Browsing DeviantArt & Pixiv

Unread post by hujan86 » 2021-04-30, 04:22

Since Pale Moon slows down considerably as I browse sites Deviant Art & Pixiv for long periods (more so when I open links on the sites to new tabs), are there any settings that can be set either via PM Commander or About:Config or both in order optimize PM's performance for both sites? Or are the only option for me is to use Chrome, Chromium-based browsers or Firefox?

I have no real issues with Pixiv.
Can't say about DeviantArt as I don't use it.
However I use the native user agent, so maybe I'm being served the mobile version?

Don't know for pixiv, but aside from DA shitty coding, it is possible that there is also issue with WebSockets(which was hopefully completely resolved only recently UXP #1767).

Pixiv causes me no problems with the Native user agent. You may however want to consider Pixiv Moe, an open source, lightweight version of the Web site.

I have encountered a problem on Pixiv that sometimes Pale Moon loads their images significantly slower than Firefox/Chrome, but the reason remains unclear. I will submit a bug report once I understand its root cause. Nevertheless, the images will load, and the site remains functional.
