Weird error I'm getting here

Post by Pyrrho »

My entire screen is filled with "undefined" everywhere there should be text.

Seems to be a problem at my end only. Either that or my user account is somehow FUBAR but that seems odd since I'm logged in.

Fun times. Whenever I can remember my password I'll try a different browser. Could be a FireFox issue or one of the extensions.

Persons who need to contact me can find me elsewhere on the web...you know where.

Weird. Just weird.

Ok fine, works in a different browser. FireFox, not so much. It's only a problem at this site, though, and not others.

WHATever...

Problem solved...it was "Fox Replace" replacing everything with nothing.

Nothing to see here...move along, move along...

Q. Why is there something, and not nothing?
A. It's a setting in Firefox.

Fox Replace is a FireFox add-on that allows the user to set their own list of words to be replaced upon page load. If I didn't want to see the word "civility", I could replace that with "oh, and fuck," thus relieving any well-meaning censors of the burden of sanitizing their web sites on my behalf. I was using it for nefarious purposes.

Today, for some reason, it was overzealous. Any site for which I had set word replacements was replacing everything with the word "undefined."

Simplified my reading for the day, at any rate.

"A clean, well-lighted place."
