We are using the Nivo Slider with a publishing site in SP2010. We have three images and in all the browsers except IE7 & 8. In those browsers the images rotate in extremely slow or (it seems) not at all. The dots cycle through out of sync with the images also. We are using jQuery-1.4.2. The site is https://communityservice.wustl.edu/ Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! djlender

After a short analysis of the home page already I would suggest lighten up the page (1.1Mb profile) - as general concepts:
