    I was having issues with my interweber last night and this AM
    Finally I refreshed my computer and got back online. Firefox has been my browser for about 10 years? And there hasn't been any problems. It's kept me safe and warm and fuzzy
    No really it's been great
    Now,today I got back on here for a while and all of the sudden I couldn't go anywhere else on NWFA . I tried other sights and no problem. But it wouldn't even blink when I tried getting on here.
    I'm on IE right now and it scares me to think of the viruses I might be getting. AND all I have is Norton for infection,I mean protection
    Anyone else having issues like this?

    Its blocking me as well chrome is fine, doesn't even try and resolve acts like a dead click,
    clearing cache and manual inputting address results in the same block.
    I don't usually use Chrome so noticed first try.

    Same problem here using FF. Funny thing is I can still get here on another puter also using FF. I have spent the last hour trying to fix it, even ran a virus scan.

    Same here, but I know Joe is in the process of actively working on issues with those sidebar items:

    https://www.northwestfirearms.com/threads/sidebar-recent-threads-block-no-avatars.214164/

    https://www.northwestfirearms.com/t...threads-block-wrong-thread-categories.214165/

    https://www.northwestfirearms.com/threads/having-issues-with-the-website-let-us-know.209062/page-4

    I wonder if the stuff Joe is doing right now may have messed with FireFox access, at least temporarily?

    Make sure you guys tag @Joe Link to make sure he sees your posts on this stuff.

    Here's what I've learned. I don't look a gift horse in the mouth too harshly.

    This site (to me), remains the most unstable of any similar sites. When it works well, I say thank you. When it's not working so well, I know that tomorrow it'll probably be okay, and then I'll say thank you.:)

    WAYNO.

    I just went through this, and just now have been able to get here.
    No matter where I was, when I clicked on the NWFA bookmark, it was like hitting "refresh" on whatever page I was on. That lasted for about an hour.
    It wouldn't allow me to access NWFA AT ALL.
    And yes I use FF exclusively. With the NoScript add-on.
