Sometimes there is a long delay and I think it is my poor connection.

Posted links are occasionally done incorrectly and they will not resolve.

There is no switch that I know of and I'm on Win 10 and the latest Firefox. It is possible that there is a security setting blocking them, but I don't know details.

I have an old MacBook I use sometimes and things like that are much slower, you have to wait for it.

since that DUer was also using Firefox. See reply 11:

open the options in the menu drop down at the top right

in the content blocking choose standard. See if that does it.


Btw, reply 4 there about the My Account setting under Preferences on DU doesn't seem to affect whether tweets appear when you look at a post. It's for the little tabs in the lower left corner of OPs, to the right of DU Rec.

I'm wanting to return to the prior environment. I have no idea what caused Tweets to no longer display with the DU post.

None of the prior suggestions has worked.

after following prior suggestions, I cannot get back the prior DU behaviour.
