    Ever since the forum upgrade back in February of this year, some browsers hang on this site. It depends on the browser and your location. Browsers such as chrome, opera 12 and now FF15. I discovered a way to stop this in chrome pref by going to advance setting and disable "Predict network actions to improve page load performance" this stopped chrome from hanging, but how to I stop FF15 from doing so? Is their a way in about:config?

    1. Type about:config in the address bar and press ENTER.

    2. Locate and double-click the entry for network.prefetch-next

    3. Set it to false to disable this feature. Double-clicking on the setting will change it.

    LOL! Came right back and it took several min for it to clear up so i could use Safari. Sad. I tried to get arn to solve this but I'm guessing that he's unwilling to to so.
