When replying to a message, or quoting/replying to a message, or, indeed, posting this new thread, there is a noticeable pause while the little circular arrow indicator circles around, then I get an error message with respect to a script (attached).

Win 7, Firefox 48.0. This started yesterday.

Win7, Internet Explorer gives a blank screen and never recovers.

The window below the text entry area that usually shows "Manage Attachments" is missing as I type this.

Is anyone at VerticalScope/Autoguide paying any attention to this issue?

(Yes, I'm aware it is a weekend . . . )

I am curious, what it the best way to bring operational issues to the attention of staff?

Is there a prescribed way to do it?

Thanks!

I kind of think it is highly dependent upon the vendor you decide to have a fight with. There are a couple of vendors that wouldn't notice, but others might raise a ruckus. :rofl:

Thanks for the humor injection!

Just testing from my end (Firefox).

Did get a noticeable pause for the reply window, but no script error.

Dave, I also am using FireFox 48.0 and get a slight noticeable hesitation here but no script errors...

Thanks, TS, the pause is about 7-8 seconds on my desktop, a bit longer on my (less performance) laptop. I haven't tried it yet on my old, old, OLD iPad, but when it was happening on the solsticeforum forum, the iPad would lockup. Internet Explorer (with all the updates as of last week) appears to lock up while waiting on the script to complete, but I'm not sure what goes on there, as I only use IE when I'm having problems elsewhere. I haven't tried Chrome, but maybe I'll try it on my wife's Chromebook.

I probably have something set somewhere deep inside Firefox that causes the notification, something I set back in the dark ages when I was doing a lot more web development. I do very little now, thank you.

I just did a number of quote/cancels. Averaging about 6-7 seconds of pause before the window comes up on my desktop PC (core i5).
Thanks for the verification. I just moved to my old, old desktop PC (core 2 duo) and the pause was a bit longer. My current desktop is a core i7.

Now I've got my feelers out for what I did to enable that script popup, it is research time . . .

:cool:

To avoid the issue, first select "Quick reply" then click "Go Advanced".

The script issue does not occur, the "Manage Attachments" button appears below as well as the "Drag and Drop File Upload" and there is a hardly noticeable pause.

This is the identical issue that Rob the Elder and I had problems with over on SolsticeForum.com. See my post #2

:willy:

I just logged on into this website without using my Username / Password or "Ad Blocker" (off)..
The computer after 3 minutes or less locked up on me. I tried it again and notice this website has a Million Script and video files trying to load at the same time!
This is Horrible, had to go into "Task Manager" to shout down the browser because of this site...

Windows 7 and Firefox. Wow get with some modern tech.

Yeah, well I have been a Lifetime member since i got the car what 2 months now, still doesn't show and I only have 500 message storage, which is odd as its not even a level you can get. Sent 2 messages so far and no reply.

Nice way to make me feel like I sent my money to someone who appreciates it.

Guess I could dispute the charge on my credit card.

hey there,

I would try turning off hardware acceleration on your browser, and turning video ads to "click to play" and turning off auto play. hope that helps a bit.

I use the latest Win10 (just loaded it last week to beat the deadline for Free)and till I read this thread I was cussing Bill Gates. For once, apparently its not his fault!!!

I cannot use the "back" arrow in Firefox for ANYTHING on this site. I finally decided the bast thing to do was mix a Margarita, sit it beside me,then when I want to go back, hit the back arrow and reach for the Margarita and take a sip....or two...till the screen comes back. Then when it comes back, its not yet completely downloaded and if I try to type anything, about the time I hit the key the screen jumps one way or another as ANOTHER picture finishes loading and my keystroke goes some where I didnt intend for it to go.

We need the reverse of "More Cowbell" We need LESS Cowbells. They are eating up processor time. The programmer needs to have ALL graphics and pictures finish loading before putting in the text boxes. The wait will be the same, but I wont be trying to respond when its still downloading graphics.

This is "Computer Graphics Programming 101" nothing new,except the programmer.:nerd:

Curious. I have none of these issues, running Win7 and Chrome. I have a slight delay when changing pages, but that is part of the connection problem I am having, and is not limited to the forum.

I'll repeat for the benefit of the Administrators:

The issue raised by my posting in message #1 has to do with a script that is used to load a part of the message system that deals with the ability to load attachments which is different than the drag and drop features of the newer version of vBulletin.

The issue arose on SolsticeForum a while back and was solved there. See the link to the issue on SolsticeForum in my message #2 .

I have my profile configured to have the least amount of advertising as is possible, and a I do use an Ad Blocker extension in Firefox.

All the rest of you complaining about slow loading, huge grafix files and advertising, complain in your own thread, thank you. This was a very specific complaint about an issue that the support personnel have already resolved on one of the other VerticalScope/AutoGuide forums. This is NOT a general purpose complaint thread.

I don't doubt that your complaints are serious to you, and feel free to start your own complaint thread. Please, only post here if you are seeing the same issue as detailed in message #1 and message #2 .

Thank you.
