Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3932) Download page on site, links don't work when google analytics is blocked

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3932:
--------------------------------------

bq. The links on the download page don't work with left-click if google analytics are blocked
with a plugin (like Ghostery).

How do they not work? Can you open up the browser's console and see if there are javascript
errors? Or, you could user the debugger and step through the javascript to see where it hangs
(or at least where it leaves our javascript before hanging).

bq. Right clicking to download with "Save as..." does still work, but that won't work if scripts
are blocked entirely. When scripts are blocked, the mirror selection is not done automatically,
and the links take you to the mirror redirector page, and not the direct downloads. So, right-click
won't work in that case, and left-click is pretty important.

IMO, the first question to answer is whether or not we want the site to work w/o JS being
enabled. We might be able to put a "default" mirror in the HTML template for when JS isn't
enabled. When JS is enabled, we'd still choose a different mirror at random. It would pin
non-JS browsers to that specific mirror, but I can't imagine the number of users w/o JS is
very high..

fix is not immediately obvious to me.
