Hello, Firefox takes more than 30 seconds to load. Thunderbird is also slow. I've had this problem before at the end of last year. After a while it got better. But now I have to wait again. I scanned windows with various anti-virus and anti-malware programs. I have absolutely nothing. I only use Microsoft anti-virus. I have run many repair options on the net. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. This long wait to load before I can use the software is really irritating. Internet Explorer starts within 3 to 5 seconds including the display of the first page. Best regards Otto Haldi

Firefox huge memory consumption - who's lying ?

I try to keep always open some tabs in Firefox,, probably already too many (it's not unusual to have 25-30 tabs opened, each having it's internet page). I'm using Firefox up-to-date on Windows 10 Home already at version 20H2.

So, quite quickly Task Manager comes to report that Firefox takes 1400-1600 of RAM (out of the laptop's total of 6 GB). At the same time, Firefox's internal Task manager pretends that memory taken by all tabs does not sum up more than cca 650 MB !!! This is concur with about:memory tab if I try that too.

Here's a capture taken with Snip&Sketch having both Firefox's tab with it's internal task manager, + Windows's Task manager over it (attached).


I feel like I'm cheated here, but ... who is most closer lay blame on ? Who is more likely to lie in this case ?0 Firefox or Task Manager ?

I tend to believe it's Firefox, but I'm willing to have other opinions. Are there extra memory taken by Firefox that is not reported in the about:memory tab, or in it's internal task manager ? (I'm onto this, I believe that there is something that is not reported, but so far have not a shred of evidence on this).

This is exactly why on my computer at work (on an OpenSUSE install) I gave up on Firefox and turned to Chrome, because on this one I can trust the internal task manager, and it does not crush my Linux box like Firefox eventually have done with it's crazy memory consumption and/or CPU huge load from time to time. I am still using Firefox on the home Windows 10 laptop because I share it with my wife, and decided she is to use Chrome, and myself Firefox:-)

OS: Windows 10-64 Home or Windows 10-64 Pro Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685) with all current updates Firefox: 84.0.2 (64-bit)


For about a week now a few websites are taking a long time to load on my 4 PCs (examples: ebay.com, walmart.com, pch.com). If I click the link on the search page it takes almost 30 sec to load, right click and open in a new tab same time, and open a new tab and type or paste address the same amount of time. Most other website open almost immediately.

The issue does not resolve in safe-mode or if I manually disable add-ons. I'm using the default theme.

All websites load without issue on Chrome and Edge.

Hi, I have used Firefox for many, many years and never had an issue till now. And it is only on Facebook., Version 84.0.2 and the one before this one whenever i use facebook and start playing any videos it slows down and lags. I try the same in Chrome and no issue. What did Firefox do just recently to Facebook's website or maybe their security or? Not sure but it is almost making me leave for Chrome.

Firefox slow to load, 20-30 seconds. Appears is opening more than one instance with a single click. When it does load it sometimes comes up with the last page I had open even tough I closed it out properly. Sometimes get error msg that must close out 2nd Firefox before can start Firefox but saying yes results in the current open window closing. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically installed yesterday? Window 7. Cleared cash. Disabled all add on's etc. No help. Close out Firefox and Task Mngr show no Firefox running. Start Firefox and Task mngr shows four/five Firefox running. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically updated yesterday. Any ideas.

Hi, for some version (now I'm using 77.0 and everything is fine), when the writings are on a white part of the video, they have grainy edges and are unwatchable. This does not happen neither with Opera, nor with Edge and not even with Chrome. Not even with 84.0.2 the problem was solved. I kindly ask for help.

Due to my work I often have several tabs open for upwards of 12 hours at a time. This being said, for some reason after roughly 8-14 hours of being open my internet slowly gets weaker and weaker, it never completely turns off, and the internet works perfectl for my browser, however other programs (discord, photoshop, minecraft, anything that uses a passive amount of information) slow down until I restart firefox completely. It sometimes slow my 70mb/s+ upload/download to .1mb/s measurable upload/download and if i can fix this somehow that would be wonderful.

I'm at my wits end. I've tried every fix I could find and Firefox is dramatically slower then Edge or Chrome. This happens with loading sites, like Amazon. Also, it often locks up/stops when typing (like right now) and it takes about 15 seconds for it to repond again.

