Why Confluence editor is so slow?


The editor is too slow. If I keep cursor key depressed, the cursor on the screen slowly walks between letters. Same feeling of low responsiveness is when editing.

Take a look at this gifPeek 2020-05-19 10-54.gif

In comparison in the video above there is also native Sublime Text 3 editor window...

Tell me how I suppose to work in such slow conditions? How to edit bigger article?

My laptop is i7 8gen, 16GB ram, Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox 76.


I also experience this consistently on what seem like relatively small pages.

So I am writing today tables in confluence and it gets really slow. Is there any help here I could get? Anybody from atlassian could tell me what to do to improve performance? Or are there any due dates on improving responsiveness of this crap?

We are experiencing the same problem. Although it is not AS slow as in your gif, it is noticably slower than in any other environment (eg compared to the JIRA comment field).

It also doesn't matter if the page is empty or built from a template or very long. After a couple of lines, input gets slower and slower. The only thing that helps in our case: save the page, and start editing again. It will work "as usual" for a while then.

(oh, core i9 9880H, 64 GB RAM on Win 10 if that matters - which I don't believe since it's only in Confluence)

Yeah, terrible experience to work with Confluence. Too slow. :(

I usually write it on google docs or something else, then paste it back to confluence wiki. Unfortunately that is not suitable as you get comments or some special objects.

Would be great if confluence just supported simple text markdown, like github.
