When many plugins are installed, "Admin" > "Plugins" page is very slow. In case of worst, we can not operate page.

This is caused by version check of plugins. I hope that check code is stoped by some admin option 

Example source (qa-include/qa-page-admin-plugins.php [around L151]):

if (strlen(@$metadata['version']) && strlen(@$metadata['update'])) {
  if(qa_opt('version_check')) {
    $updatehtml='(<span id="'.$elementid.'">...</span>)';
    $qa_content['script_onloads'][]=array("qa_version_check(".qa_js($metadata['update']).", 'Plugin Version', ".qa_js($metadata['version'], true).", 'Plugin URI', ".qa_js($elementid).");"
} else

How many plugins do you have installed?

I tested various plugins for FlexArmor2.
Now, there is 37 plugins in my qa-plugin folder. 10 plugins of those do version check. They are plugins of you, Kai, NoarY and etc. My plugins do not check version. Therefore, when I remove these 10 plugins, phenomenon does not occur.

I will post hack source for the person who has been already troubled.

qa-include/qa-app-options.php (L360) : Add 1 line

'version_check' => 1, // Add ASKIVE
qa-include/qa-lang-options.php (L261) : Add 1 line
'version_check' => 'Version check', // Add ASKIVE
qa-include/qa-page-admin-default.php: Add 1 line (L217) , Replace 1 line (L281)
'version_check' => 'checkbox', // Add ASKIVE
//$showoptions=array('site_title', 'site_url', 'neat_urls', 'site_language', 'site_theme', 'site_theme_mobile', 'tags_or_categories', 'site_maintenance');
$showoptions=array('site_title', 'site_url', 'neat_urls', 'site_language', 'site_theme', 'site_theme_mobile', 'tags_or_categories', 'site_maintenance', 'version_check');  // Replace ASKIVE
qa-include/qa-page-admin-plugins.php: Add 2 line (L151 and L159)
if(qa_opt('version_check')) { // Add ASKIVE
  $updatehtml='(<span id="'.$elementid.'">...</span>)';
  "qa_version_check(".qa_js($metadata['update']).", 'Plugin Version', ".qa_js($metadata['version'], true).", 'Plugin URI', ".qa_js($elementid).");"
} // Add ASKIVE
