Every time I click on a link to anything, Dogster seizes up, my entire browser locks up for 7-8 seconds until Dogster sorts itself out.

I want to browse the forums but I can't even do that really, this is really terrible. No other sites respond like this and I've of course tried clearing cache/cookies/history/etc.

see if your firewall might be blocking some of the adverts. I am not sure what your computer specs are so I cannot help you further unless you give me more info. You are more than welcome to paw mail me.

Seems to have been browser-specific as well as site-specific (no other website acts like this). I can't use Firefox, but I can use IE (I don't really like to, but...that's another story). IE freezes up when I try to close a tab, but that's not really a huge issue, and it doesn't bind up anywhere near as bad as when Firefox tries to load a Dogster page.

I do have an ad-blocker installed on Firefox - might that be the issue?

Could be! there are a lot of adverts on here. I have been using Chrome! I like it because there is built in spell check. Apparently though there are times I have to be smarter than the spell checker go figure!

I tried out Chrome for awhile, wasn't to my liking. I have to say, needing to use IE to load this website has been a real PITA since it has no spellchecker...never realized how much I rely on it, hehe. I'll try disabling the adblocker sometime.

Actually, I used to have this problem too on IE. I switched to Firefox, and it stopped. I don't have any blockers installed, so that might be it.
