    Constant page update!

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Thanshin, Apr 6, 2011.

    The pages are constantly updating. Is it a problem on my side? Or some kind of new banner or whatever.

    I ask instead of investigating it myself because I'll have to stop using the page today, as it will quickly eat all my connection limit (at work).

    (Edit. Not happening on the phone browser, though.)

    Crap...

    You mean the page is constantly refreshing? :confused: It's not doing that for me, and it shouldn't for you...

    Yes, that's exactly the problem.

    I'll investigate a litttle.

    It happens in IE7. It doesn't happen in firefox nor Android's Dolphin.

    I've let Daniel know, but I'd recommend using an alternative browser for the forums for the time being. Also, have you considered updating IE? You're at least one version behind the times.

    Project requirement. Otherwise, I wouldn't touch ie with a giant of polish lineage.

    The page is constantly refreshing? This seems very unusual. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    I suspect it's on your end and/or a problem with ie7.

    I've never heard of it happening to anyone else. I suspect it is either a browser config issue, or possibly a piece of malware on his computer.

    Well, I won't install ie7 at home but I'll keep trying to find the problem on monday. There should be an equivalent to firebug for ie7.

    I'll keep you informed if it's anything interesting (not just ie7 incompatibility).

    I've used every IE from 6 to 9 on this site but never encountered that problem. I wouldn't blame it on IE. It is definitely not typical IE behavior.

    Constant refresh is over.

    Maybe you all know by now, but the constant refresh has stopped. It works now.

    Time to read two weeks of posts. :)
