FR not loading -- caused by Java update?
Vanity | 6/29/2013 | pearls before swine

Posted on 06/29/2013 5:30:18 PM PDT by Pearls Before Swine

About an hour ago someone complained that FR wasn't fully displaying on his computer. I checked on some longer threads as well as the comments display, and it was working fine for me. I'm using Firefox Beta 23 on Win 7.

Then, I happened to update my Java to Java 7 Release 25. Lo and behold, the partial display bug appeared for me when I checked back into FR.

The same problem exists when I use Chrome, so I presume it's the Java update that's causing the problem. Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

Its an FR glitch that pops up about once per week.

Change your page view from text to headers and it works better.

Have the same problem, Win7, Firefox 21. No Java installed, so that isn’t it.

Just the infrequent missing headline sidebar and the page doesn’t scroll very far down. Seen both conditions before and I also just installed the newer JABA so don’t know. It was installed last week and FR was fine this a.m. but now has the sidebar/scroll thingy.

Another quick fix is to limit results per page to 20. Never a problem under that setting.

I’m seeing the same thing on Opera v12.15, since about 7:25pm. I just switched to 20 views/pg, for now.

My dad was in the battle of Java, but that was too far back to be related to this.

No sidebar either.

It’s not a Java problem. It’s a FR problem.

It worked fine earlier in the day, I haven’t changed anything on my computer and it’s not working right at this time.

What might be happening to cause my browser to display the article and only the first 10-14 replies on a thread? New anomaly AFAIK.

To: conservatism_IS_compassion It’s happened before, set your views to 20 instead of 50 and if that doesn’t work, disable sidebars. I haven’t had a problem since I did that.

Thanks to both of you.

I rebooted into Linux, where I’m using a different browser and a different version of the Java language, and the problem is indeed there.

And, yes I remember the 20 posts workaround. Guess what—it worked.

So, I was wrong. However, the sequence of FR working—Java update—FR not working within an hour seemed to point at Java rather than a coincidental reappearance of the bug. Improbable, but it seems to be the case.

Net is glitchy again.

You made a reasonable assumption then requested input from others to check it out. There was nothing wrong with that.

I had it set to 20 posts, but it’s still not working right, don’t have a side panel.

They’ll probably fix it eventually.

Periodically for a few hours or a day F only loads 7 or 8 posts on and Next Page jumps me 50 posts so it misses a lot.

FR not loading -- caused by Java update?

I've never experienced that problem, until this afternoon. I have always set my display to 50 items per page.
Win 7 64bit, IE10

On this thread,
"Paul Ryan Leading House for 'Amnesty' Deal"

The first page of 1-50 only displays 15 and part of 16 relies


The second page, 51-98, just displays 66.

I have not updated anything.
