Same here. I e-mailed
Lee about an hour ago but he must not be online. I got in with IE7 but it is extremely slow. I am getting the same redirect as you with Firefox and it will not load at all.
This is the URL for V&S including the redirect
The "hhtest" in the middle is not usually there so I am assuming that is the redirect. .
NO problem with FF only IE :(
Unable to get into SV&S with IE. FF is not a problem at all.
At least I'm in good company...
Ohhhhhh..... YOU are ONLY having problems with IE??
I agree with At least I'm in good company...
At least we know it is something
with CNET and not all of us. LOL I will be back when it works in FF3 again for me. IE7 and IE6 before that always crawls here for me ever since that last upgrade with the forum software here a year or more ago so I won't use that here any more. I could use a break anyway.
Your well-need break may be OVER Roddy :)
IE and FF seem to be working fine for me now.
If you're not already well into your break... you might have some catching up to do. Or not.
Give it a try! (Not the catching up.. your browsers!)
I just tried Firefox
again and I got in BUT. I am done for the night anyway.
Ah, so it's not Opera...
I installed a pre-release version of Opera and started seeing the hhtest=1 in all of the forum URLs for the past several days but it never happened in Firefox so I blamed the browser. Tonight it's happening in Firefox too, though I haven't experienced any problems...yet. Fingers crossed.
I was getting that earlier--but not any more.
Any one else having issue still? They are definitely doing something on the backend.
Let me know if you guys are still having problems.
All MY problems are gone - everything is working FINE again.
ALL problems resolved here. No more occurrences!
Had the same last night
with FF only. I logged into my PC as another user and it was fine. What I eventually found is that sites I'd allowed as cookie exceptions had been changed to "blocked". I removed and re-entered the sites including Cnet. I had to enter my user/password again just one time and all has been well since. This is strange because I was doing something some configuration of a remote device at the time and either FF seemed to hang or the device wasn't returning that the changes were completed. I had to shut down FF and restart. After that, I could not get into Cnet using FF...only IE with the user I was logged on as. I thought something had happened at my end once I figured out the blocking was in place. Very strange.
Seems to have cleared up.
Working fine here also with Firefox now which
was my main concern. IE is still slower than a snail here like it has been since the latest upgrade last year but as long as Firefox is quick, that is all I care about. I have a feeling that IE is slow because of the multitude of ads and the multitude of tracking cookies that get installed here because it is fine everywhere else that has no ads. I gave up trying to figure this out a year ago and just use Firefox here now.
The Lexus ad is far worse
I'm tired of that golf ball attacking from the corner of my eye....getting whiplash from jerking backwards to avoid getting beaned.
Ahhhh...got rid of it I think
using Flashplayer security adjustments. Whew....can take off the neck brace.
