Firefox version: 58.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

When I open new tab or call some site from bookmarks etc. keyboard seems to not work for a while... I noticed that although cursor seems to be in the in the input item which I clicked with mouse - it actually looks like it moving very rapidly between other input columns. Most obvious it is in gmail - but generally this problem is the same for all newly opened websites. I had to wait for at least 30 seconds but usually more - after this time problem is gone and I can input text without any problems. I tried to google for solution but so far without any useful results....

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.

So, i tried several things in the troubleshooting articles here in the Support, but none solved my issues.

Basically, after Firefox automatically updated to 40.0.2, the browser hangs a lot on opening and closing tabs, as well loading websites. When not doing anything, the CPU/RAM usage is normal, but opening or closing tabs uses a lot of CPU (most of the time, 100% of the CPU is being used when browsing) and it hangs every time. Scrolling down pages also causes the browser to hang. I tried disabling several plugins and extensions and I even tried using safe mode, but even in safe mode it happens constantly. I'll post the specs of my computer (not big deal), but remember that these issues didn't happen before the update.

Core 2 Duo, 2.93 GHz 4 GB RAM Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit GeForce 8400GS

Please, did anyone find problems with this new update? What should I do? I've been using Firefox since 2007 and I love it, I'd hate to switch to another one.

Tried refresh, reinstall firefox, no anti-virus program, actually I have no programs, no plugins, no extensions. Added firefox to the windows firewall allowed through list (which I never did with my vista machine) Brand new i5 quad core 3.6khz computer with windows 8.1 All drivers are up to date. It did take 2 weeks to get windows 8.1 finally installed without locking up and having to reinstall for the fifteenth time by disabling all of Microsoft's built in spyware. It's been semi stable for 2 days now. When I install kaspersky av. it adds another couple minutes to firefox launch.

I was really excited about my new suppose to be faster computer but my 10 year old Q6600 2.4khz with vista is way faster and easier to use.  I know I can't be the only one in the world to have this problem.  I've been all over the internet and I see all the problems people are having with windows 8.1. I've got invitation to upgrade to windows 10 but that just locks up the computer again.  Someone, anyone please HELP!

It is nothing in particular, but every since updating to Firefox 44.0.2, everything is hanging and the graphics messing up much quicker in my session. Even typing this, the cursor hangs and has to catch up. I don't know what kind of patch this was, as an update to 44 appeared just earlier last week, but it's made things terribly slow. Who else is having this problem?

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!

I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.

I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.

For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.

Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.

I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.

What is the solution please?

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?

Hi!

I need a little help. My FF is totally slow. I don't know where the problem is. I have open only a few tabs and it is loading too long, maybe 20 seconds and more and also "not responding" for a couple of seconds. I have never had these problems in such a way. FF was slow many times in 10 years of my using of this browser, but this is extreme for me. I tried to get rid of any unnecessary plugins and extensions, it helped for a few days and come again. Then I tried, for me the last solution, restarting/reseting FF to factory defaults... it also helped perfectly, but only for a few days and come again and I'm here, frustrated from FF. This problems I have on more computers and PC's are pretty new. 2x different HP ProBook 455 G2 with AMD A8 APUs and 1x HP ProBook 450 G2 with i3 Intel, if this could help. Plugins and extensions are only basic as I say, so this can't be a problem in my opinion.

Thank you very much for every respond.
