    I keep having trouble with this web site freezing on me so I tried installing the SMF app but it won't allow me to register. It keeps saying that my credentials are invalid. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Yes, it locks up my Kindle Fire after just a few minutes, every time. I think it's all the adds.

    Not having issues using Firefox but I use Adblock and Privacy Badger plugins so I don't get the ads.

    Not on my computer. I haven't used my other devices to access the site in quite some time, so no info there.

    This is going to sound silly, but are you sure you're typing your password in correctly? I don't know if it's true here, but at some sites, the password are case-sensitive.

    I tend to use an iPad with safari, I've got no issues. They did recently update the app (I don't have enough space for it), maybe you found the first glitch?

    I do everything on my Android phone & my passwords ‚Äčare saved so I don't have to enter them each time. The problem with that is that I can't remember what my password is so I can log into the app. I think there was a hiccup in the system because when I went to reply to Arthur, I got kicked out of SMF & it wouldn't let me log back in for an hour.

    That should be fairly easy to fix. When you try to log in to the website, there should be a link to click if you've forgotten your password.

    In fact, you can reset your password from within the app. I just checked. When you're on the login screen, "forgot password" is in the three dots in the upper right corner.

    You don't have to register on app if a member here, just use your regular login and password.

    Can you tell me what is happening when you freeze up? Also, what WIN version and what browser s/w? Chrome, Firefox, or IE11/Echo

    Hi Angie. I'm using chrome on my Android phone. Sometimes the site lags other times it's just unresponsive. Yesterday was the first time I got kicked out of the site & couldn't log back in. It's been running great ever since I was able to log back in.
    Update: after this post it started buffering but I was able to reset my password & log into the app. Thanks everyone!

    Yes, I haven't tried on mobile devices; but it slows my computer to a crawl unless I use AdBlock. I think its all of the video ads that do it. Before installing AdBlock; I would see 3 sometimes 4 video ads per page. Most of them were for Bulk Apothecary.

    I have problems with the site freezing up on me too when using my mobile. Its also a android and I use chrome. Its all the video ads that seem to do it. Wish there was just regular old ads, hate the videos.
