AS I LOOK BACK AT THE EVOLUTION OF MY ISSUE IT STARTED WITH DOWNLOADING MY OWN PICTURES DURING EBAY SELLER LISTINGS. I COULD GET TO ABOUT 30 LISTINGS AND THEN "MY EBAY" WOULD LOCK UP. AT SOME POINT I NOTICED "WAITING FOR ABOUT:BLANK" IN THE LOWER LEFT CORNER WHEN CHANGING PAGES. AS OF LATE, AND RATHER SUDDENLY, EBAY IS MOVING SLOWLY SOMETIMES FROM THE BEGINNING OF MY SESSION. NOW (LAST 2 DAYS) I AM GETTING THE NOT RESPONDING WHITE BLOCK IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER AND I AM FORCED TO MANUALLY SHUT POWER OFF. PLEASE TELL ME THIS CAN BE DEALT WITH ONCE AND FOR ALL. ALSO THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH EBAY AND I FIND IT ODD!

That kind of eliminates it being strictly a eBay problem
