I would like to second that I am also experiencing extremely slow load times with v3.8.0. Every page is about 60 seconds, which makes doing any work a torture. I also have enabled airplane mode, disable google fonts, and heartbeat control, all of which have no effect.

Disabling my antivirus helps some, which is not a particularly good solution. The best solution seems to be completely disabling my wifi, which is even less acceptable.

Any kind of help with self-diagnosing slowness issues would be greatly appreciated.
