I've tried EVERYTHING I can find on here to fix the lagging of my firefox. It mostly does it after I've had it up for few hours and/or when I have Raidoloyalty on. I get paid to listen to them so it not working really is pissing me off! Everything I've read and tired works for like MAYBE a month and then it's right back to doing it again. I am NOT going to constantly go back and do all that stuff EVERY month! I shouldn't HAVE to. Isn't there a way to fix this permanently? or at least fix it for 6 to 8 months or something?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Are you talking about doing this for Radioloyalty? Well there is nothing in my history and how is this suppose to help? I found something when looking for firefox plugins crashing. It said to install Shockwave. So I did that. Keeping fingers crossed.

Is the problem with just Raidoloyalty, or web surfing in general?

Like I said I've tried everything I could find on here including that. The first thing you said lasts maybe a day or two. Ok how to explain? It lags/freezes when I have Radioloyalty on and it's been going for like an hour. If I don't have it on then it lasts for like 5 maybe 6 hours before lagging/freezing. Sometimes if I have Radioloyalty on Chrome while I do other stuff on Firefox it works fine..but again it's only for like 5-6 hours. Then I have to shut it off for a bit and then turn it back on. Even then sometimes that doesn't work. Restarting never seems to work I have to actually shut it off and let it sit. I just got a new laptop thinking that would help. WAY better processor and such. It did, for like I think it was about a month. I also have Firefox clearing my cashe out when I close it. I read somewhere to turn ON the Use Hardware Acceleration. Mine was off, so if it was doing it before I turned it on then yeah, but I'll turn it off again.

Are you saying Chrome also has this problem?

No Chrome doesn't. It just likes to reload Radioloyalty randomly...sometimes, but I don't like using Chrome. I really like firefox better. I'd hate to have to permanently switch to Chrome.

So far so good it's been 7 hours and it's still working good :D. I hope this fixed it for good! For now I'll say it's solved.


Well I had a problem with it today all ready. Didn't even take an hour and it was lagging real bad. *sigh*
