Firefox has been "NOT RESPONDING" in title bar and cursor spinning when I have multiple tabs open. Is there a fix to this?
In the last couple of weeks, I noticed that when I had multiple tabs open--e.g. 4 or more, here is what happens:
1-when I am typing (even now as I type this), the cursor frequently stops for a few seconds and that blue circling symbol shows up and it says Mozilla Firefox (not responding). This processes for a few seconds and then it stops. This keeps happening ongoing every time I am typing! it can be very annoying and frustrating and hard to get any online work done...e.g. ordering a product, trying to scroll through and read an article online, etc.
2-I have tried closing out the whole program and all the tabs and starting over again with creating new tabs and it happens again.
3-The only time it stopped is when Firefox crashed a few weeks ago and I submitted a crash report, and it went away for a time, and then it started happening again out of the blue.
I use Windows 7, and use Firefox version 23.0.1
If you have any questions that I can answer to help you diagnose the problem, please ask.
thanking you in advance for your help in resolving this.
