On my computer, I'm using 11.3, KDE 4.4.4 and Firefox 3.6.8. Firefox is so s...l...o...w..... It's slow loading and it's slow browsing. Konqueror takes 1, maybe 2 seconds to load, and another second to load the home page. Firefox takes a good 30 seconds to load. The only message I get when loading from a terminal is about not using a shared database. I don't hear the disk churning like it would with a fragmented disk.
I can't believe everyone is having this response, the hue and cry would be enormous! Anything to try? Should I try loading another browser? I tried Opera on 11.2 and didn't really like it, had problems with a lot of content. What about Sea Monkey (Gad, I HATE words with monkey in them!) Konqueror won't show a lot of videos and I have problems using the back and forward buttons. I'll wait for fixes but in the meantime.
I'm not sure why, but over the last couple of days when I browse the web with my Centos 5.3 machine running firefox 3.0.5, it takes a very long time to load web pages. Loading the app itself is pretty quick, and I have not issues with system resources (it's an HP Proliant ML115 server, with dual opteron processors & 3Gb RAM). Looking at CPU & disk useage there's nothing out of the ordinary:
I've recently installed openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit) on my system and am experiencing severe performance issues with websites using https (any site using https). Page loads over https take anywhere between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. It's the same issue posted here Secure sites load slow or not at all -- there was no confirmed solution.
- My router/hardware configuration has not changed in a long time and I've run Ubuntu, Arch Linux, and Windows XP on the same machine within the last year and have not had any issues. - I also have a laptop running Arch Linux (kernel 2.6.38) and this problem does not occur using Firefox 4 or Chrome. To add to the madness this problem occurs while running Firefox 4 inside a Windows 7 guest via virtual box, but NOT while running IE 8 inside the same guest. - This issue occurs using Firefox 4, Chromium, Opera, Konqueror, and Arora. - I've disabled ipv6 in Firefox via about:config. - I've disabled ipv6 in yast and have attempted to use both the "ifup" and "networkmanager" options. - I am not using a proxy server. - I've attempted the fix posted in the Ubuntu forums for a similar problem [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Banking Site is very slow.
I'm running 11.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. Everything has been great other than issues with Suspend and hibernate not working correctly. However after about a month of use browsing the web has really slowed down bad. It doesn't seem to matter if it's in Firefox or Chrome either. I am using a wireless connection that is getting the signal at 85-95%. Even though I still tried using a direct cat-5 connection to the router and it was still slow as well. I have the fastest broadband connection my cable offers and my windows boxes on the same network are still flying.
This something I have only experienced since the final install.I'm using a fresh firefox profile with NO extensions currently. The only change I have made is to disable ipv6 to see if it helped with the following problem. Browsing web pages is stupidly slow and much slower than I am used to.Downloading in firefox is normal and running at speeds I would expect.For example, I have downloaded several distro .iso's over the past two days and they have been consistently downloading at 1MB/s +This is only affecting browsing web pages and it's affecting all of them, even the basic google search page takes at least twice as long as normal.
web browsing is going SUPER slow in my samsung N150 netbook with dual boot(win7/ubuntu10.04). Windows counterpart working flawlessly.
Into the details:
The problem is, i go into a website and it seems to renderize by chunks, ie i enter my favorite PC hardware forum and it is like this when loading: Processors...1sec....Vid cards....1sec...Memory...and on and on until the bottom of the page is reached. The normal behavior is: Click...forum loaded ,as on windows.
By default i use my wireless conection, but also tried wired one to no avail. Also tried it from the live cd and i have the same problem. Some sitess like google, gmail and ..... load normally(instantly). I've tried disabling ipv6 as adviced in several parts and had no results. I used the default firefox 3.6.6, firefox 3.6.7 and chrome with the same results.
