Thats exactly what it seems like. Like something is trying to run in the background and IE is blocking it.

what changed on the forum in the last day?
i am now getting redirect pages while posting(it thanks me for posting) in half the sections(didn't do it in the blog section, or the first 1-2 posts)--very annoying, i use the back button to go back to the new posts search, and have to sift through 3 pages instead of 2, and i also get a redirect while searching for new posts("the forum will display your search soon" or something like that). also, the forum is attempting to double-post many of the times i post now--i get the error that "the forum requires you to wait 30 seconds between posts. so far, i've made something like 5-6 posts today, and it's happened at least 3 times..
and i only click once on the 'post reply' button, unless it 404's....
edit: while posting this, the forum tried double posting again....
Yep, I have noticed it also needs to clicks to edit or quote a post.
I suspect someones been playing.
I thought it was just me! I am having the same issue that soundman98 is having, now that I am using FireFox so I wasnt annoyed with the different set of issues I was getting with IE8. Now though, this stuff is starting.

double edit-- 4 more posts since my last post in this thread, and the forum tried double posting every single one, and probably this one too...
edit-- it didn't do it for this one, but i suspect that was because it was posted through the advanced mode. instead, i got the "thanks for posting, you are now getting redirected to your post" redirect page....
is it too late to go back to the old forum software?!?:tape2:
Also when you do a multi-quote and then later try to do a reply with quote, it will load previos posts that you multi-posted, plus the one your trying to replay to.
Phew - thanks! I disabled a few startups including java. I was gonna start tracing...
(Furyfox701, NoScript215, windows2k...)
PS - plus double posting.
PS - plus doub....
I'm getting fun errors too!
Double posting also means Double emails when you are logged in a subscribed to a thread.
Especially when someone keeps 'testing'
sadly, we have bigger problems to deal with first. Though I couldn't get double post to occur. Gonna get its more windows behavior SIGH
