I suppose I need two profiles, one for Firefox, one for Waterfox. What is the best way to accomplish this without creating a mess. I have installed both, and want to be able to use both, simultaneously if possible.

I did find the article on Using the profile manager to create.... at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

but it's not enough to move forward confidently. Right now, the default seems to be firefox. attempts to load waterfox load firefox.

Thank you. BTW, I have all my plugins on "Ask first". Incredible change in speed, and no more 'hang's' and crashes.

Firefox has been a bit slow lately, stalling sometimes, and it's begun crashing at random intervals, sometimes when I'm not even doing anything. I hadn't updated in a while, so I went and did that, hoping that would cure it, but that's a no-go. So I went and checked the latest crash report and the reason came up as:

EXC_BAD_ACCESS / 0x0000000d

I'm afraid I don't know what this means or how to fix it.

I used to use firefox almost exclusively, it was so good. But I had to reinstall, and also there are newer versions and it has become such a troublesome browser I use the others.

 The main problem is firefox hangs if I click a link in a webpage, and it actually times out -- something I haven't had happen in years. I have the fastest connection, I have a fast notebook. This had never been a problem before.
 One troublehooting suggestion was to disable extensions and add-ons. I did look there, but I don't have any. There were three extensions, all disabled.
 Then I looked under the "add-ons" manager and there are a dozen. I all have them set on "ask to activate." I don't know if this is the problem. I don't want this browser using anything other than the adobe pdf file, so I have set it so it won't assume and change my pdf files. 
 I have no issues with video and sound. But the hanging and timing out is making me nuts.
 I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks,
Gina

I am using Window 7. I have very serious problem with speed in firefox when connected with internet. It works very slow. When I tested without internet it was working normal. I have tried various anti-virus tools and adware removal softwares. I also contacted with internet service provider. But when I test internet speed it shows around 2 MB or enough desired speed.

I also replaced my hard drive in the doubt of any damage. I am using dell-3500 laptop with intel i3 core processor (32 bit OS) Surprisingly when I uninstall and re-install firefox browser it shows always previously installed adons and setting looking like using old settings. Sometime but not always it also shows the popup like : "some type of script is running . do you want to debug or stop". Now going to be very frustrated not able to detect exact issue of slowing down of browser. Sometime so slow that if I scroll down with mouse it jerk and take few seconds to shift only one inch downward and when I open new tab it takes 20-30 sec to open new web page. I am looking for any help.

Hello,

Been using Firefox for years and refuse to switch to Chrome, but it gets kinda frustrating atm and im leaning towards Chrome lol...

If my firefox version is open longer then 24 hours, and there is a flash item in it, it will eat resources till my computer almost dies. Its open for +24 hours now. And Firefox.exe eats 1,2GB memory and 11% cpu

Firefox is open 2x with 20 tabs? I dont really care about the memory or cpu usage, but i do care about the. For instance, if its open longer then a few hours and i watched some flash stuff, i open a small youtube clip on the left, and scroll on facebook on the right screen the small clip is all stuttering etc.. and if that gets as bad, Scripts will be stopped by firefox, Flash does exactly the same.

So if i let my pc run if i go to work and come back with 10 tabs open, the browser is just laggy and not ok to work with. Tho better hardware does "solve" it, but thats a 8 hours ++ kinda.

My personal pc at home: i3 4310 with 8GB memory and a SSD. Win7 At work: i5 2500k 8GB and a SSD. Win7

Im kinda "home" to computers, as i work daily with them / solve problems with them bla bla..

It just seems to get more regulair with the trouble with Flash and Firefox. Tho i love firefox.. :( This is a problem getting bigger every quarter of a year for the last 3 years.

If i close firefox and restart its okay again for a few hours.. and then its crashing scripts and flash again, Im not putting this on Firefox, but i wanna know where this is going wrong. Ive got the same problem everywhere, i tried full resets defaults. I scanned my PC for spyware with MBAM, Combofix, SuperAntiSpyware.. And i even reinstalled my complete Windows installation at work a few weeks ago because of it.

Hope this is enough information..

Thank u.

I recently purchased a new HP laptop with Windows 8. I had been using Firefox and Thunderbird on both my old laptop and desktop with no problem. However, since trying to use both on my new machine, Firefox has slowed down to the point of making it impractical to use. And whenever I log into Thunderbird, it takes at least 10 minutes and more before Thunderbird becomes responsive.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Are there any solutions?

I have noticed when I have my favourite radio station podcast loaded and I minimize the FF window to the taskbar the PC slows down? !!! url = http://www.rtbf.be/radio/liveradio/classic21 The PC is running WinXP SP3 +ALL updates and FireFox 37.0.1 The hardware is Asus P5Q Pro with an Intel E8500 Dual core CPU. Gfx = Ge Force 9700GT with the ver. 340.52 driver pack installed and 2 monitors attached. Mouse is Logitech with ver. 6.65 driver package installed. The scenario. I have MS Office Outlook and MS Word running + FF with a radio station playing. Radio is ON and the CPU load is 15-16% (window is on screen) now I click the Minimize button and the CPU load goes up ~ 10% to 26-28% and the PC slows down NOTICEABLY!

Next scenario. I have MS Office Outlook and MS Word running + FF with my home page showing, CPU load is ~5% (normal). now I click the Minimize button and the CPU load goes DOWN to 2-3% (normal) Any ideas anyone? ??????.

This problem has been around forever but it seems to have been happening more and more. I live a life constantly restarting firefox because it eats a ton of ram.

It does this on multiple computers. My computers are not shabby either. Right now i am running a fast i5 processor, new SSD drive and 32gigs of ram.

I typically have about 4-5 instances of Firefox running with around 10-20 total tabs open. Usually articles and stuff. And over the course of the day my firefox jumps to over 2gigs ram and starts to bog down my CPU and i have to close it a few times. - My only addons right now are All in one gestures at work and firegestures at home. - I have had clean installs and clean profiles - I have done some of the troubleshooting tips. I am an IT guy

Any idea what i can do to somehow have firefox release its memory. I think it crashed on me today while using Amazon.

I am not very knowledgeable so have not restarted in safe mode, refreshed F/F or reinstalled F/F. I have checked plugins and they are up to date. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I have just reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop computer thinking that it might help with my Firefox slowness problems. I have also ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware and Avast Antivirus where there were no infections. There is a delay just as I am typing on the keyboard to you. I have the most up to date version of Firefox, Java, and Adobe Flash Player. I regularly use Ccleaner to delete temporary internet files, cookies, etc. and I also use it to clean my registry. I have all of the latest windows updates although I am not using Windows 10 yet. Please help me, I am at a loss and not sure what to do at this point. I have some plugins though I do not have any add ons. Will plugins cause lagging/slow browser? I have not tried another browser though I'm ready to switch to one if I cannot resolve this problem. I really like Firefox and don't want to change. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!
