    whenever a try to view a post it keeps on "connecting" at the top of the browser, and at the bottom of the browser the little "transferring data" box comes up over and over again.

    is there any option i could possibly turn off to solve this issue?

    is there any "fluff addon" that stratics is using that could be cuasing this that could be fixed or gotten rid of?

    lastly, is anyone else experiencing this issue and is a fix possible on my side?

    firefox windows 7

    it doesnt seem to happen if a thread doesnt have many posts in it, like its not happening right now, but the new patch announcement, with 41 replies, it just keeps connecting / transferring data forever.

    Ive noticed it a few times. on firefox too.

    the times I noticed it, seemed to be facebook looping things. However it seems to only happen sometimes and no idea what trigger it.

    so how do i get rid of it? what does facebook even have to do with stratics? its cuasing so much slow loading speed that posting in a thread with more than just a couple posts makes even just typing so slow its really not worth the effort.

    Facebook is Satan... it should be shunned.

    Yep, thanks for posting that. I've never seen it happen to me, so it's hard to get what's happening. I'll poke around a bit and point this out to some other folks to see if we can find the issue.

    This isn't a solution, more of a work-around to ease the problem.

    Try go in Settings -> Advanced
    And tick "Use hardware acceleration where possible" if it isn't ticked

    Seems to have made Stratics in general a lot smoother for me.

    Here's the issue I'm having nailing down a fix,

    I can't reproduce it.
    We're getting any error messages on the server.
    Searching the Interwebs for occurrences of this with Xenforo are resulting in nothing.

    So right now I don't have a fix, but I'm still trying to find a solution.

    Ok for now we've disabled the like Buttons so they won't be loading anymore. This should take care of the problem.
