This could be a router issue. Poorly performing routers often throw away or drop connections.
This problem is caused by the CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) not loading properly. While this is possibly (though VERY unlikely) a server-side issue with HubPages, it is usually a router issue.
Cheap routers have slower processors, and while the cute young geek in your local neighborhood or the GeekSquad representative may tell you that they're all the same and that the higher priced routers are a scam. This is not true.
If you have more than 1 connected device to a router that you paid less than $40 for, you will most definitely have connection issues, especially with browsers like Chrome and Firefox that open up more simultaneous connections than Internet Explorer.
There is likely no problems with your browser as others have suggested. This is not true, and if it was the case, it would be a critical bug that would have been fixed before it hit your desktop (or you would see a patch in days).
