So I had to reinstall Win10, So a fresh install with Firefox and a new profile (I imported bookmarks). And now everything is sluggish. Videos and .gif are fine, but the UI is lagging. If I open and close tabs I can clearly see them stutter, before it was fluid movement. It's the same if I zom an image (the images get larger and "pops up") I can see it stutter. Same with right click, it takes a moment before it opens.

It was working fine before, but now it's not working properly. I tried to create a new profile and reinstall Firefox, with and without addons, but didn't help.

After requesting a web page (site) i have to keep to cursor moving over the Firefox work surface while the page is loading, if I don't the request times out and I have the re-request. Why, is there is a setting or something. This was not always the case I'd say over the last year or so.

Firefox cites the Adobe Flash plugin as being out of date (which has happened numerous times previously); the current version of the plugin is downloaded (as done successfully numerous times previously); this time a connection error happens. Repeating the process a few times over a few days gives the same results.

In more detail, the smaller pre-download EXE which is first downloaded from the Adobe website is able to be downloaded, but when that is run it says something like "Download will start shortly", with the download of the app itself never occurring, and a connection error message being eventually displayed.

Although it appears to be an issue with Adobe, I assume that some other Firefox users would have also experienced this problem, and would know a solution.

I am unable to delete emails often. Sometimes if I mark one or two to delete it will work. When I mark several and click delete nothing happens. Also, when I delete an item while it is open and then go back to my inbox it is not deleted. I asked Yahoo support and the suggestion that came up was to change my browser, which I don't want to do. Can you help?! Thanks.
