Firefox Quantum 64bit: horrific Performance !

Posted

Immediatly after upgrading FF to Quantum every click has a 3 to 10 seconds delay until a site finally starts loading. Since I am "working" in the web, that way FF is completly useless. Is there anyone else out there having the same problem? Or someone who had and got it solved?

As Quantum is advertising performance and visual improvements for Windows users, like: "Moved the build infrastructure of Firefox on Windows to the Clang toolchain, bringing important performance gains", I can smell the smoke, where my performance problems could result from..

Unbelievable, but I had to install Chrome in the meantime to be able to work on.

Any help appreciated, Marv.
