 I just realized twitter doesn't load properly when the security slider is
 set to "high". I was trying to figure out what triggers this but I also
 realized there's no apparent way to find out what things were blocked by
 the security slider. Addons like NoScript, Privacy Badger or any ad
 blocker basically have this option where they show you what elements were
 blocked so you could investigate if there's a problem and manually
 whitelist them, but I find out it's not as easy with the security slider.

 Attached is a screenshot of how it looks.

 The workaround is to lower the security to medium.
