Dear Wikipedians ,

There seems to be important  accessibility issue with Marathi Wikipedia and 
Marathi Wiktionary , Realy not aware how limited or widespread problem is 
.Initially thought the problem is limited to me only but there is one more 
complaint received. 

I am facing  problem since Yesterday evening , Problem is quite strange  
irrespective of the browser ( and my all browsers are relatively updated) we 
just see Marathi Wikipedia/Wiktionary page just for a second and then it 
completely disappears only meta central notice remains visible "Wikipedia is 
sustained by people like you. Please donate today." We can see complete (HTML) 
source for the page from browser but cant see the the page.  

I am using Windows7 licensed copy with Windows Security essential Firewall 
which is well updated. Realy dont know if problem began since virus definitions 
of the firewall got updated but certainly I am not the only person to face the 
problem, atleast one more complaint has been received, we are not likely to get 
many complaints on mr-wiki since if people can not access at all then how would 
and where would they complain,

I could bypass the problem by deactivating Java from my browser,As a precaution 
we deactivated Marathi Transliteration feature from Marathi wikipedia but still 
problem is there. 

Activity of expert level users is as usual, bot activity level is also as usual 
but anonymous editing seems to have been ceased all the way 

I searched Meta but really dont know where to report this problem.

Any help please ?

Thanks and Warm regards

-Mahitgar fro Marathi WIkipedia
