Joe: What do you mean by 'respond to links when I click on them'? Many webpages (not this one) react to a click by colouring the link, or bolding it, or giving some other visual feedback. Is there a delay before that happens? If so I'd suspect the mouse/driver/OS. If you navigate with the keyboard - Tab and Enter - is it just as slow to react?

If the browser detects the click but doesn't react, does it depend on whether the link is internal to the page - like the list of posters on this page - or goes to another site. If the latter I'd suspect the OS, your network, or your ISP (eg slow DNS).

Have you got some 'security' software running that checks whether sites are 'safe'? Try turning it off .

You could have malware slowing everything down, but if you had a similar problems with your old computer I look at what's not changed. The mouse? The ISP? Try Google DNS.

You mentioned you Chromebook the other day. Does it happen on that? If not, what's different - apart from the much lighter OS?

From your description I doubt if its the browser. Yes, some browsers are quicker than others - particularly on javescript-heavy sites like gmail (it's no surprise that Chrome is faster on its own sites) but the differences are not huge. When things are slow people blame the browser because it's what they're looking at. They install a new one and, hey, it's faster! But if they'd sorted out the old one - cleared the cache, got rid of tracking cookies, unused addons, whatever - it would have faster too. Eventually the new browser will slow down too. (Firefox has a reset feature which you might try.)

And what about BobL's original question. I was intrigued by Jos' reply? Is that Chromium Edge? Do others see that[
