A head's up for all who have recently updated to the new Windoiws Explorer 11 from a previous version and are now experiencing aggravating issues with the Astronomy.com website (including this forum).
Enter the Astronomy.com URL in to the Explorer address bar and while it is attempting to load, immediately got to "Tools" (the little sprocket icon all the way at the top right) and select "compatibility view". You should see the Astronomy.com URL listed at the top. Select the appropriate button to add it to the compatibility view list. Hit OK. Your problem should be immediately solved.
Unfortunately, this won't do anything for the EXTREMELY annoying "googledoubleclickads.com" that hijacks your browser back button, but there is a fix for that in Control Panel. (I just can't remember it off the top of my head).
