Feb 28, 2013 9:09 AM

TSIA.  use.typekit.com is the reason why these forums are excrutiatingly S L O W.

 

Will Adobe kindly kick use.typekit.com to the curb, so some activity can actually take place?

 

Thank you,

    I don't notice any slowness on the Adobe Forums.

    Can you try an alternative browser or a different machine. It works fine at our end as well.

    Still: it's a problem with your machine, not the forums themselves.

     

    What happens if you browse to the URL that is responding slowly (the only typekit URL I can see on this page is http://use.typekit.com/fxk4olf.js. Is that the one you're seeing being slow)? What do you get if you do a tracert on it?

    Sounds to me like your browser is screwed mate.

     

    Try D/Ling Chrome and using that instead. It's lightyears ahead of IE, and substantially better than FF for general browsing.

    Or else, try resetting your browsers. That may help.

    Hi,

     

    I would suggest the same, in that case

    Saying that Chrome is as bloated as IE is a gross overstatement. And saying that Chrome has JS issues while you are using IE is...  I just don't know what that is.

     

    Regardless, you're right. getting Chrome will probably not solve the issue. The issue is either withy oru machine or with your network. 

     

    Are you sure you can't try it from any other machine?  Preferably two machines, one that is on the same network and one that is not. That may help you narrow down the issue.

     

    Also, try disabling anti-virus and firewalls and see if that changes anything.

     

    You appear to be the only one having these issues, so clearly something is wrong on yoru end and you need to trouble-shoot.  Despite your Chrome bashing, I wish you luck in fixing this.

     

    Bloated... pfft.

    You have a very peculiar outlook on the web if you position IE as being superior in any way to Chrome. It's quite simply not. IE has been a laughing stock for a number of years now. This is not anti-Microsoft bias (I rail against those types, I have the deepest respect for Microsoft), it's just that IE is ****. Everyone knows this. You'd have to be one of the few web professionals that even uses it for anything other than browser-compat testing.

     

    Aside from that, if these forums are so important to you, then put your money where your mouth is. Fix your computer. The problem is not with the forums, it's with your machine. So do something about fixing it. Don't just say "no, don't want to do that".

    I would paste the message, here, but IE won't let me paste what I've copied.  Basically, it says "Network error: A communication error occurred ' '".

     

     

    Is this in response to my request asking you to browse to the URL that was giving you a problem?

     

    You need to put more effort into feeding back to us. If your IE install doesn't work properly, use a different browser. But from what you say, you have a network issue on your end.

     

    Did you do the tracert?

    If I could propose a workaround.. I am not really sure what use.typekit.com offers that the site is using.. but I put the following entry in my hosts file

     

    127.0.0.1
    use.typekit.com

     

    The adobe site still comes up fine and doesn't look any different.  All your symptoms points to that fact that *you* have an issue with your network,firewall, etc.. The above workaround may bypass trying to connect to use.typekit.com at all.

    Right: so it sounds like your network is blocking that IP address. Which'd be what your problem is.  Get it unblocked.

     

    (or do what Tim suggests).
