Slows Down Everything

Recommended Posts

Been wondering why sites are so slow to load, and the MB Browser Guard is the culprit. Disabled add-ons one by one and this is it. bbc.co.uk/news takes almost a minute to load, with everything unchecked on Browser Guard, whereas it loads almost immediately without Browser Guard being activated. Slows down browsing everywhere so much as to be unusable. A real shame as it blocked so many unwanted tracking and surveillance items, but can no longer use it. Very sad!

I'm not doubting your results at all.

I'm just noting that with MBG Firefox enabled on my Win 10 laptop BBC news loads in a second or so. MBG protections all checked or all unchecked makes no difference for me.
(I also have AdBlock extension active in Firefox).

Are you in the UK?

I am, and the only thing that MBG is currently blocking on BBC.co.uk\news for me is "static.chartbeat.com".

There may be some other issue/conflict with MBG and something else that you are using?

EDIT - Disabling AdBlock does make BBC news slower to fully load here.
The front page still comes up quickly, but it's loading things in the background for another 20 seconds or so.
