I've still got Adblock Plus. Also have CCleaner, and SlimCleaner. Running those makes my old laptop work like new. Also have Ad-Aware Antivirus. They're all free

I tried Firefox and it seems to have increased speed. Still a tad glitchy but much faster. Also I did NOT install a plug in so videos cannot play. I installed it as option, not my default browser.

I'd say the software for the videos in particular is what's slowing everything down.

Yes, too much Flash software running. I'm sure some of tons of javascript they use isn't helping either, particularly if they are using javascript libraries instead of style sheets.

Since you have Firefox, install Adblocker Plus. It will turn all of that stuff off and speed up even more.

Did it remove the TRACKER on some threads or ALL threads ?
if so why ?
or was it just a glitch in their system? It shows it still being tracked but does not reappear even after it has obviously been posted on again? Just curious. thanks. Rick

Download their software and see what it tells you. It told me that the Topix thread that I was on is no longer available.
So its a Topix issue.
