# Why does it take longer to click “$x$ questions with new activity” than to click “Questions” on the left?

I have a pretty stable and fast enough internet connection, so I rule this out.

I use Firefox 63.0 on a Ubuntu machine.

When I click "$$x$$ questions with new activity" and the $$x$$ happens to be some integer in the $$30$$s or higher it takes really long until the new questions are displayed.

Now when I click just "Questions" on the left it loads in an instant.

Does this maybe have something to do with the fact that I display 50 questions per page?

• @KReiser When I made the edits, I wasn't thinking about the fact that those posts would be bumped. I will be sure to keep this in mind in the future. Thank you for taking the time to give me a helpful suggestion. – user729424 Apr 23 at 1:45
