100 lb. Club - Is this site supremely slow lately, or is it just me?

Ever since I got back from vacation last week, this site has been SOOOO slow to load. So slow in fact that when I click a thread I have to go do something else for a minute while I wait for it to load. No other websites are slow on my computer.

Anyone else notice this? Any fix?

Are any other sites slow? I haven't noticed any slowness myself.

No, just this one. Takes forever to load any thread.

I haven't noticed this site being slow to load. Have you run virus/Spyware/Adware scans? Perhaps it's time to put your 'puter on a diet and dump the cookies?

When mine gets balky I ferret out the internet cooties, clean up my registry and perhaps defrag. It generally works like a charm.

yes, I posted about this too. when I try to open forums and threads it can take 20 to 30 seconds. I don't see it with other sites.

It's horribly slow on my computer, too. No other sites are slow. I've noticed that when it's slowest, it says that it's loading the picture for the Target ad. I think that the Soy Joy ad from Target is new. Could it be causing problems? Don't laugh if that's a stupid question please.

It's not slow for me, but when I click on something, it shows that it's still loading, even though it's all there.....I hope they fix it because it doesn't happen on any other site for me either.

It's super slow for me. Been doing this for about a week now. Everything takes forever to load.

It's been really bad, I've more or less given up trying to get in most of the time

Ah ok, thanks. I think it must be a site specific issue then. All other sites I visit open quickly as usual.

Hey, I solved the problem! I was using IE. I am now using Mozilla Firefox (another free browser, you can google it for the download) and added Ad Blocker. No Ads, and super fast browsing, even this site!

Same thing here and its annoying. Half the time when I click on start a new thread it just sits there...hope they fix it!

I have not had any problems. I use FireFox with ad blocker. I hate to stop 3FCs method of income but the ads really hurt my experience here. I would gladly pay a fee for a version without ads.

Where did you get the Adblocker ladies? Is it free? Thanks ...

I have already switched to Mozilla Firefox some time ago and like others here, this site has been taking forever to load the last week or so; and my pc says the same thing ... that it is the ad documents.com that is causing it.

Onederchic

Yes, Adblocker Plus for Firefox is free. I will pm you the link.

Could someone please tell me now to get the adblocker too? I use FF for facebook and IE for everything else, but 3FC is SO slow :(

Edit-Found it with Google, oh my gosh what a difference!! This is awesome! I used to have to type a sentence and wait for it to show up letter by letter! Woo!

Although, we can't stop you, we ask users not to use adblocker because ads are how the site are paid for and how the site is free.

I would recommend using firefox though because IE is always slow for me.

I downloaded Firefox yesterday and it is working great without any ad blocker.

Yeah, Mandalinn checked and apparently the Target ad is causing issues with IE (not sure why). We are looking into it.
