Why is fluther doing this?

Asked by Neizvestnaya (22622points) April 8th, 2010

When I go to give lurve on comments then the screen blips and takes me to the top of the page, losing the place I have read up to. To keep reading other comments or to post one of my own then I have to scroll down all over again. This didn’t happen to me yesterday 4–7-10 or ever before.

That happens to me too
I’m typing and the browser completes the page load and it immediately takes me back to the top.

For some reason the javascript isn’t loading or is still being downloaded when you click the GA link.

I sent this question to Tim. Perhaps they are fiddling with the bits again. :)

Means that yahoo is taking time to load. Wait a little bit longer.

Fluther runs through yahoo? Ok. As long as it’s a temporary glitch and not a new fluther feature because it’s cutting into my sneaking-onto-fluther activities :)

it doesn’t happen on Firefox, only IE does it to me…

It did it to me at home and I run Firefox there. It’s doing it at work to me now on IE.

It happens occasionally (I’m on Firefox). I hate it when it does!

@Neizvestnaya :: It is calling this at then end of the page. It is what does all the fancy AJAX stuff. It is just a public javascript library that is provided by Yahoo. But I’m not sure why they wouldn’t host the file on Fluther’s servers. It seems like a easy way to fix a problem that gets a lot of us occasionally.

@johnpowell It’s hosted on a CDN, so most of the time it should be faster (depending on your location). Also, if you visit any yahoo site, the library should be cached.

Oh ho! The fluther love is back :) No more glitchies.
