First, as always, I navigate to "Upload" in the upper-right of the screen.
The next page offers two options: "Choose a file to Upload" or "Start a New Recording". I want to record from my chromebook's microphone, so I choose the second option.
Normally, the page that appears has a circular "REC" button. Click on it, and the recording starts.
Today, though, that page only flashes for an instant before switching to the default page to upload audio, which of course is completely useless to me.
How do I fix this issue? I have tried restarting, clearing my browser history and cache. There has been no change.

I have fixed my own problem! I stumbled upon the solution completely by accident.
The problem was with Adobe Flash player. I followed these instructions from Google:
How to Turn on Adobe Flash Player
- On your computer, open Chrome.
- In the address bar at the top, enter chrome://plugins and press Enter.
- Under "Adobe Flash Player," click Enable, or check the box labeled "Always Allowed to Run"
