'like molasses in the winter time:

"Topix Is Not Responding" messages

Pop-Ups that constantly either cover the whole screen or partially.

I get in a game of "Free Cell" while waiting for the screen to generate.

Topix locks up for a minute when I tried to type this message. Normally it locks up when I scroll halfway down.

The pages are moving very slow for me too dear. Maybe Topix is cleaning house?

Now it says "Internet Connection Problems". It unsigned me in after signing in. I posted and then it locked up and lost my post. All of this one after the other. The screen gets 100% per cent covered with pop-ups and then little pop-ups on the side. I have my pop-up blocker on.

Did Topix hire the people that created the Obama Care website?

Amego I do believe you have a 'worm' or a 'bug' in your black box.
You have been in contact with an advertising website that has now
taken control of your computer.
Search your websites and delete the one that's causing the problem.
Catch the name of the [culprit] and GOOGLE it to find out how to get rid of it.
I'm not a computer guy and if your not your going to need one.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words and support, tears and hugs, when I was enduring a wretched cold and sinus infection! My snot is nice and clear now.....

Thank you!

It's running slow for me today. Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't. Lately most of the time it runs slow or extremely slow.

If it was running any slower it would be going backwards. Topix is a mess these days. But just take a look at the biggy-wiggy Trolles who's at the helm. The mess starts and stops there!
Mine also runs rather slowly on occasion, but I'm not in any rush so it doesn't bother me.
If I were paranoid I would think it were a conspiracy! j/k lol

Dear fellow posters,
Watch for a pattern to the slow times if you spend many hours on one web site. I've discovered my anti-virus or adobe programs auto up-dating in the background can slow everything to a freeze.
Go to settings and change your auto-updates to manual with reminders.
This way you can choose to be off line when those power hogs are working. I usually play desktop games if not running around the house doing chores.

As soon as I get on Topix it's slow that first minute. I never spend hours anywhere on the net.
One hour is usually the most time at once for me. I will keep this in mind.

According to several free website performance & speed testing sites Topix and Huffington Post have script problems and scripts are heavily used in ads. They fail page load time and speed tests.

Always close out ads(your command might have a delay), always stop videos/ads, always x out an ad. Make sure java script is up to date.

Using topix is like using dial-up in the 1990s. Too slow too much time and not enough time to wait for topix. Topix has got to be losing visitors because of their slowness.

Sometimes it's better to let a video start they stop it. Or just wait 30 seconds without doing anything(no typing or clicking)-too many commands will also slow down topix.