This is the info for my wireless adapter just in case:
I have looked at other threads on this subject and am still confused. Several weeks ago I had issues with browsing taking forever to resolve a page. When I changed my router to Open DNS settings that seemed to fix the slows and when I replaced the Open DNS IP's with the Google IP's, things were even quicker. Now I am back to the slows but there is no resolution latency it's just a delay when clicking a link, nothing happens and then the page eventually loads but you see the ads write on the page after the text loads. It's just not snappy. My nsswitch.config looks like this:
# /etc/nsswitch.conf # # Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality.
I' have FC10,firefox3.0.4it take ages to load any page.the d/l speed is good .but while loading pages it takes a lot of time!while on XP everything works fine even though the the firefox version being an earlier one than FC10
Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.
my computer is very slow to view regular web pages, and generally fails to load them. It seems to be a problem specifically with webpages - I can work over SSH, use email, transfer files over FTP connections, with no noticeable problems, but any regular website (including this one) can take an age to load. This happens regardless of the browser I use (at least, it happens on Firefox, Opera, and Chromium), and regardless of wired or wireless connection (though admittedly I've not tried using a wired connection very much). As far as I can tell, it can also happen on any website. It is specific to linux - my computer is dual-boot ubuntu 10.04/Windows XP, and there is no networking problem when I use Windows.
I have a 2.6 P4 with HT and 1GB of PC3200. i'm using an RaLink 2760 based wifi card. i compiled the driver from source, don't think it matters because i get this problem on ethernet as well. video is RV280 (radeon 9200). i have 3D accelleration supposively and get 570fps steady with glxgears. i'm in F11 updated as far as yum will take me.
When browsing websites, usually forums but even things like ....., the computer acts like it's being bogged down by something. i scroll down a page and it takes a few seconds for the screen to catch up. i understand i'm not running the most up to date hardware but i don't think this machine should have any problems with web browsing.
I have a connection an its slow in both ff and chrome...however i can ping sites and get the same response time as my xp machine which runs fast. usually around the 40ms mark with no lost packets.
Also when i do installs eg. of chrome etc, i was getting up to 500kB/s download. I just cant seem to replicate this browsing, its loading up at a dial up pace. The last time I had an issue like this was setting up my mums work laptop on our home network where the work had specific proxy settings, so we turn the off and it works fine.
I do not know how to tinker this
INFO:::: broadcom 4306 chip have tried ndiswrapper and bcmxx fwcutter
I'm using wlan and I'm behind a NAT firewall. Downloading with BitTorrent can reach speeds of 1,5MB/s, but browsing is incredibly slow. Chromium/Firefox seems to hang forever on "connecting.." or "waiting for". Sometimes pressing the reload button will speed it up. I have two Ubuntu boxes and they are the same way.
I don't get it, if downloading is so fast, how can browsing be so slow. Yes I have disabled ipv6 in grub and in Firefox, don't know how to do it in Chromium. Have 64-bit Ubuntu. Cnet wlan card using rt61pci module.
I don't know if others are experiencing this but browsing is extremely slow in firefox after "upgrading" to ubuntu 11.04. I have not tried other browsers. Even checking for updates fails several times.
I had to re-boot to windows to post this thread and now it's working fine. It's been 3 days since upgrading and I've observed many times that there's no such problem in windows while I have to wait like 4-5 minutes and refresh many times to open a single page. Some sites like google are quicker though. I use firefox 4.0 both in ubuntu and windows. I didn't have this problem in 10.10 and it took me about 5 hrs. to download 1 GB upgrade packages.
I'm running Mac OS on a home network that includes a Win 7 machine and a Ubuntu box (Ubuntu 11.04 (GNU/Linux 2.6.38-8-generic i686)). Connecting to, and browsing the shared drives I have on the Ubuntu box (which acts as my server) is extremely slow from the Mac, it seems that the icons especially take ages to load. I've found a few suggestions on the net that I've implemented to no avail i.e. socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=65536 SO_SNDBUF=65536 Are there any other settings I should play with, or is there an alternative to samba that will work faster on a mixed network and be compatible with everything?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Precario Laptop I'm connected via WiFi to an Edimax BR6424-N and i cannot login to Msn and browsing is extremly slow as soon as i connect to any other network but myin everythings fine, Ive searched the web alot and found that i should down the mtu in linux so i did, from auto to 1350 and still i keep getting disconencted from msn and briwsing is just extremly slow, Im In the same room as the router so distance is not the issue...
Viewing any source on the Web results in partial loading of data followed by broken up multiple lines. It is occurring now with this post. Paging down I get three lines of "submit new thread" until at the bottom are multiple lines (no characters) after "forum rules". I put it to my network provider who cannot come up with any idea of what may cause it. It cannot be the hardware as the same condition exists on two PC's. Both are on 11.2.
