Default forum seems difficult for my computer

Sorry for the weird subject; it was hard to summarize my issue.

I'm not sure if it's because of all the video ads or what, but when I am on this forum my laptop seems like it has to work a LOT harder than on other websites.
Even more-so if I have multiple tabs open for multiple forum pages.

It doesn't do this on other forums that I visit, and it isn't exclusive to threads that are image heavy.

Any suggestions for things I can do? I try to only have one thread open at a time, but it still makes my computer work more.

Laptop isn't old--bought it about a year ago.

Are you using IE? IE can be much slower for the forum than other browsers. Firefox is a free download and is much faster, and the Google Chrome browser is also super fast. What browser do you use?

Thank you for replying.
I use firefox. Could it be anything else? I also notice that when I'm on the forums, the left edge of my laptop (where the hot air vent is) warms up.
