Hello, I'm on a G5 with TFF 38.4.0, and am having slowdown issues with some sites, one especially, It seems to load ok, then the pinwheel starts as it's loading a few things. The home page always shows a photo of some business with a rating box in the lower left. The page will slow down until the rating box is displayed. I've tried disabling JavaScript, changing settings in about:config, installing No Script, etc - no change. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. :)

    The page loads fine for me. It's not the fastest on my G4 PowerBook, but tolerable (tested with a fresh Firefox user profile with no add-ons). However, I do use Adblock in my usual profile and the page loads considerably faster here.

    I tried YesScript and blacklisted, and now it just loads the basic page without waiting for a bunch of Javascript, but in general it still seems slow to me. I don't know, I realize there will always be code issues doing TFF for the Power Mac, but are there any other things I can do besides changing about:config settings? I'm using Tiger, and Safari 4.1.3 is still much smoother. I'd rather use TFF as my main one since you guys are doing so much to keep it up to date. Wish someone could write something to make Tiger more compatible with today's web.

    Seems to load fast and efficient for me on 10.4.11 on my PPC 7450.