First, I doubt it's a hardware or network issue, since it's happened on both my old archaic PC and now on my new PC (i9 CPU, Nvidia 2070 graphics card, 64gb RAM).

Here's some highlights of what I've tried so far: • Refreshing multiple times • Rebooting the PC • Doing all the Quick Tips on this website • Eliminating all extensions • Clearing all cookies and cash • ...

Also, I don't get any error codes. The tab icon just spins for a long time.

I'm hoping I'm missing something obvious, since I love Firefox.

Thanks and any help!

I have used FF for years, now V82 on W7 starts out fine, but bogs down to point you can not type. I have tried all the fixes noted here without success. Monitoring both Windows Task Manager and FF Task Manager shows nothing unusual when this happens. Internet speed is 100MBS.

Turning off addons, limiting Tabs, clearing history, updating drivers, minimizing background programs, etc., has little or no effect. FF just bogs down, and usually doesn't recover until restarted.

This appears to be particularly noticeable on ebay, but does happen at random on other sites. Where else can I look for a clue to what the problem is?

Hi! As the title states, since the latest windows update (am now on 19041.508), anytime I go on a webpage on Firefox it's extremely slow to load, however once loaded the page is as fast as it should be!

I don't have any antivirus other than windows defender, and disabling it/the windows firewall doesn't fix the issue, so it doesn't seem to be linked to that either, on the online forums such as this one I found it was also common to have issues caused by hardware acceleration, playing with that setting does not help either.

Another friend of mine has the same issue as me since the last update, so I'm assuming it's not something unique to my situation, is this a known issue for which a fix is available? Searching for one has yielded only outdated results.

Thanks a lot!

A month to a few weeks ago Firefox started being laggy when switching tabs; also Facebook and Facebook Messenger; on Board Game Arena and also on Discord desktop app (using Electron/chromium) typing was getting laggy. I thought it might be hardware so I tested the memory with memtest86 but that passed. I also tried safe mode on Firefox but that made no difference.

So I reimaged my HD to a known good copy from December 2019 and then also recently to 2018 and updated to latest version of Windows 10. All seemed well but recently again Firefox has gotten laggy. Even typing in here it occassionally hangs.

I've attached a Firefox Profiler link https://share.firefox.dev/2Zlua5o if that helps with me doing moves on https://boardgamearena.com/ website with each move taking several seconds to do.

I have also the profile with more private information if that helps.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

Recently Firefox has become nearly unusable. Opening links are *_sluggish_*... They eventually complete but it's annoying - I've switched back to brave for now. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175357 seems to be the exact same issue however nothing in the thread resolved my problem.

I'd like to stay with Firefox but it's not worth it at this time. :(

Any thoughts/help are much appreciated.

I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.

I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.

For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.

Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.

I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.

What is the solution please?

This has now happened after the last two Mac updates. I get the TLS handshake forever until it times out. Occasionally something gets through (like the Mozilla help pages!) Unlike others who have posted this issue, the same problem holds in Chrome and Safari. I have tried various fixes, including a new identity on my Mac, with no success. Last time the issue seemed to spontaneously resolve after a couple of hours and never reappeared until Mac updated again. While all this is happening, my email works fine, my husband's macbook pro (just like mine) works fine, and my iPad works fine. I have left this message on the Mac help forum, too, hoping someone will have some idea of what is happening. OS Mojave 10.14.6

When Firefox updates, it's an extremely frustrating experience. Enough so that I'm about ready to switch over to Chrome (I already use it for work). Every single time, websites suddenly can't load and all my extensions stop working. It's happening now! I'm writing this from Chrome.

I'm frankly not sure when or why websites start loading again, but it seems to take about a day for things to get back to normal. I've tried closing and reopening Firefox, but that doesn't seem to do anything. It just takes time. I have a 2017 MacBook, OS Catalina 10.15.3.

Is this a known issue? I see all kinds of possible solutions when I try and look for some myself, but oftentimes the OP says they didn't work and then people offer other solutions. I'm wondering why this seems to happen, and if there's a suggestion for how to fix it once and for all—I've never had this problem with Chrome.
