What is contextweb?

  1. Jan 20, 2012 #1
    My PF screens stop loading and the status bar says "Connecting to tag.contextweb.com". I even got a contextweb splash screen one time.

    I use Firefox with Ghostery. There was a similar issue about a year ago...

    Hope this helps.

    Banner ad service. Just got an email from support that they had an outage. Should be fine now.

    It's not fine. It often takes me 10 seconds or so to load a page. (Not every time though). This has been going on for about 24 hours.

    It hadn't recovered for me about an hour after Greg's post #2, but it has now.

    It was still bad for me a couple of minutes ago. (About a 10 s wait before the page loads). It was pretty annoying when I wrote a couple of posts a couple of hours ago, when I had to wait 10 s or so for each preview.

    If you happen to be using linux, you should be able to add that address into your /etc/hosts file to fix the problem permanently.
