In the past weeks, suddenly my Firefox started behaving really weird - a few times a day the currently opened tab becomes unresponsive (you can't click or hover anything) but you can still scroll through them (at least a bit - after that point, it's just plain white). At these times, the cursor is the hand one, during the whole unresponsiveness episode, as if everything was clickable (though obviously clicking does nothing). You also can't close the tab during this tab - the only way is either to wait a good 30 seconds for it to unfreeze or to change to a different tab and close the unresponsive one. When you do change tabs, though, the newly opened tab sometimes disappears completely, with a radial loading circle appearing in the middle of the screen for a few seconds before it magically reappears (it does _not_ reload, though!). From what I've been able to observe, this tends to appear on content-heavy websites like Reddit, Facebook and YouTube most often.

What is happening? I haven't changed my browsing habits in the past weeks, nor have I installed any new add-ons. I've tried disabling the ones I have but it's still happening with them turned off. What else may I try?

On June 7, 2018, Firefox Quantum updated automatically to 60.0.2 on my MacBookPro running macOS Sierra 10.12.6. Firefox is my default Browser and it is set to open on my homepage: uk.yahoo.com/. My Yahoo mail is now incredibly slow and I cannot refresh the page without a 30 second delay, if it works at all. In my Yahoo Mail, I cannot open any new emails quickly, I cannot move to spam quickly and I cannot go to trash quickly to empty it. It opens my Homepage, Google Search, Bookmarks and other websites quickly. However, while I am in my Yahoo Mail there are huge delays and freezes. Moving through my Yahoo Mail is slower that it has ever been. It seems to be operating at old dial up speeds. It is not delaying movement between emails or using the move to function by a few seconds but rather 30 seconds on average. It is painfully slow. I do not know if this is relevant but upon opening the URL box displays a green lock but after opening any email it changes to a black lock with a yellow triangle everytime. If it allows me to refresh, the lock goes back to Green. Several months ago, I changed from Yahoo Classic Mail to New Yahoo Mail. I am not using Yahoo Mail Pro that charges a fee for use. I do not know what to do. Last week when using FF quantum 60.0.1 I could not open any attachments. I still cannot open most attachments. It now seems to be hit or miss. I do not know if this is related to the Mail Slowness problem. Please advise? Many thanks.

So yesterday, everything was perfectly normal before I went to bed as usual. But today when I woke up and took my PC out of it's sleep mode, everything I do is as slow as it can be.

Where I really noticed something was wrong is when I opened up YouTube and it took like 30 seconds - 1 minute to load the page completely. Sometimes it even just gives up loading so I'm staring at a blank screen. Clicking on a video, same problem and also some buffering problems once it's actually loaded up. Also it's not only YouTube that's slow, same goes for my Gmail, Twitch, Facebook,.. even just Google takes a while.

So at that point I was guessing I had some problems with my connection but everything seemed fine when I did a speedtest and my Steam is also able to download my games at normal speeds.


Things I have tried so far:

First of all, restarted my pc, I reinstalled Firefox but no success so far. (Also my plugins/addons seem to sync up between Firefox and Chrome, not sure if that might be causing some issues) I started Firefox in safe mode but still the same issue. And finally I disabled Flash hardware accelleration.

I have never had issues with firefox like this so I hope someone can help me out with this.

I get a yellow bar all the time that is preventing pages from loading, it is always prompting me saying a page or script is running slowly do I want to wait or abort.. This is poping up in far less time than it usually takes any webpage to load with any browser on my system. I have stupid windows 8.1... I would prefer 7 as it is easier to use, but there is little that I can do about that other than wipe the disk and put linux on it.

Anyways, how do I give that yellow bar a REASONABLE wait time about 30 seconds instead of a few miliseconds?

Removed all addons, no change! SET Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser to true, no change! Under performance set content process limit to 1, no change (I suspect this is a fake setting, it has no effect on number of processes!!)

PS Everyone else I know that uses Firefox has the same problem, is Mozilla trying to kill it?

Running Firefox 61 (on Windows 10 Pro) on a PC (Intel i7, 16 GB memory, plenty of disk space). When trying to add comments to any story on Fox News (how ironic), the browser quickly slows and then shortly will not respond at all. This begins by the display of my recently typed text (or cursor repositioning via mouse clicks) becoming very slow to show on the screen and then within 5 to 7 minutes, the typed characters do not show at all and the browser becomes fully inoperable. This has been happening for several releases of Firefox, up to, and including 61, and at least two previous updates to Windows. Please help.

