Also had something weird with page background colours a little while ago, though that seems okay again. Not sure if it was a GZ issue. Anyway, I can't get +1 to work. Not complaining, just reporting.

Are you running any privacy plug-ins or script blocking plug-ins on your browser?

working for me.

 

 

 

ages back i did get weird things were it would just go "working please wait" and not progress further.

 

reloading fixed that - to be clear i haven't had it for a few months now since then except when jumping between proxy nodes which is to be expected.

I have been having some other weird things with my browser today so not sure what is going on. I just hope it isn't the damned graphics card again. I am on another machine at the moment but will check again after dinner.

Just tried again on the desktop. I keep getting refresh the page and try again. No problem on the laptop. ^F5 does nothing. No plugins that I am aware of. UBlock is installed but deactivated for GZ.

It has to be something at my end. Getting very tired of this. Will look at it again tomorrow.

Very frustrating. I'm trying to run some tests with different browsers but I keep getting a message that I'm rate limited and banned from logging in. I know there is a purpose for this, but it makes it really difficult to try to diagnose my issue. 

 

I did manage to log in on one other Chrome browser, and the +1 worked fine on that from the same computer. Whatever is causing this issue is specific to the browser I am using, which is Comodo Dragon. I made the big mistake of going against my principles and allowing it to update. I should have known better. 

 

I assume there is a script that performs the +1 function. Every time I try it, I get a message to refresh the page and try again. Is there any way to diagnose this?

Installed Comodo Dragon and +1 works just fine.

 

The rate limit is over five minutes. Just log from one browser, wait five minutes and login from another browser.

 

Yes, there's a good reason - bots, blocking fake logins from stolen credentials, and more. So this won't change.

Thanks for that. Something with the update seems to have gone wrong for me. Nothing new there.

 

I get the reason for the rate limit. Knowing how it works helps. I will try again later.

I hate these kinds of things. I spent all morning down the rabbit hole and I could not straighten this stupid thing out. I reinstalled Dragon and managed to get the +1 working, but then it wouldn't remember my login! I finally gave up and just restored from the backup. Everything working again. @Freitasm: I forgot to thank you for your trouble installing Dragon to check this out. I appreciate it.
