I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

My computer constantly gets bogged down by Firefox's voracious appetite for RAM! I am constantly clearing my cache & using memory cleaner to bump up my available memory, but with FF using over TEN GIGS OF RAM, at some point there's nothing else to do but reboot FF, and try again. WHY is it using up so much memory???

So it seems when i close my firefox browser, and reopen it again after a while, there is a noficeable slowdown in web page loading and other functions. I've troubleshoot fixes such as removing additional add-ons, stopping ad-blocker add-ons, and utilize the free-memory add-ons, none of it seems to fix the slow-down. Any help?

I have Firefox 59.0.2 running on a Win 7 Pro machine and a few times a week Firefox won't load any website. When this happens the workstation completely loses network connectivity. If I use Chrome and don't open Firefox at all for a couple of weeks everything is fine. This issue didn't start happening until I started doing Firefox updates to my original Firefox (sorry, don't know the version of the old one). For the longest time I was running an older Firefox and within the last 6 months started doing updates. It was around this time that this issue surfaced.

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

version Firefox Browser 91.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

OK, I've made it to version 42 and I have to say this is the slowest to load most hangs of any version I've ever used. I've tried everything. No add-ons, checked my DNS and entire network. Tried suggestions from the Mozilla site to speed things up and even checked for malware. I'm at my wits end because I love Firefox but right now on my Windows 10 machine, Google Chrome is way faster. I even deleted and re-installed FIrefox. This is a nightmare. Am I missing something like a hidden file when I delete? There are times half a pge loads up and I could get a cup of coffee and it's still loading. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

When I start up a fresh Firefox, things work pretty ok. But soon after, it starts pausing all the time. Hover over a link, and it takes a second or two to switch cursors. Click in a text field, and it takes a few seconds to become active. Start typing and every few words, it pauses and then catches up. Try to scroll and it takes its time doing it.

I've followed tips on previous issues that sounded similar. Accessibility programs disabled in options. Tried in safe mode. Tried a full refresh. Nothing works.

Any more ideas?

I'm on a Mac, High Sierra. With each new version of Firefox Quantum performance gets worse and worse. It's so bad I am using Chrome to type this complaint. Firefox allows me to type 2 letters before it waits for a minute to gather itself so I can type another 2 letters. Try doing a search that way - It takes all night to type a short query. And I lost the Add-on bar at the bottom. From the numbers of complaints, Mozilla doesn't seem to be in any frame of mind to solve any problems, it's their way or the highway. I'm off to Chrome. I'm done searching a user forum for answers, let's hear from Mozilla. Why should I have to search and try tips (ad nauseam and most don't work) from forum participants. This is no way to run a business.

I am hoping someone from Firefox Development sees this and that something can be done for those of us who need to have several tabs open simultaneously. I often find myself engaged in research that for convenience requires that I have several tabs open which eventually leads to browser slow down, hanging, and sometimes a crash. Im convinced this is the correct analysis since defragging the ssd fixes it every time. I believe it would be very helpful if Firefox were to add a compressor to its file storage routine, first blush thoughts, possibly one compressed file per tab. When I get into heavy research I find myself defragging sometimes several times in a day, which temporarily fixes the problem. Any chance this can be added, or if anyone knows of a fix to this issue? rgds, j

I am using Window 7. I have very serious problem with speed in firefox when connected with internet. It works very slow. When I tested without internet it was working normal. I have tried various anti-virus tools and adware removal softwares. I also contacted with internet service provider. But when I test internet speed it shows around 2 MB or enough desired speed.

I also replaced my hard drive in the doubt of any damage. I am using dell-3500 laptop with intel i3 core processor (32 bit OS) Surprisingly when I uninstall and re-install firefox browser it shows always previously installed adons and setting looking like using old settings. Sometime but not always it also shows the popup like : "some type of script is running . do you want to debug or stop". Now going to be very frustrated not able to detect exact issue of slowing down of browser. Sometime so slow that if I scroll down with mouse it jerk and take few seconds to shift only one inch downward and when I open new tab it takes 20-30 sec to open new web page. I am looking for any help.
