Did a search on the forum but didn't find a similar thread. If there is please point me towards it and accept my apologies!
As suggested when signing up I'm trying to use Hack the Box with Kali in a VM.
I'm on a 2017 MacBook Pro. I use VirtualBox with Kali Linux Vbox 64 Bit Ova which I downloaded from offsec today.
4gb ram, 2 cpu's allocated.
When I try to open Hack the Box website in FireFox ESR it's too slow to even log in.
I click the username field and I'm waiting more than 3 minutes to get a cursor. Same when I start typing. Whole system is stuck while waiting. Haven't been able to succesfully log in yet.
I had no problems with logging into other websites up till now but since I've only just got this up and running I tried 4 others so sample size is limited. All websites are slowish, but tolerable. I have fibre with 500mb up and down so internet speed should not be an issue.
If I open up a terminal reaction time is fine and very workable.
Has anyone else ran into this issue? And be able to solve it? Followed all tips I could find to speed up the VM I could find on Google and at the moment it's specifically only a Hack the Box website problem. Which sucks as that was the reason I got this up and running
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
