These could be a result of a stored cache data in your browser, @tim124.
Too much data files saved in your browser causes unusual behaviour that affect the performance of your account.
To verify this, let’s access your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account on a private window (incognito) and create a budget report from there. Using an incognito window does not store any data file. Thus, it’s a good tool for checking a browser cache issue.
To start, you can use these keyboard shortcuts in opening a private window:
If you’re able to create a budget via a private window, I recommend clearing your regular browser’s cache. This will delete all the cache data and make your browser to function more efficiently. If the issue persists, try using other supported browsers. This way, we can verify if this is a browser-integrated issue.
I’ve also added this link that you can use for reference: Customise reports in QuickBooks Online. This can guide you through the steps on how to personalise your report base on the data you need.

I use google chrome and have launched the budget grid in a private window. This did not change the issue - QBO remains very slow and I am receiving time-out notifications.
I have tried the same process in safari and it had same errors.
