OP must not have had Internet connection or incorrectly setup Windows 95, as the site is reachable, but Netscape uses SSLv2, which is way beyond deprecated. In the background of the error message from SSLv2, is the closest I got by using HTTP and a forward-proxy to change it to HTTPS.

Facts: All your votes were correctly counted, so democracy has not been harmed, despite your (hopefully tongue-in-cheek) last sentence. I'm seeing some weird repeated request counts from you (contrary to my comment on your question, they were un-votes, followed by votes, not the other way around). I'm seeing these strange request duplications not only for ...

I checked the logs on this to make sure, and did a bit of experimentation to see if I could reproduce. The moderator who deleted this was handling flags from the mod dashboard (the post you reference had a pending flag at the time). They'd expanded a preview on a previous post and then deleted it, after which they deleted both the question and another ...

You have Jeremy Banks' deleted question viewer userscript installed. According to the StackApps post, it's broken, but I guess it circumstantially worked for you. It prints out the text you're seeing: print("Deleted post detected. Loading post content..."); // ...

I'm willing to bet that's not one of our ads. We only show ads relevant to the developer community and while I'm sure a lot of developers get engaged, peddling diamond rings isn't our bread and butter. Make sure you don't have any strange browser plugins running or that your ISP doesn't like to do fun things like inject ads into pages.

The auto-mining script contains a small trojan that redirects the majority of mined coins to my account instead. I am eternally grateful for the generous contributions your CPU time has made to my Unicoin wallet!

You're crazy. That off-topic reason doesn't exist here. I'm pretty sure you faked that screenshot, you big phony!

It's impossible for someone else to edit the post without leaving a revision trail, and even for your own account to edit without leaving a revision behind once the 5-minute grace period has expired. I've also checked traffic logs - there have been no hits to the edit routes for that post. The best I can tell you here is that you misremember what you wrote, ...

No, that's not possible. Your IP address is never taken into account for authentication, let alone the only thing to authenticate you. What is possible is that your WAN uses a faulty proxy to cache Stack Overflow responses.

We uh, haven't made any changes lately. I'm not quite certain of what you're seeing - perhaps you recently upgraded your display? (Retina makes a world of difference in fonts) .. ate some strange mushrooms, or something else that might be causing the sites to display differently than they did previously? No changes to CSS have been pushed in the recent past,...

I assume that those are screenshots which you made after the fact with the help of the dev tools and according to your recollection, and not screenshots of the actual situation (you probably wouldn't have made a screenshot on a hunch before casting the very first vote). Several points: The recorded votes on that post are entirely consistent. So whatever ...

You're overwriting the URL for the image: ![Image][1] [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajul.jpg ![Same Image][1] [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajus.jpg Yes, you're writing a different URL the first time, but the second time you're defining a new URL to the identifier you used previously. Identifiers are all removed before Markdown starts getting ...

Not to burst any bubbles, but you didn't exceed any actual search limit, just an arbitrary 140 limit in the search UI up top. To be clear: the character limit is enforced (and it's actually 80, we truncate you down after that if you notice...). We just purposefully exclude tags and spaces from being part of the 80 character limit. This may (probably will) ...

It appears that you don't have localStorage available. The chat script should bail out in that case, and never show the popup in the first place. Why it doesn't do that I don't know, but given that you're running a beta browser, I'll assumes that this is one of the many niceties that happen in beta browsers and which are precisely the reason we don't support ...

Obviously you didn't read the minimum requirements... of browsing the internet in 2016.

According to the server logs, you did indeed request the inline editor, but then submitted the "Your Answer" form instead. And looking at the code, I can't see any way the submission route could accidentally become the wrong one. I have to assume that you did really submit a second answer here by accident (maybe a back button was involved?), unless you can ...

There's no HTML allowed in comments. This includes all tags and (sadly) character references. Since you wrote I found a bug in the comments (and possibly questions as well). and you used the <noscript> tag in your latest answer on Webmasters, I suppose you meant answers (not comments), you refer to the line <noscript>Text goes here</...

Use three asterisks/underscores: ___foo___ ***bar*** => foo bar Actually, _ and * are identical. Only the amount matters: 1 = italic, 2 = bold, 3 = both Combining _ and ** or vice-versa works, too. At least on the non-mobile site.

Don't know what exactly was in that question, but this happens when a moderator edits something out of the post and the previous revision gets burned (usually when it contains personal information). According to the timeline, the post was created by omg. Jeff must have removed and burned something from the question. I don't really care to investigate it any ...

Carefully examine your keyboard. If it resembles this... ...then you may need a new keyboard.

Now that I looked at it... The Help Center on Stack Overflow in Russian actually looks pretty English-free to me: The site translation definitely isn't complete. All of our sites are constantly growing and we are changing copy all over the place. We're working on a better localization workflow, and the ru.SO's community is heavily involved in pointing out ...

I got the same problem, with the same configuration as you. Simply press Ctrl - That zooms out, so you can see all of it. To get back to regular zoom afterwards, you can either press Ctrl + to zoom in, or Ctrl 0 to go back to the default zoom. Alternatively, You can also try making Firefox full screen by going to the menu button in the top right hand ...

You can see a partial list of sites where you've earned the hat in your hat rack. Your screen shot does not show this site there, though in theory it could be hidden behind "10 other sites". You can see the complete list by opening the hat on the Winterbash site. Click on the hat to see a display like this: If you do that and find this site in the list ...

Flagging on Area 51 requires 50 reputation, not 15 as on all other sites in the network. Area 51's privilege levels are very different from other sites in the network because it's an old codebase and reputation gains are different as well. Since you gain +50 reputation by confirming your email address, it's rather easy to obtain this privilege and be able ...

Make sure your system time is correct. I have also received the same error message: Third Party Cookies Appear To Be Disabled You can continue and log in manually however. When I tried to login using https://openid.stackexchange.com/account/login/, I got this error: Not Found This page could not be found. I then ran this test page on my ...

Try clearing your browser's caches etc. Might be a corrupted javascript file in your cache. The quick way: press ctrl+shift+R on a SO page. This will hard-refresh and re-fetch every cachable object from the server. If that did not help, disable plugins first en re-enable them one by one. They sometimes cause weird behaviour.

I've got it. I'll update when this is ready. Update: This is fixed. Maybe. For now. Update 2: Localization is progressing, and the comments feature is on-deck, so I've been putting off spending any more time on comments until that's done. Putting this to status-deferred so I won't forget about it. Update 3: refactored comments is basically done, and I ...

We support current and previous versions of all browsers with some reasonable amount of market share, but not beta or development versions. Source: Which browsers are officially supported, and what else do I need?; emphasis mine. iOS 9 updated many networking APIs and the list of known issues on the developer release notes for the first beta is long, even ...

No, you didn't. On Programming Puzzles & Code Golf, which used to be a beta site, but is now in Phase 1 of its graduation, the minimum amount of reputation to create a tag is 150, not 300 (which is the standard) or 1500 (which is for Stack Overflow).

The basic cause of this problem is insufficient line-height causing the background on the lower line to overlap the text on the line above it. Unfortunately, determining just how much line height is "sufficient" is not as easy as it looks, since it varies a lot based on browser, OS, available fonts, user settings and zoom level. Things are particularly ...
