For some reason the module is not detecting the flexslider library even though I've got it in:
sites/all/libraries/flexslider/jquery.flexslider-min.js

When I run a status report, it says:
FlexSlider library not found. Please consult the README.txt for installation instructions.

The slider works fine because the library is in fact there and flexslider is in fact using it. I know there was a similar problem which someone came up with a patch for in 7.x-2.x-dev: https://www.drupal.org/node/1929696

I'm wondering if this is related to the scramble in chrome. When I first load the page in chrome, the images in flexslider briefly appear in a list format, then in the slideshow format... It looks gross. Doesn't seem to be happening in other browsers.
