This is the only website I consistently have problems with. I haven't made any of the changes and really don't intend to. It is NOT my systemm or computer or software as it is doing the same thing on any of three machines I use. A dell desktop running XP a Compaq Laptop running Vista and this Netbook running XP.My service is thru cox cable. I have difficulty loading most of the time when I have trouble. I get the message 'Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage'. The other problem is navigating within when I finally DO log on. You hit the return and it just freeezes. Enjoy participating when I can but it is definitely becoming one of my less preferred sites because of these problems. Itis the ONLY site I experience these difficulties with.

Hate to be a gadfly but designing a website that doesn't work with Explorer is a really bad idea.

Explorer has about a 75% share of the market.

I used to do this for a living and I know what I am talking about. Cleaning caches and other ways of optimizing your browser isn't going to correct poor web protocols.

This board is based on a system [UBB] that has a record of trouble going back many years.

My fear is that this great group of people are going to eventually tire of the site not loading correctly or whatever the problem is.

this is, without a doubt, the slowest loading, most troublesome web site i visit (or try to visit) daily. i use windows xp, explorer, kaspersky, java, and others, along with high speed sat. feed, and rarely have speed issues on the other gun/hunting-related sites. i'll keep trying because i enjoy this site.

I'm a computer dummie. How's this and what the heck is Zlib compression? Should it be enabled or disabled?

Thanks,

I have a brand new computer, new software, IE8. the works.All other web sites load in a flash.This is the only website I visit that is slow. Usually at least 30 seconds to load and then the same when moving from page to page. also the only web site that I frequent that requires Adobe Flash Player and Java.I belive they are only required for all the advertisements

Same here. I'm not having problems with any other site but the 'Fire!

Security settings at work coupled with the ever-increasing amount of ads/script running on the 'fire have made it impossible/unbearable to view the forum during downtime at work. Maybe that is a good thing for work . . . but I don't think it's a good thing for the forum.

I'm new here and was having the same problem with just this site (everything else ran fine). I don't know why it would matter for here but I changed my DNS servers to google ones instead of my ISP's and it's working fine now.

use to be my favorite site..now getting sick of even tring to get here let alone go through it...what a shame...someone here knows why this is an issue and I suspect it has to do with greed or ignorance, but then again, I am ignorant and frustrated with using the internet in general...bottom line is this isn't near as fun as it use to be..i am not going to try to read all the bs needed to make this site work for me anymore because I do not want to spent over an hour waiting to read each suggestion inbetween clicks to straighten this joke out..i suggest if you want long time users to keep coming back, you personally pm us so we can get the fix within only 15 minutes...pissed in Colorado, "elk"

I'm pretty sure you can download and install Firefox and the Adblock add-on in 15 minutes. Hopefully that wasn't too much bs for you to read.

I too was having lots of trouble with this site and just added the AdBlock extension to my browser (Google Chrome) and problem solved! Here is a link to their site (https://getadblock.com). I even ended up sending them $5, they ask for users to determine what they want to pay.

I hope this helps.

This is really great info.

I was very troubled about the slowness, and deterioration, of navigating the website hunting forums. It became impossible to log on the the past couple of days.

I have a very fast computer only a couple of years old and i use windows 8.1.

I also hire Guruaid and pay them a handsome sum annually for trouble shooting and cleanup. I phoned them yesterday and explained the problem which was that I could go to other websites and all was just fine. They said it was a local site problem and they couldn't help.

So the plot thickens !? I could navigate everywhere on 24 hour campfire just fine, fast and effortless EXCEPT the hunting forums.

I plundered around on my own trying several things: Norton Scan, deleted some stuff, to no avail. In frustration I downloaded Firefox. They noted that I was an old customer, welcomed me back, installed and updated. I then opened 24 Hour Campfire in Firefox and logged on in a flash ! Navigated all over the forum quickly and easily !!!!!!???????

I have no idea what occurred but it worked. I'm calling special attention to the above poster who mentioned Firefox/Google Chrome - Spot on.

It's a bit early yet for me to go back and evaluate any improvements in Internet Explorer, MSN, my browsed of choice but I will follow up.

I've been at this computer thing since it's original introduction and seen and experienced everything and one thing i can count on is the mysteries. There are so many elements, hackers, updated, vagaries, gremlins, glitches.

I have at least 4 four matters unresolved that I can't get answers to or solutions. And I suspect that I probably never will. Fortunately these are very peripheral and don't affect my regular use.
