Has anybody else noticed that when you use FireFox with the internal Visual Studio Web Server everything comes to a screeching halt? This is only a problem with this particular combination on my system. When I run through IIS there’s no such problem. When I use the VS Web Server with IE it also runs faster (although still pretty sluggish compared to running IIS).
It’s so slow in fact that during testing of AJAX requests it’s not uncommon for simultaneous callbacks to time out (which is otherwise very rare in my dev environment).
Anybody seeing the same thing? And more importantly any idea what could be causing this? FireFox otherwise seems to be pretty fast after some tuning of the default network settings. But for use in combination with the VS server it’s just annoyingly slow.
Blah… not a big deal since I use IIS anyway in most cases – but I usually do a last test for various tools to ensure they run out of the box and this keeps coming up. I seem to remember similar issues for a while all the way back to running on XP last year.
I'll be at DevIntersection in Vegas this fall giving sessions on ASP.NET Core with Angular and Localization. Thinking of coming? Use discount code STRAHL and save a few bucks. If you do be sure to stop by and say hello!
