I use the MetaMask browser extension in Chrome, Edge and Brave. On all these browsers it takes about 10 seconds for the MetaMask window to pop up. This is for unlocking, switching networks, doing transactions, etc.
I have already tried the following recommended actions:
disabling and enabling the extension
removing unneeded accounts
remove unneeded chains & testnets
clearing the browser cache
All this hasn’t helped.
The last thing that remains to do is to “clear the activity tab data”. However, according to MetaMask, this is not something that normal users should need to do. Also it says it resets the nonce. I don’t understand this. Isn’t the nonce supposed to always keep increasing? If it gets reset to 0 again, can you still do transactions and will these then get nonces starting from 0 on the blockchain?? Can this cause any problems?
I hope MetaMask can come up with a solution to this problem. Other users have reported this as well but it seems to get ignored. It makes the MetaMask wallet completely useless for serious use as it makes every transaction take much more time to process. If there isn’t a solution for this problem within 2 months or so, I will switch to another wallet and never come back.
