View Full Version : Site problem!

Sep 24, 2004, 10:53 AM
Is anyone else seeing this, or is it just me?

Recently (last week or so), I've started having problems with the MacRumors site in that the ad will load, and the pageload will stop. It will take 2-4 reloads of the page before I can see anything below the adspace.

Now, some more sinister than I would think it was a cheap way to increase ad hit counts, but I'm sure it's just an html coding error that I wanted to bring to your attention and see if anyone else was having the same problem.

I have not had this problem on my Mac at work, at home, or on my laptop.

The same thing happens to me occasionally. This only seems to happen on my work PC and when using Firefox.

It doesn't seem to happen when using IE on my PC (granted it has been a long time since I used IE for any browsing, Mac or PC) or when using Safari or Firefox on my Mac. :confused:

Same here, Firefox on my PC at work keeps having this problem. Not sure if it's MR or Firefox though.

Gah... I thought it was me. It happens to me at work (Windows 2000 / Mozilla 1.7.3) and at home (OS X / Safari).

Me too. Although it seems to have recently cleared up.

Like some others: Safari 1.2.2 on OS 10.3.4

Thought it was a Safari thing, cleared my cache...

never used to happen w/ firefox until i got 1.0 but now it does. in netscape 7.2(my favorite browser behind hypersalamander as it's calling itself now due to the firesomething extension and netscape 4.7 which sadly renders macrumors completely wrong, without java or tables or anything even though i have all plugins...
