If you can find a "Fit-to-Width" option, I might switch to FF. Opera has it and I have been using it for many, many years..

Dunner,
You lost me on that "Fit-to-Width," so I fired up Opera and saw where it was in the View GUI. In FF I use the Command+ (CTRL+ in Windows) to increase or decrease the screen size for my viewing pleasure. Let me know if that is similar to "Fit-to-Width," please. I'm not that familiar with Opera.

Opera Fit-to-width makes it so that no matter what size font or "Page Zoom" you use, the whole page is displayed on the screen. No need to use the scroll bar at the bottom. It can be found in Opera Preferences, Webpages or Ctrl F12. Try it, you might like it. Also with Opera, the + and – keys control the page size. The Astrix key returns it to 100%. You can also drag a button to either the top or bottom bars for instant control of Fit-to-Width. The only thing about Opera is that some sites don't recognize it as an supported browser. Not really a problem as most work anyway.

I am a dedicated user of this site and will do what is needed to remain here, so I have downloaded Foxfire and now have my iRV2 zipping along again.

My concern is for those that are more casual visitors. I hate to lose them over this issue. This is not a small problem and I hope someone is truly working on it.

Here is what I have found if it is any help...
I am working exclusively on WinXP both at home and work
3 different desktop computers, 2 different networks
All of them run IE8
All of the run Norton
All of them are fully updated.
My account has Side Ads OFF
All of them are UNACCEPTABLY SLOW on iRV2
It appears that they may also be running slower on other forum type sites but not as slow as iRV2.
It does not appear to be a download time issue, but some type of processing problem.

We can continue to blame this on WinXP and IE8 and older browsers but that won't solve the problem of losing member activity which we all rely on to increase our knowledge.

Please keep working to resolve this. iRV2 is BY FAR the best site on the internet for camping related technical information and friendship.

It would be nice if the problem could be singled out. Is it IE8 or is it the Forum? It does not appear that anyone knows the final answer. Your very first paragraph eludes to FF not having the problem that all your other assets running IE8 have. That still does not indicated what the problem really is.

One can do a Google search on "IE8 running slow" and get many hits that go back several years. There is one specific find regarding a DLL that may not be loaded properly as the culprit, but again some say it works, some say it doesn't work.

There sure are millions of coded lines to these programs. Any line could be a culprit.

I use a MAC with FF, Safari, Opera and Chrome. My personal preference is FF. I don't have a problem with speed in any of the programs I run.

Just sayin'.

A WAG says one or more of the many ads are/is causing it.

I have also seen where a number of members who are having the problem with irv2 running slowly state that they are also running Norton. I'm wondering if maybe Norton is doing something in the background while the ads are loading that is slowing things down or if maybe there is a setting in IE or Norton that maybe needs tweaking.

Just throwing that out there.

I've heard of Norton causing problems for many years. I still have Norton Utilities .1 on a 360K floppy. A lot of 0s and 1s have probably fallen off the disc and it won't it probably work anymore. I used to love his programs. I was able to go down to the bit level and change the value.

I wish they'd try turning off some of the ads for a day or just an hour, to see if it helps or fixes the problem.

That floppy was probably left over from before Peter Norton sold the company to Symantec and retired.

In my little electronics closet here is a 5-1/4" floppy, and on the shelf above my computer is a portable 3-1/2" floppy drive. I can use either one at any time - I just can't seem to get rid of the 5-1/2", and I think I have a few floppys stashed away. Talk about the 1's and 0's about being gone, whew!

I do run Norton's on all my computers and laptops and yes it has been known to slow down a few things. I'll stay with Norton's versus the alternative of having nothing.

One of his first works. Aways better than PC Tools. Although I liked both.

Dunner, just to put things in perspective, Peter Norton sold the company to Symantec in 1990. That's nearly 23 years ago! How old do ya feel now?

And, yes, I really liked the original Norton Utilities and his subsequent offerings. After they were bought out by Symantec it became bloated along with the price tag.