Hi dear developers and people who help other people in this forum, I'm Kristian, an old user of Mozilla and since I have installed mozilla of quantum project on my laptop with windows 10, I have notice on the task manager that mozilla drains a lot of ram even with a few tabs open ( Let's say 7). Well my concern is because with Google Chrome (I know that is offensive to compare) I have open more than 30 tabs and its ram consumption is understanble to be higher, nevertheless is really close to mozilla ( Lets say 1GB of RAM). I tried to run mozilla on safe mode with no addons but I get the same result. I tried reduce the content process limit to 2 (4 by default) but again, the RAM consumption still high. I reinstall mozilla, but unfortunately nothing changes. Im the only one with this trouble? Any ideas of what it can be? The mozilla version what Im using is 60 x64 and windows 10 x64 Thanks in advance ps: I attach an image to prove what I wrote

Hi all, I'm using a MSI GF62-7RD laptop running Windows 10 64-bit, latest Firefox version (59.0.2 64-bit). For the last few weeks Firefox on my laptop has been taking years to load almost all web pages, while Internet Explorer on those same occasions was able to load the same pages in good time. The annoying thing is that Firefox on my desktop (Windows 7) is not similarly afflicted. And to make matters even stranger, my laptop when using other internet connections (at friends' houses etc.) is able to use Firefox without the speed issues I get at home.

This problem was also present intermittently on my last laptop (also MSI with the same OS), but now it seems to be a permanent state of affairs. I have variously in the past tried disabling accessibility services, refreshing Firefox, and doing a complete re-install (including deleting all Mozilla folders in the user's Appdata folder). Nothing seems to help....

Hi folks. Really dig FF 99.9999% of the time, but when I get on Facebook, forgetaboutit. It damn near comes to a complete stop instantly when I get on FACEBOOK. ALL, and I mean ALL, other sites on both my desk top and laptop I can breeze right on thru with NO issues...SUPER FAST. With FB, there is a HUGE delay in response to anything clicked on. The scrolling, man, I can spin the wheel to roll the page up or down and nothing happens until I spin the wheel more. Put the pointer on the side scroll up and down arrows and it does not respond well either. ALWAYS in a delay.

Currently using W7 64 bit SP1 which I just re-installed, and it is up to date. Really believe I started to have this issue as far back as 52.

I have Firefox 59.0.2 running on a Win 7 Pro machine and a few times a week Firefox won't load any website. When this happens the workstation completely loses network connectivity. If I use Chrome and don't open Firefox at all for a couple of weeks everything is fine. This issue didn't start happening until I started doing Firefox updates to my original Firefox (sorry, don't know the version of the old one). For the longest time I was running an older Firefox and within the last 6 months started doing updates. It was around this time that this issue surfaced.

I like your browser and I keep trying to use it every couple months. But after a week of using it I have to delete it again. and hope you fix it so I can use it in the future at some point.

Problem is. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to pull up ANY web site. I open the same site in any other browser and they pop up instantly. I've gone through the sites troubleshooting issues. Cleared cache. Uninstalled, Reinstalled. Im reallt tech savvy so I usually can fix almost anything.

Unfortunately again. I have to quit using Firefox. This is really disappointing as it is a great browser when it works.

I am a power user that uses 3 browsers. sometimes 4 at a time and I am having a heck of a time finding good browsers to use.

Hi,

My Firefix Quantum (59.0.2) is a nightmare - after even just a few minutes after start-up, slow, laggy for typing & switching between browsers, and grinds to a halt so I have to re-not start - which is frustrating and becoming unworkable.

I had this problem previously and managed to fix it with an "about:config" solution, but unfortunately I don't remember what.

That said, I since experienced a lot of problems with "Stop Code Kernel Security Check Failure" Blue Screen of Death, despite drivers updated, which ended up corrupting my old Firefox profile so it wouldn't start up.

I had to create a new profile to fix that, but so am since back to this slow and laggy issue again, despite trying many of the "about:config" solutions suggested here (including 'accessibility.force_disabled' change to value 1), nothing seems to work.

Btw, when I open Task manager, Firefox shows 7 'sub' icons despite having 2 windows open and many more tabs for each - 'Memory' for that is running at 670MB - 78% in total, 12% CPU.

Any suggestions? Thank you!
