Slow Start with Firefox 50.1.0 update

Kuphostiwe

Ever since the Dec 16th upgrade to 50.1.0 - FIrefox start up times went from about 5 seconds or over 20 Seconds - very frustrating. Find myself opening multiple Firefox images while waiting for the first click to open Firefox.

Running on Windows 10 Home version

Can I revert to Firefox 50.0.2 ????

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?


Separate Security Issue: Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the active_x.

Still takes 24 seconds to bring up Firefox window that asks for a safe start (shift key). Starts in Safe Mode right away after the initial wait. Then next time I start Firefox - back to the 24 second delay. Looking at the history of time to start metrics - this happened since the 50.1.0 update in mid December - never had the problem before.

Getting message in address bar after clean install of OSX 10.9.5 and reinstall of FF 50.1.0: "Mozilla Firefox seems slow to start learn how to speed it up" with buttons to select.

I googled and found this was a problem in FF 28 from 2014, but the solutions haven't worked for me (reset, checking addons, etc.)

Another issue: Somehow I ended up with an addon, Disconnect 3.15.3.1-signed.1-signed, which I did not add. Is this malware? I purchased Malware Bytes which didn't pick up anything. Here is the site it goes to: "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/#reviews"

I have removed it using the FF Add-ons manager.

"Mozilla Firefox seems slow to start learn how to speed it up"

When Firefox thinks it is slow, it gives this message. What that does is to reset the browser.

Refreshing Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Refreshing Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs. Everything else, like user settings and add-ons are removed.

That is an add-on at the Mozilla site. As to how you got it . . . . . . . . .

Thanks for the quick response. Since I asked the question, I've taken a screen shot (attached) from the last time I got this the message. In the status bar it reads, "Mozilla Firefox seems slow...to...start." [with buttons: "Learn How to Speed It Up" and "Don't Tell Me Again" x ].

Just need to make sure this isn't generated by a badware installer.

Yes, refreshing was a last resort but did not fix the slowness.

Does Firefox seem slow to you? If not press "Don't Tell Me Again."

If the browser does seem to be slow,

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?
