PCA and the new Firefox Update

  birdface 18:54 20 Feb 2012

Anyone having problems with PCA since the new Firefox update.

All I get is waiting for PCA or waiting for CDN1.2.3 or for 4.Or others.The last one was waiting for Facebook and it took about 40 seconds and I don't even use Facebook.

It will load the pages fairly quickly but it will not fully load with the results at the bottom left of the page Waiting For!!! and it normally goes through a list of things that it is waiting to load.

Like I said the Last one for Facebook took over 40 seconds to load.

This has been going on for about a week or so but can only think maybe since the last Firefox update.

Anyone else notice this problem or is it only me.

Well that was a bit of a nightmare trying to send that.it took about 5 attempts and It would just say basically that PCA was not available.

I was expecting to see about 5 different posts for the same thing.

Mine is the same. On IE9 and Win7 Home Premium. PCA is pitifully this evening and as for posting, I have time to add comments before it is actually sent off! See the comments on the Pineman100 thread.

Really slow tonight

Painfully slow. And am getting frequent warnings from Norton that the site is unsafe and do I wish to continue. Velly strange!!

I just read the comments on the I/E thread and noticed they were having problems on I/E as well so looks like it is just a PCA problem and nothing to do with the new Firefox update.

I do use another site that uses CDN and they have had a bit of trouble over the last week or so.

Same sort of problem waiting for CDN etc, etc.I am sure CDN is supposed to make the web sites quicker but not at the moment.

Down again looks like an early bed.

It's not just you! http://www.techadvisor.co.uk looks down from here.

Looks like they must have been working on it.It's back again.

Maybe not back 100% but near to it.

It has just been down again in the last 15 mins - appears to be okay now.

It's a PCA problem, I'm afraid. The guys are working on it now.
