Hello, Not sure what is wrong with firefox lately but since 60 release it is not the old good fox. Page loading is stalling, when I go to check my speed with firefox I;m getting high latency: Download speed 94.26 Mbps Upload speed 5.40 Mbps Ping 179 ms

Results from chrome:

Download speed 97.55 Mbps Upload speed 5.48 Mbps Ping 10 ms

I repeated this a few times and every time same results.

Not sure why firefox is stalling on page loading, and why is it giving high ping on speedtest servers. I can not measure speeed on speedtest.net. it is giving all kinds of errors even in safe mode, and when I manage to load it it gives very high ping, but everything is working fine in chrome and edge. I can not use another browser because I;m using firefox for years, switched after mozzila (R.I.P.) SO can you please fix this? I;m open to any suggestions.

Firefox huge memory consumption - who's lying ?

I try to keep always open some tabs in Firefox,, probably already too many (it's not unusual to have 25-30 tabs opened, each having it's internet page). I'm using Firefox up-to-date on Windows 10 Home already at version 20H2.

So, quite quickly Task Manager comes to report that Firefox takes 1400-1600 of RAM (out of the laptop's total of 6 GB). At the same time, Firefox's internal Task manager pretends that memory taken by all tabs does not sum up more than cca 650 MB !!! This is concur with about:memory tab if I try that too.

Here's a capture taken with Snip&Sketch having both Firefox's tab with it's internal task manager, + Windows's Task manager over it (attached).


I feel like I'm cheated here, but ... who is most closer lay blame on ? Who is more likely to lie in this case ?0 Firefox or Task Manager ?

I tend to believe it's Firefox, but I'm willing to have other opinions. Are there extra memory taken by Firefox that is not reported in the about:memory tab, or in it's internal task manager ? (I'm onto this, I believe that there is something that is not reported, but so far have not a shred of evidence on this).

This is exactly why on my computer at work (on an OpenSUSE install) I gave up on Firefox and turned to Chrome, because on this one I can trust the internal task manager, and it does not crush my Linux box like Firefox eventually have done with it's crazy memory consumption and/or CPU huge load from time to time. I am still using Firefox on the home Windows 10 laptop because I share it with my wife, and decided she is to use Chrome, and myself Firefox:-)

Firstly, I want to say right away that the problem arose with the release of the 57th version, that is, Quantum. Until the 57th version everything was fine. And also I want to say that this problem does not exist in other browsers. The problem manifests itself in this case: If you open the site of the dns-shop.ru or technopoint.ru store and, without waiting for the page to fully load, click on any item on the page, for example, on the left, select the directory partition, then the whole browser hangs. In this case, the browser stops responding to any pressing in the interface and generally does not react to anything, except for the completion of the process in the task manager. That is, I open the task manager and find there a process of firefox that uses almost all the resources of the CPU. After that, I end the process and firefox starts to work and writes that the "tab has dropped" (image # 3) I noticed the same problem on other sites, in particular youtube, vk, fb. Also, with fast transitions between site pages or streaming video, the browser may hang and the CPU load immediately 90-100%. Tried it on a completely clean firefox, on a freshly installed one, it ran without add-ons. All the same. I have to use google chrome until it's fixed ...

For the past few months or so, Firefox has become completely unusable for me. About every five minutes or so, the browser freezes, and I have to kill the process in order to re-launch it. I've tried clean uninstall/reinstall, removing all add-ons, etc. Nothing seems to work. I've installed it on 4 of my computers, and it freezes on all of them (Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 10).

Has anybody had any luck fixing the instability, or am I just stuck with Chrome?

Reading the Boston Globe ePaper causes the tab to temporarily freeze when one navigates (moves/zooms). This is easy to reproduce on a Surface Pro using touch and does not occur in IE and Chrome. This occurs also in the Nightly build fix indicated by https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1446904. This also occurs in safe mode.

ANytime I open firefox and go online to fill any form it hangs repeatedly. I have re installed, updated, reset, turned off hardware acceleration and many other so called fixes all to no avail. I m running a few month old windows 7 pc. As far as I can tell everything is up to date. How I manage to work around the problem is to open task manager by pressing alt,ctrl,del and then click cancel. In many cases functionality returns in many other cases it doesnt and I repeat this process until it does. Often when it doesnt fix the issue the screen is all black when I call up the task manager. I may call the task manager 10-15 times before it stops hanging. Does anyone have a clue what is happening or how I can find out. It has hung 6 times - 7 times on this form so far.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

Immediatly after upgrading FF to Quantum every click has a 3 to 10 seconds delay until a site finally starts loading. Since I am "working" in the web, that way FF is completly useless. Is there anyone else out there having the same problem? Or someone who had and got it solved?

As Quantum is advertising performance and visual improvements for Windows users, like: "Moved the build infrastructure of Firefox on Windows to the Clang toolchain, bringing important performance gains", I can smell the smoke, where my performance problems could result from..

Unbelievable, but I had to install Chrome in the meantime to be able to work on.

Any help appreciated, Marv.

Recently, for no apparent reason, Firefox has started crashing whenever I download anything. Whether it be me hitting save when saving an image, or downloading an executable from somewhere, it's always the same. Firefox immediately hangs and stops responding, forcing me to exit out via the task manager. No error report is created in about:crashes either. I have a similar issue in Chrome, where if I download anything it stops downloading with 0 seconds remaining and just sits there, however Chrome doesn't crash during. This issue is really debilitating to my workflow, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox using an executable I had to download and copy from another computer. If someone could help me with this issue, you'd be a godsend. Thank you for your time.

