Hubspot form is blank on wordpress when privacy badger enabled
Apr 16, 2018 10:50 AM
We're testing our new hubspot generated contact form on our website here https://thesatorilab.com/contact-us/?btn=contact-header
The form works on some browsers but is blank on Vilvaldi using privacy badger extension. We are sure it is privacy badger because we have tested with the extension switched off and the form loads correctly.
This article suggests that the form should fall back to showing an error with a link to continue on another page if it encounters a privacy blocker, we dont see that though.
Here is what it should look like:
And here is what we see from Vivaldi broswer with privacy badger extension on
It looks like something similar was logged as a bug on the privacy badger github last year https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadger/issues/1363 but was then resolved in an update to privacy badger itself.
Also Privacy Badger detects forms.hubspot.com and track.hubspot.com as potential trackers and blocks both domains. If I tell Privacy Badger to permit forms. but make no changes to track. the form appears successfully and the lead flow pop-up also does. So it is the forms.hubspot.com domain causing the problem.
