Well you lost me at 'screenshare with Crispin via Zoom' no idea how to do that and what is an icognito window? I've loaded the Ublock Origin but that doesn't seem to make any difference. How do I open a browserin safe mode, you can probably tell from this I'm not very tech savvyChas, it might be worth doing a screenshare with Crispin via Zoom or similar, so he can see what is going on, and can dive into your browser a bit more to find settings etc that might be causing problems. Sometimes it's hard to explain things that need fixing without seeing things in person - we often end up doing this at work to fix things that are all over the world (and working with scientists doesn't always mean they can use a computer...)
Another couple of thoughts
1) Try opening an Icognito window (if you use Chrome) or a Private Window (Firefox) and then going to the website, log in and see how it goes then. Not sure if this has been suggested yet or not.
2) The other one is a bit more complicated, and is to open the browser in a safe mode which will remove any plugins (temporarily):

However, I do agree that the ads are slowing the website - but you've paid a subscription Chas, so that shouldn't be a drama. I've just tried a few pages in Chrome (a browser I don't use) with and without Ublock Origin and with Ublock Origin it loaded much quicker.
Hope all of that helps,
I agree with you Chas,I don’t even know where to log into put my password in.I’m off to bed now it is 9-30 pm here I’ll try again over the weekend.Pat.The time is not far off where I will be leaving this site, I just don't have the time or patience anymore, every time I click on something or refresh, it will take an age to get there, if it gets there at all, it defaults to 'Forum List' 90% of the time and then I have to go through the whole process again and hope it goes right, it is VERY frustrating. I also have to highlight and copy in case what I have typed disappears when it finally goes back to where I started, I've tried all the suggestions from other members but nothing has improved.
This is not a criticism, I'm sure Crispin would do something if he could find what the problem is. I'm just running out of patience.
I don't think it's an age thing Pat I would find it just as frustrating if I was 17 rather than 77. I much preferred the old system to, so you are not alone there.I used to like the old system and followed the posts of most of the folks but at 83 it’s a mission to find posts from the likes of
Clive,Chas,Dusty from Aussie,Murphy and other old timers and therefore I guess we are missing out on many interesting
yarns.Change for the sake of change doesn’t suit the older generation.Sorry Crispin but that’s how I see it.Pat from NZ
