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:
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?
