Recently I've noticed that quick replies tend to time out the first time. Hitting ESC while it loads and resubmitting or waiting till it times out and then just reloading and allowing the browser to resend the POSTed data will get me an instant post.
The posts do not appear twice, so I guess the scripts have not been invoked yet. No problems in browsing.

I'm using Firefox 3.6.16 on XP SP3 but I cannot really say wether it started with some update.
Is anyone else experiencing similar things? Any hints?

It's not really a problem, but it seems to happen all the time now, so I thought I'd ask.

Do you have any add-ons activated? This has created problems for me before.

Everything seems fine from my end.

WebmasterWorld appeared to be down for several hours this evening, at least as viewed from the UK.

From France the time out problem is the same tonight ( posted at 12.05 hrs Paris time April 8 )..the icons are loading more slowly and or "hanging" ..been going on for the last hour or so ..and appear to be holding up the page loads..posting then "floods"

It may have been "off" earlier as it was for the UK ..but was OK at 22.00 hrs April 7 my time.

No add ons ..Opera 10.6 on linux Mint

eelixduppy: I have lots of addons installed, but WebmasterWorld is the only page I have noticed this up till now. I'll disable some plugins when I post and see wether one of those that are disabled was responsible.

We have had sporadic reports of similar since moving to the new host in December. I have been unable to recreate the issue at all. I do believe it exists. It seems specifically that the issue is with FireFox.
