it may be that the website you are using has stopped responding or has timed out. do you have this problem with other sites too? another possible cause is a slow internet connection.

Try restarting your internet router. Clear your browser's history and cookies by going to tools-options-privacy and click on "clear your recent history" then "clear now". click on "remove individual cookies" then "remove all cookies"

then restart your browser.

Hope this helps!
