Opening multiple tabs freezes ff and the tabs stop updating after a while

If I middle click on a folder of bookmarks, to open them all in new tabs, they will open and start loading to the point where all of them have titles (names of the webpages loading) and some have some content.

Then, firefox will completely stop loading content and just sit there. Closing the tabs and opening new websites or tabs doesnt work. The only fix is to restart firefox.

I have tried doing this is Chrome and it works fine.

This used to work in Firefox, but with a recent "update" stopped working"

I have updated my addons.

I do use NoScript but even disabling that didn't help.

I tried doing the same with a different bookmarks folder and got teh same issue.

i think i figured out a solution to this problem guyz. on address bar write "about:config" (without quotes) and on upper left corner in filter search for "network.http.max-connections" and change value from 256 to 30. thats it close this window and browse again :-)

Been having the exact same problem, open as little as 2 tabs quickly at the same time, and they lose connectivity and stop loading. Chrome/Opera/Safari all work fine, just firefox I've been having troubles with. What is something we could try to fix this?? At this stage I'm going to have to convert browsers!

Hi,

Thanks akapal, I tried that and it seems to handle multiple tabs without locking up firefox's connection.

Your browser may also freeze up if it's cache is full. Trying clearing out your cache or increasing the amount of cache Firefox is able to use.
