Firefox automatically upgraded to 5.7. It was running fine before that. Now it's very slow. Hangs up during scrolling, then will continue after about 6 Secs. Hovering the mouse over a command takes about 6 Sec to recognize the cursor is there. Please tell me how to revert back to 5.6

hi bill, thanks for reporting this. could you go to the firefox menu ≡ > help ? > troubleshooting information page and take a look in the Accessibility section if accessibility is set to "true" there.

if yes, can you please copy & paste this whole section into a reply in the forum and see if the following fixes the performance problem: go to the firefox menu ≡ > options > privacy & security panel and under permissions check the setting to prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser.
