Seeing Empty Posts?
Many user posts display to me as empty (no text or other content).

When browsing the forums, I see many individual's posts with no content displayed (no text or anything else shown). From the context of the conversation it is clear that others can see content in these posts.

These users are not blocked, my adblocker uBlock is disabled for Orbiter-Forum, and my browser is Firefox Quantum 65.0.2 running on Windows 10.

Any ideas? This happens when I browse as a guest as well as when I browse logged in, so I don't think it is a UserCP issue.


EDIT: Issue resolved - Firefox detected Twitter links as tracking content and blocked them.

Can you provide an example of a post you can't see?

... that sounds odd when I read it out loud. But then, I haven't spoken for hours. I mean... you know what I mean. Habeas corpus!

I've uploaded an attachment JPEG that shows the behavior I am seeing.

I need to check this, but it occurs to me that it may be something to do with users posting links. The attached JPEG shows this. It's impossible for me to verify this unless someone else quotes their post.

Hmm. The twitter link in that post will auto-embed. I notice Firefox is content blocking in your screenshot - it might well be blocking the cookie from Twitter, which could prevent the AME from pulling through.

Can you view the post content in another browser?

That apparently was the issue. Firefox was blocking Twitter links as being tracking content.

Thanks for your help!
