Trouble with Blogs:

Howdy Y'all,
I know over the past several months there have been issues with bloggers reading some blogs.  Mine has been hit by this issue and I work to try and 'mix-it--up' now and again to try and change some stuff so that it will open easier.
For example, yesterday, I changed my blogs per page from 10 to 5.  But, now if you pop in and I've been an active blogger that day, you might miss stuff from two days before because I've posted 2-3 times on that random day.
Another change I made (also not crazy about) was to change my comment box to a page view and comment.  I don't think that made a difference except that if someone is having trouble loading the page - then, forget about the comment box opening for you, right?
I know, because I have an issue here or there with another blogger on a rare occasion.
Anyhow, I was reading Stacys Random Thoughts, and she has readers who encounter this too.  According to a little button on her blog, it's due to the fact that IE doesn't get along with blogspot so well anymore.
So, her button also has a little link to FireFox 3.  She swares this works and fixes the problem.  So, if you want to try it?  I'm just here to help and share. :-D  Y'all love me, dontcha!
Anyhow, I don't have her cute little button for it but I can give you the link to download it:
Good luck and don't forget about my EXPOse Dry Erase Marker giveaway!  And, don't forget you still have time to enter to win a copy of Monopoly Town -- the game for younger children!  Just comment HERE to enter to win.  YEP!  It's THAAaaaat Easy!
Happy Bloggin!  Happy FWFD!!!

I have to say that I really hate the drop down comment box. I much prefer the new page or pop up. This style doesn't work with my old mac laptop (using Camino) which means I can't comment on blogs that use this comment style until I get to a newer computer that can run Firefox.

Going along with what Jay says, I hate most comment forms--I know it makes it easie for spams, but I tend to believe the easier it is to comment, the better!

I agree; I like the pop up box the most. Because I can still view the page while commenting. And, I hate to reload a page to comment -- then reload to go back and read the other post/s.

Y'all will be happy to know I put it back the pop up box. ;-)

Yes it stinks! I use FF on my netbook and life is grand. But I also found its not all versions of Ie only the newest ones. I use I think version 5 or 6 on my desktop and its fine but ie 8 forget it, it aborts almost all blogger blogs. I also heard its the google friends connect widget casusing the issues? IDK but I dont want to remove the followers widget. I need to put something about best viewed in FF on my blog becasue Im sure its frustrating to readers!

It did load lickety split for me today and no bombing, as it had been for weeks on occasion. Think your tweaks may have done it.
