Suddenly today, Firefox is blocking the comments section at the end of Fox News website articles. I really resent Firefox censoring content of this site or any site. I will spread this information widely unless it is repaired immediately. F.Y.I. all works fine on Safari so it is just Firefox.

That would be the work of your adblocker or A/V doing the blocking.

No it wouldn't be the result of my ad blocker or A/V. It is the result of Firefox censoring my content. I changed nothing since yesterday. Yesterday the comments were showing just fine. Today, they show up for a second and then disappear. Don't try to scam me with your phony reply.

well, there was no firefox update today or yesterday either. please take a look into your addons as they might receive automatic filter-list updates...

Articles on foxnews.com load comments from Facebook. Make sure you aren't using any features that block embedded Facebook content, such as Tracking Protection. When Tracking Protection is blocking content, a "shield" icon appears at the left end of the address bar. Click the shield to drop a panel so you an make an exception.

Firefox does not censor any comments on Fox News - if your comments are "censored" it would be by Fox News :

If the above doesn't apply to your situation, and even though this only just started happening : If you use extensions that can block (wanted) content, like Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flash Block, Ghostery, would you please disable it/them and see if that will make a difference  ?
