This extension has attached itself to Mozzila/Firefox moz-extension://b8b74ec4-b566-444c-a67b-cc919887caaf/newtab/index.html, and it's making them act negatively. Slowing down just about everything, from slowing down my bootup to redirecting my web pages and giving me logging in issues. How can I correct this issue.

moz-extension:// links are coming from an installed extension and in this case it looks like an extension for the new tab page.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
