It does not happen all the time but more often than not.
could it be browser problem?
have not had it happen in opera yet but it is in Firefox.
seems to be limited to this install.

Thanks for the link. It worked for me first time using IE but I got a part page in both Firefox and Chromium (bit like Chrome). I don't believe it is a speed issue but something in the webpage coding. I never see anything at all similar on other websites despite browsing quite a lot with Firefox.

I think we can now be about certain that it is some sort of webpage incompatibility - something that has either not kept up with later versions of Firefox, Chromium, and maybe others (as per #8) or maybe even router firewalls. There might be a clue in the fact that next time I went there in Firefox and Chromium it was fine but played up again after I restarted the computer.

Maybe someone on our Web Development forum can spot what it is that is hanging it up if you give them the same link.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have found that disabling Flash Player in Firefox makes for a better visit.

FF refresh no joy.
it has only started happening recently.
it may be coincidental but it was around the same time I updated my router with openwrt firmware.

I've optimised the picture for web with photoshop.
tried the refresh,also tried deleting the mozilla folder which is pretty much like refresh.

I've seen something similar back in the day when pics would draw in stages.

Do web pages take a long time to fill the page? If so that is usually a connection issue.

Have you tried to see how IE behaves?

not checked IE.
this website is mine on my LAN but connected to over WAN.
pages load quickly.
it's not a major issue to be sure just annoying and I like to 'solve' things :)

Err, yes. What I meant was to try IE too in case the outcome proves something.

So far no problems with IE.

There is music that plays with IE but not with FF or Opera.
It was designed to play music but it seems only IE is playing that music?

If this web page of yours works well with IE but not as well with other browsers then you need to check these browsers with other web pages out there. If pages from major companies work evenly across the board then there is nothing wrong with your browser but that your web page is not yet universally compatible and it still needs work. The professionals who work on most web pages have a lot of experience doing this and will test each page with all known browsers for problems (at least the big three or four) before publishing them. This is what I think you need to do, continue testing and find out ways to make it more compatible.

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

www.stimulatedgaming.com

It's my site and my domain,run from my other pc on my LAN using wamp.
I made it just for me and a few friends.
Site has been up and running for a good few years with no changes whatsoever.
this anomaly has only just recently started happening and co-incides with my new router WRT1900AC running openwrt (McWRT).

So far it only happens in FF but I'm trying a lot more with opera as 1st port of call.

For sure it's not a major issue but I don't like anomalies hehe
