    Every now and then I will click on a topic or picture and I automatically know when my computer is not going to open it because it works slower. Then finally it pops up "cannot open web page". This doesn't happen with everything just a few - tonight it has happened on two so far. Just wondering why this happens????

    It has occasionally happened to me. I just hit the back button and click on it again and it comes up just fine.

    same here - happens both when I am posting a comment and when I am opening a page.

    If you are on Internet Explorer browser, try downloading Mozilla Firefox. It is free and will enable you to open many more things than IE will let you, especially downloading and opening picture files. Not all sites are set up with Internet Explorer. I have found after double-clicking everything on here or using back arrow and re-entering, that I just broke down and did what my son advised me to do-Install Mozilla and use that every time I visit the Board. Works like a charm. No more double clicking, every picture opens up, no more switching topics and going back in them just to see the message. We can learn a lot from our children!

    I have Mozilla Firefox and don't have any problems.

    I'm finding that when it seems to be taking too long if I'll go ahead and click again it restarts and goes through without any trouble.
