Can't stand MAC, I threw mine from the second storey of my house and smashed it on the ground. It was new too. Piece of crap it was.

Grey? Darker or light? I'm assuming darker?
There's always the Back button. Is your browser up to date?

Mac users, I just updated my browser to Safari version 5.1 and it can't load more than one or two pages consecutively of this site. Effing Safari. So I'm using Firefox to visit here, which works perfectly.

I always use Firefox.  I find it the most intuitive to use.... however, if safari is having issues after an update then that is something that needs to be looked at because it IS one of the commonly used browsers.  Do we have stats Christine on what people are using when they visit?

BTW. Does it give you an error?  What sequence of clicks/typing etc produces the result.  I will try to replicate it on my Mac.

I believe that Jazza does. I will ask him.

Gary, the sequence to error is :

load site (from bookmark) >
new replies or unread posts >
topic 1 (loads) >
back or topic 2 >
the progress indicator across the URL line stops about level with the first 'w' of 'www'--it pauses here when loading each page but eventually gets there with previous pages >
a few minutes later, 'Safari can't open the page "(page URL" because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again.'

I have tried emptying the cache, this allows me to reload topic 2 but attempting to navigate again produces the same error.

Maybe hold off on upgrading until they fix the bugs!

J had surgery yesterday and is not well. It may be days before he can look at it. Thanks for the error message. I will let him know when he is back on deck.
