    Lately I've been having issues with this site. It often locks up, even in the middle of typing and asks me to recover the webpage. Very frustrating. I'm using Windows 10 and this happens with both Inernet Explorer and Micrsoft Edge.

    Anyone else having issues?

    sometimes at evening time (or early night) it runs very slow and typing has a noticeable delay, but when I try again after a couple of hours it works well. I use Safari on MacOs X. if your problem persist, please, let me know.

    I move this thread in the appropriate section.

    When things get slow and balky, I exit my browser (clearing cookies and cache, etc) and restart. I'm on Windows 10, using Firefox.

    sometimes this solve the problem, but I think that probably in my case it depends on the server because happens always at the same time, late in the evening. I suppose that the server of this forum is located in canada, so this happens in the morning (canada local time), I presume when the tech staff works on the server.

    Hey Padaek,

    Are you still encountering these issues? If so, have you already tried clearing your cache/cookies and refreshing the page? If that hasn't helped, do you notice the site locking up on certain pages (mid - typing to recover the page) or does this appear sporadic? If you see it lock up, do you happen to notice if the page is hanging onto anything at the bottom left corner of your browser window (it'll say something like "Waiting on xxxxx...." x being the name of whatever is loading).

    Also, could you test to see if there are any improvement if you try the site on Chrome? Not saying to switch to chrome but simply to test it out. Let us know of your findings and if the issues persist, please outline the steps you are taking which lead you to the error (recover the webpage) so we can do our best to replicate this and find a solution for you.

    Thank you,
    Natalie

    How has the suggestions above from Natalie worked for everyone else?

    Thanks Richard,, the site seems to work 'smoother' (if that's the right term) in the morning when broadband speeds are faster. Does that make sense?

    Yeah, it would make sense as less people are on line in the morning so traffic would be less. Are you still having issues with the site locking up?

    The site just froze up on me with Firefox. The cache and cookies were cleared. I was fine till I tried to add a photo.

    It seems fine though in MS Edge.

    Testing with Firefox

    Edit: I was able to post the pictures below in Firefox without issue. What method did you post the image when you got the issue?

    I am using Firefox on my desktop computer and lately this forum has never worked so well for me. Downloading the pages is much quicker than it ever has been and all features of this site are working better than ever. So I am a happy camper.

    Later, Firefox worked just fine. I don't know what happened from one time to the other. The way I was trying to post the pictures, was with the icon on the toolbar.

    And today, it is working just fine.

    Sometimes these glitches intermittent but if it occurs again and around the same time - let us know (as there may be a pattern here) so we can look into it. Otherwise, if everything is working out OK for you - then great!

    Cheers,
    Natalie

    Hey guys,

    Can you elaborate on the link issue, can you provide me with the URL link so I can test this out please.

    Thank you,

    When entering url on MAC goes straight to F800,
    When loaded on mobile, Android running chrome or samsungs' own internet app goes straight to S1000RR forum, screenshot below:-

    depends on the new mobile layout... I know that the tech staff is warned and is trying to fix some issue.

    I have just had a week of being F800riders-deprived. It appeared that maybe my address was being blocked, or somesuch. I tried everything, two different desktops, one running windows Vista, one XP, and my new laptop running W10. Nothing worked, the connection would time out. I tried all sorts of settings changes, security settings etc., and still no go. My mobile connected but only came up with the disconcerting RR1000 entry which I couldn't navigate properly. Tried again today and here I am! (obviously).
    Very confusing for an old troglodite, but have my fingers crossed for a glitch-free future - I missed you guys!!!

    I don't attempt to understand stuff like this Ian. I just blame everything on Gremlins.
