Disabling JavaScript side effects

by on September 1, 2009

Q: How come when I attempt to login to eBay nothing happens, the page just sits there like it is hung?

A: Many websites, like eBay, actually use JavaScript to login to the site. So you should make sure that you have JavaScript enabled in your web brower. This will fix the problem 90% of the time. Many websites use JavaScript for other things besides just logging in so disabling JavaScript will actually cause pages and sites to work different than they were designed to work.

We can all understand why people would want to turn off JavaScript but just keep in mind if you do that you might run into issues like this. So when you run into an issue like this the first thing you should try is to turn JavaScript back on.
