New Content Selector Slow To Load?

Hi Admins,

Ever since the new Content Selector was introduced we are having very slow loading times when editing pages, quizzes, assignments etc.

Is anyone else finding this issue? I've contacted support but have been told that they can't replicate the issue and that I should just clear my cache regularly (not super helpful).

Here is an video showing the issue at hand: Canvas SideBar Slow Load - ClickView 

Any thoughts or suggestions/solutions?

gharbor, this is a duplicate of posted in the‌ group. Rather than creating multiple versions of the same question/discussion in different groups, a Community member can create one version and then share it out to any group to which he or she belongs. That way, we can keep all responses unified in a single thread, and members of both groups can contribute.

With this in mind, I'm going to lock this question for further participation, and request that people direct their responses to the above-linked question in the ID Group (I've shared it to this group).
