So… I need some help here with Tumblr from the community at large. Because I am clearly not going to get the help I need from actual Tumblr support.
The other day, I got that annoying pop-up about using missing e. Now I do not use it and never have, but I got it anyway. I do however use greasemonkey, which is a browser extension that has scripts which work for tumblr.
So at first I just clicked “OK” (checked the box first) but the pop-up would not go away. So I clicked it a bunch more, then clicked the “Uninstall” option. Nothing made it go away. I tried clicking back and re-entering and… nada. Pop-up just totally blocked me and no matter what I clicked, it would not go away.
So… today, I come on and no pop-up. But, when I go past about 10 posts or so on my dash, the “Loading more posts” thing will often (8 out of 10 times) just hang. It won’t actually load. And likewise, if I click to “like” a post it will not like it but scroll up my dash randomly.
If I turn off greasemonkey (and my scripts) then Tumblr will work properly.
But greasemonkey is not missing e. So why would it trigger that pop-up? And further more, why would the script extension program like greasemonkey spontaneously begin causing glitches for the first time only in the immediate wake of my clicking the “Continue Using Missing E” option of that pop-up? It seems rather damn suspicious, if you ask me.
While I don’t using missing e, I know Tumblr hates it with a passion. Anyone on Tumblr knows as much, because they’ve done everything they can to make people stop using it.
So to folks using either missing e or greasemonkey… is anyone else suddenly having problems?
Does anyone else find it curious and suspicious that I had no errors at all until after I told Tumblr I would keep using missing e (even though I am not using such)?
It’s enough to make me paranoid and think that Tumblr has actually programmed ‘glitches’ to effect anyone who says they’ll use missing e just to spite them and make them think it’s the problem.
