more options

On almost every site i visit recently the page will load for a second and then get redirected to a page that never loads. At the bottom of the browser is a message "waiting for google analytics. Has google gone mad? Had firefox gone off the deep end. This is the most annoying thing I have every encountered with firefox AND THERE HAVE BEEN PLENTY of things in the past to annoy me. Ive adjusted cookies I have done private browsing im at my wits end. WHY IS IT DOING THIS?

See this:

I just block that domain using NoScript. I don't care one way or another if websites collect statistics about my visits, but when that service noticeably slows web page loading for me it gets blocked. If they don't have enough servers or can't load balance their servers better to not cause slow downs, eff um - I will block that domain.

As far as being re-directed, I have no ideas about that issue.
