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 ..

When running Firefox the time between between clicking on a link in one webpage and the new site displaying on the new tab has become several/many minutes. This wasn't always the case - it's happened for a month or so. The equivalent responses when operating in Chrome are much sharper, in fact as good as could be expected. Has anyone got an explanation/remedy? Paul Chant

Back to this problem again, launch Firefox and start typing and then look at screen and nothing has appeared, the cursor is not 'active' in the search window upon launch anymore. I recall this annoying problem then it went, but its back again. Others made mention but I cant find the thread.

Hello,

since the last update (v63.0, Windows) I have an issue that makes Firefox not usable. I hope you can help me.

Every time I open a new webpage, over a hyperlink or manually, Firefox takes 5-8 seconds until it starts to load the page. It seems like Firefox does nearly nothing at this point, there is no traffic going out, no CPU usage etc. There is also no status message in the bottom left corner like "Waiting for https://foobar.com...". After 5-8 seconds Firefox starts to load the page and then it goes very fast. This makes it impossible to use Firefox, because normal activities take a lot of time, because every click takes 5-8 seconds. On chrome on the same PC everything is OK.

I already did nearly everything to reset and clear my Firefox installation, I reinstalled and deleted the Mozilla folder in the AppData directory, the problem still persists. My colleague has the same issue since this update, so it's not only my PC.

I hope you can help me.
