I changed settings of Windows firewall to block public and private networks to test Postgres installation in Windows 7, then I changed it back to default settings which allow both networks. However, when I access Stack Overflow site using Firefox 3.6.18 ,I am getting this message(inside a red ribbon)

Stack Overflow requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load.

However, Javascript is not blocked when IE or Chrome are used. I checked the options-content tab and it has Javascript enabled. So, I guess this is a problem with Firefox. To add to confusion,I am able to use scripts on using Firefox!

I have NoScript installed on Firefox.But I have set "Allow all this page" for this site. Even when I allowed "Allow scripts globally" I am getting this message. Any idea how to set this right?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Stack Overflow requires jQuery which is loaded via Google's CDN, residing on - so you will have to whitelist that.

In addition, Stack Overflow also makes use of scripts from, you make sure that's whitelisted as well.
