slowliness

Posted

Hello all,

My Mozilla Firefox web browser is slow and laggy, hangs, and stop responding to my clicks and keystrokes and doesn't seem to be doing anything. This happens when open about 5 to 10 pages at once. A couple of months ago i used to use Windows 7 as my OS, now I am using Windows 10 and have the same problem, so i've started wondering that maybe the problem is in my computer. Currently i am using Ad block. Tried restoring Firefox to its factory default state but the problem continues. Can you guys recommend me some advices how to solve this? I really like mozilla and want to continue using it. Computer is 32bit with Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU N3530 @ 2.16 GHz (up to 2.58) and 4GB of RAM. Sorry for my bad english. :)

Best regards!
