You're not alone on this, it has been mentioned to the IT guys a number of times. I have a slow (free) Internet connection from the nursing home repeater in the gazebo and it takes quite some time before the post appears. Even those with a good signal are having issues.

I think it is time to reinstall the NoScript addon for Firefox, and block Google period.

I thought that the switch from a dedicated server to Google Cloud was supposed to cure everything.

This site has always run slow for me, but I don't think I'm having quite the same problem the rest of you are describing. It just takes a few extra seconds (5 or 10) to load each page for me.
I have adblocker add-on on my firefox browser so that helps on some sites and slows it down on others.

Running normally on 200Mbs cable internet in the Milwacky area.

So John what's the answer to the fix.. Taking 40 to 50 seconds to load a post is pretty sad....

for Firefox, the best adblocker period, is "uBlock Origin"

with that you can throw all the others away, it takes care of security also.

the IT folks are "supposed to be" working on this issue, but I think that the Google bots are part of the problem, and the advertizing that they sell, which I never see anyway. but can see the URLs scroll real fast...

on FireFox, use the 3 key sequence of Shift-Control-E to turn on a Network analyzer to see what is taking so long to load....

then post a screen shot of that on the VerticalScope help thread.

we need to lambast them over the head, this is not acceptable.

I wish that our internet was that good, when we left Phoenix AZ we had Cox Cable in the days when 50Mbps was the hottest ticket in town.

now I am in a rural area and have copper wire again with a Modem
