When I right click and select from menu or tap on a drop-down menu and choose what I want, browser freezes for about 10-15 seconds before resuming the action.

This has been going on for several weeks and I cannot figure out why.

Super annoying

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

No this did not help, it continues to lag, just a few seconds less but it's still there.

Hi FirefoxWhodi,

Try refreshing the browser.

  • Click the menu icon, then click on “Help”. Click on Firefox's main menu button, represented by three horizontal lines.
  • Click “Troubleshooting Information”.
  • Click on “Refresh Firefox”.
  • Confirm.
  • Click “Finish”.

Hope it helps. Good Luck !!

I don't want to get rid of my add-ons. Will this clean out the active tabs I have open?

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. Note: Refresh saves your old profile to the desktop in a folder called Old Firefox.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

I tried to Refresh and now it's happening when I click on links in excel spreadsheets or email. It freezes up FF for 5-10 seconds before loading the page.

BTW I'm on Windows 10, not Linux.

Is that browser-based or literally my computer? Sorry I'm a bit slow.

Hello FirefoxWhodi, If I was you, I would just uninstall and reinstall Firefox from the official site: https://bit.ly/dwltommy Tell me if that Helped, and Stay Safe!

That seems like a random suggestion because we don't know the root cause of the problem. If it doesn't solve it (which I don't believe it will) because Firefox refresh does relatively the same thing. It would just be more of hassle than an actual solution.

Has to be a true reason why this is going on all of a sudden. Note, I do have 160 tabs open (but only 5 are in use and the rest are not loaded yet).

Sorry @FirefoxWhodi, Im not that experienced and I don't really know what to do. I think @FredMcD can help you on this one. Again, I am very sorry I couldn't do much and Stay Safe!

We do recommend a full, clean reinstall when we suspect the browser files were corrupted.

In most computers, there are several types of Safe Mode. The primary ones used most are;

  • Safe Mode: Only programs that came with the computer are started. No other programs will be started unless the user starts them.
  • Safe Mode with Networking: Same as above but the network drivers (internet) will also be running.

This is a way to test if one of the other programs on the computer is causing the issue.
