How to fix slow lagging problems with Firefox?

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!

Firefox 29.0.1 does not always close properly upon exit. It will occasionally hang (4 or 5 times a day) and the process stays in memory. I have to go to the Windows Task Manager in order to kill the process and restart Firefox. Also, page load times seem to have noticeably increased from the previous version.

I've done -both- selecting & blocking the domain name of Google for prefs, etc from it's website AND using the Firefox security options page and typing in Google's domain name then selecting it to remove its cookies. But every time I check the "Show Cookies" tab, google is STILL there in the cookie list even after I've done all this stuff. What must I do, what secret domain name must I type to ensure Google doesn't track me?

I'm already using DuckDuckGo as my sole search engine so there is NO reason why google should be able to attach cookies to me as I am NOT USING GOOGLE. Please help.

General Complaint


SO VERY frustrating to have to deal with changes that are completely unnecessary and unwanted!! This looks like Chrome now. If I wanted to use Chrome, I'd use Chrome!! Why does Firefox feel it is necessary to fix a working watch??

Can't Get Rid of Icon Text


Although the Toolbar Customize option is set to Icons Only (default), the text will not go away and leave me with only icons.

I had a custom toolbar (with my own selection of buttons) and it survived the upgrade to FF29, but after I installed Classic Theme Restorer, I lost it again (which had been a problem with FF28 as well, where I'd lose it suddenly on startup and had to rebuild it).

I rebuilt the toolbar after upgrading to 29 and it showed icons only at first. But I repositioned the new toolbar among the another toolbars and that's when the icon text insisted on appearing with the icons. I can't get rid of the text now.

Icon Size Too Small


The new icons are microscopic! Even when I have set the size to the largest I can find, in all settings I can find, they're at least half the size they used to be.

I installed the Classic Theme Restorer, but setting the nav icons to large only applies to the top row of icons (where the address bar is), not to added-on toolbars or manually added toolbars. Text zoom applies only to the web page being viewed, not to Firefox itself. (Also, the large nav buttons are barely visible and seriously ugly; they're not simply a larger version of the default icons.)

How can I bring back the usual size of icons from the previous version??


Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi,

I have seeing some confusing behaviour for the last couple of weeks now, and hope that one of you technically minded people may be able to help.

Currently on a Win 7 Professional machine, running fully updated (auto updates enabled). I am using Firefox 29.0.1. I use Outlook.com, and when opening the tab on my browser, Outlook.com opens just fine at the inbox, with the reading pane at the bottom as I like. Conversation threads are turned off. The first e-mail I see highlighted and also in the reading pane is the most recent one. No problems so far, but after a few seconds the highlighted and displayed e-mail changes to one I received about 2 weeks ago.

No problem I thought, sign out of Outlook, clear the internet cache (btw, mine is set to clear cache each time I exit anyway), close down Firefox and then reopen it, and sign back into Outlook. I did this, and problem e-mail is still the one that ends up being the focus both in in-box and reading pane. Next option was to switch off the reading pane, carry out the actions listed above, and then turn the reading pane back on. Unfortunately, the rogue e-mail still insisted on being the most important one.

I then moved the offending e-mail into another folder, so well away from the in-box, and carried out the sign out, clear cache, close down, restart, sign in procedure. In-box now stayed with the most recent e-mail highlighted, but the reading pane switch again and displayed the e-mail that wasn't even in the in-box any more.

Finally, I deleted the e-mail completely, signed out, cleared cache etc. Now the reading pane is blank, no matter what I do.

Anyone got any ideas? Incidentally, I have other e-mails from this sender, and this only happens with this one particular one.

Thanks for reading, hope it make sense.

I have downloaded a second flash player and it is still the same. Firefox has been crashing daily for a few weeks. I noticed that your adblocker plus was updated 6/4. Since then I have almost no use of firefox, because the Adobe flash player 13.0.r0 and Shockwave crash notices are constantly popping up. Could that update have something to do with why the flash players are not working? Below are an example of the crash details. Thanks for the help. I prefer your browser, but this has made it non-functioning.

In trying to fix it, a window came up that asked would I like to change it back to a previous working image, which was Windows XP. Although this computer is Windows 7, I clicked the box yes, and said I wanted it to work like Windows XP. I see in your Operating System below, that it reads Windows Xp, but this computer is actually Windows 7. I can't find that menu to change unclick and change it back, so that it is working as Windows 7.

Hi,

I have some local files (HTM pages) that I access through the FireFox browser. These pages have a collection of links. Some of these are within [iFrame] /iFrame markups. The ones that link to URL images work fine. The problem I have is any iFrame I have that link to a text (URL) looks like it is not working. The box 'appears' blank (the same background color as the page).

However, when I click and highlight inside the iFrame, the text indeed is there. How do I get the text to appear in these iFrame boxes? (I tried it with [Embed], same problem.)
