I'm trying to add some blog articles to my Reading section on the Careers site but nothing happens when I click the button.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to Edit Profile page at careers.stackoverflow.com.

  2. Scroll down to "Reading" section and click on "add an article or blog post you’ve read".

  3. Enter a URL of an online article into the box and click the "get article" button.

  4. Absolutely nothing happens.

Result: The URL stays in the box and there are no error messages, nothing loads onto the page... absolutely nothing happens. I've tried in Safari and Firefox and I've tried different URL's from various domains.


I tried Chrome and it finally worked. So it seems to be an issue of not failing gracefully when the browser is not good enough.
