AT least in some of your stories (ex: https://www.thefpsreview.com/2019/06/30/tim-sweeney-blames-valve-for-shenmue-3-backers-not-getting-steam-keys/ https://www.thefpsreview.com/2019/06/30/amazon-ceo-jeff-bezos-to-pay-out-38-billion-in-divorce-settlement/ )

You guys do quotes of a source or individuals in the style of pull quotes. They are in large part black text on the sites's near black background. This works like dookie and you should stop that. Either box them in their own style that tolerates black text, or make the text not black.

Wow I didn't even realize there was text there. I thought it was just a failed image load.

What browser are you on @raz-0 ? I don't see anything wonky when looking at it via Chrome and Edge here....

The common theme for both of those is Twitter being pulled in the middle. Are you using an ad blocker or some sort of no-script plugin? Below is what I see for the Bezos article.

Chrome Win10, I am running ScriptSafe and it's blocking a lot of external stuff

Opera, but from work with lots of scripts and tracking stuff disabled. Tested it in my unprotected browser, and it looks right.

My setup doesn't seem to kill twitter inserts on other sites, but it does here.

Seems to be associated with the scripts for the twitter button used to track your browsing.

We don't have specific Twitter tracking scripts. For Twitter we are using their scripts (see code below), which more likely contains their tracking. We are using a fairly vanilla WordPress install - tracking by us is done by Google Analytics and Jetpack. Mostly interested in overall page views and traffic sources - this data will be needed in the future to help with pricing direct advertising. Hopefully you're at least allowing the display ads to show - by design they should not make for a poor user experience around here.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet tw-align-center"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">MacKenzie is going to be amazing and thoughtful and effective at philanthropy, and I’m proud of her. Her letter is so beautiful. Go get ‘em MacKenzie. <a href="https://t.co/S2gLLBQyRQ">https://t.co/S2gLLBQyRQ</a></p>— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) <a href=" ">May 28, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Beyond this, I'm not sure how much more I can help - our pages display as intended on the major stock browsers.
