You should install an Ad Blocker. I do that at home, but I have the same problem at work and I can’t install anything like that without permission and I don’t think my IT guy or boss would appreciate me asking so I can seamlessly browse WeddingBee here haha. It is super annoying though, I agree. I notice that some days it’s fine and some days are impossible so I just stay away on the bad days because I get too impatient.

I’d get a good Ad Blocker — I’ve never had an issue with any ads on WB!

Chrome was my saving grace. IE the whole page would freeze.

I have to use chrome or firefox – otherwise it freezes for me too.

Adblock plus. It’s free for Chrome & Firefox. I don’t suggest anyone use IE anyway.

sheslovely:  I’m at work and use Firefox. Our versions are awful, though… and at least once a day I get something that crashes and makes “working” not very productive. My own fault, but it’s a good distraction!

I use IE at work for some of out internal webpages… the most recent release is so bad!

sheslovely:  No worries. I have created a ticket for our tech team related to this issue. I’m not sure what their schedule is like over the holidays, but hopefully someone will be able to look into it soon. 🙂

My work has like everything blocked, and when they try to play, that shockwave player thing crashes and freezes my entire computer. Oh its fun.

Hyperventilate:. I use adblock plus and chrome, and I’ve never had an issue with weddingbee since.
