This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.
I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.
Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.
All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.
At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.
When the YouTube sidebar is shown (on the left) it makes Firefox say "A webpage is slowing down your browser"

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox Quantum this has happened: Whenever i'm on a YouTube page where the sidebar (where you see Subcriptions, Saved/Your Playlists, etc.) it always makes Firefox Quantum freeze and say "A webpage is slowing down your browser."
Clicking "Wait" does nothing and just makes the error pop up again after a few seconds. I have to click "Stop It" to make it fully load. This doesn't seem to happen on a video page as, for me, the sidebar isn't shown when I'm on a video page.
Is there any reason it is doing this? YouTube worked fine before I upgraded to Quantum, and now it seems like YouTube doesn't want to work with Quantum correctly?

I was using my computer a couple of days ago with no issues, shutdown the computer for the night, then the next day there is a delay for the context menu to show up after right clicking in both Firefox and Thunderbird.
Aside from installing a few updates I have not made any changes to the computer since the day before & I have no issue with context menus in other browsers or the OS.
The hardware a Dell Optiplex 790 with an i5-2400 quad core, 12 Gb ram running Ubuntu 17.04 64bit.
- The right click context menu takes approx 5 to 8 sec to show up. - Drop down menus on web pages & in settings behave the same. - Occasionally the FF window will darken for a second or two then return to normal. - When an option on the context menu is clicked it is taking about 3 sec to go through.
- New Profile. - Safe Mode. - Disabling Hardware Acceleration. - Complete removal of FF & TB as well as their folders. - Downgrading to FF version 50. - Checked on another computer (this one is running Lubuntu, & does not show the issue).
Does anyone have any ideas?

Firefox used to be a GREAT tool. Now, it is LESS than great. Firefox previously would load a web page in very short order (never really timed it) but it was in seconds. NOW it is more like MINUTES and that is just when it starts to indicate the page is STARTING to show itself on the screen. Has YAHOO insert itself into your programming?

I had been having problems with firefox since a few months ago. When I opened it, it worked really good, but two or three hours later it got reeeally slow, and when checking the Windows Task Manager it said that Firefox was using about 2.5 RAM GB and I had to restart Firefox. The real problem started when I got sick of the previous issue and tried to fix it. and what kind of fixed that problem was refreshing Firefox (reinstall it didn't worked and I say "kind of fixed it" because only made the problem to take a bit longer).
I was so happy that I got like 5 hours on Firefox but then it got slow again and tried to restart it but... Firefox didn't do anything, just kind of freezd in the start (see image below). In this stage, won't even try to load anything, if I type an address and press enter, it won’t do anything, I can open the menu and open tabs, windows and private windows but all of them are the same. The only way to close firefox is by this menu (the X button in the top right corner doesn’t work). I can’t even load the add-ons page, nor the settings page. I have access to the help menu to refresh firefox but that fixes the problem only for one session (if I close and/or restart firefox, the problem returns).
I tried all what is said here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems but didn’t work or worked just for one session (reinstall, refresh and new profile solutions work for a single session, but the problem with the RAM persists, doesn't even work with safe mode).
I tried the solution given here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1021896 but won’t work not even for a single session. I neeeeeed help! Thanks!

In recent weeks on 2 different PC'a (both W10 64bit) - Firefox has become slow to start up.
Previously click on start bar - seconds later FF would open followed by a delay Google then open as home page.
Now click on start bar - nothing .... can be 10sec or more before anything starts ...... often you even think that maybe you missed the button ..... this is very noticeable recent change - has an update caused this ..... my builds are up to date.

I'm having over a month now a very very very slow Firefox. I tried several things, like resetting firefox, complete uninstall and install, deleting every trace of the program from my PC, sfc /scannow , installing the beta version or the nightly, but nothing worked so far.
A few weeks ago when I uninstalled and installed again, it seemed to work just fine, but a few days later the problem came back, and stayed. The program IS responsive, but the pages take ages to load. It's seem slow to establish the connection and the slow to transfer the data. The same pages on chrome and even better on edge are very fast.
I'm using Windows 10 64bit, 16GB RAM, on a Ryzen 7 CPU with a 1050Ti GPU. Any ideas?

