It may be beyond your control. The most popular websites will attract more traffic, and unless the website owner invests in more hardware to cope with it, those pages will open relatively slowly compared to others.

The problem can be particualrly bad at peak times when most of the world (especially the USA as the largest internet user) is at home in the evening.

If there was anything wrong at your end it would affect every single website you visited.

Yeah, It might be the websites or the elements on the websites like adds and flash. I would use adblocker or some other blocking add-on to allow the content to load quicker.

All the add-ons are optional...so you just include the ones that you want. You can disable them and add them back to see which one is causing the conflict
