Firefox within the last month has started freezing every time on a Windows 7 laptop every time I try one of the above actions. I have tried "refresh Firefox", safe mode, uninstall/reinstall, nothing seems to help. Can't open prefs so I have not been able to turn off hardware acceleration. However, I was able to set up Firefox Sync which let me get my bookmarks to another PC and it looks like make setting changes on that PC affects this copy of FF so I <think> I've also tried turning off hardware acceleration. Nothing works. Especially frustrating that the options freeze. Firefox has worked for years on the affected laptop, is there anything I can do except give up and switch to another browser?

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.

On W 8.1 with all latest OS updates. Firefox all latest, 36.0

Video of problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SqlTmIvcoLc

The only options I have in my modem/router's Compal-ch7486e-70684 (CH) setting is QoS, which I have turned on since months ago.

Chrome experiences the same problem.

After having switched to startech usb 3.0 adapter the slowness went away (about 2 months ago). I concluded that my CPU is poor and the adapter now did some of the computing power. But then the slowness came back

www.startech.com%2FNetworking-IO%2FAdapter-Cards%2FUSB-3-to-Gigabit-Ethernet-NIC-Network-Adapter%7EUSB31000S

From my log:

Maybe 1-2 months ago Was connected to my WIFI (DLINK DAP-1522 connected to CH). Google calendar took a really long time to load. Switchted to my Samsung S3's hotspot. Gcal was quick to load. Then switched back to WIFI and it was as quick. On the other hand making a Facebook post took a really long time to load via WIFI but was quick via the hotspot.

If I have the slowness, and detach-attach network cable the slowness is gone.

22 Mars 2015 Closed almost all processes, it did not help Disabled all firefox addons. This made problem go away.

But now it's back again.

On the 22th of Mars I removed cookies in Firefox. It's the same on WIFI as corded. Power options are set to high performance.

I restarted Firefox in Safe Mode and everything worked fine.

I am trying to find out which add-on is causing the problem. After I disabled all of them and restarted the program the problem occurred again.

How do I fix this?

PS. With "freeze" I mean that it doesn't respond for a while. After 10 secs it's fine again.

I have a new HP Intel Core2duo computer that has 4 gigs of ram with Windows 7 64bit and the video card reads Quatro 1500FX. While typing anywhere on the net (search bars, forms, logins, emails...etc) it will hang for a minute or two and then slowly add each letter that was typed. This causes the screen to freeze until it's done. It's incredibly annoying. It looks like it only happens in Firefox, I've reset Firefox but it hasn't helped. I tested in IE and it seems fine. I prefer using Firefox though. No malware or viruses found either as my computer is still new. Doesn't happen offline at all, I usually have to write in notepad first and copy & paste into whatever I'm doing online to avoid the problem. This happened on my other computer too, exact same machine except that one has 7 gigs of ram but when I deleted an add-on and reinstalled it, it seemed to do the trick. Things I've already tried for this computer are...

-Complete system scan for adware and malware -Resetting Firefox -Uninstalling Firefox and re-installing -Clearing cache and cookies -Un-checking "use hardware acceleration" in the options menu -Disabling all add-ons and plugins

I know it's a Firefox issue because every other browser works just fine. I've posed on numerous forums and no one knows what to do about it. Any help/suggestions would be highly appreciated, thanks.

This feels slow as molasses, especially when working with many tabs. It happens :

- On already loaded tabs (so you'd think just clicking on them would bring them to the forefront immediately).

- On a fresh install (a few weeks old).

- With no bookmarks at all.

- On a profile with only 6 extensions, including Tab Mix Plus.

- On a virgin default profile just out of install, with nothing else added.

I've tried to disable the real-time shields of my Avast Free anti-virus, to no avail. Note : I've moved my profiles out of %AppData%, but I don't suppose this is relevant.

I come from Opera (legacy version), which does not have that delay. Is this to be expected on Firefox ?

