    I'm wondering if I'm the only one who sees a problem with the forum spy? I started noticing yesterday on my Macbook that it would stop refreshing. So to see new posts I would have to do a manual refresh. I'm at work now and the same thing is happening...I'm wondering if I accidentally changed a setting or if this is a problem for all.

    How long does it seem to work (updating the display dynamically) before it stops working?

    No problems for me on the latest Safari on the Mac
    Or on Chrome on a Win7 machine

    On my Mac at home, probably about 10-15 minutes. But on my PC at work, it's not updating at all.

    Yeah, for me on Google Chrome on Mac OS 10.6.6, it is not updating... I have to reinstall Chrome anyway (an issue with the history not showing up, only showing history from ~6 months ago), so I'll let you know if it fixes the issue with forum spy as well...

    I'm glad it's not just me. I'm on IE here at work, and home I'm on Safari. I just deleted the cookies, logged out and logged back in and still nothing. I'll try the same on my Mac when i get home.

    I dragged the Chrome.app to the trash, and went into User>Library>Application Support>Google and deleted the Chrome folder. I downloaded Chrome, and opened it. I had to set it up like new, but it fixed my issue with forum spy and the history... But I lost all of my bookmarks (good thing I took a screenshot of the bookmarks bar beforehand!)

    If it's still a problem when I get home, I will try to do that with Safari, although what a PITA! :D

    I can't do it with my work PC, so I'm hoping it will just work itself out. Weird though, it's happening on both computers.

    I had some issues with Forum Spy yesterday too. It didn't always show all posted posts. E.g. if I went and replied, it didn't appear in Forum Spy.

    Hadn't tested it today yet but will post if the issue reoccurs.

    That's because I delete your spammy posts as fast as you can make them :D

    I still have had no problems on Chrome/Win7 at work or Safari/OSX at home

    Could it be and extensions conflict of some kind?

    I bet I would have more infractions if my posts were considered as spam ;) I even checked couple of times and my post was indeed posted but it just didn't show up in Forum Spy

    I only have ClickToFlash installed so I don't think so. Could have been my ISP or other network related issue too. Anyway, so far everything is working

    Have the same problem too with Safari 5 on the latest Mac OS X version. I even did a reset of Safari and it didn't help.
    I only have ClickToFlash installed as Extension, Glims as plug in.
    I have 32 fora excluded though.

    I haven't noticed that but I'll be on the look out for it.

    The only extension I have installed is Click 2 Flash as well.

    It's being sporadic. It will update as usual for 5 minutes and then stop updating for a bit and then start updating again. Very, very odd.

    Yeah, I was having that issue as well yesterday, and even a bit today on FF 3.6 and 4.0b, so I think there's a bit of an issue with it.

    Had issues yesterday and today on the latest Firefox with no extensions and even on my iPhone 4 running the latest OS. Thought they were on to me at work!

    Does seem to be better now though.

    I was going to make a thread. Then again I do not desire to make new threads. My Forum Spy refresh issue appears to be limited to FireFox. It works properly in Chrome.

    Slight hijack:
    Anyone know why some thread posts are highlighted in yellow?

    Yeah, I just had the same thing happen. Nothing or very few posts at least and then I do a manual refresh and I missed half of them. This is on Chrome.

    Ohhh. I only have 1 on the list which is why I only see it once in a while. Thanks!

    Been lagging quite a lot for me lately. It just stops showing new posts. Considering that there are a fair amount of people experiencing this, it seems to be an issue in MR's end, not in users' browsers.

    EDIT: Now I have to refresh it manually to get any new posts at all. It just lags there, nothing happens.

    EDIT2: Okay, now it suddenly showed 5 minutes worth of posts and stopped again...
