Lots of lag, apps freezing up


For the past week or so, my apps have been very slow to open. When they do open, they’re freezing up most of the time. I wish I could name a specific app/project for you to check, but it appears to happen with all of them. Is there anything I can do to speed things back up?


If you provide the name of a project then perhaps we can look in to it and solve for the others. Since this problem hasn’t been reported by others, it would be useful to know the browser version and OS and whether you still experience the issue when accessing via an incognito window. Thanks.


Hi Gareth,

One of them is https://itty-bitty.glitch.me. I’m using Chrome on Windows 10. I did try it with Firefox and incognito on Chrome and those ran faster. Do you think I just I need to clear my cache on Chrome?


Since it doesn’t happen in incognito mode, I wonder if it’s related to a Chrome extension you have installed.


That’s a possibility. It might’ve started about the time I added an extension for Augury. When I get home tonight, I’ll remove that and see how it works. Thanks :slight_smile:


Let us know how you get on! We have a list of plugins known to cause issues here and can add to it - https://glitch.com/faq#plugins


Sorry…I forgot to follow up on this. It was the Augury extension that was causing the lag. Glitch has been running smoothly ever since I uninstalled it.

Thanks, everyone, for helping me figure this out. :slight_smile:


Glad you got it sorted, I’ll add it to our list!
