I've imported the GIF, edited some layers, and now when I save it for web, it's considerably slower.

Original GIF vs Edited GIF

Why is this happening, or rather, how can I prevent it?

The delay in frames.

The original has a 0.04 delay for each frame. Yours has a 0 delay. Setting the delay back to 0.04 corrects the issue.

Yours with delay reset:

  • Damn, that makes no sense... How can a 0 delay be slower than a 0.04 one? – Ivan Apr 22 '20 at 23:10

    My guess is that it merely controls the delay and without a control the browser decides how fast frames move. But you're right, it makes no sense. – Scott Apr 22 '20 at 23:12

  • Adobe puts a lot of effort to push the usage of somethings that are somehow standardized to make its programs "different". In this case, the GIF file accepts values of 1/100 of a second as a "frame rate". So a "delay" (what a nonsense) of .04 is 1/.04 = 25 so it is 1/25 sec. But when you have 0 you have 1/0=? or no valid, so the value is reset to some other value, probably 1/10th of a second. – Rafael Apr 24 '20 at 2:40
