Under Actor, the Show all # episodes seems to have stopped working. It just sits there and spins. I've check other actors and computers. It seems to be consistent, and the drop down buttons on the series home page (by each actor) has the same problem. Until a few days ago, it would always come right back.

To be precise, you're referring to the cast list of a series, correct?
For instance, at
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108778/fullcredits
when I click the down-arrow-icon for showing all episodes of any actor, the page jumps to the top, and does nothing to the actor's listing, even on actors who have only a few episodes.

I saw the spinning behavior earlier this week, and reported it as a side remark to another thread. Better to have it alone here. Since the IMDb rep didn't mention my post, I'm not sure what she reported. But even on the title referenced there, I get the jump to top symptom now.

If you're still seeing the spinning behavior, please report the specific URL, and also what browser/platform you're on. (I'm using Chrome 78 on Windows 10).

I definitely do NOT get a list of episodes on the Title page when I click the  arrow to display them.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050051/#

Nor on the cast/crew page.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050051/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ql_1#

I'm also not getting them on the name page now (I did earlier in the week on the other thread). I just get a jump to the top of page.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000994/#

Pretty clear from the links (captured with right-click, copy link) why I'm getting the non-results. "#" isn't much of a destination.

I am seeing the same problem with jumping to the top of the page on the expand episodes links both title and name pages.

@bderoes - the # destination is probably why there is a jump to the top as it is a fragment identifier within the current page but with no name. The effect is supposed to be performed by a javascript function toggleSeeMoreEpisodes but if that fails it looks as if it falls back to treating the blank fragment as top of page.

If you have the right tools in your browser (I am using Safari on an iMac) you can see what is probably the problem. Here is an example:

TypeError: Attempted to assign to readonly property.
add — common-858210017._CB450536990_.js:100:779
(anonymous function) — common-858210017._CB450536990_.js:89:4365
each — common-858210017._CB450536990_.js:89:15784
toggleSeeMoreEpisodes — title-1330523340._CB449555255_.js:186:133
onclick — tt0411027:4444

Selected Element
<a class="toggle-episodes" data-n="161" href="#" onclick="toggleSeeMoreEpisodes(this,'nm3609965','tt0411027','self','tt_cl_i21',0,0,'#episodes-tt0411027-nm3609965-self', toggleSpan); return false;">...</a>

The behaviour has changed but it is still broken. Instead of a spinning circle now, it just moves you to the top of the page.

Example: Find an actor who appeared in multiple episodes of the same TV Show, such as Margarita Cordova:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0179654/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

Try to click on one of the "Show all episodes" links, such as the one under Santa Barbara which says:
Show all 229 episodes
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0179654/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1#

Clearly that second links is not what we want.

This should expand the list of episodes. Instead it jumps to the top of the page, the date never loads.
This issue occurs in Chrome, Firexox, Internet Explorer and Edge.

I'm showing the feature working also, on all 3 problem locations:
the title page
the full credits page
the name page.

I used the title originally reported:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083481/

Interesting that the # is indeed the link that makes this work.
