    Do any of you using iPads have lock-up problems with the site????

    I do a lot of stuff on my iPads. And on this site. Very convenient!

    I use a bluetooth Apple keyboard.

    Problem is: I am typing away in a post and the pad totally locks up on this site. No other site does this. Cannot do anyting....dead. Only minimizing the Safari app and shutting it down completely will the site start working.......but I loose ALL I have typed!!!! Really a PITA. No way to save anything.

    Only the Safari page with CB on it is locked up. All other pages of Safari are open and totally active.

    This has been more predominant since iOS 8 came out. NO way to retrograde back to 7. Don't you just love Apple?!?!?!?!?

    Anyone else on an iPAD seeing this? Never any lock-ups on my office desktop WIN7 PC. Or iPhone!

    Any suggestions or comments?

    I've had it give me fits before and closing the browser Iceweasel and starting again does it, never had to reboot my computer running Linux. Iceweasel is Firefox re-branded with art work for Debian.

    Nope, never. iMac, iPhone & iPad all do fine.

    My keyboard freezes once in a while but it's not specific to any site. All I have to do is close the keyboard and open it again.

    When is the last time you did a respring or reboot? If it's not jailbroken you are stuck w/ only the reboot option. As much as it sucks their OS isn't the most stable and needs to be rebooted from time to time.

    I do a COLD reboot about every 2 weeks on all my "stuff" iPhones, iPads, Win PC's, etc. Clears out the cobwebs.

    I do not jailbreak anything.

    I only come to CB through Google Chrome, never had a problem with complete lock up but have had the keyboard slow down. I don't use a Bluetooth keyboard.

    Never had an issue on this site but have on others. Might be the bluetooth connection?

    I've been contemplating this one all day. I think I figured it out. It's a government conspiracy. They realize that most of the members here are somewhat older. And they know the younger people no longer use computers and hate to be inconvenienced. They're purposely creating problems w/ this site knowing the young people will just stop browsing the forum. They never learn the knowledge that the older members possess. So the knowledge is eventually lost. This is a long term multigenerational plan and I think Apple and Soros are complicit in it

    Suspect a timeout problem between the site, Ipad & keyboard. Site's autosave doesn't work? Grandkids trashed my logitech BT keyboard,just use the on-screen one now.
    Whatever!

    These lock-ups are not timeouts. The thing happens right as I am typing. Dead. Locked-up. Nada. Zip. Have to shut down the app totally and restart.

    I am using Chrome now and so far had had no problems.

    Mabe No_1 can explain what the auto-save thing does?!?!?!? It pops up all the time in the lower right corner of a posting.

    It is a Google thing. It is saving the post you have typed. Not sure what happens if you go off the page though....
