Is there such a thing as a 'stuck' or 'undelivered' or 'blank' webpage AUTOMATIC
reloader? I've tried searching but didn't find one.
Situation is this:
When I click on a random webpage, the browser will sit there with a blank page "forever"...just spinning the "loading page" icon. It will sit there for an entire day in this state if I don't manually close or reload the page.
However, if I manually
reload the webpage, it starts loading almost instantly
(as do most webpages).
This "failure to load" of even part of a webpage happens often enough that it is quite annoying.
It's like some of the transaction packets are just lost so my computer's address sent to the ISP isn't sent or it "lost"...or the return data get "lost in transit" (like lost luggage)...but Firefox doesn't know it so it just sits there...spinning
The URL DOES get placed in the Firefox webpage address field.
What I'd like help finding is a plug-in/add-on that will automatically
start re-loading a webpage...say within 2 or 3 seconds if there isn't any (or there is an incomplete) response from the ISP and the page remains completely blank while Firefox thinks it's still in the process of downloading something.
Or...is the problem something else entirely? Perhaps a network, modem, or registry setting? Or...is this a possible glitch between the ISP and the target webserver? (which would indicate NO redundancy in the ISP's code)
I've used multiple computers, cable modems, cables, Win7 and WinXP, and multiple Firefox versions...all at the same cable node (which is verified high quality signal). The problem persists through them all.
I put this in the Network forum as my suspicion is this is more likely a network subsystem firmware/software issue, not a Firefox issue.
