I cannot reproduce this issue myself (using Firefox ESR).
This is probably best expressed as a bug report against the
manpages.debian.org pseudo-package instead.
You will likely need some debugging information before filing the bug:
Does the same issue happen if you use a different web browser.
This morning the problem does not appear with either this machine using
SeaMonkey nor a different machine having Firefox ESR. It was present for
several hours yesterday.
IIRC I have seen the problem on other man-pages.
Are there web developer tools for your browser, and if so what does
the network debugger say is happening with those requests.
Although I've had a home computer for over 40 years I've had no contact
with developer tools. What would be the appropriate question to ask on
the SeaMonkey mailing list?
are no tools, perhaps use Wireshark to figure out where the browser is
trying to connect to.
Is Wireshark an appropriate tool for a newbie user who doesn't see much
network analysis in the future?
