Twitter Posts Not Showing Up on Firefox 

Post#1 » by BoyzNTheHood » Fri Jun 25, 2021 2:16 am

Hey guys,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I'm having a problem seeing Twitter links when they're posted. I will see "Read on Twitter" instead of the full link. I will include screenshots at the bottom for reference.

So far these are the steps that I have tried:

1) I tried using Google Chrome and the links showed up in full, so I realized that it is not something new to RealGM.

2) I thought it may be because of Firefox, so I downloaded it on my phone but everything worked fine there too.

3) I decided to delete all board cookies, my entire internet cache, as well as all of my browser data. But still no luck after a restart.

I'm not really computer savvy so I apologize if the solution is simple. But this is as far as my PC knowledge goes.

Screenshots:

As you can see, it's the exact same post, but one can see the entire tweet while the other cannot. I will also say that Youtube videos show up fine if that's related at all.

Thank you to anyone who helps out!

I have the same issue and gave up trying to fix it a couple of years ago. Nobody gives a **** to make these things - or the advertising - to work properly.

Realgm has needed an overhaul for nearly a decade now, but it runs well enough that even in its neglected operating state, it has a large and loyal following makes money for Howard. That's it. It's like a restaurant with bad bathrooms and stanky beer and patrons who fight and corrupt bouncers that get off on mistreating people, but almost everyone keeps coming back and the money is good enough to keep the doors open - which doesn't come from the foor or beer but from endorsements and sponsors If it has made you money to do other things in life, why would you re-invest anything into improvements or make changes that risk losing revenue from the sponsors who like the cheap advertising relative to the high traffic flow and hiighway visibility for their signs?

It's really a shame.

I'm so salty man. If I'm using my PC it's frustrating to have to click on every "Read on Twitter" link :roll:

is it possible a Firefox add on is causing this?

It works for me about 90% of the time... tweets do occasionally just come back blank for me on here

This issue should be posted here.

I have issues on other sites with different browsers.

Did that work? It seems specific to some Firefox browser settings that may need to be adjusted.
