Just a quick query really.

Last two or three days I have been having problems with this forum, and any other Ubi forum for that matter. It sems that my Internet browser (Firefox 2.0) maybe the culprit, IE 7 works fine but with Firefox I keep getting errors etc. Missing graphics and items are popular. The Firefox browser works fine with all my other websites except this one.

Has anyone else running Firefox experiencing the same or similar problem?

EDIT - I will add that this problem is intermitent.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Same here. I had to wait a few days ago about 3 hours before getting in. Then it takes me 4 or 5 times to reply to a thread.

Today I've had no problems(Yet)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

There are ongoing,, intermittent problems with accessing threads and posts which I've made Ubi aware of. I don't think they are browser-specific, so it shouldn't make any difference whether you use IE, FF or Mozilla.

I've not seen any problems with missing graphics though. Maybe your FF cache is corrupted Goose? Try emptying it to see if that helps.

I'll let you know if/when I hear anything back from Ubi.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Problems i have :

From time to time the forum becomes unbelievable slow. It takes about two or three minutes until the website opens or a reply gets posted.

This effect does not last long, maybe for 20 minutes and then the speed comes back. (I cant say that the forum is "fast" though)

Most of the time it is pretty slow. Especially when the USA wakes up http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


But i did not had the problem with not getting into the forum for longer times like others reported.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Emptied cache, deleted history etc Works fine for a bit then I get the problem all over.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I set mine up to remember username and password, I don't log in anymore. I do that with all sites I go to, so I don't have to remember passwords<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I was going to make a post that I have no more problems, that was until I tried to access this thread when I got a blank white screen with the following error;

1941061425 is an invalid value for m

Then, after clearing history cache etc etc I tried to access this thread again when I got this error;


TXT_INVALID_VALUE_ARG1_INVALID_VAL_FOR_ARG2. Arg1 is '5171067325'. Arg2 is 'm'

I am currently using IE7 to write this post - I think there could be a problem with Firefox itself or the servers since I am having no problems with IE.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'm 99% sure this is a problem with either the forum software or its databases - nothing to do with which web browser we use.

I've not had any feedback from Ubi about this yet. Some other moderators from other Ubi forums have reported these errors too.

I'll ask again.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
