Really disappointing with mozilla browser.it used to be really "GOOD",FAST,FRIENDLY and MOST People like to use this browser.it was along time ago.every time when MOZILLA update new VERSION it became worse and more worst.yes every time the new version become more "WORST".at first it hang and freeze for 5 minutes and then 10 minutes and then 30 minutes and now 1 hour and 30 minutes.mozilla browser make my computer hang/freeze for 1 hour and 30 minutes.what kind of browser is this?

i still use the browser before just because i get used to it and just lazy to switch to other browser but i can't stand it anymore because mozilla hang/freeze for 1 hour and 30 minutes.i need to work and mozilla just make me losing my money,i lose my time and i lose my money as well.

yes,mozilla is a free browser and not a profit browser but WHY DO YOU NEED TO UPDATE TO THE NEW VERSION JUST TO MAKE IT MORE WORST.WHY?WHY YOU CAN'T JUST STAY WITH THE GREAT BROWSER YOU USED TO BE.WHY??WHY TO MAKE NEW VERSION BUT ONLY TO MAKE IT MORE WORST???

okay,you might say there is a way to solve the freeze/hang problem but i have search and used all the method from here and also watch a lot of youtube to solve this stupid problem.but all of them didn't work at all.and i am give up,i am give up to mozilla.i have hold on mozilla browser for 2 years but my conclusion is mozilla will not getting better but go down to the hill.

GOOD BYE MOZILLA FIREFOX,i will not use this browser anymore because this browser is not working at all.it's a crashing browser,crashing my computer,crashing all the system.BYE BYE....................... :(

Note: v55 has been giving users problems. Reinstall v54.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox?cache=no Be sure to read everything here.

If you still want to downgrade, look under; I still want to downgrade. Click the Directory of other versions and languages link. Look for the directory of the version that you want. But, remember that old versions may have security issues.

I am really appreciated for you help FredMcD, i have Reinstall v54.but this will only solve my problem for temporarily.this v54 also hang/freeze although not worst as the v55.

the problem is the mozilla browser itself,i better choose second option/other browser because i don't think i can stand it anymore.

you can make the survey and see how many people are frustrating with mozilla and switch to other better browser.i have hold on to mozilla as long as i can but it's not worth it.

i only want to use a browser without problem and i should switch to other browser 2 years ago but i still used it until i know this will not work at all.

Since i update the browser to v55 all my work never done,i don't even suspect this is because of the browser problem,i am not really a sensitive person but today i finally know,because i can't do anything for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

all i get from mozilla was crashing my computer all the time,hang/freeze nothing more.this is only a browser.

not working,choose another one.

Try to disable multi-process tabs in Firefox. You can disable multi-process tabs in Firefox by setting the related prefs to false on the about:config page.

browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the Be Careful button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.
