All of these issues have to be caused by your browser, as everything works normally for me. I just tested every single thing you've mentioned to be absolutely sure and yep, everything works as intended in the first tries.

Is this something that happens to you all the time or only when the site experiences problems?

That is something I actually plan to change among other things, but I'm waiting for the software update before doing any changes, because that update may ruin all the themes anyway, so there's little point in working on something that might break.

Unfortunately I don't know when the update will be performed. Currently we're running on a very outdated version (there are 3.5 years of updates awaiting to be installed) and I've mailed the system admin about this a longer while ago, but seems like he's busy, so I'm unable to give any estimate date.

I can't say since the site seems to always be experiencing some sort of issue, but then again, I'm not on everyday, so...

That said, I use Vivaldi, and I refuse to go back to Chrome, thank you no.

Seems like then, there should be someone else that can do all this in the interim, because only having one full-control sysadmin, is a problem, and this is why sites go crashing and burning. So, yeah, THIS IS A PROBLEM!!! (unless the sysadmin is waiting for the site to crash and burn that is)

Nice I always wondered if new browsers were being made.

I am doing well with Opera, but it has it's glitches recently and is a bit of a memory hog.

I'll look into that one.

 

I really feel like this site needs to move to another host. The provider is obviously not worth the time to invest in continuously emailing him to return the site back to functioning status.

A quick google search and there are others out there and some are free (although limited I'm sure), and methods to transfer everything is not hard to find either.

No idea if the site owners would entertain this, but at this point (if it was me) I would have switched, due to the poor performance seen over the last year.
