GEI Constantly reloading in firefox

Recommended Posts

ok, i got p'd off with firefox never stopping loading GEI.

 

So, here is a nice solution. What is happening is that the website tries to load an image from

"usera.imagecave.com"

 

To stop this happening,

 

if you are on OSX:

===================

1//

open Terminal as root. To do so, type:

sudo pico /etc/hosts

(you will need a root password to do this)

 

2//

add a line at the bottom:

127.0.0.1 usera.imagecave.com

(note I typed a TAB after 127.0.0.1, not spaces)

 

3//

Type CTRL-O to save it.

 

4//

Flush your DNS cache:

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

 

5//

Restart firefox/safari/whatever.

 

Now, no reloading :)

 

All covered here:

In windows (untested,- gave up MS ages ago)

============================================

Be logged in as a privileged user.

 

Open a DOS command window, type:

notepad C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

 

Put the following line in hosts:

127.0.0.1 usera.imagecave.com

 

File > Save.

My work firewall also raises a red flag about loading data from "crookedmonkey.com". I'd really like to avoid this otherwise GEI will get blocked once the IT guys notice this in their logs.

Thanks for that. I finally blocked hxxxx//usera.imagecave.com from within Opera as this is what I mostly use.
