Firefox was lagging everywhere: scrolling, switching folders in bookmarks, switching windows, switching tabs, opening settings, scrolling in settings...just everywhere. So I tried downgrading to v. 113. After downgrading via the ling in settings it still showed v. 114. I uninstalled firefox entirely and downloaded the loader for v 112. I installed it and it went thru whole install process to the point of asking to close and start Firefox. It didn't start. When I clicked on the icon it gave me a prompt that it didn't point to anything and asked if I wanted to delete it. I looked in program files folder but didn't find a folder for Firefox or Mozilla. I installed the developer edition and it worked but I don't want dark dev ed. Please help!

I deleted all the windows folders and files that had anything to do with Firefox and reinstalled Firefox and poof, I could start Firefox again. Mind you I had to start with a completely fresh install without any of my personal settings. As for the lag issue, I've been dismissing the requests to downloads Firefox updates and just avoiding a possible return of the lagging, though I know my security is at risk.
