    It seems that the importing process for Scrapebox Page scanner takes way more time than the same importing for harvester (from .txt file). For example, I can import 300k URLs in harvester just in matter of few seconds but the same process for Page scanner takes about half an hour.

    It's even worse when the URL count is even higher. I tried to import 1M urls and it took like 2-3 hours.

    Is it because of software architecture, limitation issue or I'm the only one who faces with it?

    This shouldn't happen. Maybe if your importing 300 million but not 300 thousand.

    Its likely that some security software is trying to scan the entire import for the page scanner, but is ignoring the main scrapebox window. Addons and plugins are complete stand along programs, so they would each be viewed as separate by security software.

    So try whitelisting the page scanner and the entire addons folder for that matter, in all security software such as anti-virus, malware checkers and firewalls.

    Also you can try and close down any unneeded programs.

    Thanks for a tip. However, I disabled my AV but unfortunately it doesn't seem to have fixed the issue.

    Make sure you whitelist. Disabling an anti-virus only stops it from creating new rules, but existing rules still fire. So you have to uninstall the A/V or fully whitelist the addon.

    Also malware checkers could do this.
