Occasionally seeing this when browsing cnet

While browsing forums but often when when previewing message replies, FF gives "Waiting for surveys.cnet.com". This is followed by a long wait and page not found message. Various messages appear in the status bar at one time or another but this one seems to cause problems. Not a biggie. Just FYI

Not always, but I sometimes see the page load appear to stall with the surveys.cnet.com.

I don't know the answer, but suspect it is something to do with blocking ads with AdBlock. Do you use that as well?

That's a good thought. I could disable it for a time. I don't always see the "surveys" status message but others instead. Of course it's when the browser stalls that I pay attention. I've gotten to know when it's gotten stuck and just press stop and the back button to return. When this happens while previewing a message as I tend to lose what I've typed. Sometimes I'm happy for that. Happy
