    Unwanted Firefox Feature

    You know how I sometimes mention some aspect of FF that I'm grappling with.

    The latest one is this: you may have two or more tabs open, say AP and a Google search list, then on the AP page you click on a thread and...
    wait, and wait, and wait, until it eventually kicks off loading the page.

    Well, by clicking on the other tab it will start the "waiting" tab. Then you click back to the AP tab and see the thread open. (Phew!)

    If there is only one tab open, then you can (usually) kick it along with a "Re-load Tab".

    But this doesn't happen all the time, and when it doesn't FF is FFast!

    I haven't figured out why. Has anyone else?
    Ta, Am.

    It must be magic, Am, or lack thereof!

    I'm not seeing or have ever seen that phenomenon with FF. On Ver. 11 here and it didn't ever seem to do that in Ver. 10 either.

    Ta guys. It's not something one would wish to share.
    Yep. Had it for a few versions, Andrew. I'm on V11 now, too. It comes up after I've been in a while, maybe ten minutes or more. If I shut down FF and re-start it, everything will be OK for a while.
    It doesn't matter if I've got Skype and Windows Messenger going or not, it will happen after some time.

    I'm with Andrew, never experienced this (using FF exclusively for some time now).
    Does it do the same if you use a different window instead of using tabs?

    Thanks Kym. I don't know whether I should or .

    Mark, and Andrew. It's not something I can boast about, so I will just keep you posted.
