Default Sourceforge Problems

Has anyone had problems downloading from Sourceforge

It constantly reloads for me; w/o adblock/noscript. Does it conflict with Firefox?

Did not had any such problem. But, had other issue... like clicking on "files" link of a particular program, and the page would just not respond, even on repeated clicking, refreshing, or even on closing and opening the page again.

I can't say for sure, that problem is only with SourceForge though.

Yes, I have the same problem in Firefox but not IE8.
I'm pretty sure it's an extension that's causing the problem, but I'm too lazy to experiment.
What extensions do you have installed?

Same here, I have to download with IE8 (with images disabled of course!) or Chrome.

BetterPrivacy, CustomizeGoogle, FEBE, Ghostery (tried disabling), LastPass, NoScript/Adblock (both disabled on that site), WOT, Perspectives, RefControl, KeyScrambler (sometimes enabled).

I'm not surprised a site for code crunchers would find a way to get past one of these add-ons!

Edit:
Well, it isn't Firefox. I could download in Firefox safe mode.

Edit2:
Solved -- SourceForge doesn't like RefControl to "Forge". How silly, you have to change RefControl to "block" instead of "forge".

Thanks.
