Since upgrading to Windows 10 last month, I am now having a problem with Firefox after resuming from sleep on my laptop. If Firefox was already open when the laptop goes into sleep mode, upon resume the Firefox UI (both web sites and the app itself) has display issues, where about half of the display is missing (e.g. text, graphics, menus, etc.). This happens only with Firefox, and not with other apps. I need to exit and restart Firefox to clear the problem. This doesn't always happen... it's probably 50/50. Doesn't seem to matter how many tabs are open in Firefox. Also, length of time in sleep mode doesn't seem to matter.

Laptop is a Toshiba L75D-A7283 with AMD Radeon HD 8330 display.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. T.O.

Whenever I visit http://tarmak007.blogspot.in the memory usage keeps increasing from the initial 200 odd MB to a couple of GBs and more. Had similar problem earlier too with the site but it got resolved later. I use ublock and tried disabling too. The other browsers such as IE do not seem to have the problem. I am using 43.0.4 version on 64 bit on Win10 64 bit OS.

Firefox freezes. I can not use it for anything. It never use to do that. It started doing that when I gave in, into installing windows 10 from window 7. However I reverted back to windows 7 because of it, but it did not get rid of the problem. I could hear my CPU processor fan speed up when it does work for a short while and its going to freeze up. I have use explore to access my email, when I can not get it into Firefox. I have to use task manager to get it off the screen. I have tried everything I know from uninstalling and reinstalling it. I have gone through internet options and deleted all pass history etc. Nothing works.

Hi,

My Firefix Quantum (59.0.2) is a nightmare - after even just a few minutes after start-up, slow, laggy for typing & switching between browsers, and grinds to a halt so I have to re-not start - which is frustrating and becoming unworkable.

I had this problem previously and managed to fix it with an "about:config" solution, but unfortunately I don't remember what.

That said, I since experienced a lot of problems with "Stop Code Kernel Security Check Failure" Blue Screen of Death, despite drivers updated, which ended up corrupting my old Firefox profile so it wouldn't start up.

I had to create a new profile to fix that, but so am since back to this slow and laggy issue again, despite trying many of the "about:config" solutions suggested here (including 'accessibility.force_disabled' change to value 1), nothing seems to work.

Btw, when I open Task manager, Firefox shows 7 'sub' icons despite having 2 windows open and many more tabs for each - 'Memory' for that is running at 670MB - 78% in total, 12% CPU.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

So for whatever reason while I'm using firefox for some randomly unknown reason it will freeze, HOWEVER if I am watching a video for instance and click the pause button while it is frozen the video will pause, I can change the sound and stuff but nothing changes visually. I can even switch to a different tab, click a video link maybe and can hear the video starting up and I can play pause it BUT the screen will still show me the old tab.

Problem: Intermittent - address bar will not receive input typing. Search bar will not receive input typing.

Attempted solutions: restarted Firefox. Restarted MacPro. Used save mode launch. Complete reload of Firefox.

Comments: Once working Firefox is lightening fast and works flawlessly. The machine is a 2013 MacPro laptop which has recently been upgraded with a 16Gig chip and a new motherboard. Operating system is El Capitan. I have used Firefox happily since getting the computer. Chrome and Safari do not exhibit same problem. There have been no error messages.

Since I've installed the latest versions of firefox on Windows Vista on my laptop, I get a lot of "Not Responding" or spinning wheels w/ no web page coming up--"Connecting" stays on for far too long. I suspect porting to new devices (especially mobil devices) broke it on laptops and/or older OS's. Sorry, but I won't buy a smartphone just to run firefox!

After opening Facebook on Firefox. It responds very slowly to paging down or up. Also when typing in a posting it takes a couple seconds for each letter to show up. You can actually get about 3 words typed before the first 2 letters show up. This does not happen on my Ipad or on this computer when using Edge as my browser. This problem is very recent and I have the most updated version of Firefox. Will there be a new update to fix this or should I just start using Edge as my browser?

Firefox has been crashing about every 20-30 minutes. It freezes and I eventually have to kill it, but no crash report messages pop up. I tried "about:crashes", but nothing was there. I am using Windows 8.1, freshly installed on a new PC with very minimal programs. I would really like to continue using your Browser. Thanks for the help.
