    To: Admin Moderator Glad you brought FR back up. However, a really annoying quirk surfaced about a full week before the site went down, and persists now. It appears as if every thread is re-posted as a new thread, as many times as the number of replies to it. This makes it very difficult to scan the site quickly for breaking news. The multiple threads ("hiccups") are not affected by my Account settings, Page Layout, or anything else under local control here. If this is an experiment in "Bumping to the Top," please revert back to the normal method of...

    I've been having problems loading pages on Freerepublic for over a week. I thought it was just my connection (I live in the sticks and use a my-fi ATT hotspot for all my internet. However, I have the exact same problem at my work computer in downtown Louisville on a high speed corporate network. The problem manifests itself at least two ways: 1. Pages take so long to load that they timeout and I get a "page reset" message. 2. A partial page loads (often just the first line or two) and then eventually the rest starts showing up in...

    I have a new computer, on which I'm running Windows 10 and using Firefox version 45.0.2 as my browser. My FR account is set to "convenient," which is supposed to mean that I remain logged on even when I close my browser. But I keep finding that I'm logged when I close and later reopen Firefox. I don't have this problem on my other computers or my smartphone, so I'm thinking this is a Windows 10 or Firefox issue. Any ides as to what Firefox or Windows settings I need to adjust? Thanks.

  • Has anyone noticed this about images on the Internet lately?

    Has anyone noticed how it has become more difficult to find images on the Internet lately. Used to you could search Google and a page could be found, you'd click on the image, then you'd be able to get the direct link to the graphic online. Well I'm finding this to be a lot more difficult lately and have noticed a few trends: (1) a lot more of the images are indicated to be "pay" images that you can't use without paying for them as in iStock or Shutterstock, (2) articles are being published as pdf or in similar fashion...

    I need help. This started about a week ago. I click a headline to read the article and when I return to the article index it has updated to a different place and loads all article headlines that have posted while I was reading. Can anyone tell me how to stop this and make it the way it was? i. e. return to where I left.

    Just curious. All week long in our area code 570, the internet has been goofy. Verizon has been denying there was a problem until today. The strange thing is, some people with Verizon are fine, some are not. You get on the internet for 10 minutes and then you get kicked off for a few hours, or as little as a few minutes. It's a random thing. And then the other thing is, some people's internet is just fine, yet others are not, all in the same area. How is that? Usually if there is a problem it gets fixed...
