After updating to Firefox 27 all webpages take a few dozen seconds to several minutes to load. When loading a webpage Firefox's status displays "connecting" and the CPU gets maxed out with 95 to 100% of its cycles taking by Firefox.

The computer is older so it is a little slow but Internet Explorer 8 has no trouble opening the webpages and neither do other computers on the LAN so it is not a network issue. I have tried restarting Firefox, disabling add-ons, deleting add-ons, disabling hardware acceleration, restarting the computer, and reinstalling Firefox after wiping every trace of it and its user data from the hard drive and registry.

CPU: AMD Athlon 2800+ 2.08GHz RAM: 1GB OS: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 32bit

So recently my Firefox browser has been leaking memory like crazy going up to 1.7 GB in used RAM. It starts off fine when I first open it, but progressively gets worse over time, making scrolling a choppy and painful task. This started with version 28.0 but I've since upgraded to 29.0 and the problem persisted. I've done hours of research on the problem and have tried all the following solutions, to no avail:

- Turning off hardware acceleration/smooth scrolling/auto scrolling - Creating a new profile - Completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox - Running it in safe mode (still lagged, even in safe mode!)

Has anyone found any real solution to this problem?

My extra window: is www.69A.com whois: http://dig.whois.com.au/whois.php?dom=69a.com&secondary=1

I have BRAND NEW OEM install from Lenovo: W7, updated. Lenovo Think Center M93p: standard customizations.

Very paranoid re connecting to web for updares downloads, no warez or cracks, behind a router, NIS in place , all installs scanned prior to running. Only Firefox 29 via stub with usual extensions ( NOScript as one of the first) and Office 365. Flash plugin installed. Other standard plugins.. No freeware added as yet

Even with IE as default, clicking the link opens FF 3 windows. !! Wot ? Flushed cache and cookies.. Scanned with all known scanners: cookies etc, nil else

Uninstalled Firefox. Ran the office > my account link: no extra windows  :(

What is this ?? .... PLEASE MOZILLA SORT THIS OUT. going ahead without FF would be a pain.

Like so many others, I find the ongoing and worsening memory leaks a real disappointment -and now getting worse since V28 on both of my W7 machines.

I am now on FFox V30, and while it starts out at about 300MB, after a few hours it grows to be typically 2.xGB.

I have run the about:memory several times, but don't know how to use the results to any advantage. It appears that about 7 tabs each use about a 1/3-GB of memory.

I typically will have 5-6 windows open, a total of 20-30 tabs.

I have seen several threads on this, but none with any resolution, and dating back to V4 (about 2006)!

Is there any hope, or way to resolve, or just need to jump to Chrome?

Before Firefox 29 I could tell my devices to copy all tabs, bookmarks, passwords,and history from Device A to Device B. THAT is what Sync used to be. Firefox 29 took away that functionality. I used to be able to flawlessly keep two other devices synced up with my main device. Now we have no control over our Sync accounts and it does nothing to Sync devices after you get the "Setup complete" graphic.

So after years of flawless Sync functionality, now all Sync does is nothing.

Mozilla took away functionality from their product. That is the issue I would like someone to address: bring back to Sync the ability to tell my devices to copy all tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and history from Device A to Device B.

In the new sync feature I can select passwords to be synced but then I need to disable my master password.

How exactly are my passwords stored and encrypted when I sync them? I want to be in control of the encryption key that encrypts my passwords. I don't feel that the security solution for storing my passwords in the sync solution has been adequately explained to me.

I'm considering getting lastpass instead.

Firefox's old sync was clunky but extremely useful. I can't get the new sync to work at all, which is not at all useful. Basically, I've gone to Settings > Options > Sync > Unlink this device. That displays a very large dialog box with just one very short statement on it which reads "Determining your account status ..." Apparently, that task takes a very long time indeed because I've let it sit there for two days, and it's still determining my account status. I can click OK or Cancel, and the dialog box will go away. Then, if I go back to Settings > Options > Sync, it doesn't even give me a chance to tell it I want to unlink. Instead it goes directly to the dialog box stating that it's still determining my account status.

I would very much like to be able to sync Firefox across a couple of computers. Is there any way to do that?

First, everything was moved around. Ok, fine, I'm used to that kind of run around now from Mozilla. But I also have an IP address add-on that takes up a lot of horizontal space, and I want it at the bottom of my window, not crowding the top. I have another IP-related add-on which takes up more space, but now I can't even find a way to display it anymore. I'll figure it out eventually, but I use these all the time and it wasn't part of my plan today to figure out where you hid it or spend time setting up yet another add-on that restores the previous firefox version arrangement of things or creates a fake toolbar that mimics the old one. You are disrespecting your customers and wasting my time. You're only popular because people use your browser. Just because it's free doesn't mean you should do whatever you want and expect people to jump. And now you're pushing updates automatically so I can't even defer until I have time to deal with the inevitable post-upgrade difficulty I will have.

Since upgrading to FF29 I get a lot of untrusted connection errors on my work PC which is behind a firewall. These error messages sometimes show the technical details (e.g. plus.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.) but there is no "I know the risks" option provided to bypass and add an exception. I've seen the response about framed windows, but for sites like plus.google.com there isn't a framed window; right clicking doesn't give a "This Frame" menu item. I've deleted the cert8.db file as well, and that didn't resolve the issue.

I can't access much of google. I can't play YouTube HTML5 videos, though I was able to work through the HTML source to at least get the CSS file to load as even that was failing initially. I cannot load the accuweather site, though that doesn't seem to use https and so may be unrelated. I had no problems with any of these sites before upgrading to 29.

FF29, NVidia 335.23 drivers, GTX460, Windows 8.1 Update

When hardware acceleration is enabled, FF29 crashes on start up. When Hardware acceleration is disabled, FF29 opens and works, but slowly.

IE11 hardware acceleration is enabled, with no problems.

Can you please provide a fix for this soon? Disabling hardware acceleration is not an elegant solution to the problem.

Thanks, Steve

Running FF 29...

Whenever I try to print to Nitro PDF, FF hangs...I can't change the file name in the "Save As" box and I end up having to exit out using the X in the upper right hand corner of the window...

I KNOW this is an issue with FF due to the fact I have uninstalled/reinstalled both FF and Nitro...and still the same issue...additionally, I do not have this problem in IE or Opera...

I am finding more and more reasons to move away from FF...and this is just another notch in the negative column...

I see that others seem to be having problems printing to PDFs, so is there a fix in the works?...

I saw in another post that the poster was asked if they reset the printer in the "about" options...Why should we have to do this?...We EXPECT the browser to continue to work from one version to the next...

The only thing really keeping me on FF at this point is the speeddial option, which does not have a compatible add-on for Opera/IE/Chrome, that functions like the one for FF (dial groups)...but if I need to switch, I will do so...
