Solved Edge reporting problem with page loading

May 23, 2019 at 11:21:33
Specs: several
When I use Edge to try to go to https://www.physicsforums.com/

I have recently been getting this error message page:

---------------------------------------------

This page is having a problem loading

We tried to load this page for you a few times, but there is
still a problem with this site. We know you have better things
to do than to watch this page reload over and over again so try
coming back to this page later.

---------------------------------------------

A few days ago I was able to get in, but not since then.

I just tried two website up/down testers:

https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com...

got no result at all. I waited a long time.


https://down.com/

says: It's you! Looks like http://physicsforums.com is online.


Any ideas? Physics Forums is as safe as Computing.net.
I've used it for years.

I find that the biggest issue I have with Edge is that it tries to keep everything that you had last time to 'speed browsing'. The problem with this method is that errors and problems come back as well. The first thing I do is to close the browser (Edge) in all instances (it will not work if you keep one page open and close only other(s)) and reopen it. If that does not work I do these in order:
Go to Settings, Advanced Settings and 'Choose What to Clear', select all except Passwords and OK it.
Close Browser.
Click on the search area and type 'My PC' or 'My Computer' and select My PC
Right click on your C drive and select Properties.
Select 'Disk Clean Up'
Place checks on all or nearly all and OK, then OK (this can take a while)
When finished, Start>Shut Down>Restart (Important to use Restart, not turning off and starting because this clears many more things).

At home I prefer Firefox.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Simple fix - stop using Edge. Use Chrome or one of the Chromium based browsers instead.

"Edge has fallen massively behind Chrome in terms of market share, and it’s getting to the point where Chrome is the new IE6. Developers are optimizing for Chrome, and Google has also been creating Chrome-only web services because it’s often the first to adopt emerging web technologies. Microsoft has struggled to keep its Edge rendering engine in stride with Chromium."
