I have used Firefox for several years and have been very happy with it. However, in the last few/several weeks, I am finding that when I click on a link to go to another screen, it either takes forever or does not work at all.

What steps should I take to help with this problem? I am using Firefox 78.0.2 (64Bit).

A month to a few weeks ago Firefox started being laggy when switching tabs; also Facebook and Facebook Messenger; on Board Game Arena and also on Discord desktop app (using Electron/chromium) typing was getting laggy. I thought it might be hardware so I tested the memory with memtest86 but that passed. I also tried safe mode on Firefox but that made no difference.

So I reimaged my HD to a known good copy from December 2019 and then also recently to 2018 and updated to latest version of Windows 10. All seemed well but recently again Firefox has gotten laggy. Even typing in here it occassionally hangs.

I've attached a Firefox Profiler link https://share.firefox.dev/2Zlua5o if that helps with me doing moves on https://boardgamearena.com/ website with each move taking several seconds to do.

I have also the profile with more private information if that helps.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

Recently Firefox has become nearly unusable. Opening links are *_sluggish_*... They eventually complete but it's annoying - I've switched back to brave for now. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1175357 seems to be the exact same issue however nothing in the thread resolved my problem.

I'd like to stay with Firefox but it's not worth it at this time. :(

Any thoughts/help are much 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?

This has now happened after the last two Mac updates. I get the TLS handshake forever until it times out. Occasionally something gets through (like the Mozilla help pages!) Unlike others who have posted this issue, the same problem holds in Chrome and Safari. I have tried various fixes, including a new identity on my Mac, with no success. Last time the issue seemed to spontaneously resolve after a couple of hours and never reappeared until Mac updated again. While all this is happening, my email works fine, my husband's macbook pro (just like mine) works fine, and my iPad works fine. I have left this message on the Mac help forum, too, hoping someone will have some idea of what is happening. OS Mojave 10.14.6

When Firefox updates, it's an extremely frustrating experience. Enough so that I'm about ready to switch over to Chrome (I already use it for work). Every single time, websites suddenly can't load and all my extensions stop working. It's happening now! I'm writing this from Chrome.

I'm frankly not sure when or why websites start loading again, but it seems to take about a day for things to get back to normal. I've tried closing and reopening Firefox, but that doesn't seem to do anything. It just takes time. I have a 2017 MacBook, OS Catalina 10.15.3.

Is this a known issue? I see all kinds of possible solutions when I try and look for some myself, but oftentimes the OP says they didn't work and then people offer other solutions. I'm wondering why this seems to happen, and if there's a suggestion for how to fix it once and for all—I've never had this problem with Chrome.

After starting Firefox, Sync starts and gets stuck on "Syncing" till I restart. Ever page shows as bookmarked for a while and then they all turn into not bookmarked. Backups won't be saved. Changes to bookmarks and adding new ones won't work either. Have tried a new profile, deleting xulstore.json and places.sqlite and have also tried safe-mode and all of them together. The sync is still in a loop. I have about 56000 bookmarks(I know that's a lot!) but it didn't use to take more than a few seconds. And not being able to see the last sync time by hovering really sucks as well btw.

Thought problem was just on MyPoints when viewing videos but occurred yesterday at InBoxDollas while playing a game.

    • 9/15 - Attached is one of the video screens with the website slowing...... In this group Postables - almost all had this come up. Sometimes just froze there & when I refreshed screen this ... website slowing.... came up & I had to StopIt for video to continue. {Often the screen would be Black as attached shows, sometimes black with an x in the middle so I refreshed}**

Last night I deleted History (except for personal.). Opened MyPoints this morning & went to Postables where half or more of the videos had this popup line stating Website slowing...... & I had to keep clicking on StopIt. I went to the video in image I added but the 2nd from there had this popup - slowing website.... So I guess deleting history helped some perhaps - but is still there. {Searched last night & all the ideas/thoughts listed to stop this went back to 2016. Before deleting History, I went to registry & searched for Firefox Pioneer and also Shockware - None were found.

Hello all,

I am using Windows 10 64-bit. I have Firefox version 66.0.1

Everytime I open Firefox, after about 20-30 seconds, the application hangs. I get the "Not Responding" message in the menu bar, and the cursor pointer changes to a spinning blue circle.

The application hangs usually for up to 2 mins before returning to normal. It then always works perfectly for the rest of the browsing session. I've tried closing in Task Manager and relaunching, but the same thing happens.

Has anyone solved this issue?

Thanks

Despite downloading and installing several "fixes" to the slow running of Firefox I can't believe that it is running so slowly.

Firefox is painfully slow, so much so that 8 times out of ten the page times out and fails to load.

This is completely unacceptable. Firefox has been my browser of choice for about 15 years, but unless Mozilla finds a PROPER fix to this issue I will be changing my default browser to Chrome.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

My OS is Windows 10.
