I have tried nearly everything I have seen suggested so far, but nothing seems to work. Firefox started hanging and lagging randomly a few days ago. When scrolling, hovering over buttons, clicking and typing, there tends to be a half-second or 1 second delay. Youtube videos and other video websites are basically unwatchable because they lag so much.

So far I have tried:

- starting firefox in safemode - resetting firefox - using hardware accelleration and not using hardware acceleration to see if there was any changes. - disabling all plugins and extensions and disabling each one-by-one to see if any took up a lot of memory usage. (Firefox memory usage was sometimes over 400 Mb) - downloading a freeware program called "Firemin" which apparently stops memory leaks when used to launch firefox. (Memory usage went from 350-400 Mb to 4-8 Mb !) This helped slightly when watching youtube videos but not with any other hanging and lagging problems.

I'm currently using Firefox 22.0.

Please if you have any suggestions respond because I do not want to have to resort to using Chrome. I am too used to using firefox and don't want to lose my bookmarks.

When is Firefox going to fix this damn problem? everyday about 2 or 3 times I get this on my windows 8! Firefox only solution seems to be to disable the warning and wait 45 seconds for it to be acknowledged. that isn't a solution! Fix the DAMN PROBLEM ALREADY, from what I see in the forums, it's been going on for about a year without any solution!

Firefox works okay but I notice it slow down an lag. When I go on Pandora an play music it'll work fine but once I start opening other tabs it will start lagging the music. This doesn't happen on Internet Explorer. If I play a video YouTube in HD I sometimes have to let it load all the way up or it'll start lagging. I have none of these issues on Internet Explorer. What can I do to fix this?

I recently upgraded from WIndows XP to Windows 8. None of the installed browers would work with the FTP site www.wetransfer.com. I installed Firefox and it solved the problem. FF worked fine for a couple months. Now it is behaving exactly like the other browsers installed on my machine. I do not know if there was a windows update or FF update that changed some kind of setting. I uninstalled and reinstalled FF to no relief. I did try to restore my computer to an earlier date but ...1. the dates available don't go back far enough and 2. for some reason the restore fails. Don't know what to try next. Wetransfer only suggests try a different browser ... ie, aol, yahoo, google chrome do not act any differently on this machine. Don't know what to do next.

I haven't noticed any pattern to what causes it; just that sometimes, Firefox stops responding to key presses of any kind. I know some websites intercept keys that would otherwise control the browser (which is annoying), but when this happens it affects all sites. I've tried pressing all the modifier keys to see if one is being registered as held down; it doesn't help. Quitting Firefox and starting it again seems to fix it when it happens. I've been using Firefox for a while, and only encountered the problem once I installed it on my new Windows 8 PC.

So I have recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8, and I installed Firefox. For the most part it works fine but I have noticed, for some reason, some webpages do not load properly. It looks as if only the HTML of the site has loaded.

Now I can easily fix this by clearing the cache, but only for the same problem to occur a few hours later and this is really annoying me. The problem still happens in safe mode, and other browsers seem to work fine. I have also tried reinstalling but not a full reset.

Here is a link to what Facebook looks like when this happens: http://oi40.tinypic.com/2gwcbxk.jpg

Please could you help me solve this?

I was able to access this website prior to 2 weeks ago. I can access this website on other computers without issues, and I can also access all other websites on this computer.

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
