I would like the "old Coke" back.

I upgraded Firefox on both of my computers and now it is slow. Just typing this is taking longer than it should. I'm typing along and it falls behind at least 3-4 words before it catches up. Changing pages on a website is very slow. I found the suggestion to 'refresh', did that and no difference. Firefox was my favorite and go to browser. I'd like to add some images but I can't capture how slow it is typing this or trying to navigate thru some of my favorite sites. Trying to check my email on Buckeye Express.com took so long, as it took so much longer to load each email and then waiting to save it or trash it. Navigating your own support pages is frustrating waiting for it to change pages.

I want the 'old Coke' back.

I have just installed Firefox 57 (Quantum) 64 bit on my PC and my Laptop (both Windows 10 (1709)).

On both my machines, Quantum displays pages appallingly slowly and often freezes, when no tabs or the settings menu can be selected and nothing else produces a response.

I cannot believe that this software has been properly tested on users' machines at their homes - its deficiencies would have been blindingly obvious. Their is clearly a huge problem here.

I was so looking forward to returning to Firefox but it is a complete disaster.

Please find a fix soon or I will have to uninstall Firefox, maybe permanently. It is useless to me in its present state.

Just updated Firefox to Firefox Quantum 57.0. Everything freezes or stalls. For example, right now I can only type a few characters at a time and have to wait. Web pages load fine, but I can't scroll. I have to wait for the cursor to turn from a hand into the arrow. I had not issues before updating. This is driving me insane. I am using Chrome until this gets fixed. PLEASE help!!1

Click & wait & wait & wait. Same with keyboard page down or any attempts to move around a page or using links. Sometimes arrow down works quickly for a couple of clicks and then it's wait. If you click 3 times or so it scrolls quickly to the bottom of the page. Typing characters is so slow I tend to “over-type” & then wait for backspace to work. Forget trying to highlight/select anything.

I am running Windows 10 with latest update on a 64 bit machine. And have tried all of the suggested solutions including running in Safe Mode, Refresh, and uninstall/reinstall. Nothing affects the problem.

Scrolling in the latest update (version 57) is very erratic. When the mouse wheel is moved, sometimes the window scrolls and sometimes there is a significant delay before the scroll begins. it is very frustrating . Also, typing has the same type of erratic behavior. I restored the previous version and in spite of changing updates to not be automatic Firefox still updated. I'm very unhappy with this latest update; does anyone have any suggestions?

Ever since I updated to Firefox 57, opening a new tab has caused my entire desktop to lag out, stopping me from all navigation and freezing Firefox for 5-30 seconds. This doesn't happen when I'm opening one of my bookmarks in a new tab, or even any link with content on it - it's exclusively when I open a new blank tab. I've tried disabling all of the content on the new tab page, but the problem still persists. As it is now, I've started opening a new Facebook tab before doing what I want because it's quicker and less destructive!

I'm running an i7 with 16Gb of RAM, so my computer isn't the problem - indeed, I didn't have this problem with the previous version of Firefox either. I've tried refreshing the install but the problem persists. Any ideas?

I had been using regular firefox, and with the add-ons I had for saving photos and movies, my browsing experience was basically perfect on my Surface Pro 4. Now Quantum comes and the touchscreen is terrible to use. It seems to randomly be interacting with the sites, it will click things when I do not mean to click them, and holding to use the context menu barely works. Everything used to be usable with a finger, but I frequently find myself having to use the stylus to even get it to recognize input at all.

There does not seem to be any way that I see to calibrate this to make it better.

Firefox recently updated to a sleek new look with claims of being one of the fastest browsers out there. I was not disappointed until I started trying to use more than one tab at a time.

Main problem: Opening a new tab consistently freezes Firefox Quantum for 5-10 seconds. Additional problem: Switching between open tabs and a "new tab" also freezes FF for 2-5 seconds.

Attempted solutions: - Firefox refresh - Profile reset - Disable/enable hardware acceleration - Firefox Safe Mode - Full uninstall/reinstall - Change New Tab settings to display only an empty page - Update display drivers - Install Shockwave Flash

None of these seem to have helped, and there are already a few reports about very similar issues with this latest update. Hope for a quick resolution, as FF was always my go-to browser.

Hi,

Last night when I turned on my laptop, Firefox automatically updated itself. Immediately, it was very, very slow, then stalled, and crashed. I reopened it a couple more times, but still the same. At one point, it locked up my computer. I restarted it with add-ons disabled, but that didn't help. I've also refreshed it, and that too didn't work. I've used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem like this. My OS is Windows 10 (64-bit) and the rest of the computer is working fine.

Thanks!
