I'm currently not able to use Stackoverflow, AskUbuntu and I suppose many other websites using the same engine as the CSS seems to not appear. I've tried clearing cookies, I'm running on Ubuntu and the issue is happening both in Mozilla and in Chrome. Screen looks like this http://i.stack.imgur.com/Qurpi.png . I've seen other posts with this problem, but none of them resolved my issue. Here's console code that I get:

  • Are you behind a proxy of some sort? Where are you located? (the CDNs have regional endpoints.)

  • I'm not behind any proxy as far as I've checked in Ubuntu's networking settings. Nor did I download any proxy software. I'm located in Romania

  • Hmm, it seems strange that two CDNs would be refusing the connection actively, independently from each other. (Quantcast and Stack Exchange's CDN have nothing to do with each other as far I know). That's why I'm thinking it might be a proxy, or something else on your machine - maybe some overreaching security software? Not sure

  • Are you in a corperate network?

  • I'm not in a corporate network. I'm pretty sure I'm not using any proxy. Is there any way I could be aside from browser extension or through a modification in the Network page of Ubuntu?

I have no idea what the issue was, but now all of these work seamlessly. I didn't do anything but shut down my PC for a day, which should have no effect as I've rebooted it when the problem persisted. Thank you for the help provided, regardless.
