I have occasionally the same problem but only with Firefox. Lately I've checked it quite often; when Firefox tries and tries but nothing happens, I'll switch to Chrome and the site loads immediately.

BTW, this happens not only with Seven Forums, I'll get this mysterious issue with other sites, too. But like I said, only with Firefox.

Me, too. It does not happen at home, but at work. Every other page refuses to load under FireFox, but IE works fine. I started using IE TAB in Firefox, and that works fine.

Today around 11:45AM CET (10:45AM UTC) i had a 10 minute period when I was not able to open SF. Other websites were OK. Tried FF, IE and Chrome. The SF gadget was also not working during that period. Both the SF and gadget now fine.

Is the problem here, or did someone else have this issue?
