When I post messages on this and other forums on the Internet it takes like forever for them to be submitted. The same thing happens to other kinds of forms that you can fill out on the Internet. Further the autocomplete function in Internet explorer does not work althoug it is on. Another strange thing is that the function in this forum that marks new posts with a pink folder and old posts with a yellow folder does not work. Every time I visit this site, the folders are all pink! Everything else works as normal. What can have happened?

Sounds like you need to empty your Temporary Internet Files and your History folders(If you are using IE). Same thing applies for Netscape.

Yeah, as Bigbot said, first thing to try is cleaning the cache out. I had a similar problem a month back on someones PC.

Let us know how you go dude.

if your still having problems, like all the folders being pink, you may need to clear the cookies as well.
