When I click on a link within a site (MSN) to play a new story the video runs in slow motion. This started to happen suddenly. I have tried to refresh Firefox and updating some add-ons but still have the same problem. What can I do to fix it. When I try it in IE it works fine but not in Firefox. Help!

Hello, about a week ago, out of nowhere, Firefox began to load many webpages very slowly (not all, but many). Especially yahoo/google/gmail and the like.

I didn't do anything to cause that (no new add-ons). I refreshed/reset firefox, I even deleted it and reinstalled it. Nothing. It is still extremely slow when IE and Chrome load the same pages at the same time almost instantly on my extremely fast internet.

I'm about to give up on this browser if it keeps doing this.

Any other advice?

For the last year following an Firefox upgrade and since then, it takes the better part of 3-4 minutes for FF to load my homepage. Chrome and IE are still ok?

As previously stated. Whenever I turn on my Windows PC, and after the Desktop loads, I get no response from the Firefox icon to load my home page for 3-4 minutes. This happens without fail anytime I'm starting (not restarting) the PC. If I click the icon more that 1x I just get that many windows opening when it finally does start. No other browser is doing this. I have all the auto checks and updates turned off as well. I have tried changing my homepage to no avail. Thanks Dan Meno in Indpls.

I'm new to firefox, but something is wrong. Whenever trying to connect to ANY website it takes forever or "Connecting..." and after it finally connects to the page it loads very slow. That is if it doesn't get stuck on connecting forever.

I have tried new profiles, resetting firefox, erasing all history cache cookies etc, and disabling anti-virus. All of my hardwarae usage is low. This includes cpu&core, ram (pagefile disabled), hard disk highest active time, gpu, everything. I tried disabling hardware acceleration. No add-ons. No extensions. I tried disabling all 3 plugins. no services.

I have 300mbit/s internet hard wire with no data loss.

It also never closes. No matter if I press the menu button then the power button. It runs in the background and the only way to stop it from running is to end the task in task manager.

I have a new computer and it takes forever to load some websites. I have never had this problem before. I get a little ping pong on the browser tab. Facebook has sometimes taken 3 or more mintues to load but other random sites have too. I seems to be getting better after a couple of months. I have high speed internet from comcast and I checked the speed so that's not the problem. Other browsers don't seem to have the same problem but I don't have any history with them. WHAT IS THIS and what is that little dot that ping pongs?

I'm getting this on HSN.com, Wikipedia, Facebook. It flashes for a few seconds and then is gone faster than I can select an option, unless my cursor just happens to be in the upper right corner at the time. When I can select one, no matter which, nothing happens that I can see.

I'm using a MacBook Pro, and I restarted it this morning.

It says "Stop it" Wait" with the "S" and "W" underlined. So "S" or "W" with nothing, or alt or control or shift should stop the script. But none of them work. ctrl "W" closes the page#$%^&? [It should not since there is always alt F4]. How can I get rid of the message, which locks up FF on all open pages - THIS MUST BE FIXED, without using the mouse?

Whenever I try to upload a picture or anything it hangs the entire browser, can't access any website. Other browsers do not do the same like Google Chrome. I have to keep closing my browser down and restarting it and then I am able to browse as normal but whenever I try to upload something it just hangs.

Also, FireFox is so much slower these days I have to revert to Chrome, such as YouTube page loads slower, videos sometimes stutter when skipping. It doesn't do this in Chrome so it's not my connection.

Video seems okay, but it takes much longer to load a page, the cursor turns into a hand over a link with much delay. These things had been instant before the update. Restarting in default mode does nothing. I only have add-ons I really need, which came with FF download. Please help. Thanks for your time and brain work.
