Why is FireFox so slow
I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.
I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.
For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.
Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.
I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.
What is the solution please?

Glad to help. Safe Surfing.
Firefox seemed a bit faster after I tried out some of the suggestions but it has gone back to being a tortoise.
It loads Google News UK fully in around 16 seconds.
The Avast browser does it in around 4 seconds.
So after dropping Thunderbird in due to add ons getting screwed time and time again by updates, I have now more or less replaced FireFox with Avast Chrome
