Something has gone seriously wrong with FireFox in the last couple of months. In addition to pages sometimes taking up to, and more than, 10 minutes to load, extensive web searches for answers turn up only unhelpful responses, some referencing pages from Mozilla dated as far back as 2013.
There are a number of heated discussions about this _SERIOUS_ problem on other forums, often making assumptions about malicious motives such as google intentionally throttling access to google apps when they are accessed using firefox.
Just prior to this post, I opened both FireFox and Chrome and clicked the same bookmark for Google Docs in both browsers as simultaneously as possible ...Docs opened in Chrome in less than 5 seconds, but FireFox took over a minute to open the same page.
I use both Windows and Android versions of FireFox and the problem exists on both platforms.
fwiw, I did reset the FF theme back to default and that helped a bit, but I have to observe that FF is currently unusable in it's current state.
I do not want to switch to chrome as I have been using this product since it was originally released as NETSCAPE decades ago, but I feel like I have no choice.
Mozilla leaders, PLEASE acknowledge that there IS a serious problem and work with loyal and experienced users to determine what the problem is and how to address it.
Again P L E A S E !
