Firefox freezes whilst scrolling down on Facebook, and a bit more

Kuphostiwe

Well, I have some problems with Firefox. Firstly, it freezes for 2-3 seconds when I try to scroll down so that new content would appear on the page. Secondly, Firefox makes error whilst watching a stream on Twitch.tv and it was something like "stop plugin or continue". (I am not sure about the details) And ultimately, Firefox is literally way slower than Chrome as far as I experienced. Despite not freezing, scrolling down/up on the other websites, like Reddit, is still a hideous experience for me on these last versions of Firefox. (I think these problems started after Firefox 2 firstly, yet it accumulated until today and it is unbearable right now for me.)

Anyway, I am on the verge of uninstalling Firefox because of these speed/crash issues all the time I encounter. I really really need help. Thanks so much!

By the way, my laptop has:

Intel i5 4200m cpu @ 2.5 ghz 8.00 gb ram nvidia geforce gt 740m

And I have AdBlock, Last Pass add-ons on my browser.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the tool bar. Followed by;

Windows; Tools > Options Linux; Edit > Preferences Mac; application name > Preferences

Then Advanced > General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

Then restart.

This seemed to fix the problem that I encounter concerning slowness/crashes. I actually did step up, and removed Firefox completely with the help of 3rd party programs like Revo and CCleaner. It works fine for now. :)

I do not use any anti virus program or software. I am going to take a snapshot and post it here if I experience that flashplayer crash again.

Thanks so much mate! Everything is fine. :)
