Issue writing user reviews

I tried to post a positive review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, especially since only negative (repetitive) reviews have been posted, but I get this message when attempting to do so:

"Blocked by Content Security Policy

This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.

Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it."

So now only extremely negative reviews appear. How do I resolve this problem?

Sorry about this. Please see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/general-information/why-is-imdb-displaying-differently-on-my-brow... -- in particular do you have "https everywhere" or an equivalent enabled?

Hello, I am also experiencing this problem. It is not just for Star Wars. Firefox is not allowing me to write reviews for any films, something that I have previously been able to do. I have disabled adblocker on IMDB and this has not fixed the problem.

Do you have another browser which you can try on the same system so we can isolate this to possibly just Firefox?

I had this problem w/ Firefox.  I could not figure out which security setting to toggle to correct the issue, but there is a work-around.  Just right-click on "Add a Review" and select "Open Link in a New Private Window".  It should open up a new window and work fine.  Hope this helps.

Thanks Ben.  In the meantime we have opened a ticket with the appropriate team to see if we can workaround this Firefox issue or at least better detect and message the solution.

I do not like Edge or Internet explorer, that is why I use Firefox. Is there a way to fix this problem because I have looked and cannot seem to resolve this?

Since IMDB updated the review page, I have been trying to post, edit, and delete a review on many different titles and a black rectangle comes up on the right part of the screen but nothing shows. I can't edit, post, or delete a review for a title. Can you please help me with this or fix this?

I have tried do a review on my phone but the same thing happens.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why suddenly can't I post reviews of films?.Over the last couple days when I go to write a review of a movie I am unable to. I just get a black window that comes up on the right side of my screen with nowhere to type. Very bizarre as I've been writing reviews for years with no problem. How do I fix this? I tried for several different films with the same result, so it is no film specific.

I have reviewed many films for IMDb, but today was unable to do so and received this message: "Blocked by Content Security Policy

Can't add a user review on Chrome, Windows 10.  Instead of a form for a review, I get a black space I can't write in.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled New "review" code doesn't work on chrome.

The new code for submitting a film review (which was completely unnecessary) doesn't work on chrome. The screen splits, and all you get on the right is a black screen. I had to go to firefox and log in to review a film. I realize that IMDB is infamous for implementing changes that add zero value and are unwanted by users, but come on. Are you really trying to stop all user contribution? The review code wasn't broken. This "new" version is not an improvement, even if it was working properly on all platforms. And it isn't.

It's bad enough that they killed the film/show specific message boards (which was the number one most valuable feature of IMDB - I don't care about the generic discussion board they had, but the film-specific discussions was INVALUABLE), but now they're trying to stop users from even reviewing films (or if not actively "stop," they are obviously not testing very well). I think IMDB doesn't want user contribution or involvement at all.

Can somebody who cares about the quality and usefulness of this site please be given the job of running it?

Thank you for your feedback and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.  Unfortunately, this has been a really hard issue to fix since we are unable to reproduce.  Additionally, we are seeing a significantly higher number of submitted reviews since release, so this issue appears to be a highly localized problem. We believe it is most likely related to individual security settings and/or interactions with ad blockers.  We recently added some fall back logic triggering a new page if we detect potential issues with the in-line form.   Unfortunately, the issue that causes the “black screen” could also limit our ability to log issues if they occur.  If you are still experiencing this issue, please let us know.

If you are, please provide your system/browser combination so we can help track the issue.  Also, to help us test, please go to an image for any movie/TV show and press the “Edit Tags” button.  Do you also see the “black screen”?  Finally, on the Parents Guide page, if you select the "+ add to guide" option does the same thing occur? We have similar technology for these pages, but have never received feedback of any issues.

I appreciate your effort as we attempt to track down the problem.

Thanks
Nic

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can't add a review.

The last couple days I have tried to enter reviews. I get a black popup on the right hand of the page. The popup closes, but there's nothing on it. I inspected the underlying element and it's indeed empty.  No black-on-black text or anything. Just an empty frame. Any ideas?

Unfortunately if adblock has already incorrectly blocked the javascript required to display the form, closing it will not be enough, sorry.  What happens if you open an incognito window and try again?

We have investigated this issue and all causes appear to be related to over-aggressive ad blockers or older unsupported browsers.

When I click on the link to add a review of a movie I am getting the above error from Firefox in the pop-up window. Pop up blocker is disabled. Here is the rest of the message This page has a content security policy that prevents it from being loaded in this way.

"Firefox prevented this page from loading in this way because the page has a content security policy that disallows it."
I was able to contribute about a week ago not sure what has changed.

If you clear all IMDb cookies and then login again, the problem should disappear.  If you do not know how to do this, instead please follow the steps outlined on https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/general-information/why-is-imdb-displaying-differently-on-my-brow... and let us know what happens.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Giving review with Chrome OSX.

When users want to give a review using chrome on OSX it gets stuck. When a user wants to  input a iframe popsup to the right of the screen. However with OSX using chrome nothing happens then, just a black backgruond. I tried the same address using safari and all was fine.

So perhaps you should check that code. I dont even understand why such a weird review method is used with floating windows etc etc
