This is a strange one to me and I hope I can explain clearly, what is going on.
I have two different laptops that this is happening on. When the systems are in the corporate office and work with IE9, it is very fast and functions well. When either of these systems are away from the office, IE9 opens quickly but take a long time to load the homepage or tool bars that I have loaded. When I say toolbars, I am talking about the menu bar, favorites bar, nothing custom. Once IE9 has finished loading the home page, any other page that is opened is fast; even a new tab is fast. It is just the initial launch that is slow when away from the corporate office.
As a note, the same laptops are also running firefox. Firefox runs quickly no matter if its in the corporate office or not.
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with IE9 that it is so slow when away from the office?
