I have refreshed. Uninstalled (removed all folders and edited all Firefox entries out of the registry and Users folder and rebooted and reloaded and it is still unusable. Added suggested add on, no help. I did a copy and paste from the safe mode to get the troubleshooting information. Help

hi, we are currently aware of a bitdefender signature update that's causing some havoc for firefox users - are you using bitdefender security products on your system by chance? https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/69zsnj/help_super_laggy_firefox_browser_08052017/dhbles0/

After turning off Bitdefender Firefox works. I spoke to Bitdefender and they are totally amazed that there is a problem (yeah right). but with Bitdefender off Firefox works correctly. Hopefully they get this fixed.

Update on bitdefender issue . If you update Bitdefender does the problem go away ?


Bitdefender FREE AV version was recently causing crashes and hangs in Firefox 53. Sometime yesterday the Bitdefender people rolled back their problem update of Bitdefender. If you make sure your Bitdefender is fully up to date then as far as we know at present that should not have bad effects on Firefox.
