    Is it just me or is HTF and other sites running a bit slow on Firefox? When I use IE HTF is fairly fast but here lately when I use Firefox (my preferred browser) it just seems that quite a few sites just run a bit slower than they did before no matter the time of day or night.

    I have not noticed any slowdown. I'm using Firefox 1.5 with the FasterFox 1.0.1 extension on two different PC's.

    One of the issues with Firefox (all versions) is the fact the program is NOT optimized for the type of connnection you're using.

    If you're using a broadband connection (768 kilobits per second or faster download speeds), I'd recommend you either install the FasterFox 1.0.1 extension to "tweak" Firefox or use this information posted by a regular on the FreeRepublic.com web page:

    The improvements in Firefox's browsing speed can be quite dramatic. [​IMG]
