Everytime I load a new page this keeps popping up and loading even when I switch to a loaded tab got an idea as to what's up?

Posted

I've been using and updating Firefox for the last five years or so. Today was just another day until I opened a new browsing session and Firefox began doing this. Is Firefox suppose to load tabs like this?

I had recently updated Firefox to version 50, and I just assumed it was a quirky new feature that I didn't like, so I opened up Classic Theme Restorer extension and looked for a way to disable pages to load like this between tabs. Ultimately, my search was futile and now I'm stuck being really annoyed with the way it's acting.

I just resolved the issue. Multiprocess Windows was on, disabling it fixed it completely!

Thank you for your help!

I reverted back to Firefox 49.2 and it seems to do the trick, don't know what's the problem with 50 but It's working just fine if not a little slow.
