Why is it that jQuery and Javascript never seem to work when I use preview workspace?

Both Chrome and Firefox seem to be non-responsive when I preview workspace, this has happened in all modules so far when using JS and now jQuery. For example, in this lesson, clicking the preview just shows "Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's Father! Noooooooooooo!", and no button or anything is loaded at all.

Do you have javascript enabled in your browsers?

Check popup blockers, things like noscript, and your code. Treehouse seems to briefly reload the page as it switches to preview. If software on your computer is blocking this reload or the script itself that could cause your issue. Also, if you have an error in your code it may not work either.

If you are not running a local server it may be problematic to load outside sources, such as jQuery from a CDN. If and when that happens download a copy of the file and place into your js/ directory. Give that a shot.
