I skipped a lot of this, seemed redundant. I'm running firefox with no issues. My browser is set to delete cookie when it closes.
Interesting things here. You know bad cookies are causing the problem and wont delete them, how is that turbines fault? That's on you.
You use chrome, I assume you have you SS number painted on the side of your car, using chrome amounts to the same thing, it's google spyware and little more. I assume you don't mind google adding every site you go to, every search you make, and everything you post to a forum, to your folder at google.
IE is an out dated antique and just begs to be hacked. IE's security amounts to a screen door.
Searching has pretty much never worked for me - on Firefox (at least 2, if not 3, different versions) or IE8. Anytime I want to search the forums for something, I basically have to go search Alta Vista and hope a link comes up.
My personal experience says you can collapse exactly one section and stay bug-free. I did it with the server list.
I expanded the sections I had collapsed, and it does indeed seem to have fixed the issues I was having. I'll try collapsing the server list, as I never access the server forums, and see if it remains bug-free. Thanks again for the suggestion!
