Downloaded update 34.0, now it takes 17 seconds to get onto the internet!
I installed update 34.0. It now take 17 seconds to get to my home page. After my home page opens, I can open a new tab, select a web site and the have it open in a split second. I tried resetting firefox, same problem. Changed my home page, same problem. Download version 34.0.5, no difference. My home page has always opened in a matter of seconds, what's up?
It is possible that your security software (firewall, anti-virus) blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to install for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
