Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Since some time (1 to 2 month), this site is no longer loading on my Computer at work.

I tried different browsers (Firefox 3.5.5 and IE 7).

The error seems to be in the scripts loaded from Loading them directly results in getting some code, but the browser will continue trying to load more.

StackOverflow is not displayed, until google times out.

My company is using "Websense" to block "unwanted" content.

Tell your company to go suck on a lemon? :> – Dav Dec 8 '09 at 12:30
:-) well, I wouldn't phrase it this way but... yeh... tell them that... – Dani Dec 8 '09 at 12:33
There are far worse things one could say. ;) – Dav Dec 8 '09 at 12:33
So you can't load the site, but have no problem posting to it. Takes this for you to register? – random Dec 8 '09 at 12:46
Have you thought of the possibility that maybe work don't want you slacking off, reading SO for 8 hours a day? :-) – paxdiablo Dec 8 '09 at 12:53

Sounds like your company blocks the Google-hosted jQuery library.

You'll need to talk to your administrators and see if you can get that unblocked.

More companies seem to block this than we thought :) RE: Who blocks google anyways! – RSolberg Dec 8 '09 at 16:52
@Chester: Stupid, Paranoid People. But they block all sorts of stuff; all you really need to do is ask, "do you filter your users' web browsing?" and if the answer is "yes" then expect things to break at random. – Shog9 Dec 8 '09 at 16:58

The site is working good, with 3.5.5 and IE7. works with or without ad-blocking software.

the problem is probably with websense....

The Firefox extension Decentraleyes, created in 2015, replaces CDN resources with local ones. Never tried it myself but looks promising according to the reviews.
