There's a big delay, and I get gateway 504 error, or more often this message,




"This page is not available at the moment

Browser content blocking cannot possibly cause a 504 error, that's a server-side error.




I'd generally say that MSN was just having issues when you visited, but it's also possible that your antivirus had some kind of awful "web shield" or whatever which was interfering by acting as a proxy. If you do have something like that, turn it off - they don't protect from anything useful, and tend to break stuff.
