Hi Gil,

Welcome to Community! It's nice to meet you.

I found an example of a user with this issue in the Cloud support queue, and the issue was with an Ad Blocker add-on they were using in their browser.

Could you check if you have any ad blockers? If that's not the case, then you can try disabling all of your add-ons in your browser. See if the issue goes away. Then you can re-enable them one at a time, until the issue returns.

If the issue persists even with all add-ons in your browser disabled, can you tell me if other users on the instance are having the same problem? Does it persist across networks and various web browsers?

Thank you for your help!
