There are a few things you can do to try to speed things up! It looks like you have an older computer (looking at your graphics card, seems to be a computer that's at least a few years old), so the things we can do are limited, but let's give them a try!
- First off, try a Firefox Refresh. Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings. This will fix a lot of weird issues while saving all your important data.
- After that, try updating your graphics driver. http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+7+-+64. The one you are using is from 2006(!) and so your hardware isn't being used as well as it should be. This will probably give you a big speed boost.
- Make sure that Windows is fully up to date. Make sure you check out the optional and recommended updates as well, there are sometimes updates in there that can improve performance. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/windows-update
- Scan for malware. Malware can cause lots of computer slowdowns. Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware
- Try Microsoft's steps for improving performance. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/optimize-windows-better-performance#optimize-windows-better-performance=windows-7
- Update your plugins to make sure you are using the latest, https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
- Finally, your anti-virus could be slowing down your computer. I'd suggest removing whatever anti-virus you currently use and use the free one that Microsoft provides, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download. Bonus, this may save you money if you are currently paying for anti-virus ;)
I hope this helps! It's possible your computer hardware is just too old to run modern software, but this will at least help it run smoother. Keep in mind also that Microsoft will be making Windows 10 available for free to all Windows 7 users this fall, so keep your eyes out for that, which will most likely bring some performance improvements of it's own.
