Site prone to crashing on every browser. Why?

Firefox, Explorer, Google Chrome.

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. Add Safari to the mix.

    1. No crashes for me.

      Firefox on my laptop - Chrome on my phone and tablet.

        1. Hi ratgirlagogo. We're not able to reproduce this on our end in Windows 7. It looks like you're running Windows XP, which may be the culprit. We're only able to support the two most recent versions of both browsers and operating systems. For Windows, we support 7 and 8.

            FWIW I'm using XP and the latest version of Firefox on my laptop with no problems. With Adblock too.

              Yes, I'm using XP so you may be right. But is it only recently that you were only supporting 7 and 8? Because this is a recent thing.

                No, not a recent thing. One thing to check would be any browser extensions you might be running--things like AdBlock and Ghostery have been known to interfere with site functionality.

            2. The new Target ad that started yesterday crashes safari on my phone 2 out of 3 times it has rolled by this morning. Resetting my phone doesn't help.

                I haven't paid enough attention to confirm the Target ad, but something has been making it a little more "quirky" from my iPhone lately. I've had it boot me out of the browser all together a few times, I guess that's "crashing" on an iPhone.
