Could add-ons be affecting my browsing experience?
Add-ons/extensions can affect your browsing experience by causing your computer to stop responding. Most add-ons require your permission before they are installed, however, some may be installed without your knowledge if the add-on was part of another program.
Because of this, you may want to disable all add-ons/extensions to see if that solves any problems you are experiencing with the Photobucket site.
The steps to do this are different for each browser:
- Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/187443
- Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-or-remove-add-ons
- Internet Explorer: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17447/windows-internet-explorer-11-manage-add-ons
- Microsoft Edge: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/apps_windows_10-msedge/how-to-install-and-use-extensions-in-microsoft/2b0082d7-966d-43d4-824c-c89f78272f09
Also, if you use any AVG antivirus software, there may be an extension that was automatically installed onto your browser called "Do Not Track". This could affect your browser's performance. The steps to disable this extension are listed here: http://www.avg.com/us-en/faq.num-4902
If you have an ad blocker installed in your browser, you may also want to disable this completely. Ad blockers cause numerous issues with the way the site functions and simply adding Photobucket as an exception does not resolve those issues.
