For the past few days, Firefox has been running painfully slowly. I have tried to reset it, reinstall it and running Glary Utilities to clean but nothing has worked so far. I also have Opera and Chrome which are running absolutely fine. The program itself starts up fine but just seems to be very slow to load pages.

I am on Windows 10 with latest updates which is run on a separate SSD drive. Everything else runs very quickly like the resource heavy NoxPlayer.

Please let me know what further details I can provide you with.

Thank you in advance!

I clicked on a popup link from Firefox to speed up my browser. Came back to my computer and everything's gone, all my fast links that I had at the top of my screen, like Facebook, Gmail, everything I've saved for quick links over the past 2 years. I want my computer back, just the way I had it. This is a nightmare. I'd much rather my browser run slow (it really wasn't running slow). I tried a system restore, but it didn't restore things the way I had them. Please, what do I do to reverse this nightmare, and please don't ever offer to speed up my browser again.

Hi! I set up a master password maybe two-three days before. Today as I opened my laptop and firefox, I discovered that I have totally forgot my master password within these few days! I had to use the reset option, losing all the past data, as the warning said. However, just after this such a pathetic task, I remembered that I have the master password! I had three years of log in and bookmark info stored in the firefox! now that i can't even log in my firefox account i am losing them all! Please please help me! Can i have my old login info back? I can provide the master password if needed! It was an act of haste.

Was using FF 79.0. Everything worked great. I upgraded to 80 or so a while back and found that it was taking ~7-10 seconds before FF would begin to load an initial webpage, so I used system restore to go back to 79. I've upgraded to 82.0.2 and the same thing is happening. Tried going back using system restore, but system restore failed for some reason, so I'm now stuck. I haven't had success re-installing FF 79.0. Any ideas why FF would be so slow loading a page? FYI, once I'm on that website, if I click to another page on that website, it loads quickly and normally. Only seems to be when I'm moving to a new website. I'm using Windows 7.

Firefox CPU usage increases dramatically while playing YouTube videos full-screen

I'm using Firefox v 83.0 on Manjaro (Gnome) Linux. YouTube videos in theater/full-screen mode lag if resolution is higher than 360p and cause the CPU usage to burst. This happens for large web pages as well: when I scroll the page, text overlaps and everything is terribly slow. I've checked and this seems to be a Firefox related problem; videos play smoothly both on VLC and Chromium. I've tried all official troubleshooting suggestions: changing to default theme, refreshing Firefox, starting in safe-mode, disabling extensions, disabling hardware acceleration and so on, with no success. I've never had any problems with Firefox for Linux before and I wonder what could be the cause.

I attached screenshots for comparison of CPU usage for the same video playing in theater mode in Firefox and Chromium.

I ve tried numerous things like disbaling the ip,refreshing firefox,clearing cache , restarting system , reinstalling firefox but all went in vain

Could someone please provide a substantial solution to above stated and to why this has occured when i use firefox in first place

I continually have a yellow bar across the top of the page when I open Facebook on Firefox.

It says "A web page is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" then there are 2 buttons and a X next to that question.


My request is for Firefox to tell me it is Facebook causing the problem and how to get rid of it.
