Is BON causing your browser to crash?

Let me state up top that I know that this would be a sbnation.com issue and not a specific BON issue, but before contacting sbnation directly, I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same issues I am.

Out of the blue, my browser has started to crash fairly frequently over the past couple of weeks, and by trial and error, I am very confident that BON is what is causing the crashes.

My browser is Firefox 3.5.5 (the most recent release), and I am running the most recent version of Apple's OS (Snow Leopard).  I typically browse with 3+ tabs open at a time, with BON usually occupying one of the tabs.  Once the crashes start, not loading BON in a tab stops the crashing.  The crashes tend to come shortly after a BON refresh.

Refreshing BON much more often than not does not cause a crash, but what I am guessing is that BON has so many different moving parts when loading that even one of the moving parts stalling/failing causes the crash.

Here is an incomplete list of what loads at the same time BON loads -- these URLs are taken from the "Transferring data from . . ." in the bottle left corner of Firefox as a page loads.  This list is incomplete as I saw a number of other URLs which loaded too quickly for me to write them down accurately:

  • kaltura.com
  • backtype.com
  • specificmedia.com
  • doubleclick.com
  • 2mdn.net
  • sitemeter.com
  • sbnation.com
  • glam.com
  • athetixnation.com
  • tremormedia.com
  • adnxs.com
  • yieldmanager.com
  • google-analytics.com
  • llnwd.net
  • advertising.com
  • quickserve.com
  • pointroll.com
  • voicefive.com
  • pulse360.com
  • austinpost.com

That's a hell of a lot of that needs to load properly to ensure smooth browsing or fast page-loading.

So is anyone else experiencing similar performance issues recently when visiting BON?
