Go to HELP and select "Restart with add-ons disabled". If access speeds back up then there is a problem with an addon of plugin. Post back here with results.

Re: Firefox 4.0.1 is extremly slow - slower than previous versions

Same here. It took Firefox 4.0.1 over 35 seconds to load this very page, while IE loaded it in less than 2 seconds. This is repeated on every single site I try today and yesterday. Also, when a page finally chooses to load, controlls are often missing. I have given up and moved all of my bookmarks over to IE. I hope that someone will let me know when the problem is fixed. Thank you. I will miss you dearly.

Yes, i do hope they get this fixed. There are various plugins i rely on to do my job as a webmaster that cut my development time in half or more. And right now it is just a pain in the you know what! I have to say this is the first time I am really disappointed with a Firefox Version.

Firefox team I am looking forward to a return to the greatness that was ... Thanks Mel

I did not install 4.0 nor apparently will I be doing so for 4.1 either, What is going on with Mozilla? I have 3.6.17 an until I read some positive comments about the 4 series I don't think I'll be using any of that series, As much as I am not a fan of IE, if Mozilla keeps messing up like this IE will have to be seriously considered again.

Yes, not only is it very slow in general, but I spend a lot of time looking at the screen while reading that Firefox is not responding, which I already know. I'm going to look next for info on how to go back to the old version. Too bad, I like the sync feature.

YUCK! The 4.0 versions is basically useless. Too slow. It needs a serious fix. I would rather suffer through IE than this system. Now I have to search this slow system to find out how to go back to old version.

Ditto. As a browser its completely useless unless you redefine useful as "constantly waiting for not responding to disappear."

I removed all but two add-ons and revamped the profile. I then went an installed version 4.1, With all that Firefox appears to still be slow. A once good WEB browser now appears to be going to hell in a hand basket. I agree GET IT TOGETHER MOZILLA. If necessary fire the whole damn lot of your programers, because they screwed this version up.

Re: Firefox 4.0.1 is extremly slow - slower than previous versions

4.0 worked perfect. 4.01 NOT! I'm having all sorts of issues, from being slow, to having to accept every single page and worse, sometimes frames... I can't view videos on FBook. I tweaked it to view pix b/c I couldn't do that either (and it depended on what page of FB I was on, so I had to do this like three times) It even shows banks as not trusted. I want my 4.0 BACK! how can i remove the latest update 4.01? Anyone know?
