Magnifying Glass for Pictures Broken

Currently, whenever I click on a picture, it obscures the rest of the page and I am unable to return to where I was reading. The escape key, refresh, and going to the previous page and back do not work. Sometimes there’s an x in the upper right corner that I can click, but most of the time it is not there. I suppose an easy solution would be to have the escape key close out of that popup, as of now it is the most aggravating feature on the site.

Don’t click on the picture. Problem solved.

Ignoring the problem doesn’t solve the problem (plus sometimes I click on it by accident, immediately regretting it).

just got hit by this issue.

cross.svg in upper right didn’t load
also noticed that the arrow-up-right.svg next to the image URL below the picture also did not load

Opening google chromes developer tools, and looking at the console shows these errors:
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED cross.svg
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED arrow-up-right.svg
