Aside from slow drawing of pages sometimes, the newest Firefox revision causes a problem of going back and forth between the compromise skin and Fake Vector (at least). If I am in Fake Vector and sign out, then try to go back to a page (back button) that was viewed earlier in Fake Vector, I get an error message: that's it. This behavior did not happen before. To this amateur, the page has the same name, so what's the diff? Apparently, something. Now if I call up a saved page, it loads just fine in either compromise skin or Fake Vector.

I would like to blame Tweaker, but this was happening before it came on the scene. We'll just have to wait for Firefox to work out its problems in a new release. So this is a heads up to anyone else using that browser. It isn't Uncyclopedia's doing. --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 10:31, September 12, 2018 (UTC)

Have you tried Chrome? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:32, September 12, 2018 (UTC)
If you mean "does this problem appear with Chrome?", it does not. Otherwise, that's it, just switch browsers. I use Chrome often enough to access Uncyclopedia but Chrome is definitely bloated nowadays and therefore quite a bit slower. It can be crap in handling typical modern-style sites heavy in images or video. Firefox was speedy before the last couple of updates. --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 22:11, September 12, 2018 (UTC)
Late reply. I'm currently running Firefox 62.0 on two computers and was able to reproduce this on both. When I log out and go back to an earlier page, it says "The page isn't redirecting properly", though not always for some reason. I never noticed before because I almost never log out. I have no idea what causes it, unfortunately, so I can't help you. I had to retype this because I forgot I was logged out and my experimenting made the page refuse to save. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 07:40 23 September 2018
