    I’ve run p3 plugin performance profiler plugin to see what’s slowing down my site and as you can see from the screenshot – fire bar is a massive performance hog. What’s that about?

    Hello drmoody,

    Welcome to the community :)

    I was able to view the image you have attached and I see what you mean. We have never used that plugin to test page load times, but FireBar isn’t really performing any complex server tasks. It is very surprising to see that FireBar is taking over 2 seconds to load on a page.

    I visited your site and it did seem to be loading slowly. If you deactivate FireBar does the page load time of your website decrease significantly?

    We do not want FireBar to slow your site down, but since you are the first person to experience slow page load times because of FireBar we want to make sure its not an anomaly.

    I just viewed your sites source code and it appears that FireBar is not even activate and it still seems as though your site is loading very slowly.

    What hosting provider do you have and what theme are you using? WordPress themes can affect your page load time just as much if not more than plugins.

    HI. Thanks for your prompt response. I’m afraid I have had to disable your plugin as It was pretty much unusable.

    I’m now using a free alternative “mail chimp top bar”

    I am using business hosting (SSD drives) with https://ventraip.com.au and I also have cloud flare and railgun activated. I am using the latest version of wordpress and also the latest version of my theme

    If your current website does not have FireBar installed then I don’t think FireBar is slowing your site down. I am trying to visit your site right now and it is extremely slow even without FireBar installed.

    I used a free tool to test the speed of your website and it shows that it is slower than almost 90% of all websites.
