Extremely slow in every way. Typing, loading, moving and even just scrolling from the top of the page to the bottom. Keeps getting worse. Maddingly frustrating!!! Help!!

Posted

Firefox has gotten extremely slow. Typing, loading, searching, even just scrolling from the top of a page to the bottom. My daughter had the same thing happen to her and had to get her computer stripped down and completely reloaded. I don't have that option. It has no viruses and has been completely freed of all things that could slow it down.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== About a month ago. It is getting worse.

Hmm... try downloading the latest version... but if that doesn't work then try Safe Mode. Not sure what could be causing it...

I found a really easy solution to this problem. Download and install Chrome and use it for a browser instead. There are way to many problems with the latest versions of FF
