    I am on my android power POS on either chrome or Mozilla and only having problems with this sight. Takes forever to switch around ,freezes when I try to check notices.
    And I am on WiFi 2 feet from the box. It costs too much to not be on WiFi so no,I haven't tried it otherwise.

    Didn't used to be...
    ...then, they went and "improved" the he11 out of it!

    Whether phone, tablet, laptop or desktop, using Mozilla, Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari on Android, Windows, Apple, whatever, it now hangs, slows, stops, jumps, bumps. My take is, it's so overloaded with ads all loading and re-loading that it never finishes or completes a page, creating conflicts as you make your selections.....but that's just a wild guess by my non-techy part.

    I have lots of trouble with it. Every time I start it the program stops responding, then eventually starts again. I cannot use the back arrow in my browser as it doesn't respond, so I have to hit the reload button and once it starts I can then hit the back arrow and it usually works. I only have this problem on this site. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.

    I'm on my galaxy S5 and since the upgrade it's gotten slow... didn't use to be.

    There was a improvement about 2 yrs ago and it did the same thing. The other forums work fine from my phone.

    Try downloading Firefox safari or chrome to see if that improves things for you.

    If it does then it is your computer and not the site probably.

    This site, just screams, on my six month old IPad! I keep yanking my finger away from the touch screen! My reflexes think I'm going to get bitten! :rolleyes: Just sayin'.

    Oh yeah, using Safari.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. When I'm trying to track these things down the more details I get the better :)

    Reset Firefox back to default settings. I run FF and have had no issues. Then again, I run a PC and have full control
    Something is tied to whatever your using and robbing your bandwidth

    You could ask Obama to open the valve on the innerwebs, see if that speeds things up.
