For about the last 3 or 4 days, I can't refresh E.

The status panel at the bottom of the browser says its either waiting for google analytics or twitter or one of those other little bits of clutter.

Is there something I can do to fix this? I'm using Firefox 6.0. Thanks.

I'm using the same version of FireFox and refresh is working for me with no messages at the bottom of my screen.  I also have my gmail open and a Google account.

I just wiped all E's cookies and its not helped. I get a permanent green circle 'page loading' animation for any page I go to on E, even ones that link from within E such as people's user profiles or O/Os.

It would seem its to do with my browser but I'm clueless as to what to do to fix it.

Right now the task that's not completing is "read flattr"... and flattr has been the 'culprit' for a couple of days now. Usually though its google analytics *sigh*

Have you tried clearing the browser cache? Sometimes that clears up the lag for me.

Works fine for me I am using firefox at the moment and I can refresh it fine.

Works fine for me, but I'm using FF 3.6.20 for Windows, with minimal add-ons

I'm sure it works fine for lots of people! But not for me, hence my asking for help!

I'll try clearing the cache though I hate doing that as it kills so much other useful stuff :(

EDIT: Clearing the cache seems to have had no effect. The browser is now waiting for "ssl.gstatic.com" whatever that is. No other sites do this, only E :( :(

Have you tried disabling all add-ons and trying the site then? One of those might be the culprit.

Sheesh... I see Firefox has undergone a huge face lift with version 6. I can't even find what add-ons I have installed...

Anyone guide me as to where I can see exactly what add-ons are in use? The tools/add-ons button only seems to give a global view of all add-ons with useless stuff like "recommended for you" etc.

You shouldn't have to actually uninstall them. IE  calls it a "No Add-Ons" launch. Firefox I believe calls it a "Safe Mode".

If you don't experience the problem while in safemode, then you can start troubleshooting to see which add-on is causing the issue.

Thanks to you both. I'll spend tomorrow fiddling about.

It seems that clearing the cache has fixed it. It needed a reboot as well which is why I didn't notice any difference the first time.

Thank you everybody for your kind help!
