I am using Chrome version 28.0.1500.72 m.

Failed to load resource
https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

A bug report has been filed with Chrome.

I tried to put this code in a blank HTML page but it works fine on my Chrome 28.0.1500.95 on Mac.
Do you have a full page example that has this problem?

Problem is happening at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines

Follow on to using URL https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines to see the problem. When I use an Incongnito Browser, the widgets.js loads as expected.

It appears that normal mode and incognito mode send out fundamentally different requests:

Colleague of mine was having this issue. I narrowed it down to the ‘DoNotTrackMe’ extension. Most likely being falsely identified as some sort of tracking script.


#6

I had a longer post that didn’t get past the moderator Here is what I believe is happening. Twitter is storing the widget.js as a compressed file on their website. The Normal Chromium browser is not sending the “Accept-Encoding” flag causing the twitter site to not be able to provide a file. BTW, page functions normally in a Chrome Incognito Browser (that send the “Accept-Encoding” flag).


#7

I have the same issue … and the same results. Incognito window works. Normal Chrome browser fails. It’s been 21 weeks since the last post. Has there been any update from Google about this?


#8

I am also having this problem. Incognito works fine, normal chrome does not load.


#9

I’m having exactly the same issue: http://js.ework.me/day-8-no-share-buttons-in-my-posts-why/


#10

Yep. This happens in Chrome mac for me ONLY when I have the Disconnect (don’t track me) plugin on. Once I whitelisted my site, it appears immediately.

So the plugin is preventing the twitter script from loading.
