Site Laggy/Hangs in Firefox

    As of maybe a month or so ago THW became consistently laggy for me... but only in Firefox (Chrome and Edge on my computer have no issues). I didn't notice exactly when this happened so I'm not sure if it coincided with some Firefox update. I have cleared my FF cache and force reloaded the site (ctrl+F5) but haven't reinstalled the browser. As for what I mean by 'laggy':

    • Scrolling is pretty jumpy, especially when moving across posts that use JASS boxes or images
    • Typing in text boxes occasionally freezes the whole tab for 1-2 seconds. Hitting a carriage return nearly always causes this lag once the text box is big enough (has enough lines?). This is in the 'quick reply' box at the bottom of a thread; the 'Create thread' page seems to be immune to this freeze.
    • Opening or closing a [hidden] button freezes the whole tab for 2-3 seconds every time (no exceptions on this one).

    I do not have these issues on any other site with FF. Anyone else experiencing this? Anything I should do to try to fix it? I prefer FF over Chrome.

    Site slow on firefox

    Could be a performance problem with Firefox’s new WebRender and repeating border images.

    Can confirm, there are issues from time to time.

    Chrome is a memory whore and right now I have to run my computer in single-channel RAM mode.

    @deepstrasz Are you having the same issues as me or different? Do other browsers work fine?

    I'm having the same issue. Seems to not happen when I put it in safe mode though.

    I didn't touch the site in quite a while so can't say why. I'm more leaning toward a regression in Firefox performance over time. Is your computer slow? I am running the site perfectly in a Core i7 laptop from 2014.

    Absolutely not slow by any measure; I wouldn't post something like this if I thought my hardware was in any way at fault. Nothing has changed with my hardware and it was definitely fine in Firefox earlier this summer.

    I have the same problem. For some reason Firefox is unable to render the leaf border properly. Removing it with this script make the site usable again.
