Firefox 12.0 Freezes/Hangs, Not Responding

Posted

My problem is that Firefox has the constant tendency to lag/hang/freeze whenever I am doing anything in it. This is constantly happening like every 5-10 mins. I always have to go to Window Task Manager and end the task, which restores normal use for about 5 to 10 mins.

I have enable hardware acceleration and disable certain add-ons. I don't have any themes running. I have also check my CPU speed but that isn't the problem.

I was using Chrome but I like Firefox better.

Any solutions would be appreciated.

Hi aminda,

Please update to v13. It may solve your problem because each release includes numerous bugfixes as well as security enhancements and new features.

If it still happens then try to reset Firefox.
