Why has Firefox become so slow? I hate Google but I've had to switch to Chrome. I'm on a top of the range Mac Mavericks with latest Firefox browser.
Never mind the volunteers! Why the hell can't the creators of Firefox sort this out? But if they don't want to bother then I'll just forget Firefox and carry on with Chrome.
I've tried all the cute little so-called fixes, cleared the cache, even got some silly thing called Speedy Fox but none of it ever works. Please Firefox, just sort it out.
