For example, when I visit any page it is a crapshot whether it loads completely or not. It seems to depend on what I get in the 'ad' header section. Most ads are fine, the Puritan Vitamin one is not okay. I just get the ad head, and IE says, "done". I have to punchctrl-R until I get a suitable heading. This is not painful for me. Yes, I do know that supporting PF will get rid of the ads, but if this occurs to new users they are not going to stay very long. I would assume this is an artifact of the firewall I am behind, except that there are only 2 sites that do this, PF and gocomics.com. (Hmm. Is there a deeper meaning here?) The 20+ others that I use regularly never have a problem. Thanks for looking.
