About a month ago thisstarted. It was the occasional slow loading of a page, which I just put down to a bad internet connection (University Wifi is shockingly terrible at the moment). Gradually over the past month it has got a lot worse, to the point where every page I load, freezes/lags for about 2 seconds once opened (Even at home, where I have a really good internet connection and have never had a problem with it).
YouTube is the worst, Every video I load freezes at 4 seconds for about 3/4 seconds. I did realise that it was adblocker causing YouTube to freeze, so I disabled it on the page, however this has just made it a lot worse. Before, youtube in general would load quite fast, but now I sit there for a good minute waiting for it to load properly and I don't think the ads are helping (hence why I got adblocker in the first place).
I can't figure out wat is casuing this; I have tried everything to fix it: Safe Mode, a complete fresh install, I have even gone throug a virus check on my laptop and nothing seems to be wrong. Nothing needs updating on my laptop, all the drivers are up to date, I have plenty of RAM left and troubleshooting comes back perfectly fine. I'm so lost! Chrome seems perfectly fine, no lagging or freezing. But, as I really hate Chrome (Sorry Google), I want to fix Firefox. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem? I currently have autoscrolling and smooth scrolling off, but this hasn't made a difference.
Thank you for any advice. Very much appreciated!
