I have been experiencing frequent slowness while using Firefox.

  • Clicking links causes loading for a long time, but doesn't open the page when the load finishes. It stays on the same page, requiring me to click the link a second time to make it work. Sometimes loading never finishes at all.
  • Videos on Youtube require frequent buffering, with videos I used to be able to watch in one sitting now pausing to load every few minutes or automatically dropping in quality.
  • Images and thumbnails occassionally don't display or only partially load.

I have had this problem before, and it usually goes away after a few days, but it has been happening more frequently lately. The last time I asked on this forum, someone suggested making a new profile, but the last time I tried that, it did not solve the problem. I have briefly tried using Chrome instead and noticed some of the same issues. Is it possible the problem is with my computer instead? My McAfee virus scan has not found any problems.

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

My bookmarks and history are gone. There is a red banner across the top, which reads, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." No matter what I do, I can't seem to get either fixed.

With Firefox 68.12.0esr and 78.3.1esr I can get to outlook.com. I cannot sign in. Browser responds per attachment.

I've tried;

  • No A/V products running or even installed
  • Renamed Hosts file
  • Rebooted PC
  • Set content blocking to standard
  • Disabled in turn each of url filters, keyword filters and network services filters on my router
  • Run Firefox in safe mode

Windows 10 1809 LTSC. We use only Firefox. No other browsers installed.

Why might only this particular website of all the we use have this problem?

hi, As this thread indicates it is necessary to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config. Unfortunately it has no effect and cache is store in profile in AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/{profile} directory on windows. I used that feature in the past and it worked. Is this feature removed or is there a bug?
