What's up with vulcanforum.com?

Any thoughts what's going on with this website that causes my browser (IE10) to lock up fairly often, so that I have to close the tab and reopen it to continue?

This doesn't seem to happen much, if ever, on any other forum sites I frequent except this one.

I've done all the standard stuff...cleared cookies, reset IE configurations/settings, run CCleaner, run scans with Malwarebytes and others, etc.... always clean as a whistle.

Same here. Doesn't matter if I'm at home or at work, the website will freeze and I have to start over. For sometime I thought it was just my pc. Thanks for posting.

Look! For whatever reason you need IE, fine. Just simply download google chrome and use it just when browsing this site. You'll be glad you did!

I still prefer Firefox mostly out of familiarity at this point, but I like Chrome too.

Either way, in all honestly IE really kind of sucks...it's failed to perform on par with its competition for many years and yet every copy of Windows has IE shackled to it (including Windows Phone). I'm no IT guy so I can only guess with stuff like workstations in an office setting, but I know that many network configurations require IE as the browser to function properly.

Of course, IE itself rarely functions properly which would lead THIS cynical @$$ to believe that the whole setup, therefore, is not functioning properly lol.

Like Daboo said, if you gotta use it because of work or whatever, fine (but really, should you be WORKING at your workstation ) but get Chrome or Firefox at home.

Actually, at this point, I'd recommend Chrome because I've been having a lot of trouble Flash Player crashing on Firefox. But this site works just fine on it.

I've used all those and prefer IE so going to the others isn't going to happen. I prefer IE because it works more universally without finding addins/plugin, etc. and is normally just as fast or faster.

Besides, it's not IE per se because IE works fine elsewhere...it's something with this site. I've had probably the most frustrations with Chrome. It sometimes takes forever (in our modern expectations of computer performance) to load up and even get to Google homepage. Never had that problem with IE.

Hmm...my guess is it has to do with the advertisements.

Those of us who contribute a bit financially don't see the ads.

It only cost $15 a year to help support the cost of these forums. Or a one time $40 for life.. Kind of a trivial amount.

I too have had the same issues, especially if I've got too many tabs open at once. I also suspect the ads being the issue, sounds like $40 would take care of the problem.

Up until recently I used IE for many years with zero issues that you describe. I am now using Chrome. Do you have any add-on's installed?

There are only three add-ons enabled according to the add-on manager.

Shockwave, Adobe PDF, and Java.
