    Hi-

    Every once in a while (like right now) I can load the macrumors forums but threads themselves will not load in Firefox 3.0.8. Threads *do* load in Safari 3.2.1. I've tried deleting cookies and turning off all Ad blocking plugins and any script blocking plugins... no dice. This started last night around midnight GMT.

    Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

    Well, I restarted Firefox and the problem didn't go away. Restarted my machine and now it works fine. Very strange.

    Probably reset your DHCP settings, likely the IPv6 was stalling out DNS under Firefox.

    If it keeps happening you might look at the network.dns.disableIPv6 flag in Firefox.
