Tweet links no longer being seen

Post by LordMortis » Tue Nov 21, 2017 12:45 pm

links to embedded tweets now show a bird and loading...

It's not a big deal to me, but it is a phenomena and it just started.

I'm in SUBSILVER if that matters.

Maybe it's firefox killing them then to make firefox "faster"? *shrug*

Sounds more like a script blocker to me.

i posted in another thread that this will also happen due to the original tweets being deleted. when this happens, if the poster doesn't bother to transcribe the text, all you'll see in the post is 'Loading tweet' forever. (most recent example as of this writing: http://octopusoverlords.com/forum/viewt ... 8#p2527668 )

as it stands now, this leads to lots of thread gaps - not just for historical reasons, but even relatively quickly - i've seen this happen a few times this week already in posts that were a few days (or even hours) old.

it would be nice additional functionality to have the tweet tag code automatically transcribe or screenshot the original tweet when posted... probably would have to be a custom coding job.

A couple of days ago Firefox stopped displaying (most) embedded tweets. Instead there's a link that says "Loading tweet" with a picture of the twitter logo. Clicking the link says:

"Blocked by Content Security Policy

This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way."

The same tweets display fine in Chrome, and they worked fine in FF until a couple of days ago. To further confound the issue, some tweets still display properly.

This one displayed alright:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=93563&start=12280#p2537369

This one did not:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=93563&start=12280#p2537347

I'm not having any issues with tweets on Firefox.
We had subs. It was crazy

AFAIK it hasn't been fixed for the black theme (can't remember name right now).
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

I'm using SE Square Left. I don't miss the tweets so I'm not complaining.

Maybe that's it. I use the black theme. Odd that it worked fine for me up until two days ago.

Oh well, I can just use Chrome if there's a tweet I want to see.

So "NoScript" is probably responsible for seeing "loading tweet...", guess I gotta figure that out. I'd hate to miss anything Holman has to say. :mrgreen:
