For the past several days, while all other websites work as fine as before on Firefox, Wikipedia works very badly: it responds very slowly and often gets stuck half-way before opening a page. I have tried several solutions but the problem recurs. On a different platform, Safari is connecting fine. Any suggestions?

Today I tried to launch Firefox from the Norton Support menu, It took more than two minutes to load. After that it takes two minutes on restart. When it finally runs all websites a lightening fast, except for Norton, which is very slow if at all. Three sessions with norton chat support have not improved anything and following the Firefox troubleshoote including reinstallation have not solved either.

When I bring up a spreadsheet online in google docs Firefox starts dimming the screen, others tabs run slow. The screen dimming will last, for 2-3 minutes, and then clear up, 2-3 minutes later it will dim again. The fewer tabs I have helps, but not the answer. IMO the problem has gotten worse over the few upgrades. I have an HP 2000 Laptop, CPU 1300.000 MHz, memory 7586 MiB.

Thx, Larry

Ever since I updated Firefox 2 or 3 days ago, getting onto Facebook is very slow and sluggish. Every time I try to play a game I get an error message that something went wrong, please refresh. I have refreshed Firefox and checked all my plugins for the latest updates and that did not help at all.

With versions of Firefox later than 34 (or possibly 35 - not sure) attempting to open a page link from an email in Thunderbird and occasionally other sources, results in Firefox 36 and 37 hanging for up to a minute before opening the new tab and page, so I am forced to use 34 to retain smooth operation.

I have not included the Troubleshooting Information as the problem does not relate to the Firefox version currently in use.

Edit: I asked the question originally in this thread which will show some of the things which were suggested and tried:

Firefox within the last month has started freezing every time on a Windows 7 laptop every time I try one of the above actions. I have tried "refresh Firefox", safe mode, uninstall/reinstall, nothing seems to help. Can't open prefs so I have not been able to turn off hardware acceleration. However, I was able to set up Firefox Sync which let me get my bookmarks to another PC and it looks like make setting changes on that PC affects this copy of FF so I <think> I've also tried turning off hardware acceleration. Nothing works. Especially frustrating that the options freeze. Firefox has worked for years on the affected laptop, is there anything I can do except give up and switch to another browser?

So, i tried several things in the troubleshooting articles here in the Support, but none solved my issues.

Basically, after Firefox automatically updated to 40.0.2, the browser hangs a lot on opening and closing tabs, as well loading websites. When not doing anything, the CPU/RAM usage is normal, but opening or closing tabs uses a lot of CPU (most of the time, 100% of the CPU is being used when browsing) and it hangs every time. Scrolling down pages also causes the browser to hang. I tried disabling several plugins and extensions and I even tried using safe mode, but even in safe mode it happens constantly. I'll post the specs of my computer (not big deal), but remember that these issues didn't happen before the update.

Core 2 Duo, 2.93 GHz 4 GB RAM Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit GeForce 8400GS

Please, did anyone find problems with this new update? What should I do? I've been using Firefox since 2007 and I love it, I'd hate to switch to another one.

FF will not load pages and I must shut down and restart for it to work if I leave it alone for a while.

If I am working online and leave for a few hours and then come back and go to open a new tab or even reload an existing tab or go to a new website using an already open tab, the only thing I get is the "spinning circle of death." I then must exit out of FF. Then when I go to reopen FF I get a window that says FF is still open, even though it is not and do I want to shut it down, so I click yes. Then I am able to reopen FF, but always get a message that says my user profile cannot be loaded properly, so I have click on that and reopen a second time. Then it finally opens and I am able to work fairly well until the same problem happens again.

I am really not sure what changed, but I never had this problem, I could leave FF open for days and come back and then open a new tab just fine and begin working again.

My PC runs fine and no issues, Recently upgraded to Widows 10 - no issues. Suddenly (and quite weirdly) I have this fault. I needed to activate new Reason software on Propellerheads.se site. The site loaded and I saw the image for about 2 secs and then the screen went black. The music I was paying continued (so I knew Windows was still running) but the PC was unresponsive - Alt.Tab, Start, Ctrl/Alt/Delete non of these worked. The Sleep button worked but when I woke Windows the screen remained black. Only recourse was a hard reset. So I tried to access Propellerheads.se with Microsoft Edge - it worked fine. So I uninstalled Firefox, made Edge default client and did the activation. Then reinstalled Firefox but still the same problem. I have reset default user agent, deleted all history/cookies etc, refreshed Firefox, run in safe mode, deactivated plugins. Still Propellerheads.se will not load successfully. I don't want to run Edge - my preference is Firefox - BUT!!!

When I'm typing in Firefox (writing an email for example) there is a delay of about ten seconds between the keystroke and the character appearing during which time the cursor seems to freeze. If I type several words in a row the cursor freezes like this and then the characters all appear at once but not at all in the correct order. They are too mixed up for it to be simply a mistake in my typing - the resulting text has all the letters that I typed but in a crazy order that looks like gibberish. This happens when Firefox is otherwise running normally (no other delays or freezes) and does not happen in any of my other browsers or applications. It significantly slows down my work and I prefer using Firefox but often am forced to switch to another browser to get my work done in a reasonable time frame

Since installing Windows 10, it takes a full second or two for a scrolling move (e.g.) to take effect. I'll turn the scroll wheel, and it will take 2-3 seconds for the page to actually move. Same thing waiting for a neutral cursor to turn into a "live" hand. In fact, I'm writing this via Chrome, since FF has becomes so slow and frustrating.

Tried refresh, reinstall firefox, no anti-virus program, actually I have no programs, no plugins, no extensions. Added firefox to the windows firewall allowed through list (which I never did with my vista machine) Brand new i5 quad core 3.6khz computer with windows 8.1 All drivers are up to date. It did take 2 weeks to get windows 8.1 finally installed without locking up and having to reinstall for the fifteenth time by disabling all of Microsoft's built in spyware. It's been semi stable for 2 days now. When I install kaspersky av. it adds another couple minutes to firefox launch.

I was really excited about my new suppose to be faster computer but my 10 year old Q6600 2.4khz with vista is way faster and easier to use.  I know I can't be the only one in the world to have this problem.  I've been all over the internet and I see all the problems people are having with windows 8.1. I've got invitation to upgrade to windows 10 but that just locks up the computer again.  Someone, anyone please HELP!

Firefox will not load. I installed Kaspersky Internet Security and everything was working fine until it wasn't. I then uninstalled Kaspersky, but Firefox would still not load.

Since I love Firefox I restored my computer to a previous state and that fixed everything, so then I installed a different Kaspersky product and everything was perfect. Now the problem is back again.

I don't know if the problem is on Kaspersky side or Firefox, but I would prefer not to restore again and I have no more troubleshooting ideas.

Firefox starts in Windows safe mode. When I double click on the Firefox icon the mouse indicates FF is loading, but then it doesn't start. Chrome starts fine. Contacted Kaspersky, but their first troubleshooting tip did not work. Under Event viewer I can see crash details for Firefox, but I can't interpret them and I don't know if they are related to FF not loading.

I'm okay with unintelligible Firefox and then reinstalling, but I do not want to lose my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Firefox 41.0, Win 10 Pro x64. Recently (possibly before V41) Firefox pages hang with very low cpu on some sites. Firefox itself is not hung, but for that tab, the clock indicator keeps ticking. I'm opening the problem while another tab is experiencing the problem. Some data from the web site is usually displayed (background?). Perhaps there is a redirect/redisplay of some sort (complete guess). Note: In this case, the web site is grayed out. Example: https://www.code42.com/store/ Problem occurred when I navigated to the above URL. Also occurred when I pasted the URL. Works in Chrome Version 45.0.2454.101 m. Works in Edge 20.10240.16384.0

Note: right now, as I try to upload an image, the upload doesn't complete. Clock ticks.

I'm going to try to submit this anyway.
