    I don't know whether Firefox is broke...I think it is...or my virus killer is getting too nosey.
    For two days I have to reload pages of AAC or the buttons are very slow, like 20 seconds to change pages.
    Anybody running into glitches like that?

    I use FF and I experience the same thing. The most annoying thing is not being notified of new post on currently read thread. I can read a thread.....think that I have finished.......go back to sub-forum.....and find out 2 or 3 more post have been added....while I was reading.

    That's not too bad though........but I wish that I was notified of new post before posting. Many times I post.......and then find out 1 or 2 post have been done while writing.

    I run in to this often. I don't think FF is high on most web master's list.

    I was gonna try that new EDGE browser.......but it require a log-in. So it was not built for my use.

    That's for MS's use.

    When I first came here, they were using a different interface. It was much more advanced then this thing they're using now.

    Edit: I can even refresh a page......and not get new post. But close page and re-open....then new post are there.

    I have been noticing a lag in recognizing posts for a long time, but that's caused by AAC. The problems I think are mine is slow loading and the need to reload good looking pages before the buttons work properly.

    @#12, it's been like that for me too. Since the last FF update. But it doesn't happen on all sites I go to, this one is the worst though.

    FWIW, I am not having any of those issues with FF v54.0.1 Win7-64 Pro. AAC pages load OK and I get the indicator that 'New Messages have been posted..' while editing. Virus scan is Norton Internet Security. I use the AAC blue pages as a test to see how the internet is working for me as they usually load very quickly.

    After trying to load AAC five times across 3 minutes, I switched to Avast Safe Zone, and here I am.
    FF 52.2.1 (32 bit) finally came up, and I'm going to use that because it has all my shortcuts.

    After FF finally responds, it works pretty well, but that first page and logon can take 5 minutes.:mad:

    I had a slow load problem this afternoon (ok now). From what I read, ajax.googleapis can be a bottleneck. Even Apple users have reported this.

    It's Firefox. They have improved it to death.:(
    I'm going to see about backing up to January on the Firefox version.

    That's my thinking too. It's not all sites or forums but just some. Thinking there is a head butting with FF and something in the effected sites. But beyond my fixing. FF usually puts in a fix shortly after an update but not this time.

    A while back Firefox started acting slow for me. It was launching several threads (tasks) with each one taking up memory. My laptop has a small amount of memory (by todays standards) so this was a problem.

    I found on the Web how to tell FF not to launch more than one task. I tried it and it seemed to help. Unfortunately, I can't find the information I used to do this fix. :(

    FF does seem to be running slow for me lately but I think I still have the extra taks disabled. I running version 54.0.1 (32 bit) right now. I think it was an update from just a few days ago.

    I dialed Firefox back to version 50.0.2 from Dec. 2016
    No help. It still takes 2 or 3 minutes to log-on to AAC.
    Avast Safe Zone works well enough, but Avast doesn't have any method to snatch all my bookmarks from Firefox.
    Maybe the new Lappy will be able to function with Firefox, but I want this Vista machine to work, too.
    Reality keeps intruding in my life.:mad:
    I guess I'll start moving my bookmarks to Avast, one by one.

    May be wrong on this but don't think it is an 'operating system' thing. I'm using Win 10 and it's affecting me. I also use Norton for my safety program.
