Delay in viewing conversation: Mac app

I installed the Mac app ( 2.9.1) on a new laptop. Everything works as it should but there’s considerable delay in fetching the conversation when I click on a post/reply. Longer the thread the longer the delay (as long as 20-30 seconds). Once it’s viewed, subsequent viewing has no delay.

Is it the Mac app or is generally slow today?

I’m clicking around right now and I’m not noticing anything like that. Shouldn’t take longer than one second usually. The fact that subsequent views are fast may point to some kind of caching issue. If other folks are seeing this, lemme know.

It happened on my new laptop, but it is working fine on the regular desktop I use. I’ll check later in the evening if the problem persists.

I noticed this yesterday. Also with conversations that had more than two photos.
