FYI,

I've tried the fix posted by David Cervone and it works.
I've also written small note on using mathjax with make4ht and
added it to my tex4ht cheat sheet showing the setup
I am using

https://www.12000.org/my_notes/faq/LATEX/htch4.htm#x5-690004.2

The fix is to disable fast preview. I've edited Michal style

....
<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
MathJax.Hub.Config({
'fast-preview': {disabled: true},  <---- added this line
TeX: {
extensions: ["color.js","AMSmath.js"],
equationNumbers: { autoNumber: "AMS" }
},
......

What this does is prevent the double refresh. It will not
show the full math untill mathjax is done processing it.It seems
like a new option added to mathjax.

I do not know if Michal wanted to also add this to his
style file or not. At least if this could be made an option,
that will be good.

Will keep testing mathjax with make4ht.
