It seems to just be happening with Facebook but it freezes to the point that I cannot move the cursor. Ctrl alt del does nothing. The only option it to turn the laptop off completely and restart it. I have just gone through the process of a factory reset with Vista and the same thing is still happening. I synced Firefox before hand so is it my settings somewhere? I do have Adblocker, Ghostery and such installed too. I'm going to try Facebook on Explorer and see if it still freezes. I tried turning off the graphic acceleration thingy as someone suggested in another forum but it still happens. I can't believe that it is simply the laptop overheating as it seems to be so focused on just one site. Many thanks in advance to you all for help!

This really gives me a hard time as I needed to restart firefox. I've checked the Task Manager during this slow period and it's taking almost 75% of the memory. I am using Intel Corei5 and an 8GB memory. Is there a fix on this? By the way, I noticed this problem after upgrading to Windows 10.

Here is the issue; there is a delay on the action of the computer after I do things. Examples: when I scroll down a page (home page) or the page of an article I opened to read, the page will stop/pause for a couple of seconds then start to scroll once again. When I am typing in my email, I can type and the cursor/words will pause and then finally catch up to my typing. There are also times when I tap on an icon on my favorites bar, and there is a delay for the page to open or tap on the "X" to close out a document and a delay. Very frustrating.

Thanks for any anticipated help, Dean

My browser is Firefox, the OS is Vista, and my connection to the internet is through a Virgin Mobile USB modem (model Huawei E!60E), which is one of three devices that are plugged into a four port USB hub, the other two devices being my wireless mouse transmitter and a USB memory stick. It works well enough for me, except for the annoying situation posed in my question. After shutting down my computer, on restart Virgin Mobile prompts me rather quickly to connect to the internet. This it then does, and quite swiftly. BUT, if I arouse my PC from sleep mode, not only does it not offer me a prompt (apparently it is not designed to do so, according to Virgin), but also it takes five or six painfully slow attempts to finally make internet connection again which eventually seems to occur as much due to sheer chance as to any identifiable reason. I achieve this by clicking on the connect button of the Virgin prompt screen (which I have to manually activate to appear), and then keep clicking 'connect' and 'cancel' repeatedly until finally success ensues. It would be so much simpler if the condition 'sleep mode' creates with the modem could be avoided, so that I could quickly reconnect again to the internet. The time I save by not shutting down, is more than lost by wasted time trying to reconnect to the internet after 'sleep' I have tried some of the predictable fixes -- namely uninstalling and re-installing Virgin, as well as fiddling around with settings related to "Allowing the computer to turn off this device", but without success. I also note that if I go to 'Computer', the entry that appears for Virgin Mobile describes it as "CD Drive (F:) Virgin Mobile" which, of course, it is not. Would it be possible for some kind person out there to offer me an explanation and some clues as to what best to do? Regards, kevindu

My print drivers are fine, work with all other applications. I was able to print with Firefox under Win 7, since I upgraded to Win 10, every print request results in a freeze and the message that Firefox is not responding. I reset the print function in Firefox per the article mentioned in the print problem trouble-shooting tips, it did nothing to resolve this problem. Please help.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 last month, I am now having a problem with Firefox after resuming from sleep on my laptop. If Firefox was already open when the laptop goes into sleep mode, upon resume the Firefox UI (both web sites and the app itself) has display issues, where about half of the display is missing (e.g. text, graphics, menus, etc.). This happens only with Firefox, and not with other apps. I need to exit and restart Firefox to clear the problem. This doesn't always happen... it's probably 50/50. Doesn't seem to matter how many tabs are open in Firefox. Also, length of time in sleep mode doesn't seem to matter.

Laptop is a Toshiba L75D-A7283 with AMD Radeon HD 8330 display.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. T.O.

After my homepage is up and I enter a link either through bookmarks or other the blue circle starts, message appears in blue band at top saying "Mozilla Firefox is not responding". I have a hard time trying to get out but then a drop down box appears asking if I want to close or wait. I choose close and it will close. Then if I try again I need to do a restore. Even when I do that the same thing happens again.

How can I fix?
