I cant seem to be able to comment or click random links in Stack Overflow as well as this site. I think its an IT problem here at work, but I need to point them in a better direction than "I can't click a link".

If I look at the Console in Chrome I see this error

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string full.js:166

This same problem is happeing in IE, Chrome, and Firefox.

Anyone have anyideas.

I have posted questions on StackOverflow but can't respond.

This has worked in the past, and I just have noticed it a few days ago.

Sounds like your company firewall munges the site javascript, introducing syntax errors. Without the javascript, many site functions won't work. – Martijn Pieters Apr 10 '13 at 19:30
What happens if you connect to SO using https instead of http? It's possible that will get around the firewall's tampering. – Richard J. Ross III Apr 10 '13 at 20:03
Hmm, this is weird. I can comment here but not on SO. The HTTPS didn't work either. – dvreed77 Apr 10 '13 at 23:30
I'm also running into this issue. I'm fairly sure it's not the company firewall since a) I can comment here and b) I could comment on SO yesterday. Did you resolve this problem? – ckersch Apr 25 '13 at 15:35