I noticed a few months back that Firefox quantum 65.0.2 (64 bit) uploads are extremely slow. A 186kb image that is uploaded instantly in Chrome or Firefox developer edition (65.0b11 64 bit) takes about 30-45 seconds in quantum, a 900kb image jumps to 14% when I hit upload, then super slowly climbs up by 2%-4% at a time, finally finishing the upload 3 minutes later, and by the time the upload finishes the google captcha I entered has expired and it tells me to retry the upload. The same 900kb image uploads in 2 seconds on chrome and firefox dev. Also some websites like twitch.tv are super slow to load, not even a video stream, the homepage takes about 20 seconds to load, then another 30 seconds for the video to start playing, while the site loads and starts playing the homepage video within a few seconds on chrome and firefox dev. I've tried everything, launching firefox in safe mode, reinstalling firefox and trying with no plugins, switching between system proxy settings and no proxy. Is there anything else I can try? Super annoying having to launch chrome every time I need to upload something.

Vevo or any other official music videos are not playing in Firefox. After loading for 10 seconds, I am getting "An Error occurred" error. I don't have this problem with other videos. This problem occurred yesterday, although I didn't do any system changes or software updates during the day. In Internet Explorer 11 which using HTML5 Player by default, those videos are starting to play but only after 10 seconds load and not immediately like other videos. When forcing HTML5 Player in Firefox those videos are starting to play after 10 seconds load like in IE but HTML5 Player is very instable in Firefox. Software wise everything is up to date and I already reinstalled both Firefox and IE but the problem is still there. Even System Restore didn't help. Net research also didn't bring any solutions.

Firefox and my I.E. 11 Browsers are both very slow most of the time & getting slower. Firefox is very slow to open, hangs, won't respond for a few seconds, etc. I also see a message at times, right above address bar that reads "Mozilla Firefox (not responding)". I have done a refresh of Firefox, started in safe mode, etc. with no increase in performance. I've also cleaned the S.S.D. (solid state drive) (disk cleanup). Please help!

New Quantum browser upgrade loaded automatically yesterday and now is unusable as it locks up halfway through loading home page. Using Windows 7. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled new download from Mozilla, still same - unable to use so now I am having to use Chrome browser. One thing I do note in task manager processes, it shows four different processes for firefox, and same for Chrome.

It really seems like some kind of memory leak... always happens, it seems related to videos/ youtube, I have currently nearly 600 tabs open, but I read on a forum a guy have 1000 tabs and it runs smooth, so something is really wrong.. I got a 6600k overclocked at 4.5ghz and 16ghb of ram@3200 so it's not the hardware, also I'm running chrome in the same time, and even when my CPU reaches nearly 100% chrome runs smooth.. I have to close it and reopen it every time it's so annoying.
Would be nice to get some help.. I also tryed to disable all extensions, still had the same problem, right now I disabled kaspersky for the browser, it's not helping, something is really wrong with firefox.. I tryed to do a refresh.. HELL.. I even tryed to reinstall it !! and still got the same problem..
At this point if I can't figure this out soon I will be using stricly chrome..but I like firefox better, and all my shortcuts and bookmarks are there also

Beginning with Firefox 58, I haven't been able to use it for more than 5 minutes as it constantly crashes. There is no crash report to speak of, only the 'Restore tabs' option.
I tried all the guides I could find: - restarted with all addons disabled - fully wiped any installations and downloaded a new version - I am running Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1 (18B75) (lastest version) - about:crashes does not list any reports
I am forced to use other browsers because of these crashes, which is unfortunate. I also use Firefox on Windows 10 and I've never seen it crash. I also recall it crashing on High Sierra as well, so the Mojave upgrade wasn't the source.
Can anyone help me out with debugging this issue as I simply cannot solve it by myself and I've exhausted all the official guides as well as other topics.

