Firefox updated to Quantum and blows Win8.1 dual processor out of the water. Usage runs as high as 100% Here's a screenshot. I picked a dull website with no ads running etc. CPU usage spikes every few seconds and Firefox averages really high compared to Internet Explorer. Notice the regular spikes in usage don't correlate with disk usage so I don't think it's causing paging to occur. What has Mozilla done to Firefox to cause this?

Hello, I have troubles with new Firefox Quantum. I have HP Zbook 15u G4. I update firefox from version 56 to 57. From the first time I had stucks when I scroll thru the wepages. But it stuck approximately every 10sec. I tried to refresh firefox and also the "clean instalation". I had remove all extensions but it still same problem with stucks. I also tried to turn the Firefox into emergency mode. Nothing help me. I had to try also update Firefox on my old TP W500 and there is everything allright. I have no idea what I do wrong. What can I do, to solve this problem? Thanks all for help.

I HATE THE NEW QUANTUM!!!!

I upgraded from the latest version (57? 58?) and immediately lost all my session tabs. GONE.. no trace.. Then I backed up my profile to a new folder and noticed that the new quantum was AT A STAND STILL.. Literally not a single thing worked.. 30seconds - a full minute or more before it acknowledges each click of the mouse.. I re-installed it from a clean slate after deleting the profile folder, and all traces (except for the back in a new folder) and re-installed quantum..

AGAIN.. At a standstill..

I RECORDED a video of what I am dealing with:

Since the upgrade Firefox Quantum is not working properly. Ex 1: scrolling is not consistent, when I click and attempt to move the scroll bar is does not move right away. Ex 2: clicking is not consistent, I click a link and it does not respond for several seconds. Ex 2a: clicking on and to close tabs takes several seconds to respond, even clicking to close may get a "not responding" message on the title bar before closing. I saw on previous questions that there may be a compatibility issue with the display adapters. I have the following : Intel HD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA GeForce GTC 1050. I am running Windows 10 64bit. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Ever since I upgraded my Firefox browser to the latest version (57), anytime I hover my mouse pointer or I type anything (like this message for instance) I get between 2 and 5 seconds of delay (sometimes longer) before my computer takes the requested/desired action. Very annoying! I am presently operating with Windows 10... Thank you Bob O'Connor

Since the new version, firefox is incredible slow; it semi hangs when filling in a field... any field including address or search field but also fields in webforms, selecting an item from a drop down list, selecting a destination folder when downloading a file, selecting a file for uploading, etc etc I'm using the 64bit version on a 64bit windows 10 desktop with a nvidia gtx 1050 ti... So hardware is quite ok i guess. On the other hand, once a site is found, loading is incredibly fast!

After upgrading to V57.0 Mozilla is almost impossible to use because it is so slow, for example taking 10 to 20 seconds to open (or close) a new tab. Won't maximise from taskbar icon when minimised (opening another tab before minimising then closing Mozilla from taskbar produces dialog box and maximises). Using Chrome to send this as Mozilla is too slow. Note that Chrome is working perfectly. Thanks

Since updating to version57.0 64 bit Firefox has become unusable with 30 sec wait times for actions to happen after a mouse click. I am using Windows 10 Home Ver 1709 OS Build 16299.64. I have carried out all the Troubleshooting suggestions including reinstalling twice with no change. Microsoft Edge works perfectly as do all the other elements of the PC. Typing this is taking ages as the software cannot keep up and I have to wait 30 sec for the words to appear. After many satisfied years of using Firefox I am close to dumping it.

57.0 does not work with Intel HD Graphics 4000

Symptoms: Very slow with very frequent freezing of Firefox 57.0 for up to 20 seconds.

Environment: Windows 10 Creators Fall 2017 Edition Intel HD Graphics 4000 Driver 07/04/2017 10.18.10.4653 - latest available.

Fixes tried: Disable HW acceleration webgl.disabled=true Neither worked

Tried MS Driver: Uninstalled device and deleted driver. Windows installed a generic driver.

  • Firefox then worked normally.
  • Generic driver is not an acceptable solution because it does not support the size of my monitor - it is a 4:3 window on a 9:16 display.

Reinstalled latest Intel driver - problem recurred.

Hi,

Last night when I turned on my laptop, Firefox automatically updated itself. Immediately, it was very, very slow, then stalled, and crashed. I reopened it a couple more times, but still the same. At one point, it locked up my computer. I restarted it with add-ons disabled, but that didn't help. I've also refreshed it, and that too didn't work. I've used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem like this. My OS is Windows 10 (64-bit) and the rest of the computer is working fine.

Thanks!

I'm ready to quit Firefox. I use Win 7 64 bit, have updated all my video drivers but to no avail, 57 continues to freeze. They supposedly made this faster and better but all I've had is problems. I'm not going to sit here and spend hours trying to diagnose something that worked fine before it updated automatically. What's the deal?

Firefox recently updated to a sleek new look with claims of being one of the fastest browsers out there. I was not disappointed until I started trying to use more than one tab at a time.

Main problem: Opening a new tab consistently freezes Firefox Quantum for 5-10 seconds. Additional problem: Switching between open tabs and a "new tab" also freezes FF for 2-5 seconds.

Attempted solutions: - Firefox refresh - Profile reset - Disable/enable hardware acceleration - Firefox Safe Mode - Full uninstall/reinstall - Change New Tab settings to display only an empty page - Update display drivers - Install Shockwave Flash

None of these seem to have helped, and there are already a few reports about very similar issues with this latest update. Hope for a quick resolution, as FF was always my go-to browser.

Specs: OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit CPU: Intel i7-7500U MEM: 8GB RAM GFX: Nvidia GTX950

Trying to submit a trouble ticket on the slowness of Firefox since the last update. It's so bad I'm thinking of switching to another browser! I've re-set the browser, re-started the laptop and Firefox is STILL slow. There doesn't seem to be a way to contact support directly. This is terrible.

I had been using regular firefox, and with the add-ons I had for saving photos and movies, my browsing experience was basically perfect on my Surface Pro 4. Now Quantum comes and the touchscreen is terrible to use. It seems to randomly be interacting with the sites, it will click things when I do not mean to click them, and holding to use the context menu barely works. Everything used to be usable with a finger, but I frequently find myself having to use the stylus to even get it to recognize input at all.

There does not seem to be any way that I see to calibrate this to make it better.
