For the past several days, while all other websites work as fine as before on Firefox, Wikipedia works very badly: it responds very slowly and often gets stuck half-way before opening a page. I have tried several solutions but the problem recurs. On a different platform, Safari is connecting fine. Any suggestions?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Today I tried to launch Firefox from the Norton Support menu, It took more than two minutes to load. After that it takes two minutes on restart. When it finally runs all websites a lightening fast, except for Norton, which is very slow if at all. Three sessions with norton chat support have not improved anything and following the Firefox troubleshoote including reinstallation have not solved either.

Hi to all readers ! I have been running Firefox as my browser on a Linux PC system for many years. I do a lot of web searching for scientific information, so I have many Add-ons installed. Over the years, the boot-up time has steadily increased to around 25 secs so, about a month ago, I systematically tested the Add-ons to find which was slowing things down and discovered that AdBlock Edge was the culprit. I replaced this with plain AdBlock and my boot-up time dropped to about 4 secs --- which was fine. However, over the past week or two it has begun to creep up again even though nothing in the configuration has changed. I am running Firefox Ver:36.0.1. for Linux Mint Ver 17 ("Qiana") on a Dell GX-520 tower with 2 GB of memory. Firefox is the only app running on this machine. All the up-dates for "Mint" have been installed. Boot-up time is now averaging about 11 secs with variations between 7-13 secs. Can anyone please explain why the boot time varies when nothing on the system has been changed and why it is apparently increasing from an average of 4 secs. Many thanks and best regards to all readers -

Firefox has been my browser of choice for about 6 years. On 3/16 /15 it stopped working. I tried all of the suggestions. I then completely uninstalled Firefox and Mozilla Maintenance. I restarted and checked my disks and memory. All other browsers: IE, Safari, Chrome & Opera work fine. I installed from Firefox Setup 36.0.3.exe this morning. Same problem. Works for about 5 minutes and then hangs.

When I bring up a spreadsheet online in google docs Firefox starts dimming the screen, others tabs run slow. The screen dimming will last, for 2-3 minutes, and then clear up, 2-3 minutes later it will dim again. The fewer tabs I have helps, but not the answer. IMO the problem has gotten worse over the few upgrades. I have an HP 2000 Laptop, CPU 1300.000 MHz, memory 7586 MiB.

Thx, Larry

On W 8.1 with all latest OS updates. Firefox all latest, 36.0

Video of problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SqlTmIvcoLc

The only options I have in my modem/router's Compal-ch7486e-70684 (CH) setting is QoS, which I have turned on since months ago.

Chrome experiences the same problem.

After having switched to startech usb 3.0 adapter the slowness went away (about 2 months ago). I concluded that my CPU is poor and the adapter now did some of the computing power. But then the slowness came back

www.startech.com%2FNetworking-IO%2FAdapter-Cards%2FUSB-3-to-Gigabit-Ethernet-NIC-Network-Adapter%7EUSB31000S

From my log:

Maybe 1-2 months ago Was connected to my WIFI (DLINK DAP-1522 connected to CH). Google calendar took a really long time to load. Switchted to my Samsung S3's hotspot. Gcal was quick to load. Then switched back to WIFI and it was as quick. On the other hand making a Facebook post took a really long time to load via WIFI but was quick via the hotspot.

If I have the slowness, and detach-attach network cable the slowness is gone.

22 Mars 2015 Closed almost all processes, it did not help Disabled all firefox addons. This made problem go away.

But now it's back again.

On the 22th of Mars I removed cookies in Firefox. It's the same on WIFI as corded. Power options are set to high performance.

edit: before making this post there has been 1 day since I made a new profile. This seemed to help in the beginning, but now I see signs the slowness is creeping back. Some pages definitely takes too long to load.

I recently purchased a new HP laptop with Windows 8. I had been using Firefox and Thunderbird on both my old laptop and desktop with no problem. However, since trying to use both on my new machine, Firefox has slowed down to the point of making it impractical to use. And whenever I log into Thunderbird, it takes at least 10 minutes and more before Thunderbird becomes responsive.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Are there any solutions?

I've noticed this over the past several versions of Firefox for OS X, and under Mavericks as well as Yosemite, on 2 different Macs of Mine: a 2009 Mac Pro and a 2012 Mac Book Pro.

The issues are: sometimes Firefox will not create a new tab or window when I press those keyboard commands, and sometimes, I am unable to type into form fields. Restarting Firefox will remedy the problem, until it happens again.

Otherwise, I find Firefox to be a great browser! Thank you for producing it.
