In Firefox browser, I use uBlock Origin to limit 3rd party tracking.

When I login here, I get the message: "Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load."

Please state specifically what the other domain is that I need to open in order for this site to work (without habving to turn of uBlock origin altogether).

P.S. I have already allowed stackoverflow.com, same message appears.

This question came from our site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system.


You must at least permit stackexchange.com and stackoverflow.com. Probably also sstatic.net and ajax.googleapis.com. Those are the four I whitelisted for Android.SE. It also asks for googletagservices.com and google-analytics.com. The last one at least can be safely left out. Then there's googleusercontent.com which it most likely requires as well (else I hadn't whitelisted that).

Funnily, fewer of those are required for Meta …

    @bobn if that solved your issue, don't forget to "accept" the answer (ticking the check-mark next to it) to indicate so to other users :) – Izzy Jan 6 '18 at 23:17
  • I'll have to be at home to try it. won't be there for a while. – bobn Jan 7 '18 at 0:35
  • No prob, @bobn – just don't forget then :) – Izzy Jan 7 '18 at 10:18
  • Addkin ajax.googleapis.com did it. Thanks. Just as a note, not having google follow me around the internet is part of why I installed uBlock Origin in the first place. It's a shame that eveybody can't host all the pieces of code that make their websites work. (Not that I really mind google knowing I'm at stackexechange, it's the principle of the thing.) – bobn Jan 7 '18 at 16:27
  • My feelings exactly. One can partly work around that using Decentral Eyes (which provides the most common scripts like JQuery locally and rewrites the page code accordingly – would fit here as ajax.googleapis.com is mainly referenced for JQuery). You could give that a try. // Sidenote: On all of my web sites I take care to use external resources as little as possible. Especially no JavaScript from the "outer world". – Izzy Jan 7 '18 at 18:49
  • @iBug Why would they need JS? Only if one wants to upload images I guess. But no, sorry: I've not made an exception for that (neither do I see a block for it), and still can deal with those pics. So what makes you think it's needed? – Izzy Jan 9 '18 at 7:21
  • @iBug Again: I see no blocks for Imgur here. And yes, I do see those avatars – which btw. come from Gravatar afaik in most cases. Ah, mine comes from i.stack.imgur.com – and yes, I see it. But neither uMatrix nor NoScript show any JS loaded from there or blocked from there. – Izzy Jan 9 '18 at 7:26
  • @iBug that's what OP asked about, isn't it: "JavaScript from another domain … Please state specifically what the other domain is"? :) – Izzy Jan 9 '18 at 12:25
  • OP might clarify. Reading it again, that's a bit "opinion based" – depending what you count as "this site to work". Strictly speaking, it works well without avatars – but looks nicer with #D – Izzy Jan 9 '18 at 12:30
