CNET Had Issues This Morning....

I also have had problems with the CNET forums for the last couple of days. (Posting, etc.). We were notified of a problem by Lee, the forum manager, but it seems like things are better now..

How 'bout you? Are things better on your end now?

Hope this helps.

type about:config into the location line, clk pass the warning message given, then enter "alive.timeout" without quotes into the search line. Double the timeout setting and then close the config tab. That will give you longer time before the browser quits trying or waiting on a reply.

If you want, you can just put in "timeout" and have access to a lot of settings you can shorten or lengthen as desired.
