It works for all other Stack Exchange sites I use.
I tried it with a different Firefox profile, tried it as guest, cleared cache etc. When I logout and try to vote up a question, nothing happens. If I try this on any other SE site, I get the Thanks for the feedback! pop-up, asking me to login.
In Chromium everything seems to work fine.
I’m using an older Firefox version (20.x) currently (can’t test it with the current version atm). If this should be the reason for the broken JS, then why is this not the case for all other SE sites? Tested it with the current version (23.0.1) on a different OS: same problem there, too.
- In the error console, I get the following error when reloading the page:
TypeError: localStorage is null
- I have the very same problem with
japanese.stackexchange.comalso: no voting etc. possible in Firefox
- Thanks to the error message about localStorage, I now know what’s causing this bug: the about:config setting dom.storage.enabled =
false(it needs to be
trueif you want to use any JS functions here)
