    I would love to know the answer to this, as well as I’m dealing with the same issue.

    Hello, unfortunately I’m not yet very familiar with how Elementor has implemented its integration with Font Awesome. I would like to be able to provide feedback to them to help improve it, though, if I can get a better understanding about your situation.

    I’d need more detail about what you’re experiencing. It’s also possible that @emmasprinkle and @smishra are experiencing different problems.

    Specifically, here are some questions I have:

    1. When you say “slowing down website”: do you mean that your browser feels slow when you’re actually using the Elementor page builder with Font Awesome enabled? Or are you saying that web pages that have been built with Elementor, saved, and loaded through the front end of your site (i.e. by non-admin users, just viewing the page normallly) is slower? Or are you experiencing slowness in some other way?

    2. Do you have an example site that shows the problem?

    3. Do you happen to know whether, when Font Awesome is integrated into Elementor, it’s using the SVG/JavaScript technology, and if so, whether pseudo-elements support is enabled? You could discover this by opening the JavaScript console in your browser and typing “FontAwesomeConfig”. If Font Awesome’s SVG/JavaScript framework is loaded, this will show you its configuration, and if you expand it, you’ll see a property called “searchPseudoElements”, which will be true or false.

    Without some further insight into what is causing the slow experience, though, it’s hard to know whether using this plugin would help to improve performance.

    @mlwilkerson I have analyzed webpage with google pagespeed insights tool and found that the actual issue is not speed, but it is showing an “efficient cache policy” needed with a file of Font Awesome.

    how to sort out this issue .
