Additional information: When I allow the script "ajax.googleapis.com" I can add comments. Why is this script suddenly needed for comments?

Can you make sure that you don't get an Javascript error because of the missing ajax.googleapis.com, because scripts often stop running after first error on page. (BTW, I use google disconnect and this comment box works just fine).

It looks like we use JQuery from there, so a sound advice would be to unblock this domain. Why is it blocked in the first place?

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

Thanks for this hint. I basically try to avoid scripts to the extreme possible, especially google. Now I have to allow it to work here. Should there be an alternative in the future, I appreciate this very much.

@ROSt52 - if you are really after making your web activities untraceable, maybe is Tor for you?

@mahfiaz - What means "Tor" please?

See the source of this very page and search for jquery.

I suspect you either have some extension which blocks this script, FF 21.0 has a new security feature to block all scripts from external domains (for current site) or maybe your machine has modified hosts file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (it should generally contain only localhost and maybe some comments), if so your computer may be infected.

Why does ask.LibO use external jQuery when we could host it ourselves? It is to make use of browser caching, there are a pile of websites which all use jQuery and when everybody links to google API it has to be downloaded only once.

@mahfiaz - thanks for comments and help. I would like to run my FF without the ajax.googleapis.com script. and I am sure I did not use it before at AskLibO. The script you added to your answer, where and how do I need to run it? I have not much knowledge about scripts and am grateful for advice.
