Web page slowing browser down.

I know there has been a thread about this site being slow but this is slightly different.

When it takes longer than usual to load a page, I get a yellow band across the top saying "A web page is slowing your browser. What would you like to do?" The options are "Stop it" or "Wait". This has been happening for some time but only on this site. I have always clicked the first option and then it continues as normal. I'm using Firefox.

Yes, silly of me to get the wrong forum. I'll try your suggestions later. As I said, this only ever happens on this site.

I have been trying to post to your "priacy" thread but unfortunately the post symbol just spins and adblock numbrers ramp up radiply and the post never completes. Obviously something wrong on the site somewhere.

You are not alone, it's been happening to me and I raised it with our deveopment team a few days ago. They were investigating, and perhaps they found something because it has suddenly stopped happening.

"...yesterday I got dozens of auto email replies from previous postings"

I raised that issue with the development team last week, and they obviously tracked down the cause of the problem.

Haven't had the yellow band since FE's post and the site is flying this morning.
