Firefox is slow to load even www.google.com which has nothing and logs me out of every website every time I close despite my doing everything I've read to fix it. The sqlite renaming and deletion, the allowance exceptions, all of it and nothing has fixed the problem.

pc specs: https://pastebin.com/vVYLjhDR firefox version: 75.0 (64-bit)

system and firefox are up to date. sketchfab.com became unusable. webgl window has low fps, as if the hardware acceleration was turned off. i've tried turning it off and on with restarting firefox after each action. doesn't help.

im not sure if it became an issue after last update, bc last time i've visited sketchfab was a while ago. it is working fine in chrome and opera

I have a new computer and it takes forever to load some websites. I have never had this problem before. I get a little ping pong on the browser tab. Facebook has sometimes taken 3 or more mintues to load but other random sites have too. I seems to be getting better after a couple of months. I have high speed internet from comcast and I checked the speed so that's not the problem. Other browsers don't seem to have the same problem but I don't have any history with them. WHAT IS THIS and what is that little dot that ping pongs?

I'm getting this on HSN.com, Wikipedia, Facebook. It flashes for a few seconds and then is gone faster than I can select an option, unless my cursor just happens to be in the upper right corner at the time. When I can select one, no matter which, nothing happens that I can see.

I'm using a MacBook Pro, and I restarted it this morning.

Whenever I try to upload a picture or anything it hangs the entire browser, can't access any website. Other browsers do not do the same like Google Chrome. I have to keep closing my browser down and restarting it and then I am able to browse as normal but whenever I try to upload something it just hangs.

Also, FireFox is so much slower these days I have to revert to Chrome, such as YouTube page loads slower, videos sometimes stutter when skipping. It doesn't do this in Chrome so it's not my connection.

Video seems okay, but it takes much longer to load a page, the cursor turns into a hand over a link with much delay. These things had been instant before the update. Restarting in default mode does nothing. I only have add-ons I really need, which came with FF download. Please help. Thanks for your time and brain work.

Good Morning..

The problem I am presenting is the following:

I have the newest version of firefox and since about 3 months I started to have problems slowing or almost blocking some pages that before opened without any problem. The message that a site is making firefox slow is displayed. But why? If I open these same pages for years and this has never happened .. I do not know how much firefox to have. I am a Firefox user of the first versions but honestly if I continue with these problems I will stop using them ..
