I have the same problem. but only started I would say about 2 months ago. before firefox was ok. I never compared it to another browser until just couple weeks ago. I am using crome now and wow what a difference. I tried everything and its still slow. reset it. reinstall it. disable all the add ons. clear cash. everything with no luck.
