Takes a very loooong time to load then after slowly loading a few pages including on this site it freezes. Everything. This is the second day of restart after restart with Firefox. OS is OpenMandriva. Had no problems before upgrade to 37.0

Does this happen with many web pages, some, all?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Type about:preferences#advanced<Enter> in the address bar.

Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?
