Seems like, as has already been stated, it is a resource issue (ram or cpu) on your end.
What you can try is to use a separate browser for this site and maybe one or two others where you never, or hardly ever, clear out your cache...wait
for the page to fully load and then you will get to star and flag.
Ideally, we should be able to more easily select what sites to omit from clearing the cache since often times you are just downloading the same crap
that you cleared out. Guess you already considered your connection speed and it is commensurate with ISDN or cable modem right? My computer is a first
generation MAC and is 10 years old has with 2 gigs of ram, so i can see easily when the problem is system related and YES that is when the stars wont
take. Still all i have to do is close other tabs and usually, since my old system is a first generation multithreaded system usually wont crash my
whole system. Then again, if necessary, i need to run a memory cleaner program and it solves memory issues. Since you have plenty of memory and on
windows guess this is not helping much.
Below is more system wide things to look for and may find things that should or you do not want to run, although you probably already know this but
will post it anyway:
Some find this to be fun, but some may find it to be arduous - hit ctrl-alt-delete and look for things you can kill, ideally click start - run -
msconfig and go to start up and deselect items you feel are not necessary to run at startup. Find "services" by right click and "manage" look for
culprits there too. All this will find things that you dont want - like "browser helpers", tool bars etc. Maybe you have done all that already though
so just posting mainly for general info as well. Do all that a few times and make sure they dont persist.
But then, honestly try using a browser exclusively for this site, could be any one of the three normally used, poke around so the avatars and whatever
else gets downloaded so it stays in the browser cache until something gets changed like graphics etc. Then once you click on a thread you may want to
flag and star, wait for it to fully load, DONT refresh the page, once the loading icon stops twirling click a star, again only one time, wait for it
to turn green. Do this a few times and see if it helps.
