I have another kind of problem with Firefox
Firefox 3.6.6 is running REALLY slow.
Firefox just updated (automatically - I seemed to have no choice) to 3.6.6 on my Mac (OS 10.5.4) and is now running unbearably slow. Every website I try to load shows, at the bottom left "waiting for" (then website name) and loads very slowly, compared to Safari 3.1.2. I tried clearing the cache but that didn't help.
Even when on Firefox's own Mozilla support pages, it loads really slow.
What gives? Why did Firefox automatically update to something worse? Can I go backwards and reload the previous, faster version?
Mac OS 10.5.4
Using Vista, ever since upgrading to Firefox 3.6.6 my browser is extremely slow. I haven't added any plug ins recently ... the only change is this upgrade.
How do I go back to the old version? Or perhaps I should go to another browser.
I have never had to remove plugins in the past. How do I do this?
Under Preferences > Applications - all I can see is "content type" and "action". Under "action" it shows "use" these three, which I can not remove because I need them:
Quicktime 7.6.4, Shockwave Flash, and RealPlayer.
Are other plugins somewhere in my computer?
It's exactly the same for me. The only add-on I have installed myself is AdBlock Plus and I've never had problems with it. It often takes around a full minute to load a webpage, which is the most annoying thing ever. It started since the 3.6.4 update and the 3.6.6 update didn't fix the problem..
