Firefox has been running slow upon opening and slow upon closing .( Hanging; with up to 500k in memory. To close now I must end task via the Task manager. it is so bad I must use "the other guys" browser that begins with "I" and ends with "R" in order to contact you.
The following, are solutions I have tried.
Safe mode disabled add-ons and plugins removed cookies, session, places, SQLite files among others as suggested deleted old profiles; created new profiles re-installed, fresh installs of various versions * after removing all traces of FF on the system run various virus, malware checks *including Microsoft, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro (full system online scan which took hours to complete). replaced the Time Warner Cable Modem Tried with and without add-ons directly connected from the Modem to the Computer bypassing my router. spent hours trouble shooting using various recommendations and suggestions via the internet and this forum to no avail. and have accomplished nothing accept make the situation worse.
its a miracle if I can get FF to start even in safe mode .
I am handicapping you I am sure since I am unable to provide more trouble shooting information. I don't know how to get it from FF into IE. for that I apologize. Currently using
windows 7 home sp1 64-bit I7 3770 16.0 gig RAM
FF Ver. 41.0.2 yes I know it is a tad older but the problems remain regardless of version.
I am lost, old, and tired after having spent countless hours on this and not being to familiar with Forums, I am begging for help and thanking you in advance for it.
