I’m facing problem with Tumblr, what should I do?

I use Tumblr a lot but I'm facing problems with it these days. Tumblr runs really slow on my web browser. The contents of the page aren't loaded. I mean, they take a lot of time to load. I get the 'Aw, Snap' error too. I'm on Google Chrome. Any suggestions?

There are a few troubleshooting tips to try which I have listed below:

  1. Check to see if your Antivirus and/or Firewall isn’t blocking Google Chrome, which can affect the way that Google Chrome works.  Try the following:
  • Quite Google Chrome
  • Turn your antivirus and firewall off temporarily
  • Open Google Chrome again and see if you still get the error.
  • If it does, add an exception for Google Chrome to be allowed through your firewall and that your antivirus isn’t blocking it.
  1. Check Google Chrome extensions
  • Open a new window by pressing Ctrl&Shift&N at the same time.  Try and load Tumblr to see if you still get the error.
  • If it does open normally, close Google Chrome and see if you can open Tumblr normally.  If it doesn’t open properly, then an extension is probably interfering with your connection. 
  • Try and disable your extensions one by one, opening Tumblr after you have disabled each extension. 
  • You can disable extension by doing the following:

    • Click on the Chrome Menu which is shown by the three diagonal lines in the top-right corner
    • Click on More Tools > Extensions
    • Uncheck the checkbox next to each extension you want to disable
    • Close Google Chrome and reopen it to see if the webpage loads properly
  • You can also delete extensions by following the steps below:

    • Click on the Chrome menu which is shown by the three diagonal lines in the top-right corner
    • Click More Tools > Extensions
    • Next to each extension that you want to delete, click on the trash can icon to delete it.
  • If the problem still persists, run an anti-malware program to remove any unwanted programs on your computer.  If you are running Windows, you can use the Software Removal Tool by downloading it here
  1. Create a new user account on Google by deactivating your current on, as your profile might be corrupt.  To create a new profile, follow the steps below:
  • Quite Google Chrome
  • Search for the Default folder for Google Chrome on your computer.  When you locate this folder, rename it to “old default” (or whatever you want to rename it to).  This will deactivate your old account. Close the window.
  • Reopen Google Chrome
  1. Google Chrome can be set up so that it saves your browsing data, so that when you reload the webpage after you have quite Chrome, it will load faster. This process is known as DNS Fetching. Lots of problems that are related to loading webpages, are because of DNS fetching in Chrome. Errors with webpages not open correctly can be as a result of wrong or outdated DNS for that specific website.  You can turn DNS Fetching off by following the steps below:
  • Click on the Chrome Menu which is shown by the three diagonal lines in the top-right corner and click on Settings
  • Scroll down on the page to see the advanced settings
  • Uncheck the checkbox next to “Predict network actions to improve page load performance”
