I’m not so sure it’s “nothing to do with images”. At the same time, on all store pages I access, I’m seeing the grid of product thumbnails with no graphics, collapsed into just the text boxes. Then after a few seconds the page fills out with all the thumbnails. Both problems started up just a couple of days ago.

Someone suggested, either on this thread or another, that we might have been getting problems with Cloudflare over the past few days. I certainly don’t remember seeing the site glitch in quite this way before — when did DAZ start using Cloudflare, anyway, just at the store switchover, later, or earlier?

Yes there seems to be a hesitation until the icons load even in the forum.

I see the delay withe the images showing too, even if they are already loaded into the cache.

For the links not going to the exact post though, unless they were using that CloudFlare all these years that shouldn’t be the problem. I’m not saying there’s no chance it is, and same with the thoughts that images are causing the problem, but this has been an issue off and on for years, long before this site upgrade happened. I remember it doing it for a week or more last fall/winter as well (or the very end of the summer before [not this last one]). It drove me insane because I was a lot more active in the forums then, before the site changes, and it happened a lot. It seemed like it would pick out a particular post on whatever page you left off on and each time you clicked the notification link it took you to that particular post rather than the new one.

I’d really like to know what the HELL this is all about?? 

I was looking over some product pages and down where the promo thumbnails are now little ads.  There is a close button on the lower right corner but come on now DAZ…. This is not OK with me.  cool mad

These appear on just about every page I check out. 

More info… this is an ad from Color My Facebook powered by Superfish.  I was able to obtain something of a link but not really:

[removed]superfish.util.bCloseEvent(document.getElementById(“infoBtn”), 2);

I do not have any addon called “Color My Facebook” in Firefox.  SO I don’t THINK it’s from my end of things. 

Looked under the Page Info located under the Tools menu in Firefox.  I found the links.  This is making very angry.

That is…bizarre. I haven’t gotten that. I even went to “A Curious Passage” page to see.
Sure you don’t have some adware or virus?

Opps* didn’t see you added more info.

Now that I have the name I found a bunch of cookies called “Superfish” in my cookies area and deleted them.  Not sure how they got there.  I don’t go to junk sites at all.

Reading some stuff you may want to browse to:  my computer, c drive, programs. Go to the Surf Canyon folder, open it and uninstall.

Nope, don’t have anything called Surf Canyon folder in Programs or Programs (x86)

Deleting those cookies seems to have fixed it…. fingers crossed.  I have a pretty stealth system so that’s really surprising to have that happen.  I do recall having to shut off the Firewall briefly today working with Amazon.com to resolve a download issue regarding an MP3 album I purchased.  So perhaps it snuck in the door during that few minutes the firewall was offline…

Is anyone else having problems with the Shopping Cart and wish list.  Every time I try to go into either the site just freezes up and doesn’t respond.  I have tried in both FF and Safari.  Have reset all history and cache.

Thanks

No freezing* but the store is noticeably slower to respond to these links than it was a week or so ago.

* yet…

The Superfish stuff most likely entered your computer through your own action. You probably installed the Superfish Windows Toolbar or one of its siblings either intentionally or via backpacking on another program’s installer.

We had another user recently with it too.

Yes, it’s a nasty sneaky thing that backpacks on other stuff and then tries to convince you that you got it elsewhere.

And now my wishlist page has gone completely grey. There’s about half of the usual header content minus the menu, the breadcrumb trail band minus the text, then nothing but dark grey.

Much more of this and I’ll take up knitting instead…

[edit] And ten minutes later it’s back again.  <headdesk>

On the old site, when the notifications of posts would not take me to a the post it was supposed to, DAZ and everyone said it was my browser that was at fault.

Considering that I’ve not changed my browser or updated it since I started having to scroll to the new posts once again, I don’t think it’s the browser this time.

At least all the frustration is giving my credit cards a break.

My checkout just stalled, I can’t get past the Payment Information page. Already sent an aaaiiiee-mail to Sales, just going to cross my fingers and hope for the best.

Anyone else corked up?
