View Full Version : tips for bypassing some weird browser(?) bugs?

2013-08-06, 08:36 PM
The last week or so, I've been having issues accessing two sites.
One's a small board I visit sometimes, and the second, DA.

I keep getting the following errors(on both IE 8, 9, and 10, as well as the current firefox);

Screenshots(warning, a bit big):


DA started doing that this afternoon, but the board's been inaccessible to me for about a week.

seems like DA is working again.. not sure what's goin' on with the other site though

In general if a problem is happening on several browsers, the problem is with the site, not the browser.

Is there any reason you're trying to access "www."?

The first error is because it's trying to access an invalid URL.

to.. to be honest.. I was mostly embarrassed about visiting the site in question..
4chan in case you're wondering, so not exactly small.. but it has a bad enough reputation that I was a bit worried about outright mentioning I couldn't access it for some reason...

unedited url was; http://www.4chan.org/

HAve you tried switching to Google Chrome? Heard many people really liking it.

Firefox has some problems in certain versions on 64 bit systems too. I use Waterfox recently and nearly all my problems are gone. There is basically only one left... and that is that Waterfox isn't updated anymore.

About the DA thing. Probably the site is down. If you can't connect to it google "is giantitp down?" and you will find pages that check if the site is online or offline. That way you can be sure if this is your or their problem.
