Loading is VERY Slow; Curser slow; Board moves

The boards are loading VERY slowly and the "New" icon seems to load almost 3-4 seconds after the verbiage. Likewise when youplace the curser on the post you would like to ope it is an "arrow" and does not change to the "up index finger" for a couple of seconds. Then the screen moves a bit and the post you were highlighting is no longer being pointed to.

Is this happening to others?

  1. I'm not having the problem at all - seems quite speedy to me today!

    1. Have you cleared your files and cookies lately? (Click on Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files & Delete Cookies & Clear History)

          Have you restarted your computer? All seems ok here, this morning.

      1. Same problem here. Firefox 2.0. Topic pages will not load completely.
        Seems to hang on contacting google.com and chow.com.
        Board pages load quicker but will also hang on chow.com

        1. Very very slow on IE 6 on Win XP, computer restarted several times.

          A long thread seems to hang my computer - at least, it freezes the browser window (can't scroll until the page is fully loaded, and things get messed up if I try to scroll too early).

          ICK!!!!!!!!

            This is what I'm experiencing too, with same system and after clearing & restarting.

          2. Things are running/loading slow here, too - using IE 6 - have cleared cookies and cache. Having trouble with the page "jumping" a bit, the drop down menu for the boards is taking up to 5-seconds to appear, etc. Very frustrating.
