    Why does the forum time out and cause you to sometimes lose your post or have to start over? In IE it will go to gray with a red x, in Chrome it just will not post the message and it does the same thing on iPad and you have to copy the post, refresh and then paste the message back and then post it.

    With Chrome i get a little X on the screen as it trys to refresh but most of the time it goes through without incident.
    I suspect it is because your internet is up the wrong way around coz your on the other side of the world. Your sink water goes the wrong way too.

    Same here, it varies from almost as soon as the window is done opening, to a few minutes after opening.  I contacted Aneros a couple of times and even sent a screen shot of what it did, but I haven't received any response from Aneros.

    It's kind of annoying, but what can you do?  At least, I now know that I'm not the only one with that problem.

  • Do you get a message or notification that the site is 'draft saved' or something like that, before the browser freezes? Does the text that you've typed appear after the browser refreshes? All the text should return after refreshing because the site is saving it periodically. If not, maybe your browser is at fault and crashes during the backup process. I get a similar problem on the Kindle but not on my laptop or phone. Maybe a different browser like firefox would work better. Also, if you sign in, you'll have a tab at the top and to the right of"all discussions", "my discussions", etc. that says"my drafts". This is where all the saved text that you typed in went. I just found it and this will save me a lot of aggravation next time the browser crashes.

    In IE I get a grey screen with a red x if I click the x I can usually get it back. In Chrome nothing happens until I click post comment, then the post appears in a white text box and is usually up the thread several messages. I then have copy the post, refresh and then paste it in the text box and repost it. Same happens on iPad
