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 Searching for one has yielded only outdated results.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!

I have been using Firefox successfully for over six months but in the last few days it is impossibly slow: slow loading, slow connecting to home site, unresponsive to ordinary menu commands, just everything.

Sometime after around Feb 13th, I think I might have rebooted for a Windows update and now Firefox pages completely lock up until the entire page loads.

To be more specific, I can still switch tabs, open menus, etc... but I cannot interact with anything on the page itself like click links, type in text fields, right click to get the context menu... but if I switch to another tab, I can interact with that page just fine. In addition, while the page is frozen like that, I can't use the back button either, but clicking it (or using the back button on my mouse) will make the browser go back only after the page fully loads.

Why is this bad? Some pages can take 10 to 20 seconds or even more to load! So even though I can see the link I want to go to almost immediately, I have to wait until every picture is done loading before I can click it.

In addition, things like the dropdown you get on google as you type in the search box will freeze the page when you select them. For example, I go to google, I type "Firef" then click the Firefox autocomplete. The entire page freezes for a couple of seconds before the screen is cleared and goes white and then it starts loading the next page.

Other things I've noticed, those google captcha things where you click the checkbox for "I am not a robot"; those can take over 15 seconds to load and freeze up the page PLUS clicking the checkbox ALSO freezes the page again for another 15 seconds.

This happens in safe mode too and with all addons disabled.

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.

Firefox will not load. I installed Kaspersky Internet Security and everything was working fine until it wasn't. I then uninstalled Kaspersky, but Firefox would still not load.

Since I love Firefox I restored my computer to a previous state and that fixed everything, so then I installed a different Kaspersky product and everything was perfect. Now the problem is back again.

I don't know if the problem is on Kaspersky side or Firefox, but I would prefer not to restore again and I have no more troubleshooting ideas.

Firefox starts in Windows safe mode. When I double click on the Firefox icon the mouse indicates FF is loading, but then it doesn't start. Chrome starts fine. Contacted Kaspersky, but their first troubleshooting tip did not work. Under Event viewer I can see crash details for Firefox, but I can't interpret them and I don't know if they are related to FF not loading.

I'm okay with unintelligible Firefox and then reinstalling, but I do not want to lose my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

All drop-down menus do not show and right-click does nothing after a period of time

This problem started for me around 4ish months ago, but I couldn't tell you the version number I was on at the time. I'm having the exact same issue on two different physical computers both running Windows 7 Pro x64, while I do not have this issue on my work computer running Windows 10 Pro x64.

The Problem:

After a period of time, sometimes 6-8 hours, sometimes 48 hours, I am no longer given any context menu's when I right-click in FireFox, either on a webpage or on the toolbar areas. This typically happens when leaving FireFox open and idle over night, then I see the problem in the morning, or some mornings it works fine and continues to throughout the day, but then stops the following day. So, for example, I am unable to Pin or Unpin tabs when this happens, nor can I right-click anywhere. Also, when I click on the Menu or Bookmarks button, nothing pops down. The button changes colors to a darker shade like it is de-pressed but the menu does not appear. This happens in drop-down menu's on websites as well - they do not appear. I am able to use the up and down arrows, or letter keys, to move around them but the drop-down is gone completely.

This is all fixed if I close FireFox and re-open it. Seemingly a timer is reset and everything works again for a while.

What I've done:

I started with simple things like unpinning my tabs, closing tabs and removing extensions but non of that worked. I then backed up and deleted my entire Firefox profile under AppData - Local but it started happening on my new profile also. Earlier this week I completely uninstalled FireFox and the update service, and deleted everything Mozilla from all three AppData folders as well as ProgramData. I rebooted and then re-installed FireFox using Ninite. I did not import any data, pin any tabs, install any add-ons or save any passwords. I was trying to be as vanilla as possible, but the problem was happening again the next morning. Yesterday I started FireFox in Safe Mode and am having the same problem running in Safe Mode.

This effort so far has been concentrated on one of my two machines experiencing this problem, as I was hoping to solve it on one and then apply the solution to the other, but I am at a loss. I can't imagine that additional Windows programs would cause this but there are a few overlapping programs between the two.

I have Microsoft Security Essentials and MalwareBytes Premium installed on this primary machine having the issues, whereas I do not have MalwareBytes installed on the other machine also having this issue. I thought the Web Protection may be interfering but I don't believe so now.

One other similarity is that both computers are non-domain and the primary account used on both is a non-admin account purposely (I try not to run as admin unless absolutely necessary, for obvious reasons). I'm wondering if possibly not running as an admin is causing an issue somehow? I will try temporarily making myself an admin tonight and leave FireFox in Safe Mode idle again to see if anything has changed.

Other than that, would you have any ideas or things I may be able to try? I'm open to anything at this point, I just want this fixed! I don't want to move to Chrome. :(

With versions of Firefox later than 34 (or possibly 35 - not sure) attempting to open a page link from an email in Thunderbird and occasionally other sources, results in Firefox 36 and 37 hanging for up to a minute before opening the new tab and page, so I am forced to use 34 to retain smooth operation.

I have not included the Troubleshooting Information as the problem does not relate to the Firefox version currently in use.

Edit: I asked the question originally in this thread which will show some of the things which were suggested and tried:

If I am working online and leave for a few hours and then come back and go to open a new tab or even reload an existing tab or go to a new website using an already open tab, the only thing I get is the "spinning circle of death." I then must exit out of FF. Then when I go to reopen FF I get a window that says FF is still open, even though it is not and do I want to shut it down, so I click yes. Then I am able to reopen FF, but always get a message that says my user profile cannot be loaded properly, so I have click on that and reopen a second time. Then it finally opens and I am able to work fairly well until the same problem happens again.

I am really not sure what changed, but I never had this problem, I could leave FF open for days and come back and then open a new tab just fine and begin working again.

Firefox 41.0, Win 10 Pro x64. Recently (possibly before V41) Firefox pages hang with very low cpu on some sites. Firefox itself is not hung, but for that tab, the clock indicator keeps ticking. I'm opening the problem while another tab is experiencing the problem. Some data from the web site is usually displayed (background?). Perhaps there is a redirect/redisplay of some sort (complete guess). Note: In this case, the web site is grayed out. Example: https://www.code42.com/store/ Problem occurred when I navigated to the above URL. Also occurred when I pasted the URL. Works in Chrome Version 45.0.2454.101 m. Works in Edge 20.10240.16384.0

Note: right now, as I try to upload an image, the upload doesn't complete. Clock ticks.

I'm going to try to submit this anyway.

I'm running XP64 pro. The scripts on Yahoo will stall FF after a few minutes. Often I get the popup message that a plugin script has stalled and asks if I want to prevent seeing this again from the site. That's nice but every page on Yahoo is unique. So the stall happens on every page that isn't closed after a short while. The more stalls I get the slower my computer runs even though I use task manager to kill stalled processes. Then I have to reboot to clear out the FF remnants. Is there a way to kill remnants of stalled scripts without rebooting? Often FF crashes and asks me to send a report to Mozilla. Seems to me you guys should have a feature to enable extended logging for inclusion in crash reports. I have sent many requests to fix the problem. If you guys can't fix the root cause of the problem then can you at least provide a decent workaround so the memory doesn't get cluttered up with orphaned threads sucking up all my CPU power?
