How do I get rid of google-analytics when I open a website?


I am having a problem with opening websites. The website will open and then it closes and in the bottom corner it says "google-analytics" and the green bar only goes to half way and then just sits there. Why? How do I get rid of the google-analytics. It slows everything down.

This happened

A few times a week

Hello Dianne.

Google analytics is a service used by some sites to detect how many users the site has. It should be a problem for the user, so you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
