Greetings all,

I'm just curious if this site is using some special API for its "My Profile" page such that I can't seem to expand/collapse the categories to edit my preferences. I was just going to edit my email preferences but realized that I can't expand the Preferences section. I'm at work behind a proxy with a somewhat strict traffic policy (e.g. much of the social networking APIs are blocked, including FB, Google, etc. so any page that uses their advertising API looks horrible due to blank elements). JavaScripts are normally fine but it doesn't seem like the expand/collapse elements in the "My Profile" page here is using simple JavaScript (or is it?).

I've tried both Private Browsing session as well as normal session on Firefox 36.0.4 as well as Chrome 41.0.2272.118, Win7x64.

Thanks!

We use jQuery for expanding/contracting the sections. However, we use the CDN at Google. So if Google is blocked, that would explain it.

I'm assuming the preference you wanted to adjust is to not get the weekly book promo email and newsletter so I turned that off for you.
