Chrome is faster than Firefox, it is a fact and the Firefox team is working hard to make it more fast as its competitor. The issue may be due to the difference in the page rendering technology used by Chrome and Firefox.

Even if Firefox is a little bit slow, it is not recording your browsing habits for Google's commercial interests.

I understand this, but from my perspective, as an user, it seems that Mozilla is focusing to create a web technology based operating system rather than offering a good experience to the users.

dileepkumars1: Mozilla uses Spidermonkey (written by Eich in 10 days!) for Firefox whilst Google uses their own V8 engine.

Hi, sorry you're having problems with Firefox. Can you try to access Firefox in Safe Mode to see if the problem still exists and/or if it opens? You can follow the below instructions to start it in that mode.

  • Go to Help > Restart with add-ons disabled
  • When Firefox closes and re-opens, select Start in Safe Mode

If Firefox works fine after starting in Safe Mode, then it's most likely one of your extensions misbehaving. You can enable your add-ons back on by one until you find the conflicting extension.

You can create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem

Even the tabs run slow, opening, closing, moving around; choppy and low framerate whereas Chrome's are always fast, so it's more than the page renderer.

Just scrolling a page is slow where it isn't on Chrome, so that may be a page renderer issue, but it just seems like inefficiencies or bloat. Opera runs fine, not as fast as Chrome, but not choppy like Firefox. I don't know why they haven't figured this out yet.

I'm confused as to what kind of processing power Mozilla expects for Firefox. It runs slow on an i7, i5, i3, Dual-Core, P4... just doesn't seem to matter, the faster your processor the less slow, but it's still slow.

If you have a slow experience with Firefox 30 or higher, there are a few things you can do. Please start a new thread for your issue and we can help you there with steps specific to your issue :)

I've already read all those and tried them, and they don't fix the browser or the page slowness. The browser itself is slow regardless of any pages loaded, and far slower than any other browser, including Internet Explorer or Opera

Oh and by the way, for anybody reading this far, the Chrome V8 engine is just a Javascript parser, not a browser or page renderer.

I'm not talking about the articles, I'm talking about creating your own thread and the forum helpers will work through your specific Firefox problem.

I'm locking this thread as it's old and off-topic.
