cnet pages refreshes twice before staying put but I figure it has to to with the popup blocker. maybe that is what is happening with you. try disabling your popup blocker and see if it helps.
I am using Chrome. Whenever I use a link to get to a specific C/NET page it completely displays and then all text disappears leaving only the underlines. After a few seconds the text reappears. This happens on every page including this forum. Other websites work fine.
