You can check if it helps if you start Firefox in Safe Mode by holding down the Shift/Options key.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.


Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox profile folder.


Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test.
