Why is TVF becoming such an unusable website?

Quite funny reading some of the posts on this thread.

Gawd i thought i was the cranky old b++ger but some on here are worse than me.

Stop with your moaning you miserable bar stewards, Thai visa is a damn good site, some things not perfect, but what is?

So the ads are a bit annoying, they need money coming in to survive, mods are a necessary evil, on other sites little or no moderation, some of the posts are shocking.

STOP sucking up. POTY has a term limit of one term. You've had your 15 minutes of fame (for a year).

The OP should change his browser to Firefox. That resolved the problem for me.

Brave browser did the same = no adverts

It's an intermittent problem, and using the right mouse button doesn't work for me.

Thanks anyway.

 

I've tried a different mouse that I know works perfectly, but not the mouse.

When I PM someone, I don't have a problem. Only on the forum page with all the things we can't discuss.

 

I just remembered that I have an old small laptop that was in fashion before tablets got invented. Don't remember what they were called but same size screen as a tablet. I'll see if I can find it and if it still works if it makes any difference.

Hopefully be able to get back on that next week.

Hi,

back again after the weekend. I did find the notebook and a desktop screen with connections. Had it all set up to find out the answer, but it won't connect to any site, including this, other than google. Old machine not used for years, and only internet explorer, but can't connect to firefox to download that browser.

Sooooo, no wiser than last week. 

I'll take the machine to my friendly repair guy and see what he can come up with.

 

Obviously I'm not the only one with issues, as over 7,000 looks.

 

Nothing has changed re usability though. Can't even highlight text.

From some of the posts. It doers seem as though the site doesn't work very well with anything but desktop computers.

Certainly the big pop up VDO ads still obstructing the page. Is anyone from tech support listening?

QUOTE: Adblock Plus (free) works fine with Firefox

Not for me.

PLEASE STOP posting about adblockers. If it keeps on the thread will be closed. Read the forum rules, and I even posted that before.

I don't think the browser is his problem, I run Win10 and chrome and don't have any problems with the cursor jumping. it seems to me that there is probably something wrong with his machine, perhaps the touch pad. Perhaps he either needs to decrease or increase the cursor speed, or play around with touchpad preferences.

But those new pop ups are very annoying, I constantly have to close them because they cover functionality. It is making TVF very difficult to use.

"If you have problems with the cursor jumping around while you are typing, you are probably resting your hand on the touchpad, or accidentally touching it, or you have a defective/damaged touchpad or touchscreen. ... Your Chromebook cannot adjust for poor typing methods. "

https://support.google.com/chromebook/thread/9418643?hl=en

I don't use the touchpad. I use a mouse. Tried different mouse too.

I hear what you are saying about the machine, but it doesn't happen with other forums I use, which is why I think it's TVF.

I did bring a different machine to try, but that doesn't work at all. I might be able to find another machine again, but not available right now.

Re the pop ups blocking your view, do you use a small screen, or a large one? I'm using a tablet. Apparently mobile phones are worse.

It has just occurred to me that I don't remember the problems I have detailed in my OP happening before the pop up VDOs started, ergo, it would seem to me that it is possible that the pop up VDOs ARE the cause of the problems.

 

 That doesn't include the speed of this forum, about which I have been complaining on this sub forum for years, but nothing changes.

Did you try posting this problem at "Internet, computers, communication, technology " I am not the most computer savvy person. there was a time that I was, I go back to CPM systems and after that MS. Dos but I did not keep up with it and after a while I fell behind, today's systems are way too complex. 

 I honestly don't have a cursor problem but I run a late generation machine that has a lot of computing power. But if I don't shut down my machine for a few days, my cursor starts freezing,  then I clean my "browsing history " and everything is good again. it seems that every time something new opens it stores cookies in your system and after a while it might become too much for your processor,  TVF is certainly a very busy website.

If I understand if correctly, everytime you open something your computer allocates a certain amount of RAM to it, but when you shut it down it does not give you all the Ram back. after a while your machine might be short on RAM allocation.

I am not the best person to talk to about that, that's why I suggest you take this to the computer forum. Might even be an Internet connection issue. Certainly TVF being as heavy as it is does not help.

Just checked my browsing history. Set to clear whenever I close the internet. 

Don't have the same ( or any ) problems on a different forum.

I hear what you say about TVF being a "heavy" forum, but it never used to be a difficult to use site. Since then they have increased the things we may not discuss many times over, added many sub forums, etc etc etc.

Just the emojis are a case in point. They used to have a fraction of the ones they have now, and worked perfectly. Now takes up to 5 minutes to add one.

It might very well be.

It could be that every time one of this pop ups comes it loads a cookie or something else on your computer.

I Shutdown my laptop this morning and restarted it , so hopefully it would had reset my Ram issue, all day I haven't done anything with my lop top other than go on TVF , just a couple of minutes I went to clear my browsing data, and it was taking too long, I had could not even cancel out of the process,

I just noticed that my computer wasn't set to delete cookies so I did that, and it does seem to have made a difference to the cursor use and highlighting text.

Time will tell, but you may have sorted one of my problems, so thanks for that. Hope it is that simple.

Cookies are the curse of the internet. track us and fill up the computer with <deleted>.

Unfortunately, when I delete cookies I have to sign in again on T VF.
