I'm on a winders 7 boxen: 8gigs -The download thingy, the downward arrow that opens a history of recent downloads frequently crashes firefox, Asking download box where on earth my file is doesn't work now (it did at one point.)

-Youtube is stupid slow- as in watching a kunfu B action slow motion frame by glorious frame kind of slow. -"Canvas"(used by schools hated by many) strait up doesn't work: I can't log in, upload, or download-like at all. -file attachments in gmail blow up firefox (as in opening, or adding them). -It's eating up RAM faster than a hutt goes through 200000 google course meal.

Hello,

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Thank you.

You have quite a few extensions installed that can contribute to slow response and memory leaks.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Hi my Firefox is running slow and decided to make it run faster by changing the configuration.
