i had same issue and solved it by edit config.json as this
Maybe I am doing something seriously wrong, but it looks like whenever I have multiple tabs open (of same nodebb session), it hangs.
It happens consistently and I was wondering if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.
I am guessing this is caused by a websocket error. Basically the page loads to about 70% (the top loading indicator goes up to 70%) and stops. See below for screenshot.
If this is an existing bug I think it's pretty serious since I know a lot of people open multiple tabs without thinking much. In my case I would just type in my forum url whenever I want to view posts, I never bother to find the tab that's already open, and I'm sure a lot of others do so too. For these people it would appear as though the site is down, since the site never loads. Even as a developer it took me quite a while to realize that it was the websocket error that's causing this (after opening up the console)
On this forum? What browser and OS are you using?
