Extremely slow here. Win 7 Ultimate running Firefox 25.0. Just started today. I ran Firefox after loading my VPN (East Coast server) and pages loaded fast as usual. Turned off VPN and pages went back to unusably slow.

Yep, when I do test from anywhere else it works fine. But from any east coast area it takes forever to load.

Down in Florida it's been slow for over 24 hours. A lot of partial page loads. I had just updated to Firefox 25 and the newest Flash, so I was wondering if I had an issue in the upgrade. Seems lots of people are having the issue, though.

Here in Westminster, SoCal, verizon high speed business, speed is often painfully slow, it has been intermittent tho, slower than fast, about 20 percent of the time it's okay but not speedy as usual.

Graphics are slowing things down a bit, but there's a huge speed loss for newer content, new topics and the latest entries in topics. Reminds me of when a database needs to be re-indexed, as retrieval seems at a data level, not just a general server/internet issue.

I'm using wired internet at 25/25, winxp, 4gb laptop, 320gb drive w/195gb free, I've cleared the cashes/history for IE, Chrome and Firefox, and during the last 6 hours have not had any other speed issues.

I've tried PingPlotter and an getting consistent 34-38 on round trips.

Fred, how would you like the traces and duration set, and what email should I send full traces...

I still have not figure out the issue.
The server load is low and there is nothing in the logs that could explain the slowdown for some members.
So, we are removing the server from being the culprit.

It could be a browser issue (Firefox and Chrome just had an update).
However, I have tested the site with all browsers and the pages are loading fast as usual. (west coast)...
...so, I am leaning to believe it's a network issue since most having the issue are from the East Coast.
I'm still investigating.

Seems like East Coast for some reason is affected by this problem. I'm from Rhode Island and since yesterday FM is very hard to navigate. Everything load super slow on three browsers IE,Chrome and FF, also on Ipad with Safari browser and Android phone with Opera browser. Some pages load only half way, some don't at all, some need to be refresh 5 times before page show up.

To muddle things just a bit more, I'm also on the east coast and have not noticed any of the slowness that some users are suffering. I'm using the latest build of chrome on an iMac (page loads in less than 3 seconds), Safari and chrome on a MacBook Air (page loads in about 1 second), as well as safari on iPhone and iPad updated to the latest version of iOS. Running AdBlock but no Flash. My ISP is Cox- see speedtest result below. Cellular LTE also loads fast for me on the AT&T network.

East coast here on Comcast running latest edition of OSX and Safari; no VPN. FM loads in two seconds even with ad blockers in place. Still, however, I am unable to pull up any but my last feedback post.

Still battling a serious problem here on the east coast It seems that Verizon and Comcast (and possibly other providers) seem to have some overloaded servers at the 152.xx.xx.xxx prefixes. These were the most obvious that I could locate using this freeware to trace my routes (Windows) to FM as well as other sites:

http://www.pingplotter.com/freeware.html

If anybody else wants to check this, maybe we can narrow it down and at least provide our ISP's with the relevant data. I have already posted in the Verizon Fios forum to see if I can get some help there.

Here's my trace from 5 minutes ago:

I think that when FM is slow, it's usually due to the ad servers. Fred might want to do some diagnostics there and consider talking with the ad-serving companies or consider alternatives if that checks out as the problem.
