Topic # 101956 12-May-2012 19:53 Send private message

I have been having problems viewing comments (more specifically expanding them to view all of them) on a few websites. A specific example would be http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/blogs/voyages-in-america/6893674/The-role-of-cool-in-politics at the bottom. I can view the first 10 comments but when I try to expand the comments section to see the rest nothing happens. I also can't use the sort by oldest or newest first function.

With the stuff.co.nz website I also can't view any of the photo albums.

These problems are across all browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera) so I figure it has to be operating system specific. I am running XP professional with sp3 installed.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

I don't think it's operating system specific, because these rely on Javascript, which is implemented by browsers, not the OS.

What antivirus/antispyware are you running? Do you have any filtering settings in your router?

It's on my work computer so connected to their network. I had dismissed security settings as the guy next to me running essentially the same set-up on the same network has no problems. Could it be specific to how java is set up on my computer. I have had a look at msconfig and we seem to be running all the same services etc.

It's Javascript, not Java (different stuff). If your antivirus/firewall/antimalware filters scripts then it could be the explanation.

Also check each browser and see if scripts are enabled.

Thanks for that. Looks like I've got a few things to look at when I get back into work. It's good to have it confirmed that it is a Javascript issue.

Cheers.
