When I use Chromium browser and refresh the same page, it shows many posts under 3 hours (or more). I am using the latest version of Firefox 72.0.1 (64-bit) and am running Linux Peppermint.
It has been happening now for about 4 days now. I remember something like this happening many years ago but can't remember what was causing it. Any ideas?

The lasted version won't give the option to stop any more updates which defeated the whole object of open source software.
By uninstalling Firefox completely and reloading a previous version it now works so much faster.
Just remember to check the never check for updates button on the older version before you connect to the internet or you're back to square one.

Firefox for me is going in that direction. Although I run it on Linux, security issues are still a concern so I probably will stick with the updates feature but may end up using another as my default browser if things continue to decline.
So far Chromium (not Chrome) has not had any issues for me.
As R Ranson pointed out, she is not having any issues with Chrome so perhaps its something more local to your system?
