    Chrome issue - Reddit not loading properly because of Ad-Aware

    So it seems that after Reddit's downtime today/tonight, the site is refusing to load properly in Chrome. As in...it appears all broken and messed up, like the HTML isn't loading properly, so only text is loading; no images or formatting or anything. It seems to be only affecting Chrome and FireFox, IE still loads Reddit fine. I tried disabling all addons; nothing. Incognito window; nothing. Rebooting finally got Reddit to load properly....for about ten minutes. Then it went back to being broken again.

    AFTER messing with some settings in Ad-Aware...it seems that disabling Ad-Aware's "Safe Browsing" thing makes Reddit work again. If I re-enable it, Reddit will work for another 10 minutes or so, then go back to being broken. What the hell, Ad-Aware?

    Do I even need this? I know not to do stupid things on the internet, and I've already got NotScripts and Chrome's bad-URL detector as a bit of defense. Either that, or redirect me to how to add exceptions to Ad Aware's Safe Browsing, because I sure as hell can't find where it is...

    I am experiencing the same problem. Reddit's HTML or Java seems to be disabled and is making all of reddit impossible to navigate.

    I use ad-aware too, but I was unable to locate this "Safe Browsing thing" that you speak of.
    Can you give me more specific instructions on how to remove it or turn it off?

    Well, I upgraded to the most recent Ad-Aware version, and it's just a simple on/off switch on the main window. You can't miss it.
