Chowhound Hang ups

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?

  1. I'm not having any problems at all.

    1. 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.

      1. 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" 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.

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