    You're not the only one. It's been happening to me for the past month. I thought it was just something wrong with my computer or Firefox.

    ....mmhh....? What browser, and what's the name of the XML files?
    EDIT: Yes, I thought there was a browser error, mostly on Mac computers, but can't find the news item right now.
    EDIT: Found the news, but seems to be not related.

    I'm using Firefox on a Windows 10 computer. I don't have any of the files saved, but the names are short and made up of random numbers and letters.

    They used to use random numbers and letters but now it's just blank.

    Okay, strange.
    I moved this to its own thread now, might be warranted.
    Is anyone else affected?

    Seems that when this happens, the Ads on the top of the page don't load.
    So, something with the Ad service?

    I've just had it happen. Two files.
    ccGVGvaY.htm
    P4PhgBkY.htm
    Both are blank and have a size of 0 KB.
