I am using Chrome with some extensions (I don’t care about cookies, uBlock origin…) and when entering a forum which uses Discourse I can’t scroll. The page is blocked.
I have to delete the cookies to get it back working, but then I’m logged off
Why is this happening? maybe any chrome add-on?
@davidrdguez welcome to Meta
did you try chrome incognito mode to see if an extension is causing the issue?
When I try to log in with the incognito mode I get an error message such:
It seems your browser has the cookies deactivated. It is possible that you can’t log in without activating them first.
Maybe related with my problem?
that’s because you probably have
block all cookies enabled in your chrome privacy and security settings. just enable
block third-party cookies in incognito and you should be able to log in.
I just checked and I have the third-party cookies in incognito activated
ok, i’ve been trying to activate and deactivate the add-ons, it seems this was the problem
Auto Quality for YouTube™
Strange, I don’t see the relation between videos and a forum
I’ll see if it works now without the add-on
Also here they talked about it:
Hey, so I have been using Discourse myself for a while, and ever since around half a year ago, I’ve been getting a consistent error on any Discourse installation, be it my own, this one, or a different one.
The site locks down and I get the following console error:
This issue is easily “solved” by Ctrl + F5 refreshing the page, and then allows regular browsing, but as soon as I reload it normally, by opening it again at a later time, the bug repeats. I’ve no idea why this is happenin…
Thanks. Saved me a whole bunch of time flicking the add-ons on and off. Disabling this Auto Quality for YouTube fixes the issue with all the Discourse based forums I am on. It happened on both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (fully updated).
When the add-on is on - You cannot scroll down in forums. Not sure how is the add-on making this happen but CTRL + SHIFT + R seems to be a temporary remedy for those that need the Addon.
Is someone looking into this? What is the addon triggering? Why does it break discourse based sites?
