Since a couple of days I'm no longer able to view more than 5 comments nor to add one myself. This happens on two different up to date android tablets, one with an older firefox (the last one allowing about:config), the other with nightly.

Any idea what changed on the site last week?

  • Before reading your link, just want to mention that I posted this question using Seamonkey. My answer to that would thus be "no". I use Seamonkey full-time on StackExchange. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 10:11

    Do you get any error messages in the console? There have been changes made to the site's Javascript, that was the reason SeaMoneky stopped working.

  • Thanks @RobertLongson for reading my post before commenting. I'm afraid it's a 68. Can't check the nightly currently. In the mean time I found meta.stackexchange.com/questions/372734/…, where it says "fixed" ? Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 10:34
  • @Luuklag, I'll be sure to give that a try this afternoon, looks an interesting exercise. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 10:36
  • Does clicking on the vote count to see the breakdown between up- and downvotes work for you btw?

  • It doesn't, the timeline does, and clicking on my inbox often gives me my profile (even when the URL says tab=inbox). Someone at SE must be enjoying h(er/im)self. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 10:51
  • @GerardH.Pille see meta.stackexchange.com/q/372590/361484 for the reasoning behind all this (probably)

  • @Luuklag, that's the same as in my comment above ... 'where it says "fixed"'. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 12:29
  • Pff, remotedebugging, had to install a desktop version 68, which upgraded faster than I could disable it. The fifth time I installed it as root, which prevented that carroussel. The console shows: "TypeError: l.replaceAll is not a function", stub.en.js:1.861. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 15:34
  • At position 686 I see "l=function(e,t,n,o){...}" while replaceAll expects it to be a string prototype. Commented Dec 13, 2021 at 16:00

    LOL. Closed because "this question already exists", pointing to a question added 15 hours after mine, 6 hours after I found the cause. I'm good, but not clairvoyant. Commented Dec 14, 2021 at 9:51

replaceAll needs a newer javascript engine. On Android eg., it needs at least Firefox version 79. See developer.mozilla.org. It mentions that core.js has a polyfill for that function.
