(tagging @patdavid and @darix since they may be best placed to have a clue)
I’m not assuming an issue with PIXLS, just trying to figure out what’s happening since it’s kinda frequent. This has been for about two weeks, maybe ??
Hit the site, it responds OK
Choose an area (e.g., Software | RawTherapee | all tags, etc.), and it responds OK
Click on a topic and ~30% of time … wait … wait … wait … wait … wait …
… sometimes it will eventually load, but often I’ll refresh after 30 seconds or so which takes a few seconds and then I’m back at the topic list. Click the same topic again and it loads normally. When it’s slow, it’s always been the actual thread, not a category.
This is consistent when it happens, although it doesn’t happen every time. My 30% figure is a rough estimate but seems reasonable. I’ve rebooted / restarted everything in sight on my end and I’m seeing no consistent issues from any other sites, just PIXLS.
I’ve been seeing this lately, too. I will be browsing the site just fine, then when I open another topic, there is a “spinner” (Java ??) that spins for a long while. Sometimes, I go to another browser tab and do something entirely different, and when I come back to the PIXLS tab, the page has completed loading.
I am on a very fast PC with a fast internet connection (500 mbps). Other sites are not doing this.
I’m seeing this too, in Firefox on Win11. Actually, I’ve never been sure that it’s not something about my internet connection, as I’ve seen this now and then for at least the last few months. Other sites don’t do it (or at least not nearly as often). Glad its not just me
I have a different kind of problem (maybe …) often I cannot load the page when browsing from Firefox on Android. When it happens, I have to kill FF and try again. Eventually it works , but it might take a couple of trials. This also seems random, sometimes it works, sometimes not. I have ublock active, didn’t try without. On any other browser or platform everything works fine.
I use the PIXLS app on Android most of the time and FF on desktop all the time, although FF is also my Android browser (both have AdBlock installed). But so far it’s been better on desktop since @darix made the changes.
