Auto tracker causing browser lag

I’m noticing that the auto tracker feature, which is super useful, causes major lag and unresponsiveness when using my Edge and Chrome browsers when I have multiple tabs open. Any click, typing, switching to other tabs, mowing browser windows, or opening new tabs, sometimes takes 2-3 seconds to register. This makes using my web browser in conjunction with Auto Tracker extremely frustrating.

Please help as I find the auto tracker function extremely useful and rely on it for my workflow.

Hi there,

Thank you for reporting this issue. Can you please send a short screen recording of the issue to our support team at so we can investigate it further?


I’m finding that the Auto tracker on the desktop app is actually causing a slight slowdown system-wide. All apps have a very slight delay when auto tracker is running, but it’s especially worse in my web browser (Edge, Windows 10). As soon as I turn it off, the system is back to normal.

Everything is up to date.

I am trialing and just purchased a Pro account intending to bring several employees and contractors onboard. I am seeing this issue as well and it’s a hard stop for me.

Tab previews can take 5s+, millisecond operations in browser and software turns into multi-second delays. I assume this isn’t a typical experience otherwise this would be a company wide non-starter. This is on a newer machine and currently our fastest in the office.

This is one year after this thread was created, but it seems the issue still persists unfortunately. When using the auto tracker I’m 90% of the time unable to use chrome browser, as it just freezes every 5 seconds.

I’ve been experiencing this issue for about a year on and off. Things were fine with the last few updates, but on 1.7.89, Chrome is basically useless. Tabs are all frozen, things do not respond for 30-45 seconds. Edge seems to be ok, but Chrome is completely unusable.
