Extreme Slowness Inside Dashboard (2 posts)

    I'm on WP 2.9.2, I still remember the days when navigation within wp-admin does not involve java(?) and it was fast.

    For some unknown reason, I keep experiencing extreme slowness while doing tasks that involve any screen changes while posting, searching, editing or opening new tabs withing the Admin dashboard.

    The pauses/hangs would last about a minute between the time when I see the screen, and until I can actually do stuff within that screen.

    Because of this, a post that can take 15 minutes to complete can take an hour or more, if it involves going through old posts to add stuff to the current post.

    What can I do to fix this? I'm on the latest Firefox.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    And the Admin area uses JavaScript - not Java. :-)
