freezing pages and spellcheck

Posted

First and biggest problem: When I scroll through a page it freezes up somewhere and whatever is in view gets drawn out. I have unistalled, deleted everything connected to Firefox and reinstalled it. Thought for a few minutes, YES it worked and then. Nope. Back on square one. And this ONLY happens in Firefox. No other program or browser.

Also... now I have lost my English grammar/spellcheck and have no idea how to get it back. Really annoying when every single word is redmarked.

OK; uploading screen shot of problem isn't working either. Fun Fun Fun. It's only 26kb. No picture then.

I have used Firefox for years as it has been one of the best browsers for some of the sites I use. Today? NOT AT ALL. I give up.

Does this happen on many sites, some sites, a few sites? Start '''[https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode Firefox in Safe Mode]''' {web Link} by holding down the '''<Shift><br> ''(Mac=Options)'' ''' key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click '''Start In Safe Mode''' (not Refresh). Is the problem still there? ------------------- '''https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently''' '''https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-slow-how-make-it-faster''' '''https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-many-cpu-resources-how-fix''' '''https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding''' '''https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Firefox+is+already+running+but+is+not+responding'''
