Slowness?

just wondering - web access has been sluggish most of the day - sometimes its normal, other times it seems to take a long time to find the site. anybody else having these symptoms or is it something i need to look at my end? i've done the usual, rebooted, cleared dns cache etc.

Slowness?

Not just you, I just entered the Community Support forum and Firefox's Extended Status Bar extension is very telling:

Loaded:130KB @ 5.17KB/s Time:00:26secs

That's nearly 30 seconds for one page...

One fact I learnt, years ago at Uni, was that waiting for more than 14secs for a page to load meant people browsed away. This was before domestic 'high speed' broadband was widely available, so possibly the figure is now even lower.
