Not sure if there’s a connection, but since this update my FF is WAY slower, hanging on loading pages with 3rd party ad servers. crwdcntrl.net seems to be the common theme.

Agreed, this new 49.0.2 has slowed my Face book down to dead slow… and you can forget games…

Everyone says use chrome… Not on your spyware life. Chrome like windows 10 will NEVER be allowed on this computer. Got enough spam hitting it now as it is.

After nearly 40 years, im ready to just pull the plug on all of it…

Did you try the PC hosts edit file-that might help kill those nasty bugs that keep following you.

Turns out there were some big DOS events going on most of today that slowed some traffic. Seems all better now.

I heard on the radio news they called it DDOS. A much bigger attack then regular DOS.
