I'm having a terrible time posting messages here. I hit the Submit button and then the page seems to get "stuck" and never really completes the task (I don't see the "Go here to see your message" screen).

Are we having this slowdown because of the increased traffic on the board? Is the bandwidth sufficient to handle the amount of people on here?

It must be a Mozilla Firefox problem because I'm now using IE (yuck) and it seems to be working fine. Confused

Firefox sucks from time to time.

I belive this problem has allready been mentionned in another topic sometime ago if I'm not mistaken. This can be solved with a patch that needs to installed.

If the issue appears to be with Firefox, it could be a couple of problems:

1) It may be a bug in either Firefox or an extension that you have installed. Make sure that Firefox and all installed extensions are up to date.

2) Some extensions are poorly written. You could have one installed that is causing the issue. Try disabling all of them and reactivating them one at a time to see if the issue arises. Also make sure they are up to date.

3) Firefox is somewhat infamous for its memory leaks (it uses system memory and fails to free it when it does it need it anymore) as are some extensions. Try the above trouble-shooting techniques to weed out bad extensions. Failing that, closing Firefox and restarting will usually help.

4) Firefox does DNS caching. When you type in www.rebellegion.org, your computer is actually looking the websites IP address (which is a long number) and using that. Firefox will cache the IP address and sometimes that changes. You can restart the browser or you can go to about:config and change etwork.dnsCacheExpiration to 0.

You can use an alternative browser. I am on Linux and KDE, so I primarily use Konqueror. On Linux you have virtually unlimited web browser options, although most of them are based off the Mozilla project so they may have the same issues as Firefox.
On Windows of course you have IE and various offshoots of Mozilla, including Netscape Navigator 8.
On Mac you have Safari which is based on Konqueror's KHTML rendering engine.
There is also Opera, which is free and available on Linux, Mac, and Windows and is fairy nice and light-weight.
