pages not loading or not showing. Just updated to v24, portable

Web pages are failing to appear, failing to load, failing to appear for more than a fraction of a second before disappearing. I just now upgraded to version 24 from previous version 23.4, PORTABLE, on Windows Vista sp2.

… problem may be starting to disappear, so not sure how consistant this problem will be. Just tried a new tab, and entered the address field for a different website, and the page loaded. Trying another one:

OK, the problem seems to be temporary.

No, in version 24.1, the problem was not temporary.
The problem now appears to have been fixed in version 24.2, and seems to no longer be happening.
