Firefox takes forever to download pages from all addresses.

also make sure that you're not running firefox in xp compatibility mode (right-click the firefox desktop icon and go to properties > compatibility in order to check that).

The user agent is saying that you are using Windows XP, is that the computer you used to post this thread?

If you used a Windows 7 computer to post this question, than you have an error in your user agent. Please follow the steps at How to reset the default user agent on Firefox to reset to the default, and then follow the steps at Update Firefox to the latest release to make sure you have the latest version of Firefox (63.0.1)

Your useragent in more system details by post. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0

Since you said Windows 7, the useragent looks like 32-bit Firefox 52.9.0esr being run on 64-bit Windows 7 in Windows XP compatibility mode.

Only the Windows XP Professional x64 Edition can do WOW64.
