    Try to remove the two .blob files in your steam folder Ben and restart steam afterwards. If that doesnt work reinstall the whole forum!

    :)

    I think he means the RD forum. I am also using Firefox and also find it somewhat slow lately.
    It usually brings the header of the page up quickly, and then can take a while before more info is shown on the page.
    This is my work comp, so no steam stuffies to delete here

    I am not sure if it is "mega fast". I would love to hear the input form others. Any improvements? I have a few other things to try.

    It's currently much better for me now, back to normal again. Hope it stays this way.
