Icons are randomly missing (invisible) in JIRA e.g. delete icon for comments, or icons in the wiki editor for issue description, comments etc. See sample screenshots below:


  • Problem occurs consistently with all web browsers, and from all client machines
  • Problem occurs when accessing JIRA with or without a web proxy.


These icons are loaded from tomcat cache located in the $JIRA-installation-directory/work folder. The tomcat file cache may be corrupt for some reason.


Restarting JIRA should force a re-build of the tomcat cache and resolve this problem.
