Yahoo mail runs very slow. Do I have to switch to chrome?

Posted

I have reset. I cleared registry. It runs faster in chrome, but I am loyal to FF. Can anything be done. By the way, other sites also seem to be sluggish. Breitbart.com is one. Please help. Thanks :-)

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I tried all these things. How often should I have to reset FF? I am using FF 31.0. W7 Pro. Service Pack 1. 6 GB RAM. 64 bit OpSys. Any other suggestions? Thanks JP
