Btw, something like this also happens when I do Gmail in IE7 on my T30 laptop (1.8GHz but 7 years old), but with Chrome it's fine.

From what I see at this company, I think they are all external linked. But again, it's FM8 that's slow. FM7.2 is fine, on this machine (I tried the FM7.2 demo, and then after a couple of hour's work realized it didn't save anything...). >> In my opinion, there's nothing in this world beats a '52 Vincent and a redheaded girl." -- Richard Thompson Yes, my wife's redheaded. Is that supposed to make FM run faster? (Don't know what a Vincent is.) >> Same thing happens to me with FM 8..when the Hypertext dialog box is open... Hypertext dialog box is not open. But that's an idea, maybe I should close some things, other FM dial boxes, background apps.
