Just reporting issues with the latest Firefox 3.6.6 release where it does not load heavy flash use pages well at all. See www.tsn.ca for an example. It takes 20-30 seconds to fully load the TSN homepage which I noticed started occurring after I had updated to the latest Firefox version. I had the latest Flash plug-ins installed so that wasn't the problem.
I uninstalled Firefox 3.6.6 and located my previous Firefox version 3.6.3 and installed that which totally fixed that issue in loading any Flash websites. Must have been something that was changed in the latest release.
Others I am sure have reported this issue but thought someone should know....to hopefully work out the bugs/issues.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well, the x64 Win7 is not so flawless anyway... i experienced some other issues not only with FF & Flash.
As Kendal recommends, use in the meanwhile a previous version or a beta, i'm using now 4.0b1 and all my settings, addons and flash are working pretty good, also you can keep the 3.6.x version without any conflicts
I have a similar problem.
Also, having problems with Yahoo email...sign comes up saying something like..."problems loading, try later."
I like FireFox; but lately, am having problems with certain websites slow to load. I am thinking about going back to an older version of FireFox.
Também notei que depois que atualizei o Firefox p/ versão mais recente as paginas estão demorando p/ cerregar...espero que consigam resolver o problema.
Here's a snapshot of the error message I get sometimes when I use Firefox 3.6.6 to go to Yahoo email......
I then have to use another browser ....like Microsoft's IE browser to get into Yahoo email.
Hope this gets fixed.
I have been getting very large memory leak issues.. doesn't matter which sites it seems like.. but it just will lag out the computer. I look at the memory usage on Firefox and it's sitting around 1 gig!
Got like Google Voice begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_sky
Firefox 3.6.7 please come out soon and fix these issues!
Same problem - Firefox 3.6.6 on Windows 7 64bit
Since the update Flash pages are sluggish. TSN.ca is a great example because it is unsurfable (I think I just made up a word) in Firefox 3.6.6
I too suspect a memory leak in either Firefox itself or the plug-in wrapper as when I go to TSN.ca 50% of my CPU is being used between both FF and the wrapper (25% each). When no Flash sites are up it's @ maybe 1%
Yes I indeed have the same issue, I noticed it right after the update. The video section of CNN, and even embedded YouTube videos make the browser very slow.
