Problems accessing the forum from Ubuntu



Reported by Mackenzie Mathis (on an otherwise unrelated GitHub issue):

I cannot open the link to your forum on Ubuntu machines, […] it just tries to load but is always a blank screen.
Neither of them open for me in Firefox or Chrome.

Did anyone encounter similar issues? (I know it might appear absurd to ask this on the forum, where those affected might not be able to see it :smile: but maybe some of you can test on different machines, or know workarounds?)


Hello Jan (and Mackenzie) -

For what it’s worth, I have been routinely viewing this forum (and its
predecessor) with chrome on ubuntu, and I don’t recall ever having
problems (except during announced transition periods).

I use chrome “Version 66.0.3359.139 (Official Build) (64-bit)” and
“ubuntu 16.04 LTS”. I currently use the url “”.

I also just now tried it with firefox without problems.

Thanks, mm


Sorry all, seems our IT department at Harvard blocked this cite for suspicious subnet activity … anyhow, I’m here now and interested in being a community partner for #deeplabcut
