I'm having problems with Web pages loading incompletely and improperly. It's a crapshoot as to when I'll experience these problems. Sometimes the pages load fine, other times not. What's troubling is that sometimes it looks like I'm losing my Internet connection when the pages won't load at all (and I get the Firefox equivalent of a 404 message). When that happens, I can't even retrieve my e-mail --Outlook times out. Then a minute later, everything will be fine. -- Betty Nakamoto
Firefox 1.5 has caused me to use IE6 for many more Web sites. With Firefox, many pages just don't open and I don't have the time to figure out why. Some pages are extremely slow to load. --Ted Gates
I'm getting 'Page not found' or 'Site not available' [sic] messages at least 15-20 times more frequently than ever before -- which is especially vexing since I am often simply going from page to page on the exact same site at the time! -- Scott Thompson
It doesn't render many pages correctly, particularly on The Motley Fool, where I use it the most. Some links don't show; text is not formatted properly (runs off the screen). Once IE comes out with tabbed browsing I may drop it. -- Paul Knudsen
Interestingly, the page-compatibility issues aren't consistent. Of the many Web pages that readers reported having problems displaying in Firefox 1.5, we haven't been able to reproduce a single one. They all work for us. At the same time, we have also had trouble with specific pages that won't load properly or at all. The problem may have nothing at all to do with Web-page rendering, and more to do with some intermittent overall aspect of program reliability, such as caching issues.
