Is anyone else having trouble getting the forums to load in a speedy manner lately?  This is the only site that is taking up to a minute to load sometimes.  All the other sites I visit regularly work just fine.  It doesn't seem to matter if I'm logged in or not; it's just slow, slow slow.  It's making me visit the forums less & less, unfortunately.

Hi laz98,


I'm sorry you are having a problem with the forums loading.  I haven't noticed any problems.  What browser are you using?  You might try clearing your cache.  

Hi Moose.  I'm using Firefox 11.  I haven't upgraded to 12 because it isn't compatible with my Norton Toolbar.


Actually the last time I cleared my cache to solve a different computer problem, is when I think this problem started, LOL.  But something was bugging my memory, so i searched the forums, & I actually posted about this same problem in March of last year, to no avail.  Not sure what to do.

 I've already upgraded to Firefox 12, but Firefox 11 should work.  


OH...look at Norton  (another Lithium powered community) looks like they now have support for the Firefox12 and the Tool Bar.  -> Link


Cache should probably be clear on a regular basis.  I know I'm bad at it too, but it's the first thing I do to make sure that's not the issue.

Well, cleared the cache, & restarted my computer.  Still slow, but not as slow.  Not top-notch for sure.  Guess that will have to do.


Does the new Firefox look any different than 11?  I hate when they change it & I have to find a way to get it back the way I like it.

When I upgraded I skipped a few versions and don't really remember.  I was a die hard Internet Explorer person...I mean I would not switch to save the world!  Then my son's and co-workers finally convinced me to switch to Firefox because it was better and faster.  I finally came to love Firefox, BUT now my son's have talked me into Chrome.  WOW...there is better speed there!  I'm not good with change either and I'm having a harder time finding what I need on Chrome, but I will say it has the speed.  I go back to Firefox and IE for a few things.  


Maybe you could just give Chrome a try and see if the speed improves.  You can easily have more than one browser...I have 4 so I can test for users issues!  Smiley Happy
