Description Helder 2012-02-19 16:12:09 UTC
After was updated to MW 1.19 I noticed my global scripts were not being loaded sometimes.

I replaced the content of [[mw:Project:Sandbox]] by the code
window.console.log( 'ok' );

and added
mw.loader.load( '//' );

to [[mw:Special:MyPage/common.js]]. When I opened [[mw:Special:Random]] a few times, I was expecting to always get the "ok" message in the error console, but this only happened some times. When it didn't, a SHIFT+Reload solved the problem for that page, but then if a opened another random page the problem is back again.

I've reproduced this on Google Chrome 17.0.963.56 and Firefox 10.0.2.
Comment 1 Helder 2012-02-19 17:42:09 UTC
I noticed the same behavior when loading
on metawiki but it do not happens if I use either
Comment 2 Michael M. 2012-02-22 09:01:52 UTC
Can you check whether there are warnings in the web console saying "A call to document.write() from an asynchronously-loaded external script was ignored."? If so then this bug and bug 34542 are duplicates and the document.write()-call done by mw.loader.load is to blame for this bug.
Comment 3 Helder 2012-02-22 13:10:56 UTC
I'm not able to reproduce this anymore. Closing for now.
Comment 4 Mark A. Hershberger 2012-02-22 17:02:49 UTC
Agreed.  Can't reproduce.
