I have just reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop computer thinking that it might help with my Firefox slowness problems. I have also ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware and Avast Antivirus where there were no infections. There is a delay just as I am typing on the keyboard to you. I have the most up to date version of Firefox, Java, and Adobe Flash Player. I regularly use Ccleaner to delete temporary internet files, cookies, etc. and I also use it to clean my registry. I have all of the latest windows updates although I am not using Windows 10 yet. Please help me, I am at a loss and not sure what to do at this point. I have some plugins though I do not have any add ons. Will plugins cause lagging/slow browser? I have not tried another browser though I'm ready to switch to one if I cannot resolve this problem. I really like Firefox and don't want to change. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?


Start your Computer in safe mode with networking. Then start Firefox. Try Safe web sites. Is the problem still there?
