Firefox is suffering from seriously annoying lag spikes on my mac, while other browsers work perfect. The problem is the worst when watching Youtube video's or when typing (text only appears after 1-2 seconds when the spike happens.)

I've tried the about:config stuff, I used Speedyfox, googled for days but nothing seems to be working. What's worth trying? I love Firefox and I don't want to switch to another browser.

Could it be firefox plugin process? It seems to be eating a lot of RAM from times to times (I updated Java and Flash).

Thank you

I just bought a new computer that came with Windoze 8. I hate it. Firefox works occasionally.

It is pinned to the taskbar, but I cannot get it to start. I click on it and nothing happens.

When I go to Start and click on Firefox, it does not staty. IE and other programs start, but not Firefox. Is Microsoft blocking it? I am trying to run a business and I have to use Firefox on a Windows machine. Any suggestions?

I just updated to 18.0 yesterday. Since then, Facebook will crash FF upon login without fail. I can get to the main page (where I'd log in) but as soon as my home page starts to load, Firefox is unresponsive. I haven't noticed any issue with any other websites.

Flash and Java are all up to date, and I've checked my plug ins. I didn't have any issues with 17.xx, whatever was before 18 on the Release Channel. Any possible solutions/ troubleshooting I may have missed?

I'm running OSX 10.7.5, FF 18.0.

I keep getting the pop up: "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." Unfortunately it is always when I'm half way through writing a long email and the "stay on page" option doesn't work. I'm not very computer literate. All I can tell you is I'm using an imac OSX10.7.4 and FIrefox 14.0.1 Can anyone help?

There are no other copies running. At least none that I know of - how do I check - and if not, what else would be the problem/how can I fix?

The new Firefox plug-in Hola seems to have taken over my computer. I deleted it but now when I attempt to go to Hulu (the video site) I am redirected to the Hola website and asked to dowload new software. I have a Mac running OS X 10.7.5.

This Hola program is insidious - Mozilla should ban it.
