Scrolling has recently become incredibly slow. Firefox is not my primary browser on this computer, so I can't tell exactly when the problem was introduced or whether it coincides with installation of other software.

It looks as if hardware acceleration was no longer available. Both scrolling and page loading are very slow, Firefox appears to "lag" for a second or more. CPU usage spikes to near 100% on one core while scrolling in Firefox, vs. a mere ~25% on Opera for the same webpage. While scrolling, the mouse cursor also lags: instead of a single, smooth movement, it jumps around the browser, but the effect stops as soon as the mouse cursor leaves the Firefox window.

I have no such problems in current releases of Opera, Chrome or IE8.

What I've tried so far: - Uninstall Firefox, checking "Delete my preferences" - Reinstall - Disable all plugins (currently re-enabled after Reset) - Troubleshoot -> Reset Firefox

None of these did anything, so I followed the advice from http://kb.mozillazine.org/Scrolling_is_slow

Most interestingly, the problem completely disappears when I lower the hardware acceleration settings for the graphics adapter, see screenshot: http://www.yurgon.de/uploads/misc/ff21_hw_accelleration_wtf.png

However, in FF advanced options, the checkbox "Use hardware acceleration when available" has no effect on the problem. With "Use smooth scrolling" checked, the problem is more pronounced, with this option unchecked it is less pronounced, but still very annoying.

It's quite possible that the problem appeared after a recent windows update (if so, it probably would have been after the April 2013 patchday, and it definitely appeared before installation of the patches of the May patchday this week).

Currently using Firefox 21* with 64-bit Windows 7 Pro SP1:

If I enable File > Work Offline, then Firefox will not retain the setting for the next launch. So it will always access the Internet (and complain if it can't) every time that it launches. There is no reason to do that, since security vulnerabilities in Firefox are ordinarily exploited only while it is accessing the Internet.

Although I am hesitant to edit about:config I can do that if I need to, but I don't know which line(s) I would need to change.

It would be best if I can launch Firefox with a command-line parameter to start with Work Offline. If so, I could launch it with a Windows shortcut which has that parameter in the Command field. However, Firefox command-line documentation ( https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options ) seems a bit outdated, and discloses that it is incomplete.

If memory serves, there used to be a way to do this, but I cannot recall the method.  :-(

Thank-you for your time and attention to this matter.

   ______________________________________
  • PLEASE DO NOT BOTHER TO TELL ME TO UPGRADE TO FIREFOX 22.!! As I have stated in other contexts, Firefox 22 requires me to spend far, far too much time and effort constantly "adjusting" the view and magnification of text and/or of images. IE 10 for Windows 7 has exactly the same problem and I returned to running MSIE 8. The Firefox workaround is a kludge that does not produce a satisfactory outcome. The assertion that we can continue using the Firefox 21 display by configuring that feature is either wrong, or the setting is broken. IT IS NOT A SOLUTION!! If the Mozilla developers refuse to allow us to *disable* this "improvement" and continue using the Firefox 21 display, then we will be looking for another browser that doesn't waste so much of our time just trying to get it to work right. THANK-YOU for respecting my point-of-view even if you cannot see it.

I just installed Firefox 21. I do not see the Clear History item in the Tools menu any more. Is there any way to get that back? I prefer to have easy voluntary control over clearing the history and other data. Why did the developers not set the item in the Privacy panel to ask first before clearing anything, the way it did before?

For roughly the last year, Firefox has been crashing my entire computer, causing the system to hang and then shut down unexpectedly.

I have been able to narrow down the source of these crashes specifically to Firefox over the past few months.

I have a Dell XPS 8000 bought January 2010 with an i7 860 2.80Ghz and 16GB RAM, running Windows 7 64-bit. The crashes I receive only occur when Firefox is running and occur anytime between 5 mins of running FF up to 30 mins. I have tested this with nothing running except for FF and still receive crashes.

I use CoreTemp to monitor each core and none of them go above 50 C at the time FF crashes. I can run video playlists on Winamp, sync my iPad with iTunes as it updates several apps, use AutoGK and WinFF simultaneously to convert video, and have Chrome running with 5-8 tabs open and never receive this crash. I've also pushed the system further by having all the above running as well as CS3 Photoshop and Dreamweaver and mimic a server with Xampp and even then, my system will run just fine, albeit with temps in the high 70s.

I've only received these crashes only with Firefox running. To fix this, I've run fresh installations of Firefox twice and then today, since I've been running the same profile info since before 3.5, I backed up my bookmarks, completely uninstalled and then reinstalled FF without any of my addons, and in the middle of recreating my normal tabs and pinned tabs, received the same old crash. As a last resort, I let go of all my bookmarks and began adding them all individually, and once again, received the same crash; this last test was when I had nothing but FF running and temps below 50 C.

I am terribly frustrated by this issue because I am writing this from an HP laptop running FF with a profile that's been used since 3.5 and I can run FF and Minecraft on this laptop with no problems at all. I also have the same FF profile ported over to my Macbook Air and no issues there either.

I'm at a loss as to what could be causing this problem or how I can go about fixing it and any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have even gone painstakingly (SEVERAL TIMES) to the sites with IE, dragged the site onto my desktop in order to obtain the site native icons for my desktop (and deleted the ones with the Firefox icon) .... but they all soon revert to the default Firefox icon.

I read the other posts about Ubuntu 12.04 Unity no longer supporting toolbars and the workaround for what it does to the Firefox toolbar (go to bookmarks configuration, hover and search for the URL you want) but I am sure anyone would agree four clicks, a hover and a search is less useful than a single click ?

So is there any support for single click (or double-click) access to the four URLs I always use in Firefox? I am thinking the only way is four shell scripts on the desktop each starting Firefox with a different URL, but is there a better way? Alternatively, can anyone recommend a better Linux distribution that properly supports Firefox?

Thanks in advance, Mike
