Is anyone else having this problem.  I've tried both Chrome and Explorer.  It's getting really annoying.  Surely it's not just me.

I use Chrome and just started having problems with ST pages skipping.  I try to scroll and it skips back to the top.  I've been refreshing the page and that seems to stop it.

Join the crowd folks. Check out the posts on the "login problems".

I'm starting to get a better response from Firefox now in some of the problems that popped up a few days ago. The browser "Edge" seems, at this time, to work best for me now, but still have to bounce back and forth between the two at times. I don't use Chrome. I know everyone has their favorite browser and I have the faith that this will get worked out. It is very frustrating at the moment.

I was able to get Roboform on the Edge Browser and am using it to enter sweeps on my Lucky List.  If you have a Roboform everywhere account, you can also.  See my comments on 11/20 on the thread that fishrmn100 mentioned above.  I'd copy and paste the info, but Firefox won't allow that. 

Another quirk, I can't login to the Forum using the Edge Browser, I have to use Firefox and Firefox gives me the same problems as everyone else when I try to use it for my sweeps.  Sometimes it takes hours before I can login.  Once on, I have to click on the mouse WHEEL and select open in a new window from the choices, like fishrmn100 also suggested, to get my Lucky List to open.  Once it's open, I have to again click on the mouse wheel to get each individual sweep to open.

I use other sweep sites, and this is the only site with problems.

Foxfire upgraded the speed of their browser a couple of days ago.  Sometimes it works great; others, not so much!  Sometimes I have to close out of Firefox completely and log back in, after it seems to "stall".  Overall though, I'm pleased.  dw

I had upgraded to the new Firefox. I didn't like it, so I went back to the previous version. Everything works fine again.

So far so good today with the new version of Firefox. First time in the last few days that I didn't have a single problem. Hopefully whatever was going on has gone away.

I don't know what the difference is but I'm running Firefox 57 in windows 7 and at present have a little over 100 sweeps in my lucky list. I click on around 50 tabs and wait a couple of minutes while they load and then I can enter without any difficulty using RoboForm.  Then I'll load the same again and finish my entries for the day. Sorry you are having so many problems and wish I had an answe for you.

There has been a Microsoft Operating System update this week and that is usually the problem. 

Clear out your cookies and temporary internet files then log back in.  This fixes most of the problem.  However I will say I don't use Chrome or Firefox much and I don't see a problem currently.
