Merge request > 'show whitespace changes' checkbox does not refresh the page [CI v11.8.1]

Hello everyone,

In the latest update of Gitlab CI v11.8.1 I found the whitespace changes button to have been replaced with a checkbox (see screenshot). After changing the checkbox value the URL in the browser changes to include ‘w=1’ or ‘w=0’ but the page no longer reloads. Therefor the changes are only visible after manually refreshing the page. Anyone else has the same problem?
