i'm experiencing some trouble in this forum. long story short, the PC is slooooow. terribly slooow - even the *knock-knock* of ICQ takes twice as long to play. once i close firefox, everything is back to normal.
i double checked on some other phpbb boards, no trouble there.
I'm using Firefox and everything's working perfectly, I don't see where the source of your trouble is coming from if you are accusing Firefox.
You did mention your computer was too slow? I think if you can use Firefox fine on other sites your computer speed shouldn't be affecting this site cause it doesn't take a super computer to run Firefox.
the problem is FFrelated, when i minimize FF everything is back to normal.
even closing firefox took over a minute with the forum open.
however now that i disabled all of my addons it works perfectly. so i'll go through them one by one and see which one causes the problem
It's the flash ads thats causeing it I bet, disable images.
wouldn't that be kind of cheating?
i think frihosts needs every banner we see, thats why bannerblockers are stricktly forbidden....
plus, i hve been to sites with dozens of flashbanners and stuf, never had problems. so what's so different here?
I doubt it has anything to do with firefox...
It works fine for me as with any other sites I been.
Maybe you want to check with your isp...
I use firefox and i have no probs but it sometimes slows up on forums. If you download the latest version and open up your bandwith to unlimited it will work much better. Now with bandwidth it depends on who your internet provider is but once i did that my firefox was fine. The way some ISP's work is that they limit the amount of bandwidth you use at one time therefore u do not use your whole bandwidth and because FF uses a high bandwidth i find it sometimes needs to be reset to allow ff to perform to the max.
same thing, I used firefox ever since the beta version never had an issue with it. Much faster and overall better.
Are you sure you don't have a spyware / trojan / backdoor ?
yup seems like a bad extension
disable all extensions once and then try...
well.. i am using firefox.. but there seems no trouble in using it.. ?_?
