Has anyone else had problems loading the BGG site with Firefox in the last few days? I installed no-script tonight and found it was caused by googleadservices.com. I have tried IE, Opera, and Firefox, and only Firefox has the long load times.

I temporarily disabled NoScript to see if I could recreate what you're seeing. I'm not seeing any slowness with those js files though. I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.14 on OS X 10.4.

I have WinXP, Firefox 3.0b5, and NoScript 1.6.4 blocking both googleadservices.com and google-analytics.com, and have no problems with speed. The site response comes and goes but it's usually fine.

I noticed the slowness, too. I use the latest Firefox and don't know what NoScript is. The front page takes about 40 seconds to load because of google ads and google analytics. The other pages don't take quite so long--less ads, I guess.

It's so annoying sometimes, watching the line of ads across the top of the page do a slow-mo move across the screen, that I just say "forget it" and leave.

Maybe no one else notices it, maybe no one will see this post. But I didn't want Levi to think he was crazy!

It only happens on one of my 3 computers, all the same Firefox and NoScript versions. I'm guessing its due to the custom Windows updates that I choose for each machine.
