After upgrading from 3.6 beta 4 to beta 5 it never finishes loading (the browser status line at the bottom says Done but the web page says Loading in large text), and the skimmers side panel to the right still shows customize/shortcuts for the skimmer rather than sections/top stories. Refreshing or stopping and reloading the web page has no effect. It never times out and fails. I have no problem with http://www.nytimes.com/ or other web sites. I'm using ADSL (averages 2570/420 Kbps). Opera 10.10 and IE 8.0.6001.18828 have no problem with the skimmer. Reproducible: Always
Works fine here. Do you have cookies blocked for the NYT ? If so, accept them for 'session only' at least.
I upgraded to 3.6 release candidate 1. It has the same problem. Chrome, IE and Opera continue to work okay with it. Is there any workaround other than accepting all cookies? I'm not willing to do that. This web site used to work fine using an exception. I've even added an exception for http://www.nytimes.com/timesskimmer/ though it used to work fine using the exception for http://www.nytimes.com/ . I currently have 10 cookies for nytimes.com.
