Does anyone else get this...

I don't know who's fault this is but I'm starting to suspect my o2 dongle. I have mobile broadband for Mac (pay&go) usually I never have any troubles but when I visit: www.reed.co.uk  things don't work as they should, pages don't finish loading -most annoyingly the button that says 'apply now' (it's a job site) is just a spinning gear saying please wait. I contacted the website and they gave the usual advice about emptying the cache and enabling cookies and java, all of which I have done but still the same problem. The reason I'm suspecting the dongle/connection is that the webpage doesn't work properly on Firefox or Safari. Does anyone get a spinning gear on reed.co.uk? or any ideas about a fix?

Many thanks...

Thank you for checking for me Ian. The most annoying thing is, of course, that the 'apply now' button is the most vital button on the entire page.

 

I did manage to solve the problem in the end though thanks to reading this thread about java script being disabled by o2 mobile broadband and how to get around it. A plug-in for Firefox called 'Modify Headers' can enable problem script to fully load (or stream) as well as decompressing images - use it sparingly though unless you don't mind paying those pricy o2 data tariffs. Cheers!

I get the same result re the 'spinning gear' for the apply now button, but otherwise the site loads quite quickly and accurately. I'm using IE9 as my browser.
