Why with every new update of firefox the firefox is more slow that previous version? I replace nvidia graphic card with latest AMD graphic card and still slow performenc.

Chroma and Firefox with the same plugin and both have enabled Hardware Acceleration, but firefox is so slow that you can't use it if you open maps.

Please try to open this page in firefox and in google chrome: https://www.here.com

Gogle chrome: Super fast open map and drag map is smooth

Firefox: very slow open map and drag map is very slow

Can someone tell me why firefox team for every new release slow down performenc of firefox? To version 30 all go smooth all above version is more slow.


p.s. This is for Firerfox developer team if will read this:

Please go back to version 30 and start work on this version becouse what you do now is usles, you can't figure out how to create smooth working FF version.

Yes i try but problem is still the same.

But tell me please, why Chrome with the same settings work like charm and firefox is lagy?

Problem and slow working begin after FF change look for tabs, UI and when they remowe settings that was in version 30 and below.

But after version 35 or 36 FF become almost unusable for everyday usage. Very slow, removed useful things, crashes etc.

p.s. Do you try to open above link in chrome and in FF? Do you see that chrome open map in 2 second and FF need almost 10 second?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Type about:preferences#advanced<Enter> in the address bar.

Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

I didn't compare Chrome, but the map displays for me after 2 seconds in a kind of blurred over-enlarged way and corrects with the more detailed tiles after another two seconds. This computer has Intel graphics, which might or might not make a difference.
