Slow page loading, and searching

more options

I switched to Firefox from yandex browser recently on both desktop and android recently and have been really enjoying it, but pages on android 11 (galaxy a52) load very slow for some reason. It is much slower than yandex, and i find it weird, because it's the other way around on desktop, and i've heard good things about firefox's speed as well. Maybe the issue isn't in the browser. I run latest version of it, and tried google search and duck duck go. It was alright on google, still slower, but bearable. On ddg it's just barely working. The internet speed is fine, and i don't use any vpn or proxy. Speed remains slow both using wifi and cellular.

Do you have an example of a page that is loading slowly?

Do you have any add-ons installed in Firefox for Android?

What level of enhanced tracking protection do you have set?

Hi, thanks for taking the time to help out

Any paige, really. Search results are given about 2-3 times slower on ddg compared to the yandex (basically chromium, if you're not familiar), and a tiny bit slower using google, feels like 5-10%. Pages are loading 10-20% slower, and it can be anything, wikipedia, Instagram, reddit, or redirects and what not. I've had 20 tabs on Firefox and nearly 400 on my old browser when I've been doing the comparison.

I do, but turning them off didn't help. It's bitwarden, decentraleyes, dark reader and ublock origin.
