asl checkbox flashes for a second and then disappears #27
I'm experiencing this issue as well.
I had been using 0.3.9 for about ten months (May '15) with no problems and used the same cautious search settings for that period (7 second delay / 70 results per search). Last week my account was disabled at about the same time someone opened an issue here about how they were detected and disabled as well.
I was able to regain access to my account after a couple days without admitting to the caretakers/support that I was using an add-on, but that's when I began experiencing this issue. I was still using 0.3.9 when this started.
I updated to 0.4.4.4 (current master) a couple days ago, but that did not correct the issue. The checkbox is still flashing up for a second and then disappearing.
Due to the recent issues people are having, I'd guess that Fetlife made some updates to the site code or their add-on detection last week, but I do not have evidence to support this.
Running on Windows 8.1, Chrome Version 48.0.2564.109 m (64-bit) with Tampermonkey v3.12.58.
I'm assuming because I really don't know how fet is checking or the script is injecting but:
Is there anyway, we can make the IDs and class names unique on every load?
Good to know I'm not the only one having this problem. With the "extended" version I have different experiences on my PC and laptop... On my PC, which is currently running Windows 7 with Firefox, nothing appears at all on Fetlife, but on my laptop (which has Windows 10) a check box will briefly appear and then disappear.
With the classic version of the script, the not "extended" version, on both computers some text that says "ASL search?" appears at the top of the web page but there is nothing to click on, it's just text. Both things happen on Chrome as well.
I also had my account temporarily deactivated around a week or so ago and sent an E-mail asking what was going on. I never got any reply but my account was active again the next morning. I never thought about it, but it was after this that the script stopped working so it could very well be that Fetlife increased security or something.
It's a shame, really. I really enjoyed this script. Thanks to the script I was able to make a couple local friends and I liked being able to find local people that shared some of my interests to chat with. I really miss the script...
This is fixed in f7ad8b2, released as version 0.4.5. If you have a recent version of this script, it will automatically update. If you don't, you should uninstall and re-install this script by clicking here.
For those curious, have a look at the precise block that fixes the issue. (Well, works around the issue, anyway, since the "fix" is really to tell FetLife to stop being dicks, but, LMAO, y'know….)
