Problems with Firefox and Windows 10

Posted

I had got a new laptop a few weeks ago and immediately installed Firefox, which I've always used. The laptop has been really, really slow and I've had problems opening FB games and visiting any other pages with a lot of graphics. I actually thought it was a problem with the new laptop's graphics and was ready for calling Toshiba, but I decided to try Internet Explorer there and hey presto .. everything works just great!

Is there a compatibility issue with Windows 10/Firefox? I've tried resetting Firefox, etc, but to no avail.

Firefox 48.0

  • Shockwave Flash 21.0 r0

A small dialog should appear. Click '''Start In Safe Mode''' (not Refresh).
