I've tried EVERYTHING I can find on here to fix the lagging of my firefox. It mostly does it after I've had it up for few hours and/or when I have Raidoloyalty on. I get paid to listen to them so it not working really is pissing me off! Everything I've read and tired works for like MAYBE a month and then it's right back to doing it again. I am NOT going to constantly go back and do all that stuff EVERY month! I shouldn't HAVE to. Isn't there a way to fix this permanently? or at least fix it for 6 to 8 months or something?

Hello all,

My Mozilla Firefox web browser is slow and laggy, hangs, and stop responding to my clicks and keystrokes and doesn't seem to be doing anything. This happens when open about 5 to 10 pages at once. A couple of months ago i used to use Windows 7 as my OS, now I am using Windows 10 and have the same problem, so i've started wondering that maybe the problem is in my computer. Currently i am using Ad block. Tried restoring Firefox to its factory default state but the problem continues. Can you guys recommend me some advices how to solve this? I really like mozilla and want to continue using it. Computer is 32bit with Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU N3530 @ 2.16 GHz (up to 2.58) and 4GB of RAM. Sorry for my bad english. :)

Best regards!

Hi I saw the article about getting firefox to use less resource but I have no extensions or addons and removed flash entirely really bare bones vanilla firefox version 43 - its killing me. Using up to 90% CPU and hits over 411K memory - nothing else really running closed everything I could in task manager except what won't close or needed to keep things running and a few web pages open - locks me up.

It is nothing in particular, but every since updating to Firefox 44.0.2, everything is hanging and the graphics messing up much quicker in my session. Even typing this, the cursor hangs and has to catch up. I don't know what kind of patch this was, as an update to 44 appeared just earlier last week, but it's made things terribly slow. Who else is having this problem?

(Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language) Hello, it's been many months that I have a problem with automatic scrolling Firefox Maintain pressure on the mouse wheel can slide in all directions of the web page, very useful for long pages and also for very high resolution pictures.

Off for several release (from 40.0.0 I think but not certainty), scrolling stops and / or is extremely slow and choppy until the page is not fully charged. This is all the more painful if we wait for loading a heavy image on a slow site.

I tested with the Firefox Safe Mode and it changes nothing. Disable graphics acceleration nor solves this defect. Test a new blank profile ... Remove and reinstall Firefox ... Namely I met no automatic scrolling problem on Internet Explorer or Chrome.

As I visit large high resolution photo galleries, is often sucks having to wait finish loading before dragging on the page with the pressed wheel. I leave then your knowledge to help me determine the source of this defect.

P.S. Windows 7 x64 with ATI HD7870 2go

Basically whenever I do virtually anything now on FF it constantly "blinks". For example if I'm on Youtube it will randomly go to desktop for a split-second while the FF taskbar on top is still visible but "not responding" and then less than a second later everything's fine.

I tried disabling add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, doing a complete fresh restart, nothing seems to have fixed it.

On Saturday 12 December, Windows 10 spent an age updating itself, with several reboots. Since then, browsing has been intolerably slow with Firefox, although my internet connection is still fine (working fast from my smartphone and using Microsoft Edge). I have two PCs and both seem to have been affected in the same way. Using Task Manager, I see that Firefox is using lots of CPU nearly all the time - often over 50%. Even typing and scrolling is very slow, not just downloading. I have turned off all my add-ins and plug-ins, run in safe mode, restarted and reinstalled Firefox to no effect. Until now, I would have said Firefox was the fastest browser. I think Firefox updated itself to version 42.0 several days ago, so I a suspicious that this slowdown has happened just after a Windows update.

Hi Mozilla, This is the site http://www.deccanherald.com/. When I open 8 or more tabs on this site Firefox gets laggy. I right click on a link and choose open a new tab there is a delay of a few seconds before the right click menu appears and then another delay to open in a new tab. when I'm scrolling down there are more delays and when I move from tab to tab still more delays.

When I visit this same site in Internet Explorer 11 I don't experience any issue it works fine. My specs Alienware M14XR2 i7-3630QM, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA Geforce GT 650M, Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 Bit .

How can I increase the speed of Firefox?

