I noticed a few months back that Firefox quantum 65.0.2 (64 bit) uploads are extremely slow. A 186kb image that is uploaded instantly in Chrome or Firefox developer edition (65.0b11 64 bit) takes about 30-45 seconds in quantum, a 900kb image jumps to 14% when I hit upload, then super slowly climbs up by 2%-4% at a time, finally finishing the upload 3 minutes later, and by the time the upload finishes the google captcha I entered has expired and it tells me to retry the upload. The same 900kb image uploads in 2 seconds on chrome and firefox dev. Also some websites like twitch.tv are super slow to load, not even a video stream, the homepage takes about 20 seconds to load, then another 30 seconds for the video to start playing, while the site loads and starts playing the homepage video within a few seconds on chrome and firefox dev. I've tried everything, launching firefox in safe mode, reinstalling firefox and trying with no plugins, switching between system proxy settings and no proxy. Is there anything else I can try? Super annoying having to launch chrome every time I need to upload something.

Thanks

Firefox used to be a GREAT tool. Now, it is LESS than great. Firefox previously would load a web page in very short order (never really timed it) but it was in seconds. NOW it is more like MINUTES and that is just when it starts to indicate the page is STARTING to show itself on the screen. Has YAHOO insert itself into your programming?

Beginning with Firefox 58, I haven't been able to use it for more than 5 minutes as it constantly crashes. There is no crash report to speak of, only the 'Restore tabs' option.

I tried all the guides I could find: - restarted with all addons disabled - fully wiped any installations and downloaded a new version - I am running Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1 (18B75) (lastest version) - about:crashes does not list any reports

I am forced to use other browsers because of these crashes, which is unfortunate. I also use Firefox on Windows 10 and I've never seen it crash. I also recall it crashing on High Sierra as well, so the Mojave upgrade wasn't the source.

Can anyone help me out with debugging this issue as I simply cannot solve it by myself and I've exhausted all the official guides as well as other topics.

Thank you.

Firefox update 63.0.1 is "super" slow. Nothing in the fix suggestions works.

This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.

I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.

Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.

All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.

At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.

Thanks.

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox Quantum this has happened: Whenever i'm on a YouTube page where the sidebar (where you see Subcriptions, Saved/Your Playlists, etc.) it always makes Firefox Quantum freeze and say "A webpage is slowing down your browser."

Clicking "Wait" does nothing and just makes the error pop up again after a few seconds. I have to click "Stop It" to make it fully load. This doesn't seem to happen on a video page as, for me, the sidebar isn't shown when I'm on a video page.

Is there any reason it is doing this? YouTube worked fine before I upgraded to Quantum, and now it seems like YouTube doesn't want to work with Quantum correctly?

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit.

In recent weeks on 2 different PC'a (both W10 64bit) - Firefox has become slow to start up.

Previously click on start bar - seconds later FF would open followed by a delay Google then open as home page.

Now click on start bar - nothing .... can be 10sec or more before anything starts ...... often you even think that maybe you missed the button ..... this is very noticeable recent change - has an update caused this ..... my builds are up to date.

Firefox Won't do Anything

I had been having problems with firefox since a few months ago. When I opened it, it worked really good, but two or three hours later it got reeeally slow, and when checking the Windows Task Manager it said that Firefox was using about 2.5 RAM GB and I had to restart Firefox. The real problem started when I got sick of the previous issue and tried to fix it. and what kind of fixed that problem was refreshing Firefox (reinstall it didn't worked and I say "kind of fixed it" because only made the problem to take a bit longer).

I was so happy that I got like 5 hours on Firefox but then it got slow again and tried to restart it but... Firefox didn't do anything, just kind of freezd in the start (see image below). In this stage, won't even try to load anything, if I type an address and press enter, it won’t do anything, I can open the menu and open tabs, windows and private windows but all of them are the same. The only way to close firefox is by this menu (the X button in the top right corner doesn’t work). I can’t even load the add-ons page, nor the settings page. I have access to the help menu to refresh firefox but that fixes the problem only for one session (if I close and/or restart firefox, the problem returns).

I tried all what is said here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems but didn’t work or worked just for one session (reinstall, refresh and new profile solutions work for a single session, but the problem with the RAM persists, doesn't even work with safe mode).

I tried the solution given here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1021896 but won’t work not even for a single session. I neeeeeed help! Thanks!

I was using my computer a couple of days ago with no issues, shutdown the computer for the night, then the next day there is a delay for the context menu to show up after right clicking in both Firefox and Thunderbird.

Aside from installing a few updates I have not made any changes to the computer since the day before & I have no issue with context menus in other browsers or the OS.

The hardware a Dell Optiplex 790 with an i5-2400 quad core, 12 Gb ram running Ubuntu 17.04 64bit.

The symptoms:

- The right click context menu takes approx 5 to 8 sec to show up. - Drop down menus on web pages & in settings behave the same. - Occasionally the FF window will darken for a second or two then return to normal. - When an option on the context menu is clicked it is taking about 3 sec to go through.

Fixes tried:

- New Profile. - Safe Mode. - Disabling Hardware Acceleration. - Complete removal of FF & TB as well as their folders. - Downgrading to FF version 50. - Checked on another computer (this one is running Lubuntu, & does not show the issue).

Does anyone have any ideas?
