    Hi, i'm on a proxy server at uni and have found that facebook home, my ebay (which i use from bookmarks) often require 5-10 refreshes to actually load. When it doesnt work, the URL is written in the tab and the whole screen is blank.

    On Vista using firefox.

    Anything I can do? Really annoying for forms, etc since sometimes not working first time ruins everything.
