Are you using Firefox as well? Chrome?
opera works well, it also blocks ads without having to install any plug-in.
Don't know what to tell you on that. Once I blocked the ads, I have had zero issues whatsoever.
I'm running a 2009 Imac Mini, 2 Ghz, 3 Gb of ram. Zero issues on Firefox, Safari, or Opera.
Additionally, I have used my laptop at work to connect to this forum, and it's a Pentium Slobile 1.7 Ghz with only 768 MB of ram.
My guess based on what you have said, is that you either have an infestation of Adware on your computer, or your Firefox needs a reset.
Just a guess though.
Besides that, most of the scripts are fairly basic, and I wouldn't want to lose the auto-save function.
Chrome with Adblock and no problems
Trust the people telling you that Google Chrome has issues handling the auto-play stuff. My experience and folks I've talked to on USMB all agree. Tons of performance once you find those switches to turn it off. Problem might be you have multiple tabs open with these ads RELOADING new material all the time. Or even TWO ads on page with animation.
Worth it to avoid the annoying side effects of adblockers holding you up after 30 to buy the licenses.
BTW ---- if you allow autoplay and the Ad server barfs or is slow -- it WILL slow you up a lot.
Not having any problems with Opera. I think it's my Firefox. I probably should delete Firefox and re-download it.
I'm on a 2010 MacBook Pro, btw.
I have problems with crashing when YouTube videos are posted. I can't figure out how to block YouTube.
Firefox has a nifty reset feature. It barfs out all the crap, and keeps only your personal data (logins and such). It is effectively the same as deleting everything and starting over, except you don't have to re-enter all your passwords. Although I would hope you have that information backed up somewhere.
Even then, the reset function dumps a folder on your desktop, which contains all the old data it barfed up during the reset. Thus in the highly unlikely event that you lose something you need, you could go digging through the old data folder to find it.
I have had to do a reset on Firefox several times. Once because it simply got bogged down, and a few others because I moronically installed some adware/malware that switched on Forest Gump mode, and wouldn't do anything but go to a web address that installed more adware. (death penalty for virus / malware developers is my campaign slogan. Vote for Andy in this election).
Regardless in all 3 resets, it kept all my personal data, and barfed out the crap. Never had to dig through it for anything. Kept it on a backup drive in cased I needed it for about 6 months, and deleted it.
You should try doing the reset function first. It's possible it could fix everything. Can't hurt to try.
Update yer Firefox.
