Extended A/S/L search won't load in Firefox #9
Product: Fetlife A/S/L search Extended Version: 0.4.4
Is it reproducible: Yes
Identical to the image from #8, I can see the checkbox, I open it, but the advanced A/S/L search is just a blank rectangle.
The "Classic Search" does open but is slower than it used to be.
Steps to Produce/Reproduce
It should work
It doesn't work
Tried copying the "Server" folder & contents into the containing folder for the script, didn't work.
I think this is an installation problem. After installing as described there are only two files in the GM folder,
I searched for the string "Choose a minimum and maximum age" but didn't find it in these files. (In the old version everything was contained in one js file)
I did find this string in the "search-form.html" file on this website.... which makes sense except I have no clue how to install it.
If search-form.html and the other files under "server" are needed to run the script (and it seems very likely they are) I just need to know where to put em/ how to install them.
I appreciate any help you can give, I've been using the old A/S/L script for a while and think it's great.
I have the exact same setup described above (Firefox 38.0.5, Greasemonkey 3.2, and FetLife ASL Search 0.4.4). I uninstalled everything, reinstalled everything, and still can not reproduce this problem.
Nope, that's actually exactly what's expected to be in your Greasemonkey folder. (The installation seems to be fine. If you want to be doubly sure that the installation is fine, check the integrity of those two files using the SHA-1 digest. You should have the following

You're not the only one having this problem but, unfortunately, I have experienced absolutely none of the problems described and so I don't really know how to approach resolving the issue because the issue doesn't exist for me. It's certainly not a Firefox/Greasemonkey/script issue, though.
Another thing you can do to troubleshoot the issue is edit line 77 of the
to be this:
and then open up Firefox's Web Console while reloading a page on FetLife. This should produce some amount of output from the userscript as well as reveal any other errors that may be causing the problem. Copy that and post it in this issue thread.

Here's some output from the console after turning on the debug...

This one was interesting:
Load denied by X-Frame-Options: https://script.google.com/macros/s/AKfycbxjpuCSz9uam23hztGYyiE6IbHX22EGzhq7fN4jQGo1jiRp520/exec?embedded=true does not permit cross-origin framing.
When I went to the site listed I saw the missing frame http://i.imgur.com/PWaZAby.jpg, it was even functional except it didn't give any results.
I wonder if the combination of Vista and Firefox is causing the "Load denied" message. I'm running a Mac, and I don't see that message. I'll look into it when I have a moment.
Meanwhile, what do you mean "it didn't give any results"? I get plenty of results for most searches.
@JayKeelz , yes, the issue is certainly related to the
I might just change the behavior of the script to do for Firefox what already happens in Google Chrome (i.e., simply open in a new window, directly, rather than have the server code framed), but I'd still like to know why the difference in Firefox's behavior based on the OS used. It seems like a bug in the browser to me, actually. Hmm.
Meitar, just want to say thanks for all your help on this, I agree it must be either a Firefox bug or a "Vista is altering how Firefox works" sort of thing. Using the server link to search works. (I played around with the search criteria and the "it's not giving any results" thing was just me making the search too narrow, duh.)
For anyone else coming here and having this particular bug on Firefox... here is the raw link to the "Extended Search" , just exactly what you would see in the frame.
Hi, I haven't had enough time to thoroughly research this issue so I've provided a workaround specific to Windows computers (which seems to be the commonality in all failure cases). Before I release this publicly, however, I would greatly appreciate it if you could install the test version of this script by clicking here and letting me know if it works for you. If it does, I'll release the update to the master branch so other users will be able to auto-update. Thanks for your help in testing this fix.
