Try opening it in "New incognito window". This will open window without any extensions. If it runs well there then you will have to find out which extensions are causing the problem.

Mostly the same for me... Firefox, Opera or IE will freeze on the first visit of HTG, it don't bother me anymore after that untill the next reboot of the computer.

Gh0stMatrix, yup ...
same here - only the very first visit to the site, after that it loads right away. started after some of the changes made to the site.
have a feeling its add-on like ad block or no script, etc.,etc...

Opera and IE have no extensions, maybe it's a plugin.
It's just a matter of the first visit of HTG with a browser, who seem to trigger something that it off by default in the OS.

Perhaps if you are set to delete cookies and temp files when leaving the browser it takes a while to redownload stuff again.
