Why do I repeatedly have issues when loading Huffingtonpost page? Page either fails to load, or loads briefly but reset as it continues. Followed all the recommendations on this help site to no avail.

Posted

Each time I attempt to read news on Huffington Post, I run into a problem: stays in "connecting" mode and times out, begins to connect, (where tab says Huffington Post) but times out, or I get to front page and before it completely loads, it times out. When I am lucky enough to finally get it loaded, I'll click on a story and I amback to square one. I followed as best as I could, the recommendations suggested on this site. No luck. Still an issue.
