Starting yesterday, pages on Stack Overflow have been coming up as text and links only, no images or CSS. It is only doing this in Chrome, and only for stackoverflow.com.

Chrome developer tools console shows the following:

Failed to load resource https://cdn.sstatic.net/stackoverflow/all.css?v=da12668b668c
Uncaught ReferenceError: StackExchange is not defined dynamic-dependency-injection:18

Example of a URL that shows the error: Link to Sitecore Media Item

I don't have adblock or JavaScript blocked. Is this a browser issue? I'm using Chrome Version 28.0.1500.72 m on Windows 7 Enterprise with SP1, 64 bit.

  • Happening here(Auburn Hills, MI) too for roughly the last week. Edit...as I typed, it started working.

  • That happened for me briefly in Chrome yesterday, then by the time I got home (a few hours later) it worked fine. Perhaps a particular version. I'm on 27.0.1453.116 m still, though, same as I was the day it happened.

    Are you, by chance, behind an iPrisim filter?

  • @PaulH I am experiencing this issue, and yes, I am behind an IPrism.

  • I suspect it's an interaction between chrome and iprism that causes this. There was a similar issue last year: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=130293

  • @PaulH I am behind iPrism as well. After looking at the thread you posted, I tried launching chrome with the "--disable-tls1" flag and I'm still seeing the error. I'll talk with our Security manager to try to see if there is something in iPrism that can be corrected.

  • It happens quite frequently recently. Now stackoverflow is not showing properly now..

  • It looks like this has been fixed (for me, at least). I notice the css content that was previously at "https: //sstatic.net/..." is now at "//sstatic.net" and any attempt to access SO over https redirects to the http connection.

We also had this issue and are using iPrism. According to our admin, he was able to fix this issue by applying one of the latest patches to the iPrism system. I've yet to see the issue reappear since he told me the patch was applied.

  • Fixed for me after the latest iPrism patch. Marked as answer. Thanks to PaulH for the tipoff.
