D'oh! Error 503
Topic: D'oh! Error 503
For the last month or so I've received this same error that has already been reported by others. When I looked for topics related to this, it appears that the ones listed are assigned a status of "Resolved". I can verify that this issue is NOT resolved. I happens to me every day, including today (12-Jul-2022).
I open IMDB and search for a movie or a TV Series. Usually, at first, the page will display properly right away. I can continue to search for other movies or TV Series until eventually I will get the following error message:
We're sorry, something went wrong.
Please try again...wait...wait...yep, try reload/refresh now.
But if you are seeing this again, please report it here.
Please explain which page you were at and where on it that you clicked
Then I have to wait some period of time before the site will respond properly again. But then after a few more searches, the same error will be displayed.
There is no one single page that this happens on - it occurs whether searching for a Movie, a TV show, even when I click on a link within a page (such as the Awards or the Tagline) and it has even occurred when I click the Back button to go to a page that I just was viewing.
It's almost as though the server has been programmed to limit the number of page requests per time period.
Even though the other threads I've reviewed have been closed as "Resolved" this continues to happen.
I have reviewed the recommended page:
This in not at all useful information.
I have no ad blockers in place.
I have disabled all plugins and the problem still returns. (IMDB worked perfectly fine with my current set of plugins until just recently, so it appears it is NOT related to a plugin.)
This happens on all the browsers I have used: Firefox, Chrome, and Edge. (I have installed the most current versions of these browsers, and I always keep them up-to-date.)
I have two desktop PCs using Windows 10 (again, up to date) and this occurs on each of them. Interestingly, if I get the error on one of the PCs, and I immediately go to the other PC to see if I can pull up the page, I get the error right away without having a few pages served properly first.
I have a laptop also with up-to-date Windows 10 and I get the same issue.
I access IMDB with my phone and I never have received this error. (Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Android v12, IMDB app v8.5.7)
Please fix this. I prefer to use IMDB, but this is frustrating and I am starting to gravitate to other sites that provide the same information but without the hassles.
