a few things to think about...- adsafeprotected seems to have loading issues- some ad providers (could not determine which) are doing tls handshakes- google-analytics is being called constantly - could be the tls issue

There is a memory leak somewhere related to the ads (script issue maybe?). After 2-3 games, FF consumes 3.5G+ of memory and needs to be shut down. Clearing cache has no effect. Blocking images has no effect.  Minimal cpu and memory is being used by all other apps on my machine.  No new software nor any recent updates on my side.Whatever recent change you made is causing issues.

I'm not seeing that same behavior here in Firefox on your same network. It may be tied to a particular ad that is being served to you, which may serve different dynamic content each time. Can you email a screenshot or photo showing all 3 ad units when google-analytics is being called constantly to forum@videopoker.com ? I might be able to track that ad down and block it.

Also curious if you see the same behavior in Chrome.

I'm not seeing the behavior at all now. I know I did miss one or two draws in the 7-star tourney due to delays caused by ad loading. I don't use chrome - I don't want google embedded all over my machine. And, I don't like that it resets its task schedules even after I've disabled them.

Now that you've turned ads back on, game play is once again horrible. I missed at least 3 plays by inadvertently hitting the draw/deal button
one too many times due to the significant ad loading lag times and not knowing if the game received my click. Waiting 5+ seconds for ads to finish rendering is acceptable?The delays, interruptions and wait times make this site unusable for non-paying members.
