Shields Up - On
Block Scripts - Off
Ad Control - Block Ads

Steps to reproduce:
1 - visit
2 - click Find Community dropdown

Dropdown doesn’t work unless Ad Control = Allow Ads and Tracking

Hi @jadiaz,

I’m assuming that due to the nature of the website, you’re required to provide some sort of location/tracking information before you can select any of the listed communities. Open your Shields panel, and under “Ad control” select Allow ads and Tracking. You should now be able to use the menu as intended.

@Mattches - interesting. Using FirefoxDevEdition with noScript and tracking blocking on still renders the site and allows the dropdown to work.

I understand that setting Allow ads and Tracking would make it work. Posted this to give you guys a heads up that other browsers with restrictive policies still work with this site.

We can close this post.

Thanks for the heads up! I’ll dig into this.
