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.

OS: Windows 7pro Sp1 64bit History: About 3 updates ago Firefox started to randomly hang when I entered text, such as text in Gmail or in search engine windows. Or while filling out this help request. I tried unsuccessfully all the suggested remedies. I then uninstalled Firefox, and deleted any remaining references to Firefox and Mozilla in the registry. Finally I downloaded and did a fresh reinstall of the latest version. I used Febe to restore Bookmarks and Passwords. The problem continues. Details: Leaving Firefox by clicking on any icon on the taskbar or clicking on the desktop and then returning to Firefox restores the ability to enter text. Until the next hang. Amount of text I can enter between hangs seems random. It can be a few words or several paragraphs. When Firefox hangs the cursor stops blinking and the program becomes unresponsive to any input. Plea: Is there a solution or do I have to give up on my favorite browser and switch to Chrome or (gulp)IE? Thanks in advance for any help!

Running Windows 7 Pro x64, Intel core i7, 8GB RAM

Firefox 40.0.3 was hanging a lot when browsing eBay pages after upgrading. Removing all addons did not resolve the issue, nor did clearing cache or re-installing 40.0.3.

Re-installing 40.0.2 resolved the issue.

Some change introduced in 40.0.3 or possible eBay site upgrade is causing one of the top ecommerce sites to becomes unusable.

I recommend contacting ebay techs to resolve this issue if you believe the change did not occur on the Firefox end.

Additionally, when bringing up the task manager application, I see the ffcert.exe is running most of the time when the hangs occur. I never noticed this app previously, but that may be due to the hang not occurring so I had no reason to keep task manager open.

Not only I tried a fresh reinstall, I tried resetting all settings, safe-mode, rebooting, disabling hardware acceleration, upping the amount of processes FF uses, ALL the solutions the questions normally had... you name it.

This won't be solved by any of the other solutions I found here or anywhere else.

EVERY SINGLE TIME I open a new tab, FF Quantum (version 57, up to date as of today November 16th) freezes for 5 to 15 seconds. If I have a youtube video opened for example, the sound keeps playing (so the video is still playing on the "background") but I can't click anywhere or do anything, can't close the browser either if I don't open the task manager and shut down the process.

It's getting REALLY annoying, but I want to get a fix before I definitely decide to swap to Chrome. Please, don't make me switch to Chrome.

I have read and tried several of the fixes for this but I continue to have firefox over a period of time use up to 6 gigs of ram. I have spent several hours on this and I just want to let mozilla know that I am going to give up and go to a browser that doesn't cause my whole computer to freeze up because of this memory problem. I have used and recommended Firefox for many years but I no longer fell like I can do this with the current version of firefox. I did not have this trouble before this version.

 I also do computer tech work and I will now have to recommend a different browser to my clients in case they have

the same problem as me.

 I dont feel that it should take several hours of trying solutions to see if I can fix something that is a problem I didnt have

until this version of firefox. So much for it being much faster and better, this is not my experience.

Hello,

I'm using an iMac, running the most recent OS (High Sierra, 10.10.3). After the recent update I'm experiencing a lot of lag with Firefox. If I open Facebook, for example, it takes several seconds to scroll, and it's unable to play two videos simultaneously. This is a new issue that I haven't experienced before. I've already reinstalled Firefox and deleted everything from the cache/cookies, but to no avail. I've also tried Safari and Chrome, and they don't have the issues.

Any help much appreciated.

This has been an ongoing issue for a long time now, as long as I can remember. I click to open FF from my desktop, it opens fast, but hangs for anywhere from 4 to 8 seconds upon initial load before it even attempts to connect to my set homepage, which is www.google.com (I've tried other variations too, google.ca, google.com/ncr etc etc).

I've tried clearing my cache, completely reinstalling FF, safemode, disabling themes, disabling addons and re-enabling addons, with no luck, the same HANG persists.

Shouldn't FF load just fine and then immediately try connecting to my homepage? What's with this "Connecting..." every time I initially load the program?

I'm completely stumped here, I've tried everything,,,,, Something is causing firefox to delay at startup or it's hanging for no reason too long because it thinks the program hasn't loaded fully yet, but it has. Some sort of timing issue or something.

Please view the attached screenshot jpg file I've included with this post to see exactly what I see everytime I load FF for the first 4 to 8 seconds. I know computers and the inner workings of things and how to use about:config etc etc, so I'll be able to follow even the most difficult of directions if you have a solution. Thankyou ahead of time for reading this post, I look forward to your reply!
