Any one else find the Forum (SE) is kind of fractious this

weekend. I was posting from Firefox, and it was saying that there was trouble with my post. I tried a half a dozen or more times over about an hour, so I switched to Google Chrome. When I opened the SE Forum there was my post already there, even though it is still stuck on my Firefox browser as unsent. Weird.

I'm finding things with Firefox getting so unreliable that I'm doing most of my work through GChrome.

I've had the same problem over a 5 day period...( couple of times)

Now, when I receive a "there is a problem with my post" message when I hit Submit....

I open up another tab and visit SE and check to see if my message is posted. And there it is...the post with a problem. POSTED.

This happened a few months ago for a short time.

Has happened in the past and on and off very recently

Cnet gets "post traumatic distress syndrome" while dealing with some of the battles here.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
