Firefox is too SLOW!!!

Posted

Why Firefox here have so many slow downs in Win 7??? Every time I open a new page the Firefox starts to slow down and "Program not responding" This is happening in about 3 months to today... IE and Safira are so quickly to load and open pages, only Firefox is slow...

Slow startup, slow scrolling , slow EVERYTHING!!! For about 3 years I used Firefox but now is almost impossible.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I installed Windows 7
