Is there an alternate way to make a script run besides choosing the button?

 

There are a few sites where buttons run by scripts will not go...particularly the add-to-cart button on a few, but not all, shopping sites.  I think it has something to do with the network because if I use the same machine, same site, at my parents, it works fine.  Regardless, is there some alternate way of making it run other than choosing the button?

 

Thanks.

I don't know of any.

 

The first thing I'd be examining is what add-ons/extensions you have running on your own web browser that you're using where it doesn't work at home that are not in place on your parents' web browser.   I use a lot of privacy/security related add-ons and they can cause just this sort of problem.  Sometimes you need to whitelist a site or temporarily disable one or more of them to "unstick" a button that won't respond.

 

That, or do as I do and keep one "naked browser" that I can use for occasions just such as this where I'm really more concerned with getting an order in and completed than anything else.  In my case that browser is MS-Edge, which I very seldom touch otherwise.

"if I use the same machine"--it is still my same web browser...a laptop I bring with me.

Sorry, missed that detail, which is crucial, somehow.

 

You might want to contact your ISP and/or check out what your hardware firewall settings are in your router.  Behaviors such as this are really mysterious.

It's a direct connection, no router.

You've got to have either a modem or a router or a switch.  These days I presume a router, but if it's a modem with a single ethernet port and a wired connection I'd still see if your ISP might be able to help you figure out what's happening (and, believe me, I know that this can be like pulling teeth - I've been there).  Since this sounds like it's happening at home, I'm not presuming a switch.

 

It makes no sense (as you've already said) that the same button on the same website on the same computer using the same web browser works when you're activating it using one internet connection and does not when you're using another.   And I agree that, given the number of "sames" the only different is something between your computer and the website.
