    Ok, having a really annoying problem, I'm having to type this from Notepad and then copy and paste. This surface pro 4 and pro 4 Type Cover work fine for everything except this website?? I get about 3-4 word in and then get massive lag, like it takes 5 or 6 seconds for the word 'the' to appear and the 't' was missing. Then after that only a fe letter apear for each word with long pauses between the random letter. It's basically unusable. Quickly tried Edge search window and Chrome and they seem fine. Is there a setting I need to switch on or off?

    Ok, just logged in using Chrome this time and testing. The quick sly fox jumped over the lazy brown dog (or whatever the alphabet test is). This seems fine, so it's something to do with Edge and this site and my Surface Pro 4 that is the issue. What other info should I post here?

    See your other thread, it is caused by the 3rd Party Ad Servers - you can block them with a HOST File.

    Ok, thank you. I don't know what a host file is?