Windows 10, Firefox 66.0.1 crashes and does not shut down when closed, with these 2 error messages: 1) Mozilla Crash Reporter (all boxes are checked)
When browser is reopened another error message appears: 2) Close Firefox: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.
This appears even after a long delay before restarting Firefox. I have gone through the suggested list of fixes, with no effect.

when I try to download a file, from a web link, with firefox, I see a flashing of the icons on the desktop wallpaper and then firefox hangs until I click on the application windows and appears the "not responding" message on the upper blue bar . The only thing left is to close the application by clicking on the x or by ctrl-alt-del and terminating. Same thing happens if clicking on "menù file --> open file" or it trying to Open file from the "Import and backup" button of the bookmarks library window. In addition, Firefox hangs also when clicking on the Menù "Options" tab.
A very similar thing happens with thunderbird when I try to attach files to new messages that I am composing: desktop flashing and software hangs and I have to terminate it. If i open preferences to browse the
I have tried many solutions for Firefox and for Thunderbird, including safe mode, OS safe mode, Refreshing, uninstalling both of them and reinstalling after deleting every profile folder to be sure to reinstall from schratch. I tried portable versions, uninstalled antivirus (at the moment I am running no antivirus at all ! ), updated video card NVidia quadro NVS440 drivers.
I posted a similar question about thunderbird on this forum here but I am getting convinced that the problem is about how mozilla products interact with explorer file dialog window since I essentially get the same problem when trying to work with files.
I saw a similar question here exept for the fact that I have thunderbird out of order too.
So far I couldn't figure out how to solve all this. Hope someone can help me because I have been using firefox and mozilla for more than 10 years now and would like to continue.
Thanks in advance. Bye

This one is hard to pin down, but occasionally Firefox will go unresponsive but will accept one previous mouse action (like clicking a tab) when I put Firefox in the background by clicking another open non-Firefox window and bringing it to the front.
How this happens:
1. I lock my macbook and step away from the desk for an undetermined amount of time. 2. I come back to my desk and unlock my computer. 3. I click on firefox to browse for something and it doesn't respond 4. I'll click another tab that isn't in focus, nothing will happen 5. I click on any other open application and I will notice that Firefox will change to the tab I had just clicked on 6. If I go back to Firefox, it will not respond to anything until I bring some other application to focus.
Sometimes, if I wait a long time like 10 or 15 minutes, the problem will resolve itself. Usually I just get frustrated and close Firefox.
I feel like this has to be a problem between Firefox and some other application that I run. Some other appications that are typically open are:
iTerm2 Spotify Lastpass Plugin Microsoft Outlook Atom.io Sometimes TweetDeck Maybe another Firefox profile
I have been unable to regularly reproduce this issue, but it will typically happen multiple times a day.
One other behavior that I have noticed is that I can click the address bar and nothing visible happens, but if I start typing, the suggestion bar will pop up and accept the text I am typing. I am including a picture of that behavior
Hi there. After years of not using Firefox, I decided to give it another try and installed it on my 13 inch Mid 2010 MacBook Pro. It's the latest Firefox release (63.0.…
After years of not using Firefox, I decided to give it another try and installed it on my 13 inch Mid 2010 MacBook Pro. It's the latest Firefox release (63.0.3) and I notived that it is still a lot slower compared to other browsers. Pages loading slower, videos are choppy, and it also seems to use more power and memory.
So I decided to do some tests not to rely only on my observations, and it seems that I'm right. I'm using the latest Mac Os High Sierra 10.13.6 with SSd drive and 8GB of RAM.
I googled some browser tests, and I found this website: https://browserbench.org and ran all 4 tests available, and compared it to the latest version of Safari (12.0.1), the latest version of Chrome (70.0.3538.102) and here is what I found:
Firefox: Motion Mark: 49.13 Speedmeter: 21.5 Ares-6: 207.57ms JetStream: 62.505
Chrome: Motion Mark: 54.58 Speedmeter: 27.4 Ares-6: 72.39ms JetStream: 62.919
Safari: Motion Mark: 98.79 Speedmeter: 34.5 Ares-6: 58.29ms JetStream: 85.729
As you can see, the Firefox performance is rather poor, and it's been like that on my MacBook since I remember. I thought this new Quantum one will be much better, but I'm very disappointed.
Why is this happening? Why is Firefox so slow? I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

With FF not running, I'll be using my computer and FF will open to an empty page... and maybe 30 seconds later it will close. This happens at random times. I've looked through Sync & Auto Update settings and do not see any controls established by FF that would allow it to run autonomously. Any ideas?
