I hear you loud and clear. I think we all share some of those frustrations.
I don't think there is an obvious fix, and closing out the site and coming back may be as good as any.
Other things I've tried include:
1. Going back to JAWS 12 from 13. I don't want to get started on that one, but there are at least 100 other reasons to do that.
2. Refresh the screen. Sometimes JAWS won't recognize tables and other features without a screen refresh.
3. Unload JAWS and fire it up again. You can do it with insert plus F-4; however (and this may be more superstition than anything else), but unloading JAWS with control plus windows plus F-4 then followed by a restart of JAWS seems to produce a little snappier instance of JAWS when I restart.
There are so many variables at work that I'm not sure there is a consistent culprit: e.g., bandwidth at the moment, the browser, the Website server, your computer and other processes running, JAWS, the browser itself, the Website, and ...

Hi, Your suggestions and those of Ed are helpful and instructive but upon
further review and experimentation, perhaps my frustration lies within the
vagaries of JAWS itself. For example, I have had recent success by closing
out a site when JAWS is maddeningly slow and then returning to the site for
a second try. I have no idea why JAWS misbehaves in the first place but
when the screen reader is working responsively, the navigation techniques
mentioned by you and Ed all produce results or relevant feedback. Go
