If I did, I don't remember doing so - and can't find a place to change it now.
Regardless, a 6k long thread going back 8 years is a bit much - and since the thread has been split, I no longer have any problem loading it. No more locking up!
Consider the likelihood that anyone coming across the thread who found it to be crashing their browser just didn't bother coming back to the forum any more, also.
However, it is more likely one of my security settings than anything else. Probably one of the ones that limits the amount of memory any given foreign site is allowed to use for cookies and whatnot.
The current thread, while still really long (long enough that nobody is going to read through the whole thing, plus since the topic is pretty time-limited anyway, there's no real reason to do such a thing), is much more manageable - or maybe less UNmanageable, LOL!
