Long thread locking up my browser

There's a thread entitled "What are you baking today?"

What are you baking today? - Page 599 - Discuss Cooking - Cooking Forums

Every time I try to load, it starts crashing scripts left and right. The pages on this site are normally pretty slow to load, but this is totally a gone goose. Once I try to load that page, which has nearly 6k postings, it locks my browser up (FireFox ESR) and the only way out is to kill it with the Task Manager.

I am running Win7.

Is there any chance someone could just lock that thread and start a new one? 6k postings is an awful lot .... surely a new thread is warranted by now.

I have the same FF ESR and Win 7, no problems here and it loads fast. Could be your connection speed.

There are quite a few security updates available for FF ESR. Do you have them installed?

I think this is a good idea actually... 6 K is too long and it might be more interesting to see this topic by year. Standby...

KB, you can limit the number of posts shows on a page. Click User CP and under Edit Options, at the bottom of the page, select how many posts to show. hth.

I am running FF 24.0 on a PC/Win7. I have no such issues. ESR stands for Extended Support Release.

From the Mozilla website:
"Who is it for?

Firefox ESR is intended for groups who deploy and maintain the desktop environment in large organizations such as universities and other schools, county or city governments and businesses.
Who is it not for?

Individual users who always want the latest features, performance enhancements and technologies in their browser without waiting for them to become available in ESR several development cycles later._

Thanks Hoot! I appreciate your digging that up for me. No I don't feel like I'm missing out on some cool stuff that others have.

So, every thread that's a year old gets closed and a new one started in its place now?
Will we be able to access the old thread, or will it be linked from the new thread in case we want to reference something?
