    I surf GBATemp with Firefox all the time and it's faster than a chocolate chip cookie jumping out of a city rooftop garden! Maybe your internets ares brokens?

    Try clearing your cache under options somewhere and see if that works

    This has also happened to me about a month ago. Soon enough everything got back to normal.

    It might not be FireFix, try using IE6. If it's still slow check your router settings, sometimes resetting your router fixes these things (don't do it unless you're sure that you can get it back online again).
