Computer locking up while in forum

We have a Mac OS X and on occasion while reading through the Airstream forum we get locked out. No advance notice or hint,it just locks up, and we have to shut down to get our system back.
Never happens on any other web sites or forums, but the Airstream forum.

Maybe it's trying to tell me something????

This happens to me when I accidentally wander over the "Air Classifieds" tab in the upper right corner of the Web page. Try clicking on the BACK arrow/icon to jump back to the previous screen. That works for me, but your problem may be caused by something else, MAC-related. (I have a Win7 laptop.)

1st, make sure that you have all your OSX and applications software up to date.

if that does not improve things, then next use your disk utilities to check the hard disk drive for errors.

those two things will fix many instances of Browser freeze...

I have had this happen to me occasionally in the last month or so. It seems to be because the ad at the top between the two blue horizontal bars doesn't load, so the rest of the page locks up and won't finish loading. Our systems have nothing in common. I have a Dell computer with Windows 7.

Do you guys have an add blocker so you don't have to load ads. I have MacBook Pro with mac OS X 10.6.8 and I have never had it lock up.. try an ad blocker. Safari and firefox both have them. Not sure about Windows browser, haven't used it in years and years..


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
