MrsRed, this sounds like an issue I experience from time to time. As odd as it may sound, the answer in my case, after the usual OnyX and other Mac maintenance has been to turn off my DSL modem AND the router, let them sit alone for about 10 minutes and then turn them back on again. Basically, reset the DSL modem and router. If you are like most of us, those boxes are just always on, week after week after week. Now and then, a hard reset of these boxes really speeds things up.
I would recommend that you try this as well.
I would also recommend the usual stuff, like making sure you have cleaned out your browser's history and cache and cookies. All of this will slow down a browser as well, but I am assuming you have done that already.
Give the DSL Modem and Router reset a try. It has solved a slow web performance issue for me more than once.
