Can't Access Site From Laptop
« on: May 15, 2015, 04:23 PM »
So I thought the site was down today, because whenever I try to access it, it gets hung up in the connecting loop. This is on the Pale Moon browser. I tried it out on Firefox, and the homepage loaded, but once I tried to log in, I'm right back in the connecting loop.


Then I tried my tablet (Android, Chrome browser), it loads just fine.

Does anyone have any idea why I can't access the site from my laptop? Thanks!

ETA: I am seeing that if I disable my adblock software, the site loads, but it's so darn ugly and busy with all these ads.

I had the same problem with my PC. Since I'm not here very often I just decided to leave it off on this domain.

I keep having to turn if off here, every time I leave the site, adblock turns itself back on. Oh well, it's manageable.

On a similar, but maybe completely unrelated note, I can't see any sigs or user pics when I browse the site on my tablet, android, with the Chrome browser. I see them fine on my laptop though.

Can I just say that it makes me a bit uncomfortable that the ads here are now showing me stuff directly from my amazon wishlist? I don't even know how that's possible, but it's happening.

I found a workaround (hopefully). Try Firefox and Ghostery on the site.

Yeah, with the way everythings linked up nowadays I'd be surprised they don't have your goodreads wishlist or tbr list as well!
