Some of my users are either using script blocker extensions in their browsers, or they are not able to use the Reply, Edit and Quote functions properly. I'm currently instructing them with basic workarounds, which are fine for replying and quoting, but editing requires them to ask me to make the updates for them. I would prefer not to do this and besides, I'd also prefer that the forum work as designed for them, or at least have some sort of fallback.

Do you have any suggestions on how to help them with this, or is there a way to implement some fallback functions for cases like this?

Update: Some folks are removing their script blockers and all is well. Still some can't use the buttons and don't see the editor menu. This tells me that something is blocking the scripts on their end. But I don't know where or what to tell them to look at to fix it.

I also wondered if maybe it has something to do with CloudFlare speed enhancements, but everything seems to be working for the vast majority of users.

Update: So far, it seems that the users having trouble are outside the United States... two are in Australia and one is in Mexico. Now I'm wondering if that has something to do with it.

At the moment, it seems that all ios users face this issue and have for a while. There is apparently a fix coming.

I think this is very hard to debug. All ad providers should have such feature, this should come from Ad code. We don't have an experience in detecting Ad Blocker programs yet. I'll ask our team to work around this for sure.
