I'm having an issue with the top row of the table used in the backend, where it has ID, Thumbnail, Name, Type, Attribute etc etc... and allows you so sort ascending/descending.

It was working perfectly fine yesterday, no changes had been done and today it looks like this:

Edit 1:
I also now have noticed its also on the Customer list: enter image description here
Its also on other pages such as viewing static blocks etc.

I managed to figure out the answer, it was Google's PageSpeed Insights apache optimizations, I needed to add the following to Pagespeed's config file to correct the backend issues.

ModPagespeedDisallow https://www.EXAMPLE.co.uk/admin/
ModPagespeedDisallow http://www.EXAMPLE.co.uk/admin/

ModPagespeedDisallow https://www.EXAMPLE.co.uk/pub/static/adminhtml/Magento/backend/
ModPagespeedDisallow http://www.EXAMPLE.co.uk/pub/static/adminhtml/Magento/backend/

This excludes the backend from its optimizations.

Please note, you will need to change EXAMPLE.co.uk to your domain and /admin/ to whatever your custom admin panel url is.

All of those need a asterisk (*) after each, but for some reason its not displaying on here.
