Nope, no add-ons.

Either javascript is turned off, or it just doesn't support/recognize it all, then? ..... that browser might predate a lot of the current functionality in js, which might explain slowness; the browser may be trying to parse javascript newer than whatever version it was built to recognize.

That's crazy.

From wikipedia's Firefox 2 article:

Quote:
Firefox 2.x was end-of-lifed in December, 2008.[14] With roughly 26 months of support, only Firefox 3.6 was supported longer. The Gecko 1.8.1 browser core continued to receive patches for projects such as Camino, K-Meleon, and SeaMonkey, even after official Firefox releases had ceased.

By 2011, the 1.8.1 core had become obsolete, as major websites dropped support for it[15] by employing newer technologies for presentation and complex scripting.[16][17] The latter can be resource-intensive with the older core, and users stuck with it should use NoScript[18] to avoid issues with scripts that take too long to process (at the cost of losing some or all site features beyond basic functionality).
It sounds like this could very well explain the slowness you've mentioned. Either try NoScript, or can you perhaps grab Chrome and give it a go to see how it behaves?

Yesterday, I had ads. Today I don't. Go figure.

I just turned off Add Block Plus. I now have adds. If they are this discreet, I will leave it off, just for the sake of the site .

Yup. I do believe that "discreet/non-intrusive ads" is definitely the intention.

oh, very, VERY much so. Definitely, 100%.
Discreet, non-intrusive, and site-appropriate (no adult ads, no gross "shock" ads, etc...).

They are a necessary evil, but they will not take over the pages.

There is a newer version of AdBlock Plus: AdBlock Ultimate for Firefox. I've been testing it out over the last few days or so . . . works pretty decent. And very easy to toggle between enabling and disabling on individual sites.

Is there any update on the Forum Runner issue? I would like to be able to use the app again if possible.

Not yet, and PPE is on vacation for the next week or two -- He will be checking in as often as possible, though, so please bear with us
