Pages not loading

Since yesterday, about 50 percent of the pages haven't been loading as I attempt to use TA. Here's an example:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i12567-k4425978…

I tried to load this page three times. No posts ever appeared. Have had the same problem with reviews.

It appears that TA is trying to insert a display ad in the middle of the posts and somehow the programing is preempting the actual posts.

It's made TA unusable for me.

As always, it's difficult to directly complain to TA as the pages lack clear contact links where bugs can be reported.

Hi TranscendentalEye;

The Support Forum is to report technical problems.

However, when I went to the page you linked to in your post, the entire thread came-up quickly. Also, no one else has reported the problem that you have described.

I would suggest that you clear your computer's cache and try again.

Best Regards

Thank you, RescueTeam.

I've never had this problem before. It went away soon after I posted this question....

Thanks for your suggestion, however.

Actually, doesn't anyone else have this problem, sporadically? It is not limited to any specific page. I will click on a link to either a forum or a forum post, and.... nothing. Just the "skeleton" of the page loads, but the "meat" does not. (i.e., the text of the post, or the forum thread listings do not load.)

When I hit "reload", THEN the page loads properly.

Anyone else experiencing this? I am using Firefox 3.X.

This issue has been raised before to TA staff. Seems like this glitch only appears when using Firefox. Say, I'm ok with Safari and Opera, but not with FF.

And Refresh (F5, Ctrl+R) button does not always work for me from the first attempt when this glitch appears.
