Scrolling has become unresponsive (at times a few seconds) and, when it finally scrolls, it does so with a jerk. This happens especially on websites as Rakuten and eBay when there are lots of small images and lots of open tabs. Page loading too is slow.
Please note that I have sufficient throughput as we regularly stream 2 XHD (1080p) movies simoultaneously flawlessly. I experience the problem on my Sony Vaio VPCSA (6GB RAM) running Win7. everything is updated.
Troubleshooting: Deselected hardware acceleration: no improvement. FF in safemode: very slight improvement (but maybe this was only my wishful perception). Disable Add-Ons: I could not test. The tabs "Services", "Appearance" and "Extensions" show this message: "You don't have any add-ons of this type installed" while I do have quite a few extensions installed. The "Plug-ins" tab regularly shows all the correct plug-ins that are installed.
Please advise how to restore smooth and fast scrolling.

In quite an extensive search I can only find two pieces regarding my concern about firefox syncing (for a bit of simplicity I will also assume in this inquiry I am only talking about bookmarks). Could the experts out there kindly put some meat on my bones of uncertainty?

I can understand a perfect synchronization can take place if all devices are kept turned on all the time. That would mean real time (virtually) simultaneous syncing. For example, a deletion (of a bookmark) on one device would delete on the others and an addition on one would add that same bookmark to the other devices. If I have got that wrong then please correct me there. If I have got that correct then what happens when one or all devices are switched off and then at staggered times in the future switched on when changes may have been made to the bookmarks in different ways at different times on those different devices. From this answer given below I get the sensation that there is some kind of aggregation going on but it certainly is not clear to me. Below reference from: How does FF sync across 3 open instances on 3 pc's?? “Only on the first sync of the first device will everything overwrite the account in the cloud. Everything else will merge and all three will continue to be merged. What does this mean, if you delete on one, it will delete/resolve on another when it syncs if you have bookmarks selected to sync. Senario answer: The second pc will merge with the 1st and the first will be a mix of both.” In practical terms it is very inconvenient to have old deleted bookmarks be re-added to a device when wanting to say goodbye to that bookmark forever. Is there a way to retain what would be a master set of bookmarks on one device and update later those only on what are deemed secondary devices. I realize you can switch off the synchronization and you can also keep a profile copy or a full copy file of bookmarks and start the whole thing again by deleting the sync account and starting afresh. But my problem is that I continually forget to turn off the syncing on a device when I close down and then bingo before I know where I am an old deleted bookmark reappears by automatic syncing from another device because that bookmark is retained in the cloud. Or am I missing something obvious?

computer was slow so "refreshed" as it told me to do. Lost my Spanish (Mexico) dictionary. Tried to add dictionary but though it says it has installed, it hasn't. Am using Firefox 44.0 I went into config etc. and changed the -- forget the name -- into MX instead of US and now all the interface is in Spanish but still no dictionary or spellcheck in Spanish. Have lost my French dictionary too but am in Mexico and need it now. Changed it back to en:US
