I'm actually having the same problem as the OP, folks.
I thought it was something with my computer, but now that someone else has brought it up... maybe this new format is chewing up firefox somehow ??
I get serious lag only when I'm trying to type out a reply, the typing lags and my cpu fans goes way up.
I have an AMD Phenom II x6 processor w/ 16 gb of ram operating on Win 7 and use firefox. Absolutely everything is up to date, I run scans regularly,
check for malware regularly, etc etc.
This has been going on now for about a couple of weeks.
The only thing that is different on my actual computer has been the recent Java update, which falls into about the same timeframe as when I've been
getting the lag here on ATS... severe lag when typing out a reply, cpu fans start overworking, and youtube videos take forever to buffer sometimes to
the point that I have to refresh the page and try again.
There doesn't seem to be any lag problem if just surfing through the threads though.
Could it have something to do with this recent java update ?
Edit to add: I've checked to see what processes are running in the background and there's nothing there that shouldn't be.
I have a feeling it's got something to do with the Java update... prior to that there was no lag problems.
And like hell if I'm changing over to that piece of crap IE.
The problem is only on ATS and only during a post/reply or trying to watch a youtube video.
