I completely agree and it has gotten even worse now that there are video ads to contend with.

I had that happen to me a couple of years ago. It turned out that it helped a lot to abandon Explorer and go to Firefox. Give it a try and see if you get an improvement.

The server is slow, need to upgrade. i have no problem with ads but at the very least put a server farm in that will support the ads.

The new edge browser in Win 10 is pretty fast, testing that. I use either Chrome on Windows or Safari on Mac currently.

My problem is that *#@&^ "Forest River Newsletter" that pops up when I'm trying to log in and cancels out my log in so I have to start over again. That is a real PIA. I even signed up for the thing for a while just to see what it was about, and it still kept coming and interrupting my log-in.

I also use Firefox and add blocker but what will help you the most is bring up the forum and then what I chose to save for a favorite is welcome mat. So now when I go to my favorites on Firefox click on welcome mat and bingo no advertisements ever. Goes right to that topic. Later RJD

I only use the Firefox browser and don't notice any lag or issues. (Always stay up on updates for everything from your O/S to browsers to Adobe and even Java as they often fix issues like this.)

I started having trouble with Firefox, and loaded Google Chrome. Both are good, and gives you the choice of your default browser.
