Firefox 45.0 crashes and is extremely slow scrolling on some sites. Had to restore v. 44.02 that works properly with all sites. Anyone else with scrolling 45.0?

Posted

V. 45.0 has both intermittent crash and scrolling issues for some sites. Restored version 44.02 and the problems were eliminated for those same sites with the scrolling issue. Being used on a 27" iMac (2012) running OS 10.8.5. The scrolling on some sites is so interminably slow that this browser version is unusable.

In the address bar, type about:crashes<enter>. Note: If any reports do not have BP in front of the numbers/letters, click it to submit them.

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

Using your mouse, mark the most resent 7 - 10 crash reports, and copy them. Now go to the reply box below and paste them in.
