One thing that I have noticed for a while is that if I click on a thread title or the "New Posts" link quickly, the little "loading" icon in Firefox just sits and spins. If I hold the mouse button for 1/2 second or so, the update usually loads up quite promptly. I anybody else getting this, and is there a fix for it? Other web-sites don't give me this trouble, so it shouldn't be on my end...
Please, do implement a anti spider filter. I'm more than happy to fill in some additional hidden codes to get access to PF and have normal speed page loading time, but this is ridiculous. Everything loads quickly except PF which freezes up all the times.
For about a month now, I've had troubles only on the PF. Being slow is part of it, but the main problem is that often when I'm on the PF, my firewall program (Outpost) will crash and then the system crashes---just in this last month.
I looked at the 'attacks' to my ports and they were coming from the Physics Forum. Why would the PF site be trying to access different ports on my system? tcp's 1488 and 1489
