Just in case someone else comes across what happened to me....
I am on Windows 10 and somehow I changed my setting to "not show animations in Windows" in my display settings. I was working on a carousel with slide and fade and finished it. I usually preview in Edge and other browsers....resting assured there was no problems for a simple Bootstrap carousel in Firefox or Chrome. Nope....no transitions happening when I viewed ...what the heck ? Every other browser but those two ?
So in Booststrap.css is a setting now that if the user turns off Windows "not show animation in Windows" it applies a media query prefers-reduced-motion which turns off transitions on certain components.
There is a setting in the sass files to disable this new feature....but for the sake of vertigo....I will leave it on.
