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?

  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.

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.

Ever since updating my Firefox to version 57 for Windows 7 desktop (64-bit) I can barely browse without it getting stuck, hanging and/or not responding. I constantly have to clear my history and restart Firefox for it to work again. Often, I can't even do that, I have to open my task manager and end Firefox that way. This is driving me crazy.

I have UN-checked the forced hardware acceleration option, but it has done very little to resolve my problem. Please, I am NOT a computer wizard. I only know basic stuff from using a computer for many years; however, I know little about troubleshooting complex issues. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You

I updated to FF57 yesterday or day before & I'm pulling my hair out.... Everything is lagging or unresponsive when typing into search it can take up to a full minute just for the results to load this was not the case before upgrading!!!. Another thing I noticed is I'm seeing messages in the bottom left that says stuff like waiting for, reading, transferring data from. other issues i think are just frustration from new format i suspect as some things dont work like saving things to Pinterest ect. But I can't deal with the major lagging & unresponsiveness it's really excessive... when the page finally does load then I'll have frequent issues trying to click within page, scrolling ect. & even trouble closing out tabs...One other odd issue that also began today which may or may not be related but i figured it's worth a mention just incase it's relevant, on 2 different accounts my passwords wont work at all from this laptop says they're incorrect but i can go on my phone & enter them without issue... & caplock is off I turned on view password to make sure it is being entered correctly .I researched about trying to go back to previous ff but it said not to go back to ff56 but i think it was version 52 with some letters after it i forgot what they are but that version would have security patches until may or june of 2016 but the directions seemed kind of complicated...I dunno what to do but I can't deal with all the trouble loading pages/results, & unresponsiveness. Please forgive me but I'm not all that tech savvy so I need things kind of simplified if anyone can help me or has suggestions re: how to fix all this lagging stuff. I'm still using Windows 7 on a dell xps im not sure what other info you need my apologies & thank you in advance for any help or thoughts you may have to offer.

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

Hi everyone.

Web pages frozen and won't update after sleep, closing and re-starting Firefox Quantum cures problem indefinitely until next sleep, if it is of any help, I don't know if this is linked, but when Firefox has been open and used for a while entering text on a page becomes slow i.e. I type several letters and there is a delay until they appear on screen, I may type say 4 letters then have to stop until it catches up.

I'm using windows 10 on a Toshiba laptop, all drivers etc up to date, previous to updating to Quantum I did my usual clean up and de-frag to get rid of any rubbish etc. all other programs run without any problems.

Thanks.

Hello everyone! I am new to mozilla support, but I am using firefox for a long time. Recently, I updated it and noticed, that websites are loading very slow. Interface works great and fast, but loading websites is horrible experience. I use the Firefox for IOS and it works great. when trying to load pages on windows, I can't even scroll till the webpage is fully loaded. if page has a lot of javascript, browser becomes unresponsible and I have to restart it. I have even tried to disable javascript and loading images, but nothing helped. Any ideas how to fix this and make firefox browsing faster? otherwise the new version is useless for me, because I am wasting a lot of time with it. Thanks in advance.

Ever since the update, I'm running at near dial-up level slowness. Some websites I outright can't use. YouTube can't even load the first five seconds of an advertisement for me to skip, half of the stuff on facebook( images, videos, etc.) won't load, and even all text sites won't half-load unless I refresh the page 6-10 times. Before the update, I worked all of this just fine, but since the update a few days ago, my internet has been so slow that molasses in January looks speedy by comparison.

Anyone know how to speed it back up? Or should I just switch over to Chrome/etc.?

So I used the windows restore option to get back to the previous version. Worked fine until the firefox updated itself again.
