Still getting this sometimes when clicking the time of the last post. I think JC said he thought he knew what the problem might be?
found this on the bottom of the second page. rest assured this is NOT fixed yet.
Every morning, after the obligatory, annoying rigmarole of logging on, I go to my (ex)favourite forum and click on "Last Post".
Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgh! Bloody 404 again!
Yup I get these to. Next time it happens try to notice if the browser has stopped loading everything on the page ? I've noticed (that's when I'm paying attention only) when it happens to me; It's usually because I haven't waited for all the page elements to finish loading.
yes it's finished loading. it happens every browser restart. close your browser and try it.
Funny, and i hope i've not spoken too soon... but so far have never got the 404. Perhaps, my way of using the forums is different... <shrug> But now, fingers crossed!
I can reproduce this when starting from a closed browser.
Launch the browser
Paste in the thread URL http://forums.adobe.com/thread/419097?tstart=0
Click on Last Post
As I think I guessed at earlier (http://forums.adobe.com/message/1966062#1966062), the URL is wrong. It has a session ID stuffed into the middle of it:
The correct URL should be http://forums.adobe.com/message/2007359?tstart=0#2007359
I will escalate this one again.
This morning, when I absent-mindedly clicked on a "last post" link after firing up the browser — I didn't get the 404 error!
Has it been fixed at last?
And how about a progress report ?
I keep looking in this forum's FAQ but there's nothing new there.
no. still happening.
It’s similar, but different john. Maybe it’s a glitch in the Matrix. New pattern, new problems. Fine, I’ll just shut up then ;^)
For me, too.
mmmmm........ not me. Workie just fine. Maybe it is possessed.
I got some 404s without the usual green favicons, something has changed.
I have one browser window that showed me as not being logged in.
I clicked on a "last post" link and got the 404 with the green/white icon.
I then clicked the "back" button, refreshed the page, clicked on the "last post" link again and I was good to go.
I restarted my computer, launched a browser, went to 'last post' - because I keep forgetting about this problem - got the usual 404, did a refresh. Same as usual.
No change; still getting it here.
Tried again this morning.
Cold start for computer – start Firefox – go to bookmarked PS Windows page – click on "Last Post" – no error!
The green favicons are back, Jive is consistent in it's inconsistency.
Sure am getting tired of these 404 errors.
me too ... got them again today.
found this down on page 4... lest anyone forget, yes. this is STILL a daily occurance.

Strange... but touch wood... has never happened to me yet. <shrug> Posted my workflow – or should one call it view/read flow – in a thread... As i said then (and maybe in other posts as well), the slowness, the posts vanishing, the login problems, etc., etc., all happen... but 404... no.
System: XP SP3
Browser: FF. Used to be the latest update/upgrade then, now on 3.0.11 and 3.5.
No scripts, CSS tweaks or hacks running vis-a-vis these forums. Only have various FF add-ons.
only happens on restarts jay.do you have an adobe forum set to open on startup? that's one thing.if not, add this forum's opening page to your "home" bookmarks so that it opens in a new tab every time you restart the browser (or hit the "Home" icon): http://forums.adobe.com/community/general/forum_comments
make sure you're logged in (so you don't get bit by the logout bug). close down firefox. make SURE it's closed (task mgr). restart firefox. in the "Last Post" column, click on any message's last post timestamp, as shown:
bang 404 error, and favicon is some wierd green blobby thing.
Dave, repeating workflow:
1. Open FF... type ad.. drop down highlights adobeforums.com (sometimes i type it all in).
2. If i need to, login, else open forums i want in new tabs.
3. Go to Forums (opened) in the tabs, scroll through topics that interest me and open in (mutiple) new tabs. (This could be one forums or several forums but usually one.)
4. Read through and answer as appropriate. Close windows/tabs as i finish.
Aside: Often / usually / use the "Last post" link... and then scroll... sometimes just scroll (usually for shorter threads).
5. Refresh the forum to update on any new topics while i was reading and answering the others.
6. Move on to new forum...
Hope the above is of some help.404? To date – not got it.
Note: I do not use links / favourites / etc.
What i regret and miss are:
1/ The speed of the earlier forums
2/ The ability to go to the last read message... whether it was a day or a year ago
3/ The ease of posting
4/ Most important: The far more relaxed ambience
5/ The NNTP...
"When will they ever learn...."
type ad.. drop down highlights adobeforums.com (sometimes i type it all in).
the bug only seems to happen in a home bookmarked page 1st time in, as i said. i know how to avoid it. i'm just reporting it as still not fixed.
What i regret and miss are:
yes. me too. but this thread is about the 404 errors.
