I've repeatedly heard that FF is fast, but my experience is the opposite. I've tried fresh FF installations, fresh system installations, cleaning the registry, desktop, browser cache, etc. Nothing helps. Occasionally FF runs at a speed I find acceptable, but usually I wait several seconds for each page to load, and up to 25 seconds for FF to start.

If FF is fast for other users, can someone please suggest why it might not be fast for me?

FF 3.6.4, Win XP Home SP3, 1Gb RAM, 2.7 GHz CPU, 16 GHz + cable, virtually no installed software except Outlook 2003, word processing and outlining apps, and misc., e.g., Quicken.

I try to limit the number of open tabs to three or four, and the number of open apps to two or three. At the moment the only FF I have installed is Adblock Plus. Opera is fast. SlimBrowser is fast. I.e., given all the above, I cannot think of a logical reason FF should not be fast -- or at least reasonably so. Any ideas, please?

== If I recall correctly, FF 2.x was acceptably fast. Everything 3.x seems to run slower with each version.

Since the update the 3.6.4, and updating all plug-ins, I have constant and seemingly random crashes of Firefox with non-descript DEP error as the reason. Crashes have occurred doing a Google.ca search, watching a video of Youtube, using my university's student services website, and many browsing many others. The crashes occur approximately 15 times an hour, not evenly spaced. Crashes twice trying to submit this report.

Firefox crashes on any page with flash. I have the most recent version of Firefox on OSX Snow Leopard. I have made sure that I have all the most recent plugins and extensions and I am not running any custom theme. I have completely un-installed and re-installed Firefox and flash to no avail. I think the problem is in some user preference, but I cannot seem to find it. If I log out and use a different user on my machine, Firefox does not have the flash crash problem.

After a few days of use where Firefox 3.6.4 is never closed it seems to bog down and scrolling becomes slow and choppy. If I quit Firefox and not save tabs and data it is fine on the next start. But I usually have around three to four tabs that I need to remain open. Is there something I can do to fix or prevent this without closing tabs?

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

FF 3.6.3 gave me absolutely no problems, and with considerably more extensions installed. After letting 3.6.4 automatically update, the browser hangs every time I load the Tools-->Options menu. Sometimes I have to click through a few of the choices to get a hang, but it's bound to happen after only a few clicks through the browser's options.

I tried uninstalling the browser and all user customizations, then re-installing 3.6.4 from scratch, but with the same results. Using the -safemode options with everything checked didn't get me any farther. Ideas?

When someone asks me what they should do when Firefox after they have updated to 3.6.4, starts to hang between 20 seconds and several minutes, when they visit Flash sites, what would be the right answer? I have got some questions like these within the last day since 3.6.4 came out. Setting dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll=false is reported to work, but are there better workarounds?

Previous versions of Firefox didn't enforce a default download location, just returned to the last used directory. From there I could navigate up or down as needed, or stay where I was if that suited me. That made organizing downloads as I went very simple and convenient. Now, even with "Always ask me where to save files" each download defaults to My documents\Downloads unless I select another location using "Save files to [box]." That means I either have to do some tedious clicking around to locate the appropriate destination, or open MS Windows Explorer after the download is completed and move the new file to where I want it. THIS IS NOT AN IMPROVEMENT! You might consider restoring the older behavior under an option button such as "Remember my last download location."

Hello, I'm a Firefox Contributor! If you are experiencing the issue stated on the title, we need your help!

We haven't yet discovered the true cause of this, so please DON'T ASK FOR HELP HERE!

However, we can use your help to find what is causing this and IMPROVE Firefox, if you let us give you a task that will provide us with valuable information! Before you reply to this, we need to confirm the details of this issue, DO NOT reply here if your issue doesn't match the following:

  • Happens every time that Firefox is opened.
  • Happens in Windows.

Also, one of the following has to happen:

  • Firefox window is not responding just after opening Firefox and requires it to be killed on Task Manager OR ,
  • Firefox window never shows up but the process "firefox.exe" is listed on Task Manager.

If you have this exact issue, please reply with:

  • your operating system architecture (64-bit or 32-bit?)
  • a debugging session
  • your e-mail

so we can follow up with you to ask you for more information. I repeat, we DON'T HAVE a solution for this, so please don't tell us you have the problem without giving us the data we ask, and don't make other unrelated questions.

You might ask, how do you give us a debugging session? Instructions:

  • You need to install the following software, "Debugging Tools for Windows". Download it from http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/DevTools/Debugging/default.mspx (if you own a 64-bit version of Windows, follow the link on that page to the 64-bit version). Then install it, the standard settings in the installation process are fine
  • To begin debugging, run WinDbg from the Start menu. (Start->All Programs->Debugging Tools for Windows->WinDbg) Next, open the "File" menu and choose "Open Executable...". In the file chooser window that appears, open the firefox.exe executable in your Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox).
  • You should now see a "Command" text window with debug output at the top and an input box at the bottom. You will have to enter commands in that input box, COPY THEM as they are written, ONE BY ONE, pressing enter after each one of them (this is IMPORTANT):


.sympath SRV*c:\symbols*http://symbols.mozilla.org/firefox
.symfix+ c:\symbols
.reload /f

  • Now wait a second, this might take a while... Copy the following commands after...


.logopen /t c:\firefox-debug.log
.childdbg 1
.tlist
sxn gp
|* lm

  • Now run Firefox by opening the Debug menu and clicking Go. Right after, Firefox should start running and the problem should happen again. As soon as you verify the problem is occurring, open the Debug menu and click Break. Then, copy these commands:


|* ~* kp
|* !analyze -v -hang
|* lm

  • After these steps are completed, find the file c:\firefox-debug-(Today's Date).txt on your hard drive. Now, you have the data in that file, open it and copy the contents into a new pastebin URL at http://pastebin.mozilla.org/
  • After creating the pastebin, be sure to save the CUSTOM url that links to your report.

Finally send us the data by replying here and indicating the URL of the pastebin, with the rest of the information we are asking above.

Running Windows XP SP 3.

Updated to Firefox 3.6.4 earlier this afternoon, and after doing so, the browser comes to a random halt either:

a) roughly every 15 minutes, or b) when there are more than 4 tabs open; regardless of the site. I even replicated it with 4 tabs of Mozilla forums.

Things will just fail to load, endlessly cycle, and then if I don't clear cache/settings and restart, it will freeze. I've reinstalled it twice, updated (I think) all add-ons and swept for any kind of 'ware, but nothing is fixing it.

When I visit some websites, I get a "missing plug-in needed" warning for certain media content. When I click through, it demands that QuickTime be installed. I have the very latest version of QT and the FF QT plug-in already. This has been an issue for a couple of years, through earlier FF versions and QT versions. I'm wondering if this a page html coding issue, and has nothing to do with FF or QT?
