I've got a problem - stops loading sometimes.

I'm mostly using Chrome on Windows Vista. When this problem appears, I still can access it in other domains (say, or; accessing in Chrome's anonymous mode also works. Some things (like openID authentification or search in Chrome) are tied to, though, so it's still annoying.

Subdomains (like can be accessed, while pages within domain (like cannot.

Ping and tracert show that the server is accessible. Trying to get to in Firefox works sometimes, but not 100% of the time.

The problem can disappear by itself after some time (like a few hours). Closing and reopening browser also helps, so I guess it's something browser-related. Any ideas?

I have just had this problem, so I reloaded Chrome (needed Google's openID to log in to SU) and now it's gone. It's not regular, though - sometimes it doesn't appear for days, and I couldn't find any reason for that so far.

Have you tried re-installing chrome? – soandos Nov 25 '11 at 19:27
No. Will keep it in mind if no other way shows up. Thanks for advice! – egor83 Nov 25 '11 at 19:34
But I sometimes experience this problem in Firefox as well, so it's beyond just Chrome. – egor83 Nov 25 '11 at 19:42
Does it happen across all user profiles? – soandos Nov 25 '11 at 20:27
This seems like a simple DNS problem. Check that your hosts file is clean, and find out if your DNS cache needs updating (or even a change of DNS servers). – user3463 Nov 25 '11 at 22:26

Try re-installing Google Chrome
