    Default improving the speed of forum navigation (chromium vs firefox)

    Using chromium 64.0.3282.140-138.1
    navigating to different pages on this forum can be very slow.
    It says: "Waiting for www.suse.com..."

    Since switching to Firefox 52.6-75.1
    I'm immediately transferred to the next page.

    The difference is remarkable.

    I have tried with "ublock origin" disabled
    and I get the same results.
    (It's nice to see I don't even need it here. )
    No other extensions are installed.

    Yea, it's been noticed and it's only using Chrome/Chromium. All other browsers
    don't have the issue.

    My computer always used to beat me at chess, but it is no match for me since I changed the competition to kick boxing

    I have exactly the same issue with Firefox.

    Hey arvidjaar:

    >I have exactly the same issue with Firefox.


    I've never seen anyone complain about Firefox. I don't see it in Firefox.

    Does the same thing happen if you open firefox in safe mode?

    I started using qutebrowser again, which is based on PyQt 5.10.0 (Chromium 61.0.3163.140).
    The problem exists, as we might expect, but I found that when it hangs I can just press R (reload)
    and then the page instantly loads.

    I confirm that.
    Firefox is a lot faster than google-chrome (I do not use chromium).
    After F5, not only that page but a lot of pages after load much faster.
    Thanks for this hint.
