Why is Firefox so slow!! It takes 10 min to load, then 5 min to change between different pages. I have version 22, it keeps getting worse.

It seems the newer the version of Firefox, the slower it gets. What is the BEST version to download to use? This used to be a fast browser, now it takes 10 minutes to load. I have done everything mentioned on the help page, cleared history, cache, scanned the computer, removed Firefox and reinstalled it, but it just doesn't run.

Chrome runs circles around Firefox, it will load in about 10 seconds and will work in the games WAY better than Firefox - using games is totally impossible with Firefox. I need to know which version is the fastest and has the best rating. It seems the newer it gets, the worse it runs.

HELP!

This should be a simple process, as I have done it before on other computers - but the icon is only in my dock as a "?", which I click on , and then it opens up to the Fox/World icon. As soon as I shut down the computer - the Firefox icon disappears.

I just started having a problem on a couple websites when I stream movies. The audio is out of sync with the video. I have experienced this a few times in the past and could stop the playback and restart it to solve the problem. That is not fixing the problem now. I keep my cache cleared out so that is not the culprit.

It's only on a couple websites and they always played fine before. How do I track down the problem?

                                          thanks.

Hello,

I used to move firefox cache folder to my secondary (350 MB) ssd drive. However since a few firefox versions back the way I did it (using about:config and finding cache parent directory ) doesn't work anymore. And by doesn't work I mean there is no setting like that. The question is: is it possible to move firefox cache folder? If so - how can I do it?

Thanks in advance, Tomasz.

Firefox, out of the blue, started to always show my tabs from the last session when it is started. I checked that Firefox not listed in the task manager list after closing. So I tried the following:

- changing the option "when Firefox starts" to all three of the available choices - change the browser.startup.page setting to 0 manually via "About:config" - starting Firefox in safe mode.

None of these changed the behavior. It still opens the tabs that were last opened.

I am running V25.0. Any suggestions? This is a major annoyance.

My current laptop is about to pack in and I want to save my Favourite website bookmarks before it does. I am getting a new laptopn on which I will install Firefox again. How do I go about saving the Bookmarks to an external hard drive and how to I reinstall them when I am ready, onto my new laptop? I can do basic computer things but not complicated ones. So, if someone could explain EXACTLY what I need to do would be very helpful. Cheers

Firefox Hanging Every Few Seconds

I just installed brand new Firefox 25.0.1 on a Mac Mini (running Mountain Lion 10.8.2) just two weeks ago, and since day one I've been having the same problem that lots of other people are having, and that's the constant half-second delays that happen about every 4 to 5 seconds. Even typing this post, the delays are there. Pulling down menus and selecting items, trying to move the scroll bar, or playing youtube videos, Firefox keeps hanging briefly every few seconds. It's maddening.

I never had any problem with Apple's Safari browser (the only reason I switched to Firefox was because Safari Ad Block stopped working and I needed Download Helper). That this problem exists on PC and Mac means it's nothing specific to the computer, but to Firefox.

What I wish would not be given the same generic advice that never seems to work, like reinstall Firefox (it was already installed cleanly, what would a reinstall do?), but have somebody at Mozilla actually explain what is causing the problem, or if they plan to ever fix it.

So far I only have a temporary fix, which is to completely quit out of Firefox and re-run it. That solves the problem for a little while, but within an hour or two, or three, it's back to the same problem. There are plenty of other threads that mention this or similar problems (see below), but all seem to be on PC's not Macs, and none seem to give a 100% universal fix for everybody.

How to stop Firefox from hanging and lagging? firefox freezes every few seconds even with latest update and pluging my Firefox freezes every a few seconds , so will you fix it ?

I work at a facility that uses a company intranet to access our database. The database uses popups extensively for important information. Problem is that Firefox absolutely WILL NOT stop blocking popups no matter what I try. Initially, I added our database server to the exception list. This worked for a while but soon thereafter it resumed blocking important popups. I then completely disabled the popup blocker (options >> content >> unchecked "Block popup windows"). This did not work until I closed and reopened Firefox. About a week later (today!), Firefox again resumed blocking popups. I rechecked my settings to confirm that Firefox still claims to have the popup blocker disabled. At this point I am at a loss as to how to proceed. I have reviewed other similar questions, and to my frustration (and certainly to theirs even more so), the people asking are being repeatedly told to disable the popup blocker even after explaining that they already have. Help would be much appreciated.

I've been using Firefox for quite a while, but it has recently begun opening every previously open tab when I restart a session. I only want the tabs I selected for my home page to open. I've tried going to the options and selecting "Show a blank page" on startup, but even that is ignored and all of the prior tabs open on each new start. I've rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox, but the problem remains.

When I watch a video on YouTube, the comments section does not load. Comments do load with other browsers (e.g.Safari.)

This has occurred since the change in YouTube's comment policies, November 2013.

Google Product Forum question "Why can't I see any comments on Youtube?" showed suggestions to disable Ad Block. I either don't have Ad Block or am not seeing it in my add-ons. Is there another add-on that could be causing the YouTube comments not to load?
