Unable to view Kinja comments 5.0.3rc2

Post by Rumble235 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 7:18 pm

I am currently unable to view any comments on the various kinja.com websites while using the NoScript plugin. I see an animation indicating loading, but they never load.
sample web page that does not load comments:
http://gizmodo.com/mars-might-have-had- ... 1793448182

I have tried using the latest development build 5.0.3rc2
I have tried using the option "Temporarily allow all this page"
I have tried using the option "Allow Scripts Globally (dangerous)"
I have tried looking for recently blocked sites that might be affecting this in the manner that blocked llwd.net broke BBC iplayer

these things did not allow me to view the comments.

I disabled the NoScript add-on in Firefox 52.0.1 and restarted the browser. This resolved the issue in an unsatisfactory manner.

When this issue occurs, do you see anything related in the Browser Console? (Ctrl-Shift-J)
(if you don't know what's related, turn off CSS warnings and post everything else you see)

Looks like it works with:

+kinja.com
+kinja-static.com
+google-analytics.com
+gizmodo.com

Maybe you have google-analytics.com blocked?

Normally I have gizmodo.com and kinja-static.com whitelisted. This was sufficient to allow me to view comments until recently.

Per my original post I enabled the option "Temporarily allow all this page" and separately "Allow Scripts Globally (dangerous)" for testing purposes. This was not sufficient at the time of testing. I expect that any particular site being blocked would have been revealed as the underlying issue by these tests.

However, it is interesting that you do not have the same issue. Perhaps my problem is related to some other NoScript configuration option. I also wonder if a Firefox configuration option could be the culprit, the security warning about a chrome .css strikes me as peculiar - though I have never opened the firefox browser console before today so I have no idea what is typically found there.

I've sent it to Giorgio, hopefully he will add it to next NoScript dev build.

Just a heads up, this fix may be responsible for some browser crashes that I haven't seen until now.

On what URLs? If this change is responsible for anything like that, the cause will be related to website code.
