I didn't want to speak too soon but after my last post on 31st December I switched browser and no problems on my phone with login requests since. (Never had the problem on my tablet or PC). It's a Samsung phone and I was using the default Samsung Internet app. I'm now using Chrome trouble free. I don't know if it was the delete cookies on exit option mentioned as I couldn't find how to change that setting anywhere. Maybe the default changed or a glitch appeared in one of the software updated. Anyway all solved with Chrome.

Just logged in with edge for the first time on my Samsung phone, and it's working as fast as it does on chrome.

I'm still using Chrome, had to log in again this morning and then had to wait for ages before I could access the first topic. Switching between topics usually means a bit of a wait as well. I really don't know what I can do to improve things my end so will just try to be patient. When I contributed to a topic a few days ago I thought I was going to lose my post as it took ages to load but it did in the end.

I sometimes find that posts do not load immediately, however I find that hitting submit again usually works.

Still painfully slow to load for me as well on laptop, desktop and phone - using Chrome, but just tried using Edge; still painfully slow, so it doesn't seem to be a browser problem.

I've had the repeated login request, now seemingly solved, but not the slow speed.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but has anyone else noticed that the speed problem seems to be affecting mainly women?

:lol:

There must be a common denominator. I use MS Edge on my laptop, and I've seen another poster say they have no problems with slowness on that browser. I'm also experiencing this slowness issue on my iPad and iPhone.

I was just wondering, could it be linked to our ISP - I'm with Virgin, so I wonder if any other of the people experiencing slowness are with this provider.

Next time I go out I will test this theory, by trying to log in on my phone when I'm on 4G (it might take a day or 2, as I'm not going out so much at present)

Could the slowness be down to the individual's broadband speed, or their wi-fi strength?

Just tried that, Gill. Still moving at a glacial pace.

As I think it started at about the same time for all of us (2-3 weeks ago, at a guess), none of us had had a problem before, plus no problems with other websites, that seems unlikely. Anyway, my download speed and wi-fi strength are both fine. Even Cruisecritic, one of the slower loading sites I use, is fairly speedy.

Nothing has changed on this site in the last two or three weeks that would cause slow loading of pages and if it did it would affect all users.

I would be more inclined to think that this is something local, such as a browser update, OS update.

Have you tried doing a hard refresh of your browser?

Just done that - still painfully slow, but thanks for the suggestion.

Strange but it has never resulted in a duplicate for me. Occasionally I get the message about a previous post that proves to be mine but I then do not go ahead with my duplicate.

The message about your previous post is one of timing and demonstrates that your post had been done correctly yet the follow up display of same has a time lapse problem - ish.

+++ from above

It may be due to the Festive period, one's Internet provider may have servers that have become clogged up due to a lack of routine maintenance, if so it will start to clear next week.

ps ... I am using BT / Fibre Optic connection so slow should not be on the menu.

Moby, I too am on BT/ Fibre Optic connection and enjoy speedy connections on every other site I go on. This still remains a mystery.

One problem over the festive period, and to some extent at weekends, is that the idiots who like to try and attack sites and cause mayhem become more proactive as there are less around to monitor the servers and take remidial action.

I've had no issue since switching to bog standard Chrome on my phone. Curiously I've never had any on my tablet using the default Samsung browser on my tablet, the browser I've switched away from on the phone.. I firmly now suspect something I've yet to find in the browser settings.

Indeed it is for me. It still takes an age to load the page and also to change topics. I am fresh out of ideas. It's only wishing to read Sue's Iona cruise reviews that keep me trying.

As this is not a problem for everyone then it becomes very difficult to track it down. Because it is localised then I suspect that there is some common denominator with the devices and/or connection being used, but not knowing that it is impossible to suggest a solution.

Are we talking about new machines here? Are peoples using registry cleaning software to clear cookies etc?

I had an iPad which was desperately slow and did not even show the option to accept cookies from this site. Thankfully that has now gone but I now have a new machine and everything runs beautifully. As for Apple iPads never again!
We're out! :clap:
