Did a speed test and it came back at 1.8 meg which is normal. But IE seems to load pages alot faster than FF at the moment. FF also takes a while to load when I click the shortcut in the the quicklaunch bar.
I have tried the same sites in both browsers and FF is slow now compared to what I am used to with the browser.
It's on XP home sp2. and I am using the latest version of FireFox.
I'll have a go with the other stuff you've posted and flimbo's aswell. Many Thanks.
Just a thought would it be something to do with ms antispyware flagging up ist.istbar? It found 2 registry entries and that was all, no trace of it since and I have scanned with spybot, adaware and my AV: all is clean. The only thing I'm suffering is FF being slow.
