I downloaded this Firefox two days ago, worked fine until today It took 5 minutes to get to this point. I had Firefox before but got slow, got no help, left for Edge. I'm sick of Microsoft cramming crap down my throat, would really like to stay with Firefox, but not at this speed.

I have recently switched from Chrome to Firefox because I share the open internet mission of Mozilla. However for almost all surfing I do, Firefox is much slower on macOS than Chrome or Safari. Are there efforts at Mozilla to work on this, and how can I help?

Thanks Jonas

Since few days (I think even before update to 76) my firefox loads much much slower. It started in 2-3 seconds on my notebook before. Now it is 12 seconds. On my desktop (no firefox account, no similiar add-ons, completely different setup) it is also slower. It started in 1 seconds, now it is 2-4. Did mozilla change something in the background?

What I mean by start is: browser opens up as fast as before but is stuck on white page, not loading it, circle just circling around. I can open 20 tabs and none of them starts to load before ~10 seconds of time passess. Then they just start loading normally (All at once). If I open new tabs they open normally. Problem is only after closing and opening firefox again, even with only 1 tab with google.com as homepage. It looks like firefox is doing "something" on bootup. But what? Maybe checking certificates or sth? It might be something not related to firefox version, because I think I had this problem on 75 yesterday before updating too. I tried clearing cache but it did not help.

I have my computer on most of the day and will have Firefox running in the background while I go back and forth to it while working. When I break, I will shut Firefox down but leave Windows 10 running. When I come back and reopen Firefox, it will sometime take several minutes to reopen the homepage or any url entered manually. The thing is, it doesn't happen every time, but enough to become annoying. I find if I reboot Windows, it works fine again. While Firefox is running slow, other browsers run normally. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Hi and in advance thank you very much ! I'm a long time user of Firefox, and there is a very strange problem on my Firefox since one week. When I'm on Google and I'm clicking a link, the website is so long to load, and sometimes finishes with a "Time delay exceeded". When I'm writing the URL in the URL field, it's very slow too. When I'm searching the same thing on a different search engline, it's working very fast. Then, when I write the URL in the URL field, it's suddenly very fast. On other navigators no problem at all.

I tried to : uninstall firefox, repair firefox, restart in safe mode/without modules, launch with another profile, nothing helps. I was thinking about DNS resolving problem, so I tried automatic DNS, 1.1.1.1, 208.67.222.222 in the properties of my network card and nothing helps.

With another Windows 10 account on the same computer, Firefox works perfectly. With another computer and the same Firefox account, Firefox works perfectly.

I also tried Malwarebyte and ZHPCleaner. Malware found nothing, ZHP found some things on Firefox, fixed it, but nothing changed.

Well again thank you so much to spend time to help me solving this issue.

Best Regards

Hello,

When using Firefox, my network speeds are brutally slow (~35 Mbps), while Edge is (~300 Mbps, which is my service speed). I am hardwired through my router, but it is the same wired or wireless.

I have literally tried every single step through Firefox's troubleshooting and have even completed what I thought to be an entire uninstall and deletion of every single Firefox file on my laptop. Upon uninstall and deleting of EVERYTHING, I reinstalled only to be greeted with "Hey, it looks like you reinstalled Firefox, want to refresh everything?". I did (another) refresh and still, same speeds.

Is there a way to 100% remove Firefox and reinstall? I want my laptop/Firefox to treat each other as never have met, in hopes that I can install and get the speeds I should be getting.

Interesting note, Firefox for Android gets ~300 Mbps no problem on my phone.

Thanks in advance!

I have upgraded to 70.0 and now there is a 6 second delay on loading first site. I have firefox starting in private mode and without a home page. this loads at its usual speed. However, when I click on a bookmark the system hangs for 6 seconds before the site is presented. Subsequent sites load rapidly as usual. I have tested with other browsers and sites and the problem is specific to Firefox and not specific to the site being load. Once loaded, if I open an additional Firefox window this loads sites rapidly. I have been using Firefox for many years and the problem has only occurred since I upgraded to 70.0.

Can anyone help please.

I click on Stop but it never really helps. How do I find out which site or program is slowing down my browser and eliminate it? Thank you.

Hi,

I'm having issues since a while with Firefox on Windows 2016 RDS servers.

At random occasions Firefox will be extremely slow. It can take up a 2-3 minutes before being available to browse or access anything in the software. I have already search a lot and tried many different things (refresh Firefox, uninstall, reinstall, create new profile, disable hardware acceleration, use ESR version, disable antivirus, safe mode, etc.). Nothing worked. Firefox is still randomly extremely slow.

I thought this might be the computer itself being overloaded, but no, it isn't.

We use roaming profile, the appdata folder is redirected to a network folder. So I thought this might be the issue. I created a profile specifying a local folder. Didn't fix the issue.

I did a procmon on Firefox process, it doesn't hang... but I'm fare from being an expert, and since Firefox has many process, it's hard to tell which one is slow...

Anyone have an idea?

Thanks!

I am a Firefox user of the first versions but honestly if I continue with these problems I will stop using them ..

Upgraded to Firefox 63.0 and all of a sudden started to see extreme sluggishness on every website I visited, especially Facebook, YouTube and some auction sites. I played around with the security settings, because this is what I saw changes in from my previous browser version to this new one, and that did not correct the sluggishness. I removed 63.0 and went back to my last browser 62.0.3 and bam, sluggishness gone. What changes were made that could have made this occur?

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.

When I open new tab it just shows blank screen and it keeps loading forever, tried safe mode and reinstalling and it doesnt change a thing. Also tried disabling addons, pluggins one by one and my f secure antivirus with no success. Problem doesnt happen all the time, but it does at least 70% of the times. Sometimes it helps if i copy the page address and open it with a open in a new tab button.

Hi,

I'm trying to use Firefox to debug a slow website. Now, I know this website is slow - that's what I'm working on. So I don't need to see the "a website is slowing down your computer" message, I just want to be able to tell Firefox that - for this particular site - I don't want to see that message, I just want you to automatically wait and don't ask me again.

Is it possible to do this? Or if not on a site by site basis, then just disable the message altogether with a setting? It makes it especially difficult to use Firefox for this problem, but I don't want to have to switch to another browser to do it.

Thanks

Windows 7 Professional Firefox 64 bit stable, up to date

Its is running on a 10 year old slow computer, the add-on script is unresponsive because it is running on a slow computer.

I had a similar problem with "Warning: Unresponsive script" but was able to get rid of those annoying notices by setting dom.max_script_run_time to zero.

I do not want to stop the script, the add-on adds security. I just do not want to ever see one of these notices on that computer ever again. I have to deal with them dozens of times each day and only use the computer for a few hours. Each time it interrupts what I'm doing to take me to a different tab to slowly deal with the problem.

The problem isn't the add-on script being slow, its the computer being slow. And the fact that the warning gives me no way to disable it so I keep getting it time after time after time...

Thanks

I do not know what version I am running or where to find that info. I am running Windows 7. I am not interested in updating my operating system to solve this problem. Unfortunately, I will probably just switch back to "Chrome!"

I really appreciate any help that can be provide in clear current instructions. I am sure this question has been asked before. Are there a series of well documented, clear (to lay people) steps to diagnose and address this issue? I took C programming and Fortran decades ago, but I honestly do not understand how to get around "behind the scenes" in these operating systems!! LOL.

Super Thanks! I really want to get back to work - on my computer!!
