Why is my Mac OSX Firefor 17 so slow?

Posted

I get the spinning disk whenever I try to play Farmville on facebook. This iMac is only 2 yrs old & it's terrible. Takes forever to generate reports in Family Tree Maker too.

Chosen solution

Is the family tree maker online or is that the standalone program? if it is the standalone, that is not a Firefox problem.