Since a few days ago, maybe a week, Firefox is running slow. I have a few add ons. Now I try to log in to a course and cannot log in. I do run Malwarebytes every morning, and Kaspersky Labs almost every evening. I will contact my school and ask the web master about my login problem, also. But this will probably not fix the slow speed of Firefox. I check to see I have the latest version, about once per month. The Windows update service is configured to run automatically. I run W-10 on this machine. It is a Toshiba Satellite C75D-A, with AMD A6 quad core processor. Firefox is my default browser. I use yahoo most of the time for e mail and search engine purposes. The list of plug ins you show for my machine is correct.

I was in Ukraine from 2 October until 15 October, as a visitor. I observed that my machine (this one) behaved very strange, while I was there. When I returned, this machine began to function more normally. Maybe it was because of the different current voltage or something. I used a voltage adapter while I was there. Firefox was also slow, then, and it took a while to connect to one site or another. I had a lot of trouble to connect to the sites of 2 banks where I have accounts, but not to another bank, where I also have an account.

Sometimes I felt like my machine was not under my control, and a few times I saw the arrow (cursor) move on the screen, by itself. Like someone else controlled my computer. I reported this to the technicians at my anti-virus provider (Kaspersky Labs). They gave me a link to a program, and I sent the results to them. They ran a test and found nothing unusual.

Now Firefox is slowing down again. It works, yes, but it is not as agile as it once was.

Cookies are enabled in Firefox on my machine. But sometimes I use the version with a Venetian purple mask. I understand the cookies and history are not recorded or are disabled when I use this special version of Firefox.

I avoid Chrome due to the invasive and spying customs of Google. I use G mail sometimes, but am migrating my e mail to accounts in other providers, for the same reason.

I use IE for some sites that require it. Like the official site of Las Positas College, in Livermore, from which I graduated last year. Their site is essentially designed to work on IE.

One bank I check routinely, requires me to use IE to access my account.

I do not like to be tracked, so I have the no-tracking request turned on almost all the time.

If you need any further info, please let me know. Marc

Just bought a new IMAC. It came with El Capitan OSX 10.11.1. I used Time Machine to restore all my data and information. Everything carried over fine, and all my software is working fine. EXCEPT FIREFOX - version 42.0. It hangs up with a blank screen at boot-up. Sometimes it boots and Yahoo my home screen appears, but does not recognize my mouse, and ignores my mouse clicks on everything. Sometimes (Rarely) Firefox boots up. Unfortunately if I get out, the next time I envoke it, the same blank screen etc. I tried to restore Firefox as directed on their support site, but still have same problem. Any suggestions?

This feels slow as molasses, especially when working with many tabs. It happens :

- On already loaded tabs (so you'd think just clicking on them would bring them to the forefront immediately).

- On a fresh install (a few weeks old).

- With no bookmarks at all.

- On a profile with only 6 extensions, including Tab Mix Plus.

- On a virgin default profile just out of install, with nothing else added.

I've tried to disable the real-time shields of my Avast Free anti-virus, to no avail. Note : I've moved my profiles out of %AppData%, but I don't suppose this is relevant.

I come from Opera (legacy version), which does not have that delay. Is this to be expected on Firefox ?

As an aside, long startup times seem to be the norm (9 to 16 seconds, in my case), and I'm not even sure this includes the Profile Manager startup time. I used to live in a world where launching a browser was immediate.

Hi!

I need a little help. My FF is totally slow. I don't know where the problem is. I have open only a few tabs and it is loading too long, maybe 20 seconds and more and also "not responding" for a couple of seconds. I have never had these problems in such a way. FF was slow many times in 10 years of my using of this browser, but this is extreme for me. I tried to get rid of any unnecessary plugins and extensions, it helped for a few days and come again. Then I tried, for me the last solution, restarting/reseting FF to factory defaults... it also helped perfectly, but only for a few days and come again and I'm here, frustrated from FF. This problems I have on more computers and PC's are pretty new. 2x different HP ProBook 455 G2 with AMD A8 APUs and 1x HP ProBook 450 G2 with i3 Intel, if this could help. Plugins and extensions are only basic as I say, so this can't be a problem in my opinion.

Thank you very much for every respond.
