Can't access own profile pages due to ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT


(Adam Capriola) #1

I am getting this error:

When I try to access any URL like this: http://discourse.example.com/users/my_username

I can visit the profile of any other user though. When I disable SSO I am able to access my profile pages, so I believe this is related to SSO. I am on the latest build of Discourse.

If you look at the network requests in the inspector, what error code is being returned? It probably isn’t 404, so…

(failed)
net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT

Hmmm, seems like it might be an ad blocker that I recently installed causing this actually. Weird that disabling SSO fixed it too. All good now, thanks for the help!

Hah, I had issues in development with my ad blocker blocking track_click.js which just so happens to be integral to Discourse starting up.

And links working. That’s also an important thing.

Hmm maybe we should change the name of that function if it is blocked by default?

Nah it only shows up in development, where every file is loaded instead of being packed together. And it’s easily fixed, and I think it was because µBlock doesn’t have as many exclusion lists. I have to disable it on a few domains.
