has anyone seen this occur? I've seen it for 20 years, literally. my only guess is that this is a consequence of server overload and it not being able to handle traffic. Either that or there is a concurrency or noise issue. True? see images. This is happened to me multiple times over the years, in all major browsers. It looks like both the CSS and JS scripts are not loading for some reason:

I'm betting "noise" in which some aspect of the page is garbled in a way that doesn't trigger the check-sums. But then again, HTTP and its HTTPS variant are designed for sessions maintained through cookies, not logins, and the transmissions are rarely repeated to correct errors. You SHOULD be able to use the RELOAD (3/4 semi-circle with arrowhead) symbol to try the same page again. That's what I usually do. But if it repeats, you should clear your browser cache before a third reload.

ummm...yeah, I know what that is. ;)

pretty much, yes I agree that it is just noise and there's nothing that can be done about it. =(

AMEX stores verification info in their server DBs, whereby most other financial institutions, especially big banks, are still doing the cookie concept. and that annoys the he$$ out of me because I dump that stuff all the time. I just made a call to Discover yesterday and asked the tier 3 manager to get the location of where they throw the cookie so I can filter out that file when dumping all of FF's junk. if she tells me, I'll know where others put it too.
