Hello, when running an online experiment in Inquisit web it takes a long time to download the file (it stay a while in the starting screen when the "Loading files..." writing appears). I am wondering what is the best way to reduce the loading time? The experiment has quite a number of heavy images so it is this a possible cause?

Yes. The only way to speed things up, then, is to reduce the file sizes of the images (lowering resolution, applying some amount of JPG compression) as much as possible.

I have a smiliar issue. I have a web experiment (programmed in Inquisit 5; https://mili2nd.eu/amxb) with a lot of images (130 to be precise). In sum these images are not that big (~ 14MB). I just tried to run it to see if everything works as planned but the experiment doesnt seem to start (Inquisit Player doesnt open the file). Might that have to do with the number of images or is the problem somewhere else? My browser (firefox) as well as IQ Player are up to date (6.3.4) and I can run the experiment on my computer just fine.

Thanks in advance!

The script is fine, but there's some weird launch issue with Firefox that I need to get to the bottom of in more detail (it's not specific to your experiment's start page, it appears to affect all). I can launch the script fine in other browsers (e.g. Edge or Chrome). We'll figure out why Firefox balks and get that fixed as quickly as possible.

The Firefox launch issue should be resolved as of the time of writing.
