    Question After Firefox failed to load "www.google.com"

    Hi,

    When we using Firefox to open a page, e.g., "www.google.com", but for networking reason, Firefox can't load the google home page.
    Now, Firefox needs to tell the user the reason and it also defined a internal variable for storing the page loading status.

    Below lists all possible variables for this case:

    A. PageLoadingFailed = true;
    B. PageLoadFailed = true;
    C. PageFailedToLoad = true;
    D. LoadingPageFailed = true;


    I prefer to use "A", but I have a little confusion if B, C, and D are grammatically correct.

    Question 2: If I use "Success/Failure" instead of "Succeed/Failed", is that also grammatically correct for this case?

    E. PageLoadingSuccess = false;
    F. PageLoadingSucceed = false;
    G. PageLoadingFailure = true;
    H. PageLoadingFailed = true;



    Please help to confirm, thanks.

    Re: After Firefox failed to load "www.google.com"

    None of them is "grammatical". They all seem to be examples of computer language and that does not follow any grammatical rules.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm a developer. I prefer PageLoadFailed because it uses a minimum number of characters to tell us what happened.

    I think 'The page could not be loaded' is a grammatical sentence.

    Yes, it is, but that's not what fenglish wanted.
