What is causing CH to be so slow when trying to exit a page and go to another? I frequently have to shut down and start again. Clues?

    I'm not having any problems at all.

      I've had problems with slow response times similar to yours. A knowledgeable young woman told me to completely shut the computer off for about 10 minutes. Then turn it on again. That seems to help me when I have such a problem.

      The caveat of my suggestion is that I'm not systems savvy, so the suggestion may not help, but it may be worth a try.

        I was hoping that this topic would involve some introspection and analysis.

          Are you on a Mac or a PC? If on a PC I really like running the free program "CCleaner" https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner to clear my browser cache and other dusting and vacuuming of the detritus that builds up in my PC over time.

          If you are on a Mac then go in and clear your browser history on a regular basis. I also really like Firefox as a browser (or Chrome) rather than I.E.

            I would not have an Apple even if they wanted to give it to me free. CH is the only site I have this issue with. Every other site opens right up with no delays.

              Do you run CCleaner? If not you just might try it to see if it makes a difference for you here. What have you got to lose? Even if that's not the whole answer it may be part of it.

          Have you tried using a different browser? Sometimes that helps.
