    Has anyone else had issue opening FCBO for the last week. When attempting to open website on my mobile devices it fails to launch and times out. Particularly an ipad. Even common sites I use that are notoriously slow to launch still open as usual. This site loads about one out of four tries.

    For awhile now I've had to click sometimes a few times to get it to load. Both on my PC and phone. Other times it loads right away.

    Haven't had a problem opening the site but sometimes it takes a while to post a reply.

    I have had this problem a lot for quite sometime. Thought it was due to my internet service.

    I havent had any issues -- But I'll look into this with our server techs to see if there is some reason this could be happening.

    me too. Sometimes, opening FBBO in the browser first helps open FCBO.

    using iPad with safari.

    I thought is was perhaps my aging ipad. Then thought it could be my wifi or i.p. but it occurs with any public wifi I use also. It seems to open after going to another site first but that might just be me.

    I have problems with Joeys sites. FABO is great. FBBO a little slow. FCBO slow. FEBO very slow. FTO Almost never. This is from my I phone. I talked to a moderator and he says they all have the same set up and should all be the same. Not for me. Kim

    I blame it on Amazon Prime day. Even at work this week it takes time to load many web based sites. The whole internet seems slow right now.

    I had thought about that. But then the other dozen or so sites I use each day load fine.

    For the past week or so, when I'd click on my Favorites Bar for FCBO, it'd try to open, then quickly report "Can't Open that page". A second of two later, the page would open, as normal. Just about the time I was going to start over.

    Windows 10-S laptop with wi-fi hotspot.

    For me its the e body site. Sometimes it just like the rest and other times it seems like snail mail would be faster.

    have any of you checked on a different computer and different network?

    Any idea on when this started happening?

    Clean out your cache and do a cold reboot.

    We did some server updates and tweaked a few things - any better?

    Gotta remember that most of the kids over the age of 5 are doing school over the intrawebs right now. I'll bet a lot of bandwidth is getting used up.

    Everything is a little slower.
