Default Problem "timing out?"

Hi Jim et Al.,

Using Firefox 3.5.7, not logged in, with javascript disabled (via NoScript).

For the last several days I've noticed an intermittent problem with the forums. No problems with any other sites.

I'll be reading posts for a while and then I can no longer call up any new pages on the forum. Firefox indicates that a new page request is "loading," and that it's waiting for the web site to respond - which it never does.

If I then go to another web site and come right back, the forum pages load fine for a while, and then the problem reappears.

Tonight this happened twice, after about 5-minutes each time.

It seems that my connection is getting dropped somewhere. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this?

Again, I'm only experiencing this problem on this forum site, and it's intermittent.

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks, Hards80. Well, it also happens when I'm logged it. Heh - I couldn't log out after I posted and then, when I logged back in to respond to you, I lost connectivity again.

Thanks for the heads up guys.

I'll keep and eye out for this today, and see if I can recreate the issue.

Ok, this just happened to me too. Took a few minutes just sitting there, with loading in the task bar. Opening a new tab and trying to connect to the forums showed the same result.

I'm pinging our IT department now, so hopefully we can have this resolved sometime today.

Thanks, billy!

I did some very inconclusive testing this morning.

The only change on my end that I'm aware of since I started seeing this problem is a NoScript update (maybe two updates - I don't remember). I disabled NoScript (and javascript in Firefox) and still experienced the problem.

Since I use Windows XP, I concurrently ran Internet Explorer 7.x for a while along with Firefox. I did not log in. When Firefox experienced the problem, IE was still working fine, and never failed. This happened a couple of times. This wasn't a "controlled" test, but something seems strange!

Mike,

I too am running in FireFox, however I use Ubuntu (linux) as my operating system. I'm going to see if I can replicate this issue using Google's Chrome browser.

As soon as I have more info, I'll be sure to fill you guys in.

FWIW, it seems to be running fine right now.

Billy:

I was running Firefox 3.5.7 in OpenSUSE 11.2 earlier and noticed the same thing. I've got Firefox 3.5.2 running right now in a fresh install of SimplyMEPIS 8.0.12 (not the latest version) without any updates yet and also noticed an intermittent performance problem with it earlier, too (so it's not unique to Firefox 3.5.7 and the browser probably isn't the issue)

But, it seems to be fine right now.

Thanks for the added input Jim.

I've got an email out to the powers that be, so we'll see what they come up with.
