Hi, Forum does not work like others, as we are all Volunteers so there is no real public posting it is one on one trouble shooting that may have 5 volunteers try to figure it out.

it is maybe a bit to much for it,

Please follow this in which I hope you can find on your Mac Book.

To be Checked and turned off unless needed for accessibility : Please : go to the Firefox 3 Bar Menu --> Options --> Privacy & Security panel and under Permissions check (put a tick in the box) the setting to Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser.

Multi-Processor Support : Go to the 3 Bar Menu then Options --> General --> Performance and untick everything. change the recommended size lower then see how it runs. Note: 1 = No Multiprocessor = slow again. Try 2 Restart Firefox after making these changes please. Note : Hardware Acceleration is for Video Card, Monitor to see if remain off or to turn back on.

Only Disable as last resort.

Multi-processor Can completely disable it this way in about:config : dom.ipc.processCount set to 1 browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false

Only move to esr if low ram and old system.

Firefox Extended Release Version : Firefox ESR does not come with the latest features but it has the latest security and stability fixes.

If do please :

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

SO what happens with this and yes I do know am not using Mac terms, I have misplaced it. So you did everything on that list.

You checked that Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser was Checked ?

You went to Multi-Processor Support : and turned down to 2 and experimented ?

You then then did this : Multi-processor Can completely disable it this way in about:config  ?

You then uninstalled Firefox then installed Firefox Extended Release Version ?

Is that all correct ?
