Dont have any problems on any other site or forum....it takes my computer forever to open a right click window on this site (to open a new tab for a thread)...and switching between tabs of this site is also slow....i can have 20 tabs open of this site...and 20 of another site and the right click and tab switching on the other sites works fine...
and all the automatic refreshing is a pain..

See my thread about this from a few weeks back.. the answer is that it firefox grabs massive amounts of memory/CPU time to load the menu system - and the new site isn't optimised for that. In fact, it's one of the worst I've come across. It seems like no more work is being done on it by the site designers here.
In the meantime as a workaround I'm using IE (It's the *only* site the I use IE for) and it runs at normal speed. I'm hoping that firefox 2.0 (due for release soonish) will handle it better. The upgrade is supposed to have addressed some of the excess memory usage issues.
Let us know if you find out anything else..

we are trying to optimize all.
Do you have the same problem on e.g. http://www.kitecommunity.com
Dave, keep me informed if the new Firefox changed something.
