Google Analytics

  Dragonfyre 13:20 07 Aug 09

I use the Firefox browser and IE8. i have noticed that when I type a URL into Firefox, its gives the message at the bottom of the browser "waiting for google analytics" this can take time, once it has found this it then starts looking for the site I have requested. Is this part of Firefox, or is it something I can turn off. If the latter can anybody tell me how please

This is normal behaviour for Firefox. It's just it's way of letting you know it's doing something. As far as I know you can neither remove or turn off this action. I have always found Firefox to be slow. If you want to use Firefox I'm afraid you'll just have to go with the flow.

There are a few small tweaks to speed up Firefox although I can't remember them off hand. I tend to install and forget. If I can think of them I'll post them.

It is actually a website tracking system that isn't tied to a specific browser. click here
