Can't access discussions on Firefox

I am greeted by a blank page on Firefox regardless of which version of the discussions I access:

It seems it loads the page as the source is not empty, but the JavaScript is not being loaded; it just performs a single GET.

Works fine on Chrome. I assume it's related to an ongoing problem: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28282779, https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28273530

on Chrome https://forum.duolingo.com/topic/subscriptions/new doesn't work either if you load the page directly

if you go to https://forum.duolingo.com and then choose "new" then it works fine

I've been having sporadic problems wth the forums loading blank / template pages lately. In some cases, copying and pasting the URL into a new tab solves it. Other times it doesn't.

I wonder if the servers are overloaded, as the problem is intermittent?

Was having this since last night as well. Cleared my cache/cookies since that usually solves firefox site issues but no dice. It would allow me to access Discussion if I went to the main Duo page first and then clicked on the Discussion tab, but trying to reload directly from the discussion tab or by hitting the back button would get an error. Same with opening a topic, I could open it directly in the window but it wouldn't load if I tried to open it in a new tab.

It seems okay now? What an oddly specific issue.

Edit: Next day it's happening again. :(

Same here until I updated Firefox and its add-ons to the latest versions. Everything works now.

I was getting the “Cannot GET «URL»” message for about a day. It now seems to be working again, but I didn’t need to update either my outdated version of Firefox or the outdated add-ons that I use.

It was a Duolingo problem, not a Firefox problem.

It's possible that I updated just before things returned to normal then. Simple coincidence...
