For a few weeks I have been trying to fix an extremely slow Firefox, with slow respose to keys and to mouse, and some websites have taked a minute or more to connect (also trying to move the window with the mouse is jerky). It's unusable and I've had to resort to Internet Explorer, which has kept up to speed, as has everything else on the computer.
I've tried many supposed remedies found by internet search and on the Firefox support pages, including malware scans (all clean, apparently), safe mode, creating a new profile, etc.. And done a registry clean. I did find that after a System Restore it ran fast, but the next day (i.e. on restarting the computer) it ran slow again. Anyway, system restore is not a practical solution.
Finally I think the best situation to report is this.
- if I run msconfig and tick Normal Startup, and then restart (without switching off), then firefox runs fast and everything is as it should be; this is true also with restored bookmarks and passwords, and all the add-ons and plug-ins allowed.
- but if I restart after machine switchoff (and today just a menu restart without doing the msconfig thing), then Firefox reverts to slow again.
I can't make head or tail of why this is so. Can you advise?
