Since upgrading to 6.0, some sites can't be read at all. Instead of regular fonts, there are symbol fonts. Below is only one example. It doesn't happen on every site, only some. I've tried everything on the support page for "web pages not loading properly" (or whatever it's called). Could it be a plug-in problem?

There are constant pauses since updating to Firefox 6. It stops loading pages and says (not responding). This can be up to 10 to 15 seconds each time.

I have disabled add-ons one at a time, and have seen some improvement but it is still happening. Is there another fix? I now only have one add-on and think this is not the solution. From a post an another website, I have heard from others about having this same issue.

Please help!

Since I downloaded the latest version - 6.0 of Firefox, I am having serious slowness of page loads. Nothing has changed in my PC or Network configuration and in the past have had very fast loading of everything - even streaming of videos, etc. The only thing I found in your help about all pages loading slowly was something about a proxy add ons issue - but I don't have that enabled. It seems to be even worst when I am submitting a form -

windows 7. I was on ff5 and life was wonderful. one day while clicking the okay to open firefox button, it was as though I was hijacked into a 6.0 upgrade. from that moment on, my yahoo home page "modified" to some beta version, all of my email page display fonts (in both aol and yahoo) have reduced to a size so tiny I can barely read it, any web browsing freezes about every 5 minutes no matter what I'm doing - whether composing mail, playing a crossword, writing this forum paragraph, switching tabs, opening drop down menus......anything done while the browser window is open. yet, I close out firefox/mozilla and instead open internet explorer and life is totally back to normal. font sizes are large, pages dont freeze, my yahoo page is back to normal............wtf?! I've rolled back to 5.0, back to 3.6 and still I get the freezing, page reformatting, email downsizing, etc. this is AWFUL! it has affected my entire web experience. I dont wish to use IE as it has too many issues of its own.

what did firefox do to my puter and how can this be fixed?

Firefox 6.0.2: Periodic freezes every minute (60")

My problem is as follows: everything worked fine with my Firefox on all my computers. All of them were sync'ed with firefox sync (including my mobile).

Then, on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit desktop (Q9450 CPU, 4Gb of RAM, Asus P5KC motherboard Intel P35-based), I replaced the motherboard and the CPU. Obviously I reinstalled Windows from scratch and Firefox as well. From plugins, I installed only Adblock plus with the Easylist and malwaredomains lists. The same plugin (along with others) were installed previously on my desktop. I initiated a new sync and my bookmarks and everything obviously appeared ok.

On this new hardware platform (Q9650 CPU, 8Gb RAM, Asus Rampage Extreme, Intel X48-based) I experienced strange freezes, which felt that they ranged from 10" to 30". These happen while I am trying to do an action, like fill in a form for example. Firefox does not freeze while it is idle. When this freeze takes place, it affects only firefox. Nothing else gets affected. Made a clean uninstall, re-installed with only adblock plus and enabled firefox sync. Same issue...

It drives my crazy because both the motherboard and the cpu are better than the one I used to have. The system is not overclocked. All my other firefox installations work perfectly.

I should add that I also tried checking with certain sqlite commands the integrity of all sqlite databases. All were ok. Additionally, I deleted this system from sync, completely uninstalled ff, deleted the relevant Application data subdirectories and made a fresh install, only with adblock plus and re-enabled sync. Same issue. Also tried using other memory DIMMs. Same thing again.

Atm, it feels like this is either motherboard related OR there is a "blocker" somewhere. What strikes me a lot is that it works perfectly on all my other computers (remember that all of them are firefox sync'ed) and that the problem appears on the strongest of these machines...

I've read some bug reports in bugzilla that *seem* to be similar to mine, but can't quite correlate the same. Then I stumbled an excellent process explorer from winternals (mentioned in this thread here as well), which you can get from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

Running this process explorer along firefox I noticed that initially all seem fine. Selecting View -> System Information I watched what happened while browsing. Initially, browsing causes some small spikes. Then something *very* strange happens (see attached pic):

   Every 120" cpu load rises for approximately 60".
   During the 60" cpu peak, firefox exhibits the freezing
   firefox is ok during the rest (120-70=50") of the time only! 

Note that this behaviour does not appear immediately at firefox start, but rather appears later on. I can not pinpoint the exact cause at this point. Once this 2 minute cycle starts, it does not stop until firefox exits!

Perhaps this should be submitted as a bug directly, but it felt like I had to gather some expert opinion here to help me and the devs on this.


EDIT: Updated info. From sysinternals, I can see that when the 60" peaks take place, cpu time is dominated by thread MOZCRT19.DLL (see 2nd screenshot). During that time, the following seem to be causing the peak:

mozsqlite3.dll!sqlite3_reset+0x2db1 mozsqlite3.dll!sqlite3_step+0xd9 xul.dll!?CanUseOpaqueSurface@Layer@layers@mozilla@@QAEHXZ+0x1d81 xul.dll!?CanUseOpaqueSurface@Layer@layers@mozilla@@QAEHXZ+0x1c58 xul.dll!?CanUseOpaqueSurface@Layer@layers@mozilla@@QAEHXZ+0x1bc6 xul.dll!NS_GetXPTCallStub_P+0xb59 xul.dll!?IsOriginalCharSkipped@gfxSkipCharsIterator@@QBEHPAH@Z+0x28f9a xul.dll!?GetEffectiveClipRect@Layer@layers@mozilla@@QAEPBUnsIntRect@@XZ+0x659 MOZCRT19.dll!_endthreadex+0x78 MOZCRT19.dll!_endthreadex+0x106 ntdll.dll!RtlInitializeExceptionChain+0x63 ntdll.dll!RtlInitializeExceptionChain+0x36

Since updating firefox to 5.0 it has been freezing and not responding every day. Now it is updated to 6.0 and still doing it. After a few hours of use it will just hang and say not responding. If I open tcpview, I don't see anything strange in the processes but then it starts responding again.

About 60% of the time if I load the login to google adsense it will do this again not responding. Many times when it does this you can see background content from other tabs or even a video that was closed in a previously opened tab.

These updates don't seem to be helping anything with this problem.

I will never understand how this machine behaves and why the matters addressed always requires some kind of technical approach that always misses the very matter at hand.

This time an obviously necessary function disappeared. The "back"- function has to be presented as it was, since the pages visited does not always allow backing. When giving feedback, the "submit"- button did not work.

I am exposed to large amounts of text that makes no real sense, as if the internet preceeded the playing of a real musical instrument, or as if the standards for typewriters suddenly had become obsolete.

The information given is either requiring the understanding of principles never really mentioned, or "user friendly" in a manner that suposes that I have no idea on how a "power on- off"- button works and the like.

Never heard of a "technical retard"? That's me, and you!

It feels like FF is loading something and freezes. I have only four Addons installed:

  • Adblock Plus

Even when scrolling down a page it happens sometimes. It just freezes and I have to wait... I don't have this problem with the IE and Chrome.

I am having problems downloading powerpoint files and word files. When I go to download the file, it saves it as a "application/octet-stream" which I am unable to do anything with. It only started after I upgraded to Firefox 5. I have asked this question numerous times on this forum over the past few weeks and have not gotten a reply. I have been using firefox for years and have not had this problem until the 5 update. Please help.
