Since a few weeks my Firefox is lagging extremely on virtually all websites. That's for scrolling up and down (first no reaction, then it jumps an uncontrolled distance) as well as watching videos for example on youtube. I have no issues using Chrome - loads faster and scrolls and plays videos smoothly, so it doesn't seem to be my laptop.

I refreshed - didn't work. Deleted and reinstalled - didn't work. Finally I disabled all add-ons and plugins - didn't work.

I'd hate to move to Chrome, but if I can't fix it I don't have a choice. At the moment Firefox is unusable.

Thank you in advance for your help.

the above just happens too often and im getting crashes [sorry] doesn't cut it . your stay signed in works about as well as a screen door on a submarine. i can see an occasional check to sign in, but it is sad when i have to jump hoops just to do a quick check on my emails. i purposely wanted to get away from google chrome as it is too invasive . i want privacy and i dont expect my wife to know what she is probably getting as the next gift by looking at advertisement at right of screen . i would like firefox to work please correct these problems. your commitment to a open internet would be nice. even putting so much information under signing to get to a comment page is a little much, an email addy should be sufficient. Simple works best ,easy to track your own data and rectify any problems. The time storing , sorting and reading data that has nothing of relevance diminishes productive work load and execution.

I ran the "Refresh" and now I don't have Morning Coffee. Where do I get it?

Additionally, I can't access the "Make this page my Home page" utility either, and since I had Morning Coffee opening all those tabs as my home page, I'm a bit confused. Right now I'm using the "Most Visited" and opening all the tabs. Is this the "New Normal" Helpful suggestions of a not overly technical nature appreciated. Thanks. I just checked your educated guesses about my current browser and OS, and I'll just add that I don't knowingly use Chrome anything.

Every time firefox is launched, the spinning beach ball appears, sometimes immediately, sometimes within a minute or two, every time. Must force quit. I have re-installed Firefox and also have refreshed with no change. Unless this is fixed, Firefox is unusable. I am running OSX 10.9.5 on a 17" MacBook Pro.

I cannot access any information through Firefox, because t always hangs.

i just updated to the latest version of firefox, now it will not let me use the usajobs.gov website. it keeps saying that it is untrusted, and since it uses https, it can not have an exception so i can not continue to the page. It also says that the site is not presenting trusted identification. i need to check my job applications, and search for jobs. this needs to be fixed asap. it does allow my to go to the home page, but when i try to log in, the message pops up.
