First off I am NOT "computer Savvy" to say the least,My Firefox has slowed down quite a bit and when I try the refresh and all it doesn't do anything on my end. I don't want to loose my folders or my favorite...Can anyone help me in "speeding up" my Firefox? Thanks in advance

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


Refreshing Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Refreshing Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs. Everything else, like user settings and add-ons, are removed. Note: Refresh saves your old profile to the desktop in a folder called Old Firefox.
