Buggy script crashing browsers - Page 2

post #16 of 31

Same issue for me; mac 10.8.3 with Safari 6.0.4. Usually stops responding within five minutes of browsing threads; Back arrow certainly is part of the issue, but not all of it. If i don't respond by temporarily leaving the site it will freeze. Not a huge deal as it can be managed to an extent, but a spot of bother.

This crashing has got to the stage where my Safari crashes every 3-4 page sometimes sooner. Agreed that the back button is most common but not always. And trying to navigate without back button is painful too.

iPad 2 with iOS 6.1.3 for the record.

Please fix this as I am a very frequent user of Head-Fi and this is now getting to the point of me turning off my interest here.

Since I posted before on this Head Fi has actually improved its time when changing pages /or using back/forward. A lot is down to tags that follow you . Nothing is for nothing in this life I expect to pay somehow for posting here And dont mind the slight wait . There again I have an overclocked PC. so I can understand why people  using a slower type of apparatus are not happy.

If it was just speed I wouldn't worry unless excessive. This site regularly, sometimes every change of page, crashes Safari completely. I have to wait for safari to close, 20-30 seconds then reload and then navigate to the new page. It's unacceptable. At the moment, no other site crashes my IPads safari.

If its only happening on Head- Fi we can rule out any type of virus in your  browser . I have had plenty in the past stopping me posting elsewhere on the Web. And my new browser has built in protection as well as my paid for internet protection.

        Unless somebody comes up with an  answer the only thing I can think of is Time Constants that the length  of time taken to change to  

          another page etc is causing "drop-out" as your browser thinks its lost the connection. These "time Constants" can be adjusted in your  

           PC if you look for them. Maybe somebody  knows another answer.

I'm getting a lot of crashes on my Blackberry playbook, for some reason when i'm viewing and then click for the next page it completely knocks of my browser? only ever happens with head-fi and only in the last few weeks.

Well that's one "Headfier" from Australia and one from the UK both using small digitised equipment. IF it happens right away that rules out Time Lag  and must be either the digital receiving equipment at the Head-FI server cant be recognizing the signal from those pieces of equipment either because of the programming on the units or maybe the transmission link has a fault in it. But that's as far as I can go on digital electronics there must be some here who are better qualified than me on digital as  I only have training on analogue equipment.

Glad I am not the only one, I am having this exact same issue.

Although for me it is only about one out of three times that it doesn't crash.

Very frustrating to say the least; I thought this would have been long fixed by now...

I've stopped Java in the Safari settings and its snappier and not crashed so far. So it does seem script related. Incidentally the Google Browser I downloaded also crashed on Head-Fi. Looks like I'll just go without Java unless I find another site I must have it active on.

Head-Fi.... Are you listening? I am sure it's not just us two guys with an issue? Of course I can't rule out OS either. Haven't had my android phone crash but then I don't browse much with it.

every time I try to look at page two of the for sale area, my browser freezes.  Please fix this guys.  its been going on for a while.

post #26 of 31

I spoke too soon on changing a page I was hit by a SCRIPT VIRUS .My Internet protection kicked in and displayed a large balloon  giving information on it. I am NOT blaming Head-Fi but somebody is trying to cause trouble as this has occurred before elsewhere on the net.

You know, I stopped coming here when they changed for format because it was a damn nightmare.  I got a new computer, and thought everything would be great with a nice fast system.  Now we have virus threats..  and pages freeze up browsers..  I'm getting scared to spend time here now.

 

seriously, all the java isnt worth it.  please make some changes.

Java or javascript? There shouldn't be anything loading Java apps on the site. If there were, you'd get a pop-up asking you to approve access to Java. Additionally, Java can't run on an iPad, only javascript.

 

Regarding responses to this, we report the issue to Huddler, who deal with it. It is very likely, given the number of sites that now use the Huddler platform, that many people have reported it and it will be fixed once they figure out what is going on.  smile.gif

Probably my lack of knowing programing terminology here.  all I know is it doesnt work well.  In the beginning, I couldnt stand all the adds that have to load.  makes the site unwatchable on older equipment.  and now we add the freezing issue.. 

 

hopefully steps will be taken.

Sorry, you are correct, it is JavaScript I have turned off in the Safari settings. Didn't realise the difference. Turning off prevents most ads from displaying, but importantly, it stops the site crashing my browser. This has only become an issue recently, I'd say in the past 3-4 weeks. Never had an issue until then. So whatever the change its recent.
