I've been browsing these forms for days, and have tried every suggestion available in order to counter the constant (as in, "every time I click on a link or pull open a browser") hanging that I'm getting with FF.
This is a brand new, work-issued computer with precious little running on its system. Firefox, when loaded, hangs on every page. Every one. It's true that Flash-heavy pages and Twitter are worse than simple home pages and the like, but just getting through the relatively mild Mozilla forums came with freeze after freeze. As some have noted, the browser never crashes, it just freezes -- and my issues seem much worse than other posters' problems.
Because I'm not dealing with this problem with a bunch of tabs open, or after the browser has been open for a while. I've reset, re-installed, and restarted in Safe Mode. Nothing. I thought it was a Flash problem, initially, so I uninstalled that, re-installed older versions, and ended up reinstalling the newest versions. I've tried all the help tricks, like the hardware acceleration.
I can't stand Chrome, and don't want to use it, but I can't even browse on this browser, much less use it for work. This laptop was sent to me by my employers, a fairly massive internet behemoth, and I don't really want to send it back to them with a browser complaint, with them knowing that (to them, at least) a perfectly good browser alternative in Chrome is loaded in and ready to go.
Just writing this out has this hanging. Just adding the Troubleshooting Information has this hanging. I've been using Firefox for a decade now, and this is ridiculous. Please help.
