Browsers slow on some sites
Posted on 2015-01-30
When I first start my system, or when it has been idle for a while, and I fire up either Firefox or IE, many websites, especially the NYT, Wall Street Journal and CBS, come up and freeze for some 20-30 seconds while the page loads. If I use browsers throughout the day, the sites that froze at first are fine and come up quickly when I either google them or use a bookmark. This is new to my system. I tried: flushing the DNS and using net stop and net start; flushing the Firefox dns cache. My downlaod speed is 48.25, upload 70.37. I can't figure out what changed in my setup to create this problem. Heretofore if I clicked on the Times site it loaded in seconds. Thank you.
