For the past few days, Firefox has been extremely slow to load pages at startup. The browser itself launches pretty much instantly, but it's taking over six minutes after that just to look up domains. At some point it gets past whatever hiccup is holding things up and browsing works for the rest of the session -- noticeably slower than usual, but usable.

It happens with add-ons disabled, after multiple refreshes, and even after a full reinstall (with new profile). I've played with all the common suspects -- disabling accessibility options, hardware acceleration, IPv6, etc. I closed my pinned tabs and disabled auto-restoring the previous session. I even disabled Avast and MalwareBytes. Nothing has helped so far (which is seriously disappointing, considering the 6-minute restart between each change!)

The odd thing is that there are a few seconds, immediately after startup, where things seem to work normally. If I'm quick, I can sometimes get most of one webpage to load before the problem begins.

I've been a Firefox power user since version 0.6.2 and never encountered anything like this. I'm very comfortable with changing settings, configuration files, etc., and am willing to try just about anything to get things cranking again. But right now I'm simply out of other ideas to try.

Using 61.0.2, 64-bit version on fully-patched Windows 10 on a very fast fiber connection. <edit> I also tried the 32-bit version; no joy. </edit>

The main use of the PC in my living room is as a media center. My GUI (Plex) runs in the browser and plays videos with VLC via a custom addon. Currently it is also used for browsing from time to time and I need to keep that part of it secure. As Mozilla is about to break all my addons as well as force me onto 64 bit, I've no choice but to stop updating Firefox on that PC.

I found a old post (3 years old) about running two different versions of Firefox at the same time. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/974208

Is it still possible to do this? Does the same methods still work?

I want to freeze my current 32 bit Firefox at v54.0.1 and use it only for local content. (I've already disabled updates on it)

Then I want to then install a second 64 bit Firefox v55, use it for internet, and allow it to update normally.

If this isn't possible I'll just have to switch to a different browser.

Netflix videos won't play

For the past week or so I have been unable to play any Netflix videos in Firefox. Netflix works fine in other browsers and all other video streaming sites I've tried in Firefox still work. Initially the problem was that I would just get stuck on the red loading circle, however, after updating Firefox to the latest version (version 53), I now get an error message on Netflix telling me to check I have the latest version of Firefox, with an error code, F7702-1003. A solution posted from about a year ago involving changing the path in profiles.ini did not help, nor did removing pluginreg.dat.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

My wife just upgraded to Windows 10 and both Foxfire and Thunderbird are missing from the desktop home page. We depend on Thunderbird for our email, and I have no idea how to get the Thunderbird account on her computer now. Is it hidden somewhere in that new Windows OS (I hate it already!)? Or do I have to go through the whole process of downloading and installing and setting up both programs all over again? My wife did not do backups of windows 7 like she should have, so there isn't anything saved that is useful for this purpose. What should I do BEFORE I start the upgrade process on my PC (which I am now using) or my laptop, both of which are still running Windows 7? At 75 I'm getting tired of all the constant changing going on, none of which has made computing easier or faster, just more difficult. Give me Windows 98SE - it was by far the easiest to use and the easiest to reinstall and not lose anything.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

How to get the old 'New tab' back ?

I am encountering a super frustrating issue regarding default search on Firefox.

I have the latest version installed, 58.0.2. On search option, I set my default search engine to Google and I removed the rest of the provided search engines too. I set my homepage to Google as well. I checked the browser search value on about:config and it shows everything is set to Google. Refer to the attached image. I checked all extensions and plugins and nothing is related with search or is messing with it.

After doing all these, I closed Firefox, and re-opened again and it went back to Yahoo. Every time is the same thing, it keeps switching back to Yahoo by itself.

I noticed several persons are having this issue.

Any help?
