ps on Windows machines you will find it at: C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc
Yep, that worked for me too

Re: Slow Page Loading

Works for me too - Firefox 21 on Windows 7. Yet to do it on my Firefox 29 PC. Thanks msponer.

From your comment "this makes your browser fail the javascript fetch immediately", does that mean the link to cdn.cruisersforum.com does not work and this just stops the delay while the browser tries it?

Yes -- it eliminates the delay by giving the browser an immediate, final error, instead of an infinite loop of server requests that takes some browsers tens of seconds to figure out, and others never figure it out and instead freeze up.

This is super easy for them to fix, and so there's no need to keep this in your hosts file forever or worry about long term implications of hacks in your computers configuration.

Re: Slow Page Loading

This should be sorted.

Re: Slow Page Loading

Does FrankZ's post below mean it has been sorted or is it a plea for it to be sorted? There was an extended down time for the site earlier and it may be that was to allow some software mods. Whatever, nothing's changed and I'm still using Chrome because FF28 takes too long.

Re: Slow Page Loading

That part appears to be fixed for me. With my non tweaked (as above) Firefox 29 PC on Windows 7, I don't see the cdn.cruisersforum.com message anymore. However the site is still slow. It takes about 10 seconds or more for every page.

I have identified the main part where the delay now happens. Firefox displays it's progress at the foot of the page. When a link is clicked, a few messages fly past, and then it displays "Waiting on www.cruisersforum.com" which stays there for 6 or 7 seconds. Then another few messages fly past too quickly to read and the page is loaded.

I hope this will point someone in the right direction to identify the cause.

Note. I am using mobile broadband which is a bit slow, but CF is still slower than just about any site I access.

Re: Slow Page Loading

Mine isn't quite as slow as you say your Win 7/FF 29 system is but CF is certainly not fast. It is just less slow than it used to be. I don't seem to have any delay on other sites, even other forums.

Perhaps it is just using a slow server somewhere.

No, the redirect loop is still there. Line 13 of their root page. So keep the dirty 'hosts' hack on if this was affecting you.

There are a lot more technical details wrong with this site. Ghostery will significantly speed it up if it is blocking ads, trackers, and social plugins. There might be a karmic debt to that.

The server is also slow. Nerds are expensive and sites like this can have trouble justifying the cost to fix it.

Re: Slow Page Loading

I inadvertently let Firefox update to FF29 this am but the site is still too slow for me but it's quite snappy with Chrome so I'll continue using that for the forum. It's no trouble but it's a shame they can't get the site to be faster.

Re: Slow Page Loading

It's working fine for me now - no unreasonable delays.

Whoever investigated and made the change ... thank you.

Re: Slow Page Loading

Just tried FF29 again and it's as fast as Chrome now so some more changes have been made I think. I'm still running with the Hosts file change and I'll leave that for now. Thanks to all and especially whoever made the recent changes.

Re: Slow Page Loading

I've reversed the Hosts modification and FF is just as fast as Chrome now without it.
