Hey everybody and the editors too!
Lately I have been experiencing a problem with the Android Pit!!!
Quite often when I am typing a post or a reply on the forum my screen freezes, and a box pops up that says...
This screen has become unresponsive.
Then it gives me the option to close the screen or wait!
And when I leave the screen it deletes everything I have typed!
This glitch only happens on the Android Pit, it dosen't happen on any other web site I visit.
This dosen't happens all the time, but it happens enough to be annoying!
Has anyone else experienced this?
Can anyone tell me why this might be happening?

May I ask what browser you are using? I use Microsoft edge and I do have that issue with this site, but I have it on others also. It occurs mostly in yahoo mail with me, like you said just often enough to be annoying.

Hi Mark
Thank you for responding so quickly!
My internet app is Samsung 5.0.30-76
search engine is Google
And the browsers I use are MSN or Google.
For the most part I use MSN and I believe that is Microsoft.
I don't have anything to do with Yahoo!
(I refuse to open a Yahoo account just to go on the internet! )
By the way did you know that Yahoo's accounts got hacked a couple of years ago. And some 5 billion users information is currently for sale on the dark web!

Yes I do know they were hacked but have had that email for as long as I can remember. I am very careful of what I put out through email or on the web period no social media. I have separate email accounts for shopping and communicating. Yahoo is mostly just for email family, friend and a few sites like this one. I use Outlook and Gmail for everything else.

MSN is Microsoft like the Edge browser in Windows I really think that is where the problem is. I use Firefox on my tablet and phone and do not seem to have that issue with it hanging.

I think you might be right!
I have Android Pit and my other favorites programmed into my quick access page through MSN!
So... i'm going to try to access Android Pit through a differert browser and see if that makes a difference.
I'll let you know if it works!
Thanks!

Mark the pop up on Andriod Pit still happens.
And I noticed that my key board lags
Sometimes it takes a couple of seconds for the letter I type to show up.
And I noticed these problems when I respond to a android pit reply through my Gmail app!

I will bring this to Bastian attention, He may have a better insight. I am just a moderator with admin access to get rid of the spammers. I have the same issues from time to time just not recently and only on my PC not my tablet or phone.

Hi Bastian
I clear my cashed data daily!
And that pop up only appears on Android Pit!
However the problem with my key board lagging does happens on some other web sites. Not all of them just some.

I have a question. Have you noticed it happen at certain time of the day? Especially times when there is high internet traffic. That might be the cause of the lag too.

I'm using the Samsung keyboard app that came installed with in the phone.
Haven't tried any other.

The problem with that pop up has been unbelievable today!
It's Sunday morning here - afternoon in Europe.
I have tried clearing the data on my keyboard and I tried a different keyboard.
No difference!
I have installed lookout anti virus app.
It detected nothing.
You might be right about the internet congestion being the problem.
I'll try again tomorrow.

Hi Lindsay
I really do think internet congestion is the most likely cause. I am in the Philippines, we lost one of the main cables linking us to Japan. During that time I had your problem daily on this site and mail like I said before. Since it has been replaced I rarely have an issue anymore. You might check with your provider to see if they have an issue.
