What website is slowing my browser down?

Every morning a website slows my browser down. Can take 10-15 minutes to get up to speed, things 'not responding' all over. I have Windows 10, Eset NOD32 anti virus, Ad blocker plus, Facebonk Container, all that - but I'm just a grunt not a techy..

How do I find out which website it is, so I can nuke their server?

Hi, You can try to open and check on the Firefox Task Manager to check the performance. It can show you which tabs or extensions are using the most memory.

Open Firefox > Click menu button > Click More > Click Task Manager. Further information click the link below. link text

Otherwise, you can check about the memory page link text

Great, I now have a new way of spotting Tasks that are slowing me down.  :- My Facebook page is massive followed by AdBlock plus. I can't change them.. However, end of the day - if Firefox tells me 'a website' is slowing my browser down, I wish it would say which one! Otherwise it's a totally useless message. So it's feedback really.

If you use Adblock Plus then you can consider uBlock Origin as a replacement to see if that works better (lower memory footprint).
