I've encountered a website that hangs when I have Network Monitor up. If there a workaround for this?

Posted

I use Network Monitor to see the URL's that websites are using internally. There's a site which seems to have been written to circumvent this functionality. If I access the site while the Network Monitor is up, the Network Monitor automatically switches to the Debugger. When I switch back to the Network Monitor, the site hangs until I close the Network Monitor and then the site proceeds. It appears that the site has a way of detecting that the Network Monitor is up. Is there a way to make it so the web page cannot detect that the Network Monitor is up and cannot take control of it?

What websites? Is Network Monitor part of the O/S or separate software? If separate software then you will have to contact their software support about their software issue affecting other software running.

Here's an example:

When I say Network Monitor I'm referring to the Network Monitor function built into Firefox. (Tools -> Web Developer -> Network)

First off that site is adware laden and those ads is probably part of the cause of the problem. I can see the ads but my setup blocks them from running.
