Page loading problems.

Follow

Is anyone else experiencing problems with pages loading? After getting to the home page for the Q & A, when I click on any thread, there's about a minute long pause when only the ads and blue bars are shown; the rest of the page is clear white.


Eventually, the actual thread loads - usually. Sometimes I just close down or visit another site where the problem doesn't occur.. This happens in both IE and Firefox, so I'm sure it's not a browser issue.


Now I'm getting a notice stating ""transferring data from page ad 2 google.syndication.com" -- it seems to infer the thread is loaded on google and then opened here. (The notice is w/o spaces, which I added for legibility.)


I randomly picked "Emotional Wellbeing" as the thread category b/c thinking that posts are being automatically submitted to some google ad (which is probably a tracking ad) is going to affect my emotional wellbeing if this doesn't get fixed ASAP.


I knew that threads were linked to google but I don't understand why they would load there first and be transferred here, unless there's some linking that's just been initiated.


Anyone else having this problem?

And I don't have anything by Microsoft on my computer. MS seems to make everything just flakey. I abandoned the MS OS and bought all Apple devices and I love them.

I haven't noticed any slowness -- only the aforementioned type size (too large/too small), and the fact that I can no longer access the news feed from the Q+A threads. I have an ancient Mac laptop; I have a program called MacKeeper that I pay a monthly fee for but it's worth it -- one of its features is that it turns my adblocker on/off. I hadn't realized how annoying those ads were, and that they slowed EVERYTHING down.

Bringing this back up to the top. Didn't we already suffer enough back then?

I tried Chrome, but for some reason it messed up my mailing lists... oops, those lists were important. Once I removed Chrome, the mailing lists were working once again. It could be that my computer wasn't compatible due to age.

I havent used those in years lol. I mosly use Chrome. The other browser to use is called opera, it has higher speed and not that many people use it so its safer to use and hackers dont really target it. When pages are loading slow, I would try that.

Tacy, I use two.... IE and Foxfire.... I found Foxfire worked better for Aging Care because I was able to enlarge the comment box. IE wouldn't let me do that.

I usually run a "cleaner sweep" type software to help get rid of unwanted items automatically. Tried that this morning, it didn't help this website at all :(

When things run slow, I back out of everything, click on computer, then C drive, then windows, then temp. At temp I "select all" then "delete". Seems to solve a lot of problems.