I have in my pc (ubuntu 10.10 32 bit) a folder with about 10.000 files. It is a samba shared folder and so far I could browse fast and easily those files in another old ( Pentium4 1,5Ghz) PC with WinXP. I installed ubuntu 10.10 but the browsing now is toooooooo slow , although the old Pc's performance is considerably faster than before (when I had WinXP). Also, although the old PC's speed is satisfatory now, would it become even faster if I installed an older ubuntu distro?
On my system Firefox 4 seemed to be taking its sweet time "looking up" addresses, but when it found the page it blazed on the render. I poked around on the net and found a few suggestions to speed up the "look up". So I thought I would share... I aimed for the fewest changes, so not to break too many things or make a big mess. (Warning moving and changing things that you don't know about, in the about:config can goof up Firefox so double check your settings) place about:config in the address bar and hit enter
You should get a really long list of things
In the search bar put network.dns.disableIPv6
My default value was set to false, go ahead and set it to true. Right click and Toggle. Clear out the search bar where network.dns.disableIPv6 was, and put in network.http.pipelining You should have three listings Right click on network.http.pipelining and Toggle so "true" shows for the value. Next, right click on network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and Modify, a box will pop up, replace the default 4 with 8. Close the about:config
Now test your Forefox performance. These three small changes, made a world of difference for me. Its now comparably fast as chromium. If you disagree with what I did, or want to let me know of any other "safe" speedups let me know. PS. If you don't see any improvements performance-wise or your from the future and do use IPv6, it would be best to go and take these settings back to the default Firefox settings.
When I had OpenSuSE 11.3 installed originally, I never had any slow internet connection until I erased the hard drive and went to 11.4. This is what my configuration looks like on /usr/sbin/iwconfig:
Cell 01 - Address: AA:AA:BA:BA:AB:BB Channel:11 Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11) Quality=70/70 Signal level=-37 dBm Encryption key: on ESSID:"housewifiZZZZ" .....
The device I am using is a D-Link DWA-160 which is running the ar9170usb driver (and did on the previous version)
These are the steps I did: Disable IPv6 from the global tab on Network Settings. Set DHCP version 4 only in dynamic address in address tab. Used the anti-IPv6 switches in firefox making these changes Network.dns.disableIPv6 change from false to true Network.http.pipelining change from false to true Network.http.pipelining.maxrequests change from 4 to 8 Added ipv6.disable=1 in DEFAULT_APPEND in Bootloader (I couldn't find bootloader _APPENDS that was stated in another forum)
Switched from ifup to NetworkManager for Network Setup Method. Reinstalled OpenSuSE 11.4 with Ubuntu 11.04 (to see if it was OS issue) and it still didn't work, so I switched back to OpenSuSE 11.4. Is there anything I did wrong or do I need to do anything additional?
I have installed Wubi (Ubuntu 10.10) recently. It takes more time to boot than Windows. But my main concern is that my browsing speed is much slower compared to that on Windows 7. How can this be resolved?
I just installed openSuse11.4 KDE in dual boot with Win7. I have observed that Firefox can open websites but in contrast to this, whenever I try to install rekonq web browser (thats because I find Firefox the slowest browser presently available on earth), Yast says about 593 MB of data to be downloaded and installed. It starts with 3.2 KB/s (or even lesser) speed and further decreases to about 1.3KB/s speed and then ... just stops there (waited for 2-3 hours for downloading just 4-5 MB of data).
For some reason Firefox loads pages really slow on my 11.3 install. Chrome everything loads fast. I am running the latest of firefox.I have done the usual tweaks to the about:config that I found on the internet. Is there a reason for this and can I fix it?
When browsing at the main page of [URL] firefox uses 100% of my CPU capacity. I have the flashblock addon installed, which allows me to control whether embedded flash applications are run or not, so it is not due to flash.
I have installed the latest released version of openSUSE, 10.3 or so, and I am having an issue getting the internet to work. The system tells me that I am connected to my wireless network, but firefox does not browse, indicating that it cannot find the network. I'm totally stumped because if my wireless network is connected, why can't I browse?
