Windows 7: Neowin Comments only shown in Opera Browser.

Neowin Comments only shown in Opera Browser.

Neowin Comments only show in Opera Browser. I done all the usual checks. I think it is either my router firewall or my isp blocking the comment section for Neowin. No, I do not have any parenteral control setup.

Here the web page I am talking about
https://www.tenforums.com/redirect-t...s-been-updated

My isp is Comcast.

I know it is not bad stuff, I am 100% positive on that. So, please don't suggest running that stuff.

It doesn't matter if I am using Firefox in Windows 7 or Linux no neowin comments.

It also effect Google Chrome and I.E. in WIndows 7 no neowin comments in those either.

For some reason it does work in Opera

Hi,
Show up fine for me,
Although not immediately but once you scroll to the bottom of the page they will/ should :/

Missing Comments?

Well those comments don't show up in any browser for me until I remove a certain domain from my HOSTS file.

If you're running any kind of ad blocker - unblock netshelter.net and the comments will display.

We are not allowed to discuss ad blocking under the Forum Rules - see #13.

I guess it's okay to talk about unblocking them.

Also check anything else that blocks domains in your other browsers. Restricted sites list and so on.

Thank you.

I just remembered something. I think avg free might be blocking that. Avg free web blocks don't work in Opera but work in I.E., Google Chrome and Firefox. I will disable that when I boot into windows. I don't why avg thinks neowin comments are maleware.

Mostly because AVG stinks

Confirmed. It is the AVG link scanner. I didn't know why I didn't think of that first. Stopping maleware is one thing, but disabling comments that is a bug.

I am using Free Avg because it is in the top 10 or top 20 and for the most part it does what I want it to do. I have removed the avg free link scanner.

I believe the comments act more like a popup,
Because they do appear after scrolling to the bottom of the page.
Always disable extensions to trouble shoot issues.

Well that netshelter domain does appear on a few anti-tracking blocklists. (Privacy issues)

Maybe take a look at:

HTTP analyzer and debugger

and have a look at Links, Embedded and Scripts and check out what's listed for netshelter.

As far as I can work out it's just tracking issues.

HELP! Opera Browser Dodgy!
Hi, I am using Opera 12 Build 1325 - I upgraded from 1317 yesterday. Sometimes, when I am using my computer, this error message comes up... ...then the application shuts down! Does opera not like something or is it dodgy? Should I get a safer version/browser?

How do I get Opera to install on my Windows 7 64 bit system. I tried to install it and it gave me a message that said it won't work on 64 bit systems - only 32 bit. Yet I've seen posts here and elsewhere where people say if works fine on 64 bit. What's the secret? Thanks.

Opera-The fastest browser!
The world's fastest browser just got faster! ;) Check it here. Opera breathlessly exclaimed, "You have never browsed this fast before." It said the browsing speed is thanks to a fast JavaScript engine called Carakan, which is apparently eight times faster than its predecessor, running web...
