Hi Folks

I cannot open this site www.boards.ie in Firefox, at east 90% of the time. The top of the title page appears but nothing else, and it just hangs there indefinitely trying to load.
The other 10% of the time it will open but as soon as I click on any link or content it hangs again.

It opens perfectly in IE7 and on a friends computer it opens in Firefox. I also wrote to the board (the site) and replies said no one had a problem in Firefox! Im using XP pro. Any ideas?

Hello h,

Try getting to the site using Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode). You can access this by using the programs menu, under "Mozilla Firefox".

Also, do you have any popup blocking software? What other security software do you have installed?

Regards,

Ax

Hi

No the safe mode isnt working so far. The thing is I could come back in about 45 mins and it will have loaded. But it will take as long again to go any further.

I have avast, adaware, comodo firewall, and superantispyware.

It was accasionally slow in the past and sometimes wouldnt load, but no quite as bad as this.

I notice an upgrade downloaded 2.0.0.10 Wonder if this will make a difference when I restart.

Or maybe I will uninstall and reinstall Firefox...

h,

It might not be a bad idea to uninstall Firefox and then reinstall, as it works fine for you in IE.

Keep me posted.
