Whenever I see a red banner stating:

Stack Overflow requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load. Retry using another source.

The "Add a comment" (blue link) button and the "Show 0 more comments" button freezes.
If I click on the button, nothing happens.
I have to refresh.

Also, if that red banner appears, the Stack Exchange icon on the top-right corner
puts me to the Stack Exchange main page instead of showing me a list of all 177 Stack Exchange sites.

If that red banner appears, spoiler blocks on Puzzling Stack Exchange will no longer stay shown after clicked.

    Things requiring JavaScript not working if JavaScript is not working isn’t unexpected. Use the browser console (dev tools) (hit F12). Do you see any errors or warnings? See the Network tab. Is there any resource not loading? Commented Aug 10, 2020 at 10:18
  • @user289905 "Show 0 more comments" should refresh the webpage in this case. Commented Aug 11, 2020 at 11:05
