XP home and IE7....
I also use Simple Adblock
Many webpages seem to take longer and longer to load..I don't use Twitter or Facebook but yet when I open many webpages I see down in the left hand corner of my screen while I am waiting for the webpage to load it says things like
Waiting for or downloading..."Platform.Twitter"
"Facebook" ( but it goes by so fast I can't say exactly what it says but it does include Facebook
Also see things like "Ad Yieldmanager"
and then after the page finally loads I will see something that says..."Done..but with Errors"
But the most annoying thing is on some websites they automatically have scrolling across the top of the page..and I don't know how to stop it or freeze it to prevent the annoying scrolling across constantly while I am trying to read an article.
Also please take a look at the NY Post home page which I use daily. If you scroll down a bit on the right hand side you will see where it says Videos ( see screenshot ) and as I am reading an article the screen keeps scrolling across showing the different video topics available. Extremely distracting and annoying to me. No video actually plays but the every few seconds of the changing of the videos scrolling across is what distracts me.
I have disabled Flash but yet they keep scrolling across...
Is there any setting I can make or change in IE7 to stop both the scrolling of headlines and also to stop that annoying video movement on the NY Post website?
And anything I can do to stop my pages from taking extra time to load in order to prevent that downloading of twitter platform? and facebook whatever it is downloading?
My computer/tech knowledge is extremely limited so figured I would ask here to help...I don't wish to use another browser other then IE unless I absolutely have to in order to have web pages load fast like they use to.
where that video scrolling is down a bit on the right.EDIT
Also want to mention that I have both boxes CHECKED in settings where it says Disable Script Debugging..both in IE and in other. I unchecked them to see if that helped but it didn't so I went back and checked them.
Also, I have Play Animations disabled as well but yet that video box on the NY Post homepage keeps scrolling across every few seconds showing the different videos that are available to watch
