Hey - so I've been having a really infuriating problem over the last few months. Randomly, usually about once every 2 days - I won't be able to play any videos on Giantbomb, and I can't post in the forums. I can GET to the videos/forums, but clicking/functionality is gone.
The videos show the big play button (but not the progress bar) when it's freaking out like this. See screenshot below.
The forum bug is different. Basically, I just can't select the typing area (where you're reading this now). I am unable to make any kind of posts because I can't have any content in the text fields.
I've tried the following steps before, and none of them seem to fix it when it goes all bat-shit crazy on me:
1) Completely wipe browsing history (cookies, temporary files, etc) - in browsers and using Microsoft's internet options stuff
2) Turn off all adblock/antispyware/firewalls
3) CMD - ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /renew
4) Reset modem
5) Reset router
This stuff just eventually goes away, but it can take over a day, and MAN is it annoying.
Any ideas? Thanks!
