Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When I go to the "Reputation" tab for my profile and click the "show removed posts" checkbox, the page suddenly jumps to this raw HTML/JS:

And it stays there, infinitely loading. This happens on Chrome 18.0.1025.151 m and Firefox 8.0.1, with no extensions/addons.

Any ideas why this is happening?

I am behind a proxy, but none of SE is blocked.

Maybe there's some funky cross-domain AJAX going on here?

The JS console log shows nothing.

The Network tab on the Chrome developer tool showed 1 GET and no errors. The response of the GET:

    "response": {
      "status": 200,
      "statusText": "OK",
      "httpVersion": "HTTP/0.9",
      "headers": [],
      "cookies": [],
      "content": {
        "size": 30614,
        "mimeType": "text/plain"
      "redirectURL": "",
      "headersSize": 19,
      "bodySize": 0

No repro on Chrome latest. – Cody Gray Apr 11 '12 at 1:43
At a glance, I think you have a crazy proxy between you and us...any idea if that's the case? – Nick Craver Apr 11 '12 at 1:44
I am indeed behind an organization proxy, but none of SE is blocked. Strange. – JBurace Apr 11 '12 at 1:45

@JBurace: Maybe the filtering regex decided that it doesn't like headers? Strange though. – Manishearth Apr 11 '12 at 3:58
Does this work when not behind that proxy? This has been reported nowhere else...I do believe the proxy you're behind isn't setup correctly. – Nick Craver Apr 16 '12 at 22:01
To notify people of comment reply please use @ for example adding @Nick in the beginning will notify him of your comment, otherwise he will most likely miss it. – Shadow Wizard Apr 17 '12 at 8:30
@NickCraver It does outside the proxy, at a friends place etc. Everything else (Google, Bing, etc) work just fine under the proxy so everything looks fine. Not sure how it wouldn't be setup right and cause this. – JBurace Apr 17 '12 at 19:51

When this happens, go to the Network tab of Chrome developer tools:

chrome network tab

And you will hopefully see something abnormal like error status that will shed some light on what exactly is being blocked.

I tried that and only saw 1 method "GET", which looked fine. See my post for the response of the GET. – JBurace Apr 17 '12 at 19:54
Looks like mime type issue - should be text/html not text/plain. – Shadow Wizard Apr 17 '12 at 21:04
Good point. I checked some other SE functions like "flag" and it returns text/html. Is SE sending it as text/plain, or is something on my end interfering and changing that? – JBurace Apr 17 '12 at 21:21
Your end otherwise we would have seen influx of reports... – Shadow Wizard Apr 17 '12 at 21:42
