    I never use IE for visiting gur3d b'coz firstly, it loads too slow for me in IE as compared to firefox, secondly i don't get these annoying problems like trojans, spyware etc. when using firefox. However, i'm experiencing a strange problem here. The problem is whenever i visit the guru forums, firefox stops responding for a couple of seconds and then it gets back to normal. This happens every 10 minutes, i don't know what the problem might be, coz it's only happening on the guru forums. I use avast professional (cracked :( ), the system is clean, but since virus cleaners are a bit too heavy for my system, so i removed it last week to get extra speed.

    Anyone here experiencing this issue as well ???

    try disableing some extensions .. might help ...

    have u changed anything in about:config?


    EDIT:
    run
    - cwshredder
    - spybot search&destroy
    - spywareblaster
    - avert stinger
    - ad-aware


    might help ... also go to tools --> options --> privacy , and clear things like cookies, history, cache and all the stuff ...

    set: "keep cookies until i close firefox" ... for sites u want to save cookies from ... exept them from the cookie filter

    tis a small gecko bug with handling a bit of css
    As this is a w3c compliant code, it should be up to mozilla to fix it
    Unfortunatly they've known about it for more than a year and done nothing
    I use the old style forums, they work better.
