repost. Of course, they old M* charts still exist as single charts but they cannot be used for comparison as the box to add tickers has been deactivated. It is like a strategic sabotage by whosoever is tinkering with them.
yogibearbull Just an idea: find a previous link where you compared various funds. Then go into the link (i.e., into the URL's guts) and change the tickers, just as you do to start the "Chart" page with the fund you want. This new dysfunctionality appears to be related to the compare box, not to the charts themselves. Starting with an old link might work. (Note: the links are very long strings of gobbledygook, so this may be a cumbersome workaround.)
