recently the NYT website began freezing--what to do?
I am a subscriber, and visit the NYT website 3-4 times a day. It has recently begun freezing up after I've been on the site, just now after reading an article, looking at the comments, and then going back to the home page--that's when the freeze happened. I suspect an ad script as it is the ads that keep changing. How can I diagnose this?