Firefox 33.0 lags in text typing/ selecting/ deleting & switching tabs

After an automatic update from FF 32.0.3 to FF 33.0 on 17 Oct 2014, there had been a severe browser lag. Each user action or input results in a lag lasting 1–5 secs each, making the browser very difficult & unpleasant to use.

  • Typing Text: 1–2 secs before each letter appears
  • Highlighting Text (self-typed & web-rendered text): 2–3 secs before desired text is highlighted, & only partially (eg. For "impossible", can only highlight "imposs" or "ssible")
  • Deleting Text: 1–2 secs before each letter gets deleted
  • Switching Between Tabs: 2–5 secs for switch
  • Webpage Scrolling: 1–2 secs for each turn (for mouse wheel) or down-swipe (for touchpad)

All of the above issues occur everytime despite system restart, having only 1–2 tabs open, & even when FF is the only application running. I have not encountered the aforementioned problems in FF 32.0.3 & earlier FF versions, or in other browsers.

Other than FF being automatically updated to FF 33.0 on 17 Oct 2014, there was no other change (ie. no application install/ uninstall, no Windows update) that day or the preceding few days.

The lag disappears if FF 33.0 is run in safe mode with all add-ons disabled. But testing with add-ons disabled one by one does not isolate which add-on (if any) might be involved.

  • Laptop: Lenovo IdeaPad Y460
  • OS: Windows 7 SP 1
  • Display Adapters: ATI Mobility Radeon HD5650 (driver: 8.702.5.0 latest version), Intel HD Graphics (driver: 8.702.5.0 latest version)
  • Firefox User Experience: FF 33.0 (very bad lag), FF 32.0.3 & earlier (all function ok)
  • Browser Add-ons & Plugins: All latest versions

What I eventually did (a few days before reporting here after registering a user account): Since I was unable to resolve the problem, I performed a successful system restore, but the rolled-back browser (FF 32.0.3) was unable to launch (error code: "can't load XPCOM"). Subsequently, I resorted to installing a fresh copy of FF 32.0.3.


Since 17/18 Oct 2014, I have encountered a couple of reports about similar lag issues in FF 33.0 (& possibly since FF 32.0.* for some users). The collective symptoms & feedback suggest that it is probably not add-ons causing the issue, but some newly-created incompatibility or conflict with certain (or combinations of) display/ graphics adapter(s). So far, the reported affected adapters that I have come across include the ATI Mobility Radeon HD5000 series, Intel HD Graphics, & NVIDIA GeForce.

The temporary workaround appears to be disabling the hardware acceleration option. But since this is not a long-term solution, I am holding off updating to FF 33.0 (again) or to the just-released FF 33.0.1, until this issue is officially recognized & resolved.

Note:- Some users with text/ tab lagging problems also reported slowness wrt video &/or flash pages, which I can't verify because I had not tested FF 33.0 on video/ flash pages before reinstalling FF 32.0.3. (The text, tab & scrolling lags are enough to keep me away from browsing anything but the most basic webpages.)

Some Feedback References (for affected users & FF developers):

Possibly related to the same bug:-

Firefox is very slow to bring up pages (30 seconds minimum) while IE and Chrome are normal.

When I close FF, the firefox.exe process doesnt' close for 3 to 5 minutes ad then I get a "Firefox crashed" message.

I'm seeing this on a ton of machines (7 and Vista).

I had tried everything. I have deactivated all FOUR of my plugins and started up Firefox again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh copy. I installed Firefox on an SSD even and it is still painfully slow. I have the same plugins and such on Chrome and that one opens up immediately. So I have been using Chrome a lot more lately because Firefox is opening slowly these days. Takes 15-20 seconds for Firefox to open every single time. I have deactivated each plugin one by one to see if they were causing the issue and sure enough, all of them were clean. Firefox still opens slowly.

On an unrelated note, I have been using Chrome a lot more lately also because some things on a webpage don't work on Firefox. I can't explain it. Like on the hickory farms website, I click on the Add To Cart button and it looks like it is being pressed, but nothing is added to the cart. This type of thing happens across the internet on many different sites. When I go to Chrome, everything works as it ought to. I have my settings set to Standard in Privacy and Security. I don't know where else I have to check and change things to get those buttons and other links and such to work.

Running Firefox 61 (on Windows 10 Pro) on a PC (Intel i7, 16 GB memory, plenty of disk space). When trying to add comments to any story on Fox News (how ironic), the browser quickly slows and then shortly will not respond at all. This begins by the display of my recently typed text (or cursor repositioning via mouse clicks) becoming very slow to show on the screen and then within 5 to 7 minutes, the typed characters do not show at all and the browser becomes fully inoperable. This has been happening for several releases of Firefox, up to, and including 61, and at least two previous updates to Windows. Please help.

I am facing a strange issue where the Browser doesn't load the website for a minute and shows server error. However, this behavior is not specific to any website and the server error shows randomly. Sometimes the browser loads the website normally while other times it shows server error. Please check this screencast: https://jmp.sh/jEu4D9k to understand better. So, I initially tried to open calendly.com and it didn't load despite my multiple reload attempts. However, when I tried to reload it after a minute then it came to life.

I have been facing this issue for many months and I tried almost every solution I found on Mozilla community pages like Resetting Mozilla, Setting No Proxy, Turning Off IPv6, DNS Prefetching Changes, Turning On/Off hardware acceleration, Uninstalled Mozilla and Installed a fresh copy, Changed to Mozilla Developer Edition, etc. but no luck. Please note that the other browsers are working fine and don't have any issues.
