I just got my Galaxy Nexus and was browsing Stack Exchange (in both mobile and full theme) and got the following warning. As a result things like voting, the dropdown and such don't work. I never had this problem on Gingerbread, so I think it has something to do with Ice Cream Sandwich.

So I'd like to know which settings do I have to tweak so the Javascript gets loaded anyway?

It does seem to load on Dolphin, so it seems limited to the stock browser.

FYI: This does not reproduce in the emulator's stock browse (running ICS) – Bryan Denny Dec 12 '11 at 22:29
Maybe Stack Exchange is doing some weird stuff based on the client string and doesn't recognize the one from ICS? – Al E. Dec 12 '11 at 23:45
That message means that jQuery fails to to load from – balpha Dec 13 '11 at 9:09
Can anyone else reproduce this on another Galaxy Nexus? – Bryan Denny Dec 13 '11 at 14:15
Does this happen on both wifi and mobile networks? – Mokubai Dec 13 '11 at 23:46

Have you enabled JavaScript in Settings -> Advanced -> Enable JavaScript? The site works normally for me on ICS stock browser on my Galaxy S.

Yup its enabled, toggling it on or off doesn't really make a difference either – Ivo Flipse Dec 12 '11 at 11:37

It turns out my probably was solved by something as simple as clearing my cache.

Which makes me feel pretty stupid, because I should have done that before even bothering to ask. I never suspected this could happen straight out of the box, guess I was wrong.
