I have Qt tagged as one of my favorites. When I click on the Qt tag in the sidebar in order to view just the Qt questions, a page will load showing the newest questions (as determined by looking at question posting time) and then immediately reload to show older question. I can see the same load/reload behavior if I click on the "Newest" tab while viewing Qt questions. This only happens with Qt not my other favorites.

I see there are questions about this from a year or so ago ("Newest" questions sometimes appears to be stale and New questions page - caches for too long?)

Is there some setting on my end which may be causing this?

Update: Is the "Career" ad block causing this? Everytime I click on the "newest" tab the page loads with later questions and no ad block. Less than a second later the page reloads with older questions and the ad block.

The page as it first loads: (or after clicking the "newest" tab) Note the time on the first question and the absence of the Career ad block

The page a half second layer: The questions are older and completely different. Again note the question time and the appearance of the ad block. enter image description here

  • Are you on newest? Give us a screenshot. If not, click on 'newest', then next time you click on a tag, it should go to 'newest'. – Bernhard Barker Sep 5 '13 at 12:26
  • Do you happen to have Ignored Tags too? In such case, if you chose to hide questions with those tags it explain such behavior. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Sep 8 '13 at 8:40
  • @ShaWizDowArd - I am seeing this specifically on the Qt tag page, not my main SO page. – spring Sep 8 '13 at 8:50
