Is FireFox slow today?

Taking for ever to load pages. Using Chrome at the moment.

FF 18.0.1. This version has been noticeably slower since I updated.

Jock1e , you've lost me this time. What was only one click? Personal folder? Do you still use the Windows folders for docs, music , photos etc, tied to the libraries?

I've created my own so Microsoft can't snoop.

FF and other sites are reluctant to load as well. BBC iplayer loads immediately.

My Nexus 7 Boat browser is having the same problems showing ' connectivity problem'. It shares the same router as the PC so am wondering if it is a Talk Talk problem. which seems unlikely in view of other posts.

I don't have Foxit or Eset.

If I uninstall FF and re-install presumably it will find all my bookmarks?

Will wait till tomorrow and see if any improvement.

Chrome is playing up now so I think a MWB and a Kaspersky scan is called for here.

Now back on FF where this site is loading in a flash. (no pun intended)

I'd reboot the router.

That's on the list, but thanks.

The problem on FF is posting a reply. Round and round goes the circle.

Before you do that, close FF then run CC twice. Reboot, wait for desktop to load all then try FF.

Only this site is slow to open now. Started a Kaspersky scan just now. but it was showing 5 hrs to run so will run tonight.

See if this posts. Surprised to see my 1021pm here as I posted and the little green circle went round and round

for twenty minutes so I switched off.

Already checked TM. Idle is 97%

Trying to d/load FF. Get into the site quick enough, but any further into the site it wont go.

Don't think I will risk changing channels---could be grounded for a week!!

Presumably if I eboot router it will come back as is?
