Weird. I am using Firefox with Fasterfox, no Google software. Never had this. Perhaps cleaning the cache & cookies would help? :)

Merry Christmas.

I'm using the latest Firefox on both Vista and XP, and have never had this problem. Seems to suggest it is a problem on the user's side, not Firefox's or G2G's...

Also, the problem exists running Firefox 2.0.0.11 on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy). n Doesn't like me trying to go to the next page, whichever it is (forward, back, it don't care).

SOLUTION


I have not found how to stop it happening in the first place, unfortunately. But every time it happens, press CTRL + F5 on your keyboard to do a "hard refresh" of the page. It will show the page for you. :)

Cheers

What, close my browser, run ATF, then login again to try the page instead of just pressing CTRL + F5?

I do use ATF cleaner, so no it doesn't fix it permanently, anyway. :)

In firefox, for a refresh that clears the browser cache is CTRL+Shift+R. Just an extra pointer.