As an aside, long startup times seem to be the norm (9 to 16 seconds, in my case), and I'm not even sure this includes the Profile Manager startup time. I used to live in a world where launching a browser was immediate.

Hi everyone

I've been struggling with a Firefox (v52.6) sluggishness problem for several months, and since in the meantime I tried all fixes I could find suggested in these pages, I thought to try and seek help in the forums.

Firefox is still usable, but resource-intensive pages (e.g. Facebook, Google Maps) are slow to respond, and often freeze the Firefox window (the no-response mouse cursor) for a few seconds. Meanwhile, the same pages (and the same amount of total load, i.e. open tabs) in Chrome produce normal performance, which suggests the sluggishness is a problem with Firefox rather than a performance issue with my PC, which is of decent specs (8GB RAM, i7 CPU).

Typically, Firefox becomes more sluggish the more it's been without a restart, and the memory resources it uses seem to grow proportionately. However, even when it's only using a few hundreds MB (after a restart), it's still quite sluggish, while Chrome, with a similar amount of memory used, is just fine. Likewise, when after a while the RAM consumed by Firefox/Chrome goes up to >1GB (not sure if this is in itself normal or not!), while Firefox is crawling, Chrome is still fast.

What I tried, which did not fix Firefox's sluggishness (or only did so for a short while):

- disable extensions one by one, and even all at once

- disable all plugins

- start Firefox in safe mode

- ultimately, I used the refresh function, and immediately afterwards Firefox seemed to be as fast as Chrome. I subsequently reinstalled all my addons (which include ABP, Zotero Connector, Classic Theme Restorer, NoScript) and settings. The next day, it seems my joy was shortlived, as Firefox is back to its usual sluggishness.


I would not want to migrate to Chrome unless I really cannot find a fix for this problem. Can anyone suggest more things I can try?

Thanks so much for any help.

I've noticed this over the past several versions of Firefox for OS X, and under Mavericks as well as Yosemite, on 2 different Macs of Mine: a 2009 Mac Pro and a 2012 Mac Book Pro.

The issues are: sometimes Firefox will not create a new tab or window when I press those keyboard commands, and sometimes, I am unable to type into form fields. Restarting Firefox will remedy the problem, until it happens again.

Otherwise, I find Firefox to be a great browser! Thank you for producing it.

Firefox is very slow to bring up pages (30 seconds minimum) while IE and Chrome are normal.

When I close FF, the firefox.exe process doesnt' close for 3 to 5 minutes ad then I get a "Firefox crashed" message.

I'm seeing this on a ton of machines (7 and Vista).

Hi all, I'm using a MSI GF62-7RD laptop running Windows 10 64-bit, latest Firefox version (59.0.2 64-bit). For the last few weeks Firefox on my laptop has been taking years to load almost all web pages, while Internet Explorer on those same occasions was able to load the same pages in good time. The annoying thing is that Firefox on my desktop (Windows 7) is not similarly afflicted. And to make matters even stranger, my laptop when using other internet connections (at friends' houses etc.) is able to use Firefox without the speed issues I get at home.

This problem was also present intermittently on my last laptop (also MSI with the same OS), but now it seems to be a permanent state of affairs. I have variously in the past tried disabling accessibility services, refreshing Firefox, and doing a complete re-install (including deleting all Mozilla folders in the user's Appdata folder). Nothing seems to help....

When attempting to open links in a new tab with the middle mouse button (MMB), Firefox freezes for a few seconds before going on with loading the webpage. Occasionally this happens also when searching for something through the address bar. Following suggestions on similar topics on the forums, I tried starting Firefox in safe mode, but the problem persists. In fact, after starting in safe mode, an additional problem appeared: after trying to re-load the tabs from my last session, Firefox froze on each and every one until the page had loaded completely. To emphasize and make the problems as clear as possible:

-Firefox freezes for a second or two when opening ordinary web links in a new tab.

-Firefox freezes for a second or two when searching something through the address bar.

-After starting Firefox in safe mode, opening links freezes Firefox until the webpage is completely loaded.
