Bad pagespeed due to fontawesome etc

Hi there,

my new page is quite slow, so I try to find out, what can be done. Using Chrome Audits, I get the following “Opportunites” to increase speed:

Preload key requests:
…fonts/flat-ui-icons-regular.woff => Pot. Savings: 12.060 ms
…font_awesome/fa-brands-400.woff2 => Pot. Savings: 1.280 ms
…fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff2?v=4.7.0 => Pot. Savings: 830 ms
…font_awesome/fa-solid-900.woff2 => Pot. Savings: 740 ms

These are fonts used by the X-Theme, correct? So how can I (or you?) solve this?

I’ll send you the URL via secure note.

Best regards


H Uli,

Thanks for writing in! Font-awesome library is required to function X theme correctly, so we don’t recommend to disable it.

When analyzing your site using a tool like GTmetrix (, I see that you have other priority issues which slows down your site. You may try to optimize your site according to their recommendations and see how it goes.

Also we have a separate guide on how to increase performance of your website, which you can follow as well (


I have the same issue here. I feel this is because of the latest update of the theme. Before that my website did not have these low speed issues. As you can see my GT scores are pretty high.

These are the paths causing slow speed issues. See below. They also give a 404 status. Not sure why that is?


Any ideas on how to fix this?

Update: after I Deleted Cache and Minified CSS/JS the problem was gone. No need for further help.

Glad to hear that @djinnie.
