PLEASE HELP. I have Windows 7 on my laptop and I am using firefox 11. Firefox has been doing good since I downloaded it but not as of today.


Firefox is running very slow and keep's saying not responding for 3 seconds and then does it again repeatedly. Please even when I type words and letters from firefox it types very slow and what I am typing has to catch up with the last thing I typed. It has been doing good ever since I downloaded it but now it sucks bad, not very happy with firefox now. I have windows 7 on my laptop and I have firefox 11....PLEASE HELP Thank you

Hello scottyscott1979,

Try clearing you Java cache, and History.

If you're not sure how to do that go here. --> I'm a Link.

If you still have problems, and are running a 64 bit processor you may want to install Waterfox instead of Firefox. While you install Waterfox, you should update you plugins.

Another standard diagnostic step is to try Firefox's Safe Mode to see whether it is caused by a custom setting or add-on.

First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Backing up your information. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)

Next, restart Firefox in Safe Mode using

Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled

In the Safe Mode dialog, do not check any boxes, just click "Continue in Safe Mode."

Does Firefox behave any better?
