A problem with links on WS
I can't figure out what's going on with links and me. A while ago, probably after some update or another, I started getting trouble opening links on WS. When I click a link that points to an outside site, what usually happens is that I get redirected on this page http://www.websleuths.com/forums/1
and the error message says
The requested URL /forums/1 was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
At first I figured that they were broken links but other people seemed to be able to use them and then I realized that the same links work fine for me as well if I click them again immediately after getting the odd error message.
I don't understand what's going on. I haven't encountered similar problems elsewhere. I'm a Firefox user if it helps.

supply us with some of those links and there is probably a good explanation. sometimes when people copy links form other posts they copy what is in the post itself. Often that is not the complete link because it is just a copy of an abbreviated link.

The last time it happened with the link in this post, which is fine. It looks random to me.

I am still having this problem on Firefox, not if I use Internet Explorer. Now it doesn't always help to reclick the link but the links work fine if I right click and open in a different window. Any idea what's causing it?
