Usage: using Firefox quantum and opening pages just fine.regular use with about 15 tabs open. notebook enters standby because i just closed the lid. lets wait 30 minutes and go back to work.

Symptoms: Continuing to work on Firefox Quantum after reopening my notebook lid and exits standby is almost impossible due to slowness. click a tab, open a page, write something, it takes more than 30s seconds to do it.

Temporal Fix: Either never go to stand by or close firefox and reopen. After closing and reopening, everything goes back to normal.

Reproducible: yes, looks likeeverytime.

My Quantum update only works after a refresh, the moment I start loading pages, it slows down and then freezes on a page - the only way out is to "end-task"

Windows 7, 64 bit -

After a refresh Quantum response degrades as pages are loaded. After loading say "The Wall St Journal" clicking to get a new tab takes a second, similarly scrolling the side scroll won't respond right a way. It takes a second. When it does move it will stop following the mouse, then when you stop the mouse it will jump to where the mouse is. Things get progressively slower and jumpier until it either blows up itself and gives a message (that the failure has been reported) or a page freezes and you have to CNTRL_ALT_DEL out of it and end the task.

How do you fix this?

I spent 11 hours this past Tuesday trying to fix the new Firefox 57. As there is a hesitation when scrolling and typing. And the hesitation also happens when clicking on something. ..... From what I have read here Im not the only one this is happening to.

  What a Bummer.  so tonight I went back to Firefox 56.0.2   and that works fine.   I hope Mozilla finds a Fix for this problem and soon.  
Thanks for letting me vent.  Yours Bob Dalton.

After install of 57.0 my browser was unusable, very very slow, I have reverted back to 56.0.2. Any ideas as to why?

I did read about disabling my add-ons to improve the speed, but I didn't do that since I only have a couple. I use SQLite Manager a lot, I guess the Amazon one can go, but that isn't really the point.

This faster, newer, better Firefox is supposed to be amazing, but for me it is not.

I have reverted back to 56.0.2 and disabled automatic updates, now I'm back to working again.

Just got 100Mg update on virgin cable. Firefox was working perfectly. Downloaded Update to 57.0 .... Everything seems to have slowed down. Firefox front screen comes up Ok; start typing and occasionally there is a delay before letter shows. Then will connect to site quite normally. Select an option (say a page on Amazon) and it can "freeze" for about 20 secs? before opening page. Scrolling down page it will seem to scroll for 2-3 secs then stop for 10 then start again. I've given up on selecting video; sat there for minutes waiting to load. Running Windows 10; 4Gb ram ; AMD X4 processor; 64 bit (I'm 74, so dont know what most of this means). Any help would be most appreciated. Please use words a wrinkly like me can understand. Thanks

I am experiencing unacceptable lagging and/or unresponsiveness since the last update of Firefox. I tried the "refresh Firefox" option as instructed in the troubleshoot but didn't help. So I used the windows restore option to get back to the previous version. Worked fine until the firefox updated itself again.

Has anyone less encountered this? I use only the basic Firefox. All aspects of Firefox are now incredibly slow. All sites are slow, scrolling is slow. It is so slow that I have gone back to using Chrome. Chrome is working fine so I know it's not my machine. The startup time graph has skyrocketed the last few days.
