Solved This OP has posed a problem...

Specs: Windows 7 - 64Bit, 3.6 GHz / 8173 MB
I happened on this post: http://www.computing.net/answers/th...
and I have found of late that this occurs frequently on my own setup however it never occurs on other sites. I laid the blame at a bloated Firefox and changing down to an earlier version solved most of the problem but Computing net remains slow with lots of timeouts.

Is this a problem with other members?

mikelinus,

Thank you for that! Of course, if, as a registered user, a person knows there is no chance he'll ever click on them, it is nice to give the option to turn it off. That's why I decided to do it.

Thanks!
Justin

Hey Ewen,

I responded on the other thread. I may make it so members can block almost all ads from showing up. For now, they can only block some. Either way, that setting should help if its on. Let me know!

My IE 10 has been working beautifully with CN. I've had no problems and thanks to disabling ad's as per Justin's advice (I actually did that a while back) I don't see any popup ads anymore.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

I have had no issues on my personal xp, android, and i devices, however its possible if you are looking from a monitored or workplace connection that thier firewall or simler setup is limiting or blocking ads.

mikelinus,

That could be it... However, this did give me the inspiration I needed to finally block almost all ads for logged in users (if they wanted it done). So, overall, a big plus I think :)

Thank you Justin, I never had ads blocked in "Settings" I relied in part on "Adblock". I have changed that setting today and I'll keep you posted.

Regards.


EDIT: (+half an hour later) The change I made in settings was spot on. Pages load fast just like they used to.

I should point out that the adds have not caused that much of a problem for me, just an occasional need to reload. I figure leaving the adds on and occasionally looking at a link makes sure that the site continues. Thanks for the fix though Justin
