Sluggish performance in Windows 8.1

I'm observing very sluggish performance in Firefox on my Surface Pro using Windows 8.1 RTM. I can't quite track down what's going on, but some startups take as much as 10-12 seconds. Additionally, the overall browser performance is sluggish.

I've tried running in Safe Mode and it's still quite slow.

Chosen solution

There is (on Nightly) a version of firefox for Metro

SEE: How do I launch Firefox for Windows 8 Touch?

  • kinda unstable

Have you tried using Firefox nightly? It's quite a bit better on Windows 8, http://nightly.mozilla.org/
