DuckDuckGo privacy extension causes slowdowns: 3/18/2021 01:01:07

I've been able to use Warzone in Chrome for playing games and map creation perfectly well until a couple weeks ago, when every map started lagging heavily. Zooming in and out, moving the map around, deploying troops, everything has become painfully slow and awkward. I can only assume it's a problem on my end, but does anyone have any troubleshooting tips? Does Warzone use up any specific computing resources/require a specific program/etc? I've restarted my computer and checked Task Manager, but Chrome isn't using up any extra resources. Thank you for any advice you can give.

EDIT: It seems like this problem is caused by DuckDuckGo's privacy extension, as everyone who has reported this have it installed.

It seems when DuckDuckGo released version 2021.3.8 of their extension on March 11th it caused things to run very slowly.

I recommend disabling this extension, or if you have the ability to you can try downgrading it to an older version.

I have contacted DuckDuckGo and reported this problem. I hope they will fix it soon.

I have never had a problem before but today it has been doing this, game is pretty much unplayable I use firefox. Hopefully whatever it is stops, can't think why this would happen all of a sudden.

It might use useful if you said which version of Chrome you are using. It’s probably a Chrome only issue as it’s fine for me on Firefox.

Firefox 86.0.1 64 bit
Windows 8.1

No other issues with any other sites at all. This has happened to this game to me for a while, but usually just restarting the browser will clear it up. But for the last about 24 hours I have been unable to play any game on the site, single player, Idle, or multi-player it doesn't matter it lags/freezes up.

- What browser you're using, with version. If you have multiple browsers, please try them all and see if the problem happens in all of them. Firefox 86 (64-bit)
- What operating system you're using. Ubuntu 20.04
- Does the problem happen for all games? If not, post examples of games that experience this problem. Mild lag for all games. The games I play are almost entirely SEAD RT QMs. I might be a red herring though because I think my CPU is on its last legs on this device, so the lag could be for that reason.

Lag problem started a few days ago for me on Firefox Version 86.0.1, not sure if it started when I updated Firefox to current version or with the Warzone update. Painfully slow to play large map game, a little better but still very slow on simple map. I can now play much faster on Chrome Version 89.0.4389.90, though still slower than normal Firefox speed.

My lag issue description:

1. I have been occasionally playing over the past several months using Chrome, now Version 89.0.4389.90 (Official Build) (64-bit). OS is Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.867). Game executed flawlessly at all times regardless of map or any other option with no lag whatsoever at any time.

2. As described above, about two weeks ago, game started performing poorly to the point of unplayability, eg. clicking on an owned territory to distribute armies would take about three seconds for the army to show up. Scrolling in or out of zoom and anchoring cursor to navigate about would lock the map for several seconds. This was universal regardless of map.

3. As suggested above, swapped browser to Microsoft Edge Version 89.0.774.54 (Official build) (64-bit). Game worked flawlessly once again.

4. Got tired of swapping browsers to periodically watch a V-Log I was still listening to on Chrome on the Rumble website so I navigated to the website on Edge in a new tab and closed out Chrome. This reintroduced the horrendous lag on the game on Edge.

5. Closing Edge and reopening did not help

6. Rebooting machine, an HP laptop, did not help.

Let me know if you need anything to assist in troubleshooting efforts. (I am an engineer; a computer user, not a computer engineer or coder.) If I hit F12, Console tab, there are 3 yellow warnings with links that have https://warzonecdn.com/js extensions, and one red error with a .js and addsbygoogle in the address stating failed to load resource:net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT. (this is near endpoint of my computer knowledge. Detailed instructions would be appreciated beyond this point for me)


Thanks for your help.

Same here. Since yesterday in Firefox 86.0.1 Warlight is totally lagging. Every Click, Zoom, ... needs at least 3 seconds.
Like that it's unplayable.

It seems to be a browser problem. I have Firefox on my Mac laptop and it suddenly went very slow this week. Meanwhile via my Android phone via Chrome Warzone was fine. So I have changed my browser on the Mac to Chrome to access Warzone and I am back in the game.

I have the DuckDuckGo extension as well, and disabling it yielded the same result for me - everything is once again buttery smooth. I'm still confused, though, since I've had the extension for a lot longer than the time this issue has been occurring.

Same, the patch didn't work but disabling DucklDuckGo Privacy Essentials seems to clear up the issue.

Interesting,

While I am a member (and thus don't have ads), disabling my duckduckgo privacy extension for this site worked.

The DuckDuckGo team has excluded warzone.com from its extension, so it should be working fast again even for those with the extension installed.
