I’m getting lots of pop-up messages asking if I want to allow this website to use up to 1.1 GB storage on my iPad.

 

I don’t, no. What is up with this, please?

I get this on MacOS and Safari. I did read it may be a bug but I can't be sure.

 

Some info on the feature: https://support.appl...i/sfri20879/mac

Maybe it's related?

 

When I'm on this forum, my computer slows down IMMENSELY.

I had warnings some months ago about prefetching. Some browsers could try and attempt to download all the topics.

 

Maybe it's related?

I'd rather think the slowdown is because of the BB software and how it's configured. When I'm looking at the source code I find about 5000 lines of CSS instructions. Having that many lines isn't an issue itself, if it's an external stylesheet. But it is all inline, and therefore every page we download gets this 5000 lines of CSS instead out of the browser cache. There are reasons why it is that way I'm sure, but this could be optimized because it is also in the interest to the website owner.

 

And some security related issues could be fixed as well. The security issues are related to the scripts. This BB was developed when IE was still used heavily. But these days cathering to these old IE browsers is getting too expensive, and insecure. IE has about a total usage of 1.4% remaining, and well, even if for this board IE user are still an issue, things could be done to serve those folks their IE content, while giving the rest of us faster and more secure content.

 

Using script libraries like jQuery 1.9.x is so not cool these days. There have been several security releases been pushed out, but since newer jQuery releases don't support ancient IE versions (IIRC version 8 still works) anymore, some website are still stuck there. All the while the jQuery team has a migration script up to 3.x. Or looking from another perspective, why is it still necessary to support Win XP? MS themselves don't do that anymore.

 

And about the rest that makes it so slow, I don't want to go into. It's about marketing.

 

EDIT;

 

As is a refresh will download 1.4 MByte of data for me.

 

And apparently, some of the inline CSS seems not to be needed, as is loaded externally... Go figure. At least it explains to me some of the inconsistent behavior I've seen when using this BB

Get asked about 1.3 GB.

I'm having this problem too on my Mac (not on iPhone or iPad, though). 

 

My solution? To use Chrome for Mac to access this forum.

‘Cause your posts run longer. ;-) (kidding!)

Thanks for pointing this out, Sophie. I started getting the message (1.1 gb) last night, with every new page I move to. Sucks. New iPhone SE, have not seen it yet on the laptop.

Edit: Per DeKnyff, I also run Chrome on laptop, Safari on iPhone.

Edit 2: Just sent a PM and noticed all use of single return key are doubling in PMs.
