I’m wondering if you have any thoughts or help on the following message from GTMetrix.
My page load speed is very slow on my checkout and I’m trying to find out why. When I click on the YSLOW, it seems much difficulty is from Google Fonts?
How do I disable them from loading, or is that the problem?
Here’s the message:
There are 18 static components without a far-future expiration date.

You can remove or swap google fonts – the options are:
1. Choose System Stack fonts instead of Google fonts in the Customizer. Those will make 0 requests.
2. You can server fonts locally, this will still make request but from your domain ( less DNS lookups ):

You could try to use autoptimize using preconnect.
Just be carefull because i have seen that some settings in autoptimize could break the website, be sure to have a backup.
You could checkout this site for information about preconnect: https://daan.dev/how-to/speed-up-wordpress-using-preconnect/
