Lagging

My Firefox constantly Lags and gives me the white screen with "Not Responding". I am pissed with Firefox, fustrated and not happy with the browser lagging constantly and being a huge memory hog.

Re: Lagging

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Re: Lagging

I tried that and it still didn't work. My flash is updated, Java is updated but the lagging and "Not responding" crap is still happening. I am frustrated, pissed and angry that Firefox is not working right.

Re: Lagging

A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
