EDIT: Things are fixed and under control now. I'll leave the original post as-is, though, as a testament to how it's not as if I'm always exactly cool and collected!
This is related to recent threads where members have reported the various problems they have while navigating around the Northern Sound pages.
Just in the last day, I suddenly got the dreaded loooong page load thing happening, this time having to wait each time for "static facebook" to load.
I looked online for help, and found some info about changing things in my tabs. And it's made this particular page load problem cease, BUT now I'm in NIGHTMARE LAND with my tabs! Here's what's happening:
--I click on a thread, read the posts, and when I click on the bottom right link to get to the thread's second page, that opens up in a new tab.
--I go to a Forum, read a post, click to return to the Forum, and a new tab opens.
--New tabs are constantly opening, and I'm having to constantly close them. As I type this, I have THREE tabs for General Discussion where I should have just one.
I shall go m-a-d to be constantly clicking unwanted tabs closed.
I'm on the current Firefox, 14.0.1. I've had that for awhile, so that's not new in the last few days.
I am ALWAYS confounded by trying to set my Firefox browser to behave how I want. I'll get it, by pure luck, and everything will be great for a long stretch--then crap like this happens.
---I can never find where to block sites. - I've tried to re-set my Tab options the way they were before I followed the online advice, but it's not reverting.
ARGH! -- Help from a Firefox expert?
