After closing Firefox still runs and only possible by other way such as wiping up. after last update occurred this issue. Also deleting browser chronic takes long time, mostly doing it several times before it finally closes. using Firefox since the beginning it's getting more complicated and not user friendly like it was used to be.... Maybe an android problem or don't know what to do

Recently Firefox has become nearly unusable. Opening links are *_sluggish_*... They eventually complete but it's annoying - I've switched back to brave for now. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175357 seems to be the exact same issue however nothing in the thread resolved my problem.

I'd like to stay with Firefox but it's not worth it at this time. :(

Any thoughts/help are much appreciated.

I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.

I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.

For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.

Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.

I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.

What is the solution please?

I just upgraded my computer to a 1 tb hard drive and installed windows 10. Now firefox doesn't work right, example: I go on Facebook or another site and when I try to type a post I have to type 2 or 3 letters, then wait several seconds for them to appear. I have re-position my cursor and type 2 or 4 more letters and wait again. Can this be fixed?

This has now happened after the last two Mac updates. I get the TLS handshake forever until it times out. Occasionally something gets through (like the Mozilla help pages!) Unlike others who have posted this issue, the same problem holds in Chrome and Safari. I have tried various fixes, including a new identity on my Mac, with no success. Last time the issue seemed to spontaneously resolve after a couple of hours and never reappeared until Mac updated again. While all this is happening, my email works fine, my husband's macbook pro (just like mine) works fine, and my iPad works fine. I have left this message on the Mac help forum, too, hoping someone will have some idea of what is happening. OS Mojave 10.14.6

When Firefox updates, it's an extremely frustrating experience. Enough so that I'm about ready to switch over to Chrome (I already use it for work). Every single time, websites suddenly can't load and all my extensions stop working. It's happening now! I'm writing this from Chrome.

I'm frankly not sure when or why websites start loading again, but it seems to take about a day for things to get back to normal. I've tried closing and reopening Firefox, but that doesn't seem to do anything. It just takes time. I have a 2017 MacBook, OS Catalina 10.15.3.

Is this a known issue? I see all kinds of possible solutions when I try and look for some myself, but oftentimes the OP says they didn't work and then people offer other solutions. I'm wondering why this seems to happen, and if there's a suggestion for how to fix it once and for all—I've never had this problem with Chrome.

After starting Firefox, Sync starts and gets stuck on "Syncing" till I restart. Ever page shows as bookmarked for a while and then they all turn into not bookmarked. Backups won't be saved. Changes to bookmarks and adding new ones won't work either. Have tried a new profile, deleting xulstore.json and places.sqlite and have also tried safe-mode and all of them together. The sync is still in a loop. I have about 56000 bookmarks(I know that's a lot!) but it didn't use to take more than a few seconds. And not being able to see the last sync time by hovering really sucks as well btw.

Thought problem was just on MyPoints when viewing videos but occurred yesterday at InBoxDollas while playing a game.

    • 9/15 - Attached is one of the video screens with the website slowing...... In this group Postables - almost all had this come up. Sometimes just froze there & when I refreshed screen this ... website slowing.... came up & I had to StopIt for video to continue. {Often the screen would be Black as attached shows, sometimes black with an x in the middle so I refreshed}**

Last night I deleted History (except for personal.). Opened MyPoints this morning & went to Postables where half or more of the videos had this popup line stating Website slowing...... & I had to keep clicking on StopIt. I went to the video in image I added but the 2nd from there had this popup - slowing website.... So I guess deleting history helped some perhaps - but is still there. {Searched last night & all the ideas/thoughts listed to stop this went back to 2016. Before deleting History, I went to registry & searched for Firefox Pioneer and also Shockware - None were found.

There is a delay sometimes when I type in the address bar. It only happens when using the address bar, when I use search bars in websites or type in Google Docs there is no delay. I tried opening Firefox on Safe Mode, but the problem persisted. I also tried resetting the all browser.urlbar preferences that I had modified to default, but it still lags.

For one of the client we are experiencing slow browsing issue with Firefox (Firefox 60.7.2esr) .We tried without any customization but it has the same slow browsing experience. However there is one observation though if we use explicit ip address instead .pac in proxy then browsing speed is fine. Our proxy team hasn’t found anything abnormal with proxy configuration and pac file size is also small in kbs.

Hello all,

I am using Windows 10 64-bit. I have Firefox version 66.0.1

Everytime I open Firefox, after about 20-30 seconds, the application hangs. I get the "Not Responding" message in the menu bar, and the cursor pointer changes to a spinning blue circle.

The application hangs usually for up to 2 mins before returning to normal. It then always works perfectly for the rest of the browsing session. I've tried closing in Task Manager and relaunching, but the same thing happens.

Has anyone solved this issue?

Thanks

Despite downloading and installing several "fixes" to the slow running of Firefox I can't believe that it is running so slowly.

Firefox is painfully slow, so much so that 8 times out of ten the page times out and fails to load.

This is completely unacceptable. Firefox has been my browser of choice for about 15 years, but unless Mozilla finds a PROPER fix to this issue I will be changing my default browser to Chrome.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

My OS is Windows 10.

Hello, I recently moved to Firefox from another browser and I am very pleased with it. My usage is that my computer remains on 24/7 with the browser open. I saw a paragraph in the help docs:

"Firefox's memory usage may increase if it's left open for long periods of time. A workaround for this is to periodically restart Firefox."

However this can be inconvenient when you have several tabs open that are logged in to various sites for work, which also retain state which is not restored when the browser is restarted.

Over a few days the memory "leaking" (?) is mounting up significantly as per attached. In summary:

Pre close - system RAM usage 12.5GB Post close browser - system RAM usage 8.1GB (4.4GB drop!!) Re-open browser with same tabs - system RAM usage 8.7GB (actually 9.0GB after all tab views were accessed and put back into the state they were in before closed)

From this simple test I can see that 12.5GB - 9GB = 3.5GB was hogged by the browser and not actually required.

As a developer I am interested to understand the reason for this memory leaking. Is there anything I can do while the browser is open to free it up? Or cause it to not "leak" in the first place?

Thanks,

Andrew

I first noticed this in Overwatch (OW) but also with Diablo 3. These are the only games I play online. OW has a inbuilt tool to look at it's network connection. It shows that about every 5 secs, ping spikes. There might be other stuff happening, like some loss, but I can't say for sure. This translates into choppy gameplay which is unbearable for online FPS. If you look at the attached image, you see that the spikes go to 128 ms. I normally run 44 ms.

This symptom does not start immediately and I haven't been able to check how long it takes to start. It does go away if I close firefox down.

I tried to: - remove all addons - close tabs until only home/empty tab was left - removing/reinstalling firefox.

Nothing really worked.

I am running the latest version of Windows 10 (1803) with the latest version of Firefox 63.0.3. All 64bit.

My computer constantly gets bogged down by Firefox's voracious appetite for RAM! I am constantly clearing my cache & using memory cleaner to bump up my available memory, but with FF using over TEN GIGS OF RAM, at some point there's nothing else to do but reboot FF, and try again. WHY is it using up so much memory???
