I reinstalled Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate on a new SSD and migrated all data to a fresh install. I installed Firefox 27.0.1, and am having a new problem that I have never encountered.
I am typing this support question in the same browser, and the typing is fast, responsive, and overall normal.
However, when I go to Gmail, and compose a message, the autosave feature seems to go crazy, and saves every minute or so which I think is normal. The not normal thing is that when it does so in FF, the cursor freezes for about 5 seconds, and I don't see any text as I type. Eventually, all the letters in the sentence will catch up (about 25 seconds later), and invariably one or more is missing.
For troubleshooting, I have tried composing messages in IE 11, as well as the latest Opera Browser, and both work fine.
I have multiple YouTube accounts, and hence I prefer to use two different browsers for YouTube, so that I am not automatically logged in and out every time I want to send an email, etc.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and/or know a solution? Again, it is consistent only with Gmail in Firefox. Gmail works fine in every other browser (I won't use Chrome), and every other function (such as typing this email post) works fine in FireFox.
