Facebook always missing clickable ticker in watchlist.

anonymous 11 months ago in Website • updated 11 months ago 2

For some reason, Facebook is missing a clickable ticker (FB) in the watchlist. Facebook is the only stock that this issue seems to occur for. I have tried clearing cookies, etc, for Seeking Alpha, but nothing seems to help. The problem happens on a Mac desktop, Mac laptop, Linux desktop, etc, all using Google Chrome.


I have attached a screenshot of the problem.

Hi alopecoid,

Here is how it looks for me in Chrome.


Are you logging in with the same user in all platforms with the same set of extensions ?  It is possibly a chrome extension which is editing our web page.

To confirm that this the case, go to the chrome settings  or chrome://extensions/

disable all plugins, restart chrome and see if the problem goes away.  If it does, you can re-enable the extensions one at a time until you find the buggy one.


Good luck, and please post the results of your findings.

Thanks,

Jacob 


Hi Jacob,


Yes, that seems to be the cause; the uBlock Origin extension must be filtering the Facebook ticker (FB) markup because it somehow confuses it with typical Facebook-related content.


Thanks for looking into this!
