After updating my firefox to 18.0 on my mac book pro mac os 10.8.2 even i get slowness and hangs on standard pages. For example when i enter facebook the pictures do not display the hourglass appears the program slows down hardly responds and i kill the task. The same issue is also about security certificates 17.0.1 was letting me in to enter for example : fb.playkb.com site. 18.0 just hangs on there too. I tried to update the flash version totally clear and uninstall and fresh install the 18.0. Still hangs. I rolled back to 17.0.1 and it works perfectly.
my firewall antivirus is not blocking anything. 17.0.1 runs smoothly without any problem. i tried to disable the hardware graphics acceleration as well then browser based apps. totally stopped responding like king's bounty legions which needs hardware acceleration. however 17.0.1 runs perfectly with hardware acceleration. why should i disable it? i also tried 19.0 beta version as well same problem there. i checked beta versions of 17.0 and they work perfectly too. what ever done with 18.0 just passed to 19.. and other beta versions..
