    Poor website performance with Firefox

    Recently your site has become very buggy when using Firefox.
    I have logged out, cleared cookies, logged back in, updated browser, etc and still have issues.
    Opening with a new tab results in a many of them being a blank page which never fully loads.
    This happens on both Windows machines and Mac.

    Site appears to be okay using Google Chrome but I hate that browser.

    Yes. Use Google. They probably have your data, anyway.

    Chances are your Mozilla searches are through Google. Chances are your emails go through Google servers.

    Re: Poor website performance with Firefox

    I've noticed that Firefox seems to be buggy lately, and I've had some issues recently... many of which are on here. I'll get the blank pages. On my home computer the page just won't load. I'll have to refresh many times. On my work computer, the tabs will load, but once I click on the tab suddenly the page and the header goes away... and it tries to search for it again. A refresh won't work oddly enough, I have to highlight the link and click enter. Kind of odd.

    I run Firefox on my work computer both in Ubuntu and in a Windows virtual box (I use XP for that as that is all I need). At home I run Firefox on Xubuntu. It works well on both units except when odd scripts run. I think the problems with Firefox may just depend upon what you are running it on and maybe whether you are running Ad blockers.

    Use Chrome.

    Firefox was getting very bad years ago.

    Edge is much better than Google/Chrome, Edge is faster - Google is probably collecting so much data from every click I take that it is slowing itself down. Not that I have any delusions that Microsoft isn't doing the same, they just collect my data faster.

    Sounds like I need to break myself of Firefox. I remember it was hot stuff 10 years ago when I hopped on. Too bad they couldn't keep up.

    Chrome has been doing *alright*. It still runs the pages slow and gives me blank pages like mentioned above. I was actually about to try out Firefox. Guess that's a dead end street.

    Edge it is, then?

    Re: Poor website performance with Firefox

    Hey guys,

    For those experiencing issues with 'buggy'-ness (firefox users), are you using any adblockers? What exactly happens, is it ads that bogging down the site? Does it just slow down? Do you have to notice at the bottom left corner of your browser window where a bunch of scripts/ads may be zipping through and it says stuff like "Waiting for www.gminsidenews.com..." or anything like that?

    If they zip through quickly, that good it's supposed to be like that. However if you notice it hangs onto a specific one for a long time, take a screenshot and let us know which section (link) you saw that on our site.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.


    Cheers,
    Natalie

    Speaking of ad blockers, I'm using Google Chrome and also have an ad blocker. The ad blocker is what seems to cause most of the headaches I experience because of slowness or stalling/freezing up. And yes, the little message corner down at the bottom left of the page is going crazy saying it's waiting for this, that, or the other. I just let it do its stuff and eventually get there.
