I am unable to view any text on the OMG! Ubuntu! website. I am using Firefox 7 on Oneiric. I also have all the latest updates installed. I am using NoScript, if that matters. As you can see from the post, I have allowed all the necessary domains in NoScript. I even tried to view the page after temporarily allowing all scripts on the page using NoScript. Still got the same problem. So, NoScript is not the culprit here.

I was able to view this website properly a few days back on Oneiric. One day, I suddenly started getting this problem.

  • Https Everywhere
  • Personas

    Also, what happens if you press Ctrl+A on the page or use your mouse to highlight everything? Can you also try viewing the page's source to see if the text of the article is there? – Mendhak Oct 9 '11 at 12:07
  • You may want to provide a list of all the extensions you are using in Firefox. I can't reproduce this on my Oneiric install. – Knowledge Cube Oct 9 '11 at 20:52

    You should try launching Firefox in safe mode (all extensions temporary disabled) with this command: firefox -safe-mode – Stefano Oct 10 '11 at 20:27

    So, today I started Firefox from the terminal. And just like that, I could see all the text on omgubuntu.com. So, I closed the terminal and started Firefox normally. And I could still see all the text. So, my problem is fixed. Weird though! Thanks to all those who posted comments! Also, all my extensions (including Noscript) are running and I can still see all the text. – rigved Oct 13 '11 at 16:22
