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

On stackoverflow I can't click things that have JavaScript-functionality, like answering, upvoting, commenting and so on. Preview of a new question is also not working, it's just like if JavaScript wasn't enabled or if an error in the JavaScript code prevents everything from being executed. Only editing works. So I can't comment your answers on this ticket, too - weird...

I checked this in Opera, Chrome and Firefox (in Firefox it worked for about 2-3 pageviews, then stopped working), and everywhere JavaScript is enabled (it's really enabled, and no plugin interference). Firebug in Firefox doesn't throw an error.

It doesn't work here or on either.

UPDATE (since I can't reply to comments): It's totally weird.. I emptied the caches, and called this page in IE8 where I never visited (or meta) before. And it doesn't work here, too....

Can you try Ctrl+ F5 first to make sure all the Javascript is up to date? – Pëkka Dec 16 '10 at 11:40

Update... ARGH!! the solution was to deactive my AntiVir-programms "WebGuard" (which seems, activated itself upon the last upgrade).

Talk about malware doing stuff without the user's knowledge... – balpha Dec 16 '10 at 14:22
