      Re-installing Firefox didn't help, I think it must be a browser issue. A shame because Firefox has been brilliant, I don't want to use anything else!
      I have had this issue with Firefox and tend to find that every few weeks i will use a program called Firetune which basically speeds things back up rather then doing a uninstall and reinstall.

      The other choice is try and use K-Meleon whcih i find is MUCH MUCH quicker than firefox.

      Hope this helps anyone would still love to know why it is firefox only started acting this way once i moved over to Sky?

      FireFox has had a few problems with the last 2 or 3 upgrades, they have made things worse instead of better. I have the idea that most of their work is going into FireFox3 and version 2 is just being kept going until 3 is ready for general release.

      I'll give K-meleon a try and see how it compares

      thanks for the tip, firetune did what all the recommended speed hacks failed to do.

      Re: Slow page loading times

      Hi all,

      I've been having really slow speeds for the past day or two now and I'm getting fed up.

      This isn't just for loading pages in Firefox, this is for everything. Check http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results/id/12098316954155884104.html] these speed test results. What I don't get though, is that my router says its connected at 3MB down and 448kbs up, which is about the norm for it (connect package btw).

      I've tried resetting it a couple of times, but it makes no difference. Any thoughts on what could be going on?

      GunForHire - please change your profile as it states you are on base at the moment.
      the speed issue could be down to throttling (by BT) / bad profile (if you use an extention, it may have triggered a change in your profile, which takes upto 3 day to correct) or a wireless issue

      Re: Slow page loading times

      Sorry about that, updated it now, haven't been on here in quite a while.

      I haven't been doing any heavy downloading for quite a while, so I don't know why my connection would be getting throttled. As for the extention, I've not changed anything on the hardware front or with my account, and I'm using a wired connection to the router.

      Re: Slow page loading times

      are you plugged into the master socket or a extention (master socket is normally by the front door/front room)
