Popup works in Safari but not Chrome- any idea why

Title explains my predicament. Can anyone take a look at this 3 scene project and help me figure out if this is a bug in Chrome or something I’m doing wrong. Here’s an early version of what I’m working on:

How do you access the pop up in this document? (What should we be clicking?)

Works for me – let us know if you see it again.

Ah yes, browser caches, wonder how many hours of wasted work are caused by them. Yes they do serve a function, but…
