    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    We have no way to know what your site use has been or what you have installed on your computer. But the two principal causes of poor and/or slow site load, which would generate a warning message to that effect, are 1) full cache/outdated cookies and 2) incompatible extensions.

    The particular behavior you mention suggests the latter is more likely. For completeness, though, and to get a good baseline for site operation, it's worth clearing your cache and cookies for the site then closing your browser, rebooting, and reopening your browser.

    If these don't resolve the problem, feel free to return.
    To check for add-on or extension interference, open your browser in Private or safe mode. That will disable all extensions, so if the site loads quickly and well in that mode then you know the problem is with something you've installed. It'll take process of elimination to determine which one(s) to disable for the site.
