in thread Scraping using WWW::Mechanize::Firefox

Now that tobyink has -- in effect, :-) -- vouched for that site and specific address, I've been trying to get there too.

That raises a new issue: when I connected (and it's an LDS geneaology site, for all concerned) the query ran a very long time -- more than 3 minutes of rotating arrow without any timeout or other informational message -- each of three times I tried to follow it.

I don't have superfast DSL, but it's not that slow...and so I wonder if the problem may be in the length of the (multiply-compounded) query or in the OP's connection.

    I've updated the code. Now I'm stuck in a different loop as I noted. On my connection and computer, it takes less then 10 seconds to get the site loaded. It was probably less than 2.5 secs. However, at the moment, perl is going through that infinite loop of printing sleep for way more than at least 1 minute.
