If changes I made last night didn't fix it, I'll have to go further, so let me know.

Had to do an actual reboot, sorry for the glitchiness. I need to try configurations each day to maximize performance, so this will happen about once a day. Thankfully, it is less than 3 minutes' downtime.

What ever changes you made help with Internet Explorer. It's zipping through the forum real fast. Firefox is still hanging after a few pages for some reason. But it might just be me. I don't know. I can just use IE when I come here.

Thanks.. I'll do some testing with Firefox and see if I can reproduce the issue. It's hard, as it may be just random moments when there are a dozen or more people accessing something at one exact moment.

To all: I need to know of ALL hanging issues, anything with regards to "waiting on www.carls-sims-3-guide.com", blank pages, or stalling. If it is waiting on ads, that's outside my control, but when it says specifically that it's waiting on THIS site, it's a problem with the server config. This server is using entirely different means of sending files, so it's a learning process for me and does require some tuning and experimentation on my end.

I would expect the issue with Firefox has cleared up. I've done some tuning and the server has never been in better shape. If it's still happening, it's not anything I'm able to see - we actually have extra resources for once. At one point, the last server had less than 100mb of RAM left to utilize :O

I am going to see how this keeps going, but may attempt installing a different server application before Sept. 2 but will let everyone know if that's the case. There are some that are absolutely amazing in speed and reliability, though new compared to the old one we've used all along.

I was still having a problem with Firefox stalling out when loading pages but I have it resolved now. I reset Firefox and everything is working great now.
If anyone else is having the same problem reseting Firefox may help you also. Follow the instructions given on this Reset Firefox page.

I also use Firefox.  I've been having problems for a few weeks, so I'm not sure whether it coincides with the server migration.  I get hanging but also flickering/flashing, which can get quite disturbing at times.  I'll try the reset and see whether it helps.

Not sure if it's related to the server or what, but when I'm posting and I click the spell check button, all that happens is a new window pops up with nothing in it. I even deliberately spelt something wrong and nothing happened.

Thanks for the report. I configured the server to use spell-checking, but it appears our theme on the Forum doesn't support it. I wanted to allow it, but given modern browsers tend to have that, I'm disabling it so that no one bothers clicking just to see the blank screen. I was hoping it would work for some people, but it doesn't appear to be working for anyone.

@hazelnut  - did the reset of firefox settings help you? Given the move to a new IP, things could be very strange with cached data in a browser. Anyone with trouble should try that first. After a month, these issues should clear up as the info cached is only set to last for 30 days.

So far, it seems quite promising but I haven't been online much in the last few days.  I'll let you know...

Sorry for the double post but I wasn't sure whether an edit would be noticed.  I'm still having problems.  It appears to be related to Flash Player crashing but doesn't seem to be happening on other sites.  Yesterday and today, it went into flickering mode again and just now I had to switch off my computer with the on/off button because even Ctrl+Alt+Del wouldn't stop it hanging - although my dying hard drive may be partly responsible.

Some of our ad partners use flash, of course, for animations and such. I'm sorry that bottom ad.is triggering it for you, when it's meant to be out of the way. A dying hard drive would definitely lock up that way, upon reading flash or some other program. I had that exact problem last year. When it's affordable to fix, I recommend newegg.com or amazon, as they can both net you a good terabyte hard drive for around fifty bucks.

Thanks for the advice: I'll bear it in mind.  It could really do with a RAM upgrade as well.  Might be simpler just to buy a new computer ???.

Not sure if this is a problem with the server or it's on my end or what, but today whenever I get an email to tell me someone has replied to a thread, the link doesn't work. I click either link to view the thread or the link to unsubscribe and all I get is a white page with the message "Internal Server Error."
