Blank page loads?

I am getting a lot of problems with page loading at the moment - pages keep coming up blank and my browser says it's done but there's no content - page is blank apart from background stuff.

I have to refresh the page 2, 3, 4 times sometimes and then it finally loads - it seems to be getting worse - it was very occasional earlier today but now it's become quite bad.

Any ideas?

I think other users are noticing the same problem - not sure if it's everyone or just some of us.

The board is at TOTAL mess tonight, just as Scoobs says.
Just made a couple of very long post/PMs - lost in space because of this shite.

Get your stuff together folks.

Re: Blank page loads?

I'm having the same problem. When I checked my browser's activity window, it shows the the problem is coming from ad.doubleclick.

The results have shown."

Re: Blank page loads?

I'm not having the problem, but I use NoScript and I always block doubleclick... so that's probably the problem....

Count me in, having the same problem.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: Blank page loads?

This is terrible. How am I supposed to run games when it takes 20 minutes to load a page?

It's advertising very commonly used on the site. Doubleclick is a popular company, I see it on a lot of sites which is why I always have it on noscript block list. I realize not everyone can get NoScript but everyone using Firefox should have it, it will probably alleviate the problem. Hopefully the admins can fix this ASAP anyway.

edit: someone just installed NoScript for firefox and it definitely fixed the problem, she can access the board now.

That was a great advice.

Does this have any negative consequences on my pc- like spyware or so?

Glad to help, glad it worked.

not at all, in fact the opposite, it will prevent things from getting onto your computer and getting your information because it prevents the background scripts from running without you noticing. I find the web loads faster in general and it makes no greater difference anywhere than with MTF b/c of all the ads here Once you get used to the small pain of figuring out which scripts to allow to make websites work properly, it's a great asset to firefox IMO.

there's also another one called adblocker which I guess is helping MTF Work ok for people too.

edit: someone in GM posted this, maybe it will help the IE users

I generally keep all sites on restricted that will work that way, prevents ads and even viruses from jumping on. Some sites won't load at all on restricted, but most will, as long as they're not flash/shockwave-based.
