    spinning wheel keeps on turning


    Just lately I have trouble with certain sites, like specifically Fox News Insider, not loading properly. The spinning dot wheel just keeps turning. I have Win 8.1 and use Firefox browser latest version. Please advise.

    P.S.
    Thanks also for all the previous help with issues. This site is a life saver. :-)

    Try another browser to see if the problem persists.

    Most likely internet problem or on their side slow to synchronize, Do you have a program to show what's coming or going from internet ? Indispensable tool for cases like this.

    It loads and plays fine in IE, but not firefox, which I prefer to use, especially since the ad blocks actually work. The problem loading this page is a new one. I also have a problem with flash player crashing frequently though, so I don't know if it's related or not.

    Ok, I just found the problem. I had to make some changes in privacy badger to allow the site to play. I had recently added it, it's pretty easy to change the accesses by opening the list. But I still don't know why flash player crashes on other sites, that has been happening for some time now.

    Ugh, don't get me stated with Flash, every time I do anything that needs flash and it goes to check for update, it crashes even with that stupid update part of program set to manual. V14 is last version and for now is quiet,
    Just tried that site, Fox News Insider and it doesn't take more that couple of seconds to open first time and more than couple of turns of those circles to open specific video. I'm using FF 30.0 and no add blocks or such. Max internet speed 12/2 Mbps with ping of 7.
