Hanging pages

Post by arcman » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:33 pm

Why do so many pages hang while loading?

Virtually every time I use Avant, or just IE8 for that matter, I eventually get a page to hang. Sometimes it takes a five or ten seconds, sometimes easily a minute before the page resumes loading. I usually give up and restart Avant after ten seconds or so, knowing it won't fix itself. 99% of the time, I restart the browser and the page loads fine. This happens on a daily basis, with every version of Avant I install.

To be honest, I haven't tried disabling any of the options under the tools dropdown. If this could be the culprit, any recommendations as to which one to start with?

Thanks.

Lee

Does the page load properly if you refresh it while it's hung?

And how about reopening it in a new tab before restarting avant?

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:
Avant Version; System(also point out it is a 32 or 64-bit OS);IE; Memory Size; CPU Speed;
Optional: Firewall; Graphics Card

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.

I too regularly get this problem particularly with the IE9 engine. Sometimes opening a new page resolves the problem but not always. Refreshing the page doesn't make any difference. When I have had the patience, I have waited 2 minutes for a page to load. There does not appear to be any pattern either although eBay's site is the one where hanging pages occur most often. Hope somebody has the answer because it is quite annoying.

I have this problem with the IE8 engine too. Normally when I click on a url and a tab opens, if it don't start downloading the data within 5 seconds, I hit Refresh and that normally does the trick. Also there are some add-ons/plug-ins that will slow down Avant. You can try disabling them one at a time and see if that makes a difference.
