Is cloudflare.com new here?

As of today, I need to allow it in Firefox's NoScript before I can access "actions" such as recommending posts, etc., or "hey mods."

Re: Is cloudfare.com new here?

cloud flare hosts jquery as an api service just like google does. This changes weeks ago not today.
if you use noscript you need to be aware that domains used to host js Apis can change and without any notice. jquery is commonly fetched from 3rd party api servers.

Thank you for explaining. Am surprised it waited to cause issues for me since you say the change was that long ago.

It caused issues with me just today also.. I uninstalled noscript since it didn't recognize I had dslreports whitelisted.

it has been weeks, what has changed yesterday is that the way the javascript modules are loaded in, they are chained after the page loads instead of being in the header.

I think noscript doesn't know what it is doing.

For what it's worth, functions are fine with cloudflare allowed in NoScript.

Re: Is cloudflare.com new here?

Tried an older version of noscript and it still didn't recognize dslreports whitelisted then allowed cloud flare and it finally worked so will upgrade to the latest since it appears not to be a new element to noscript.

I first noticed that on Monday.

All seems fine once cloudflare is allowed. Otherwise some stuff is broken.

Re: Is cloudfare.com new here?

The overseas cloudflare server is causing delays in pages loading, and as discussed some features are dependent on it now.

why would it be overseas it's a cdn you get a local one.
do you have a link to a cloud flare status page showing it is slow? don't forget jquery only gets loaded once after that it is fully cacheable and the server should not be involved.

Pages were loading as slowly as ten seconds in some cases as my browser waited for cloudflare.com to respond, or sometimes close to timeout rarely. I was initially able to fix that by completely preventing the cloudflare frames from loading. It was night, and day. Block cloudflare, and the page loaded in less than a second. At the moment things seem to be ok.

It appears another tools database was incorrect, but I previously had cloudflare pegged in south america. I did a new whois, and it's supposed to be in the states, just a state over, however there were some serious loading delays with that domain causing me to block it previously.
