Not sure where to place this topic when it comes to category, but for the most part I already know some understand the issue here. I know what’s going on with the widget. There’s a shield enabled for privacy protection, but I’d like the Twitter widget to work on the website without having to constantly disable the protection. And if this is the case for my browser, it surely is the case for all other browsers. I don’t want it to be a task to see a Twitter feed on my website. I want it to be visible as soon as you open up the page. Now I see people have made temporary solutions such as disabling the shield on the browser or just using a different browser. I want a permanent solution for everybody to find it visible without any hassle. Is this a possibility?
Fix on the category, but no help at all.
Are you using any ad or script blocking extensions in your browser? (what is the “shield” you’re referring to?). Twitter widgets work well across the internet with the majority of web browsers, so I’m surprised that you’re having issues.
The only extension I seem to have is a video downloader and it was doing this before I even got the extension. No ad block on the browser. The shield is a firefox only feature I believe. However an employee of mine has Internet Explorer with what I assume 0 extensions and it blocks the Twitter widget as well. It’s an outdated browser, but it should be no excuse for something so basic as a widget. The shield I’m referring to is this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection-pbm
I just want it to be available for everybody. Not just a specific group.
Twitter’s web widgets do require more recent versions of Internet Explorer (at least 10, and not running in IE 8 compatibility mode) in order to load.
Yes, that works fine in Safari 10, Chrome 58 and Firefox 52 running in default mode on macOS.
However, with private browsing mode on Firefox enabled, I see this error in the console:
The resource at “http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” was blocked because tracking protection is enabled.
When adding my widget in an iframe I get the message "Blocked by Content Security Policy
This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.
Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it." It’s frustrating, why cant the twitter feed be as simple as the facebook page plugin ?
