I'm running 3.24 gigs of ram on a computer about 3 years old.

But at this time I'm running on Firefox and things are popping with no freezing so far.
I will keep running this for awhile and see how it goes.

IE with the default plugins tends to not able to read the scripts during page load due to the restrictions in place of those plugins.

Try switching off all the plugins attached with IE or switch to Google Chrome or Firefox... you will notice a difference.

I have Firefox running.

It was slow loading the page first log on today.
At the bottom of the page, I saw "doubleclick.net" displayed as I was waiting.

Nice.

Occasionally I'll have a slow first open here, usually about now in the evening, even with Firefox, but it appears to be site traffic. Once I get on, the normal speed is normally there. Usually every other site is just fine as far as speed.

Did I say I really dislike IE??

XP was not made to run IE8. Download a different browser. Or you can upgrade to windows 7 or 8. Xp is very outdated. There's been vista, 7, and now we have 8 already.

Log out

Why do I still have to log out twice?

Why can't it all load one time when you get on the site, then allow you to move around the site without it having to reload with every action? Its even worse when you're just browsing without logging in because you then have to wait for the page ads to load also. On several occasions the site just locked up requiring me to turn my PC off to reboot and clear.

I don't have this problem anywhere but here at HR. and one other auto related site, come to think of it, I believe that site is also owned by the same firm.

If I delete my browsing history it speeds up a little bit, but gets back slow again within a few minutes of activity. If I delete the history which removes the cookies, then run a Norton scan, the Norton usually finds 20-30 more cookies.

Another issue is when I try to log out, I have to log out twice. It tells me that I'm logged out, but I'm stilled logged in until I log out a second time.

Please speed it up, its become real aggravating.

I cannot honestly say I've noticed this issue here on Hotrodders. Maybe it's because for the last year or so, almost all of my Hotrodders viewing/posting has been via my iPad. Like right now. But I do notice the issue on the Corvette Forum. It's so flippin' obvious! There is about a five second delay to make SURE you have the time to read their ads. If you have this issue here, please try the Corvette Forum, and let me know what you think.

Best regards,

PatM

That's weird. Are you still using Chrome or did you switch back to IE? Try clearing your cookies.

Log out

Still using chrome, its alot faster. Cleared all cookies on chrome and IE. Logged in and out three times just now. Still have to log out twice. The "remember me" box automatically rechecks itself after I remove the check, but it has always done this for as long as I've been a member here.

I use the white screen with big print (old eyes). When I log off the first time, my user name remains in the block and the screen is still white. When I log out the second time the screen goes back to default black with little print and my user name is gone from the block.

So I suppose that after I log out the first time and it tells me that I'm logged out and all cookies are cleared, there are still cookies attached because it still knows that I chose the white screen.

Hey Nolan.

Have you tried the Firefox?

I don't know if it would help in logging off as I never log off. I have no reason to. I hope the wife and kids don't come on and start posting and make me look like a troll....

Kookie cookies

Hey Pugs, Good morning. I guess I'll need to try some different browsers eventually. I think the problem with having to log out twice is HR.com based, along with other functions that don't work here. Administration here should have their techs actually move around the site and test all functions and make repairs and/or improvements on a PROACTIVE basis. Nolan

Agreed. Anyone else notice the "unanswered posts" button doesn't work either?

Hey BD, It works for me on Google Chrome, BUT it is filled with tons of threads that have been answered. Perhaps it hasn't been cleaned up in a long time? Nolan
