    Site slow and refusing connection

    Hello,
    You probably know about this, but probably should still report.
    Yesterday and this morning, the site is very slow to respond and every now and then when clicking on a new link I get a "connection refused by remote server".

    Cheers,
    Terry

    yeah, we have had this reported. We are not sure the cause, cause while one person is having issues, others are just fine, at the same time.

    thanks. I am trying to find a common cause, cause the site itself at the server level is running fine and I am not experiencing the issues being reported so makes it hard to track down a cause.

    Not for me tonight - sometimes taking over 30 seconds to see each thread. I get in the habit now to click on a thread then go somewhere else for a few minutes then come back here and repeat the process when i want to look a the next thread.

    Ironically, mine seems to be improving in speed whereas has recently been very temperamental and frustratingly slow.


    Oops spoke too soon. For some reason the longer I'm on the forum the slower it becomes and this is the only site I am experiencing this. What confuses me is that if I type a reply, hit submit, it can take ages to do so. However, if I hit the back arrow, then forward arrow, my reply to the thread is there.

    Next Question.

    What browser are you using? The mods and I have an issue with our chat at present on AP. A bit of fiddling and I found that firefox (and its derivates) have decided to not play nice with chat. Swapped to Chrome and chat is good.

    I have FF, Edge, Chrome and Safari installed on my laptop, mostly to test site changes in each browser, to make sure they work cross browser.

    Right now, FF won't let us access moderators chat, and co-incidentally (or not) is much slower at opening site pages than any of the others. I have been trying it for the last 5-10 mins and FF seems to hang for a few seconds (or longer) on occasion, when the other browsers..don't.

    To add to this, last night FF did an 'update'.

    No problems with the site at the moment.

    I mainly use Chrome. Definitely better than it was but still slow on the odd occasion.
