    A few minutes ago, trying to get to G&G, I kept getting an error message saying something about the DNS address couldn't be found! I was wondering if that thrice-dammed hacker struck again? Luckily, here y'all are. :cool:

    Something is going on. I had to refresh setting on Firefox to get it to work. About an hour ago I could only log on using Microsoft Edge because Firefox kept telling me the site was unsafe!

    Ever since the U.N. takeover of the internet, folks have been expressing frustration with web sites, slow service, errors, etc.

    It's not just limited to G&G.

    I could access it from my Windows phone but not from Firefox on my puter...

    I finally managed to get in by doing a Google Search for "Gun and Game," and coming in through the Political subforum. Is some hacker out there jerking us around, or is the Internet being reset so pro-gun forums are inaccessible? (I will not put anything attacking America past the Useless Nations who are now responsible for overseeing the Internet since the Clown Prince of Crime abdicated American control over it to them.)

    Okay, to get Firefox to work I did this;
    Go to options in your Firefox menu, click on 'advanced' then click on 'settings' then click on 'no proxy'.

    My Firefox is working now on G&G.

    I am so glad I stuck with IE-7.
    I have seen several gun sites get smacked down by google and chrome& firefox it ain't funny.
    I just log on and go about my business until I see the thread asking what happened.

    Something is definitely wrong with the site. Firefox can not log into G&G but Microsoft Edge can after 5 tries. Microsoft got the same message at first that Firefox is getting.
    I suspect that a$$hat hacker is playing games again.

    Same with me, had a lot of trouble when the big hack happened a while back. But everything is good for me right now. I have IE-7 loves it!

    There's no hacker getting into here....I'll look into it...but I think it's just the DNS switching over. The last remaining bit of an old server

    Firefox keeps giving me the message that it has something to do with the security certificates use to get into the form. I'm on my phone right now because I cannot get in on my PC
