after logging in. If I review posts before logging into BOL, I do not get any lock ups. But after logging into BOL from the 247 site I begin to have my Firefox browser locking up sometimes as early as clicking on the first post.
This is beginning to be very bothersome.
I use Chrome and have never had a problem. Never used Firefox for BOL
I only began having this issues within the past 3 or 4 weeks. Don't know what's going on. This is the only site for which I've had the lock up.
Just use chrome
Hey genius, some people don't want to give up their favorite browsers just because of a problem with one site. Come back when you have some useful advice.
It's probably a conflict with an extension or plug-in. Try opening Firefox in safe mode and see if the problem arises.
Nah, just use Chrome.
Have you cleared your temp Internet files?
Definitely. Just use Chrome.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
I'm going to go a little against the grain here, but use Chrome.
Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.
Yes, the Temp Internet files are empty.
In the 79 minutes since you started this thread you could have downloaded chrome, imported all of your favorites, fully customized it, thanked all of us, and then asked the staff to delete this thread. You're welcome.
I'll try that for a while and see what happens. But again it only locks up when I log into BOL part of 247. That is what is confusing.
You running ad block plus? If not try installing that on Firefox as it could be an ad that is trying to load that is causing it.
I had the same problem with Chrome. (and IE9)
I then went to Firefox with Adblock, and no more problems.
So use Chrome at your own risk. I still don't know what the problem is/was.
But I had the problem on multiple computers at multiple locations.
I was very frustrated.

Crome didn't help BOL still locks up. I think it is a site problem
I've used Chrome forever....have never had a lock up problem on BOL...used firefox at work...no problem either
I'll go even further against the grain: get a Mac.
Netscape is the only solution.
If clearing your cache, or signing out and then back in, drop our tech gurus at email@example.com a note.
We don't want you guys having problems either.

Or he could just use chrome
I just had to be in this thread. Maybe because I worked all day and night and I'm delirious but this is killin me lol
I'd go with Alloy then.
I had same problem. I went to this site http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner downloaded and ran it, and also cleaned up registry. Seemed to fix the problem for me. Maybe it will help u as well. RTR!
Not sure there is ever another solution besides this. Do they still make PC's???
