Firefox has become very slow. It takes a lot of time to load any website. I reinstalled FF but the rest of the problem.
As a test, I downloaded Chrome and it is much faster.
But I love FF and would be very happy if you can help me solve this problem.

Hi Reos,

When you reinstall Firefox it always uses your old profile with all the old things that you had. That said, you're lucky, there is a new feature that lets you "Reset" of Firefox. This will remove some of the pieces that might cause problems while it keeps your bookmarks and other important things safe.

  • I downloaded 8.1 on my iPad a few months ago and it has become very slow especially in the e-mail program and glitch

    I have an iPad mini version 9.02. a few months ago, I downloaded the latest operating system from Apple 8.1 and my iPad became very slow and glitchy especially in the e-mail software... What can I do?  Now it asks me to upgrade to iOS 9.1 and I fear that it will be even worse.

    Sorry - but what do you mean you have an iPad Mini version 9.02? What are your reference when citing 9.02?

    At this point, your best bet is to keep the device up to date. The latest version of iOS is 9.2. It's what you could be upgraded to.

  • Why youtube videos do not take a lot of time to load


    Please explain why some clips (on You Tube) that run a few minutes long can take ages (10-15 minutes) to load while others as long are ready for display in a minute or two.  My laptop speed is up to 54 Mbps and the intensity of the signal very good to excellent.

    Thank you very much.

    Three possibilities, I see...

    (1) your internet connection speed can be much slower
    as you thought. Have you checked the connection speed
    at the dax1792 site posted online?

    (2) you can be located a long way from the server.

    (3) there may be a very high on the site or the net traffic
    congestion at the peak hours of the day.

    As for the different load from one clip to another time...
    I can only guess what would be the difference in the way in which the
    video has been encoded. Some are of much better quality than

    FWIW... my connection speed average somewhere around
    20 Mbps and YouTube video clips play instantly for me.

    Download the clips to your hard disk and viewing

  • Icon 'Work' really takes a lot of time to load. What he does?

    When I double-click on the icon "Computer" on the desktop, it will sometimes pop open the window with no. Summary and then sat there for 30 seconds with the mouse icon "spinning wheel". How can I tell what he does so that I can make this break disappear?

    When you open windows 'computer' questions all your disks (including removable disks) for things like the ability of the HD, icons, and mapped network drives. You probably have some sort of removable media (CDs, for example) or a mapped network drive that is slowing down the voting process. Take all the cd from the computer, disable the mapped network drives and remove external hard drives or computer flash drives and see if you get an acceleration of loading.

  • Firefox has becomes slow and unresponsive after that I tried to install the addons (not installed)?

    I recently format my computer and reinstall windows 7, since it was the only way I know of to solve the problem with Firefox (I already had this problem too). I download the latest version of firefox 33.0.2 and install it. This version was super fast. But becomes slow and unresponsive when I tried to install the Add-ons. I visited the official site of firefox and searching for addons, when I tried to install addons, Firefox crashed. Therefore, it has becomes quite slow and cannot restore previous sessions. Even to type my email address, it takes more than 5 minutes and reacts more frequently (after typing each letter).
    I want to know if this is due to some viruses, or this version of firefox is not "stable".

    Hey there,

    We are sorry to hear that Firefox crashes. To better help you, please follow the steps below to provide us with crash IDs to help us learn more about your accident.

    1. Enter Subject: hangs in the Firefox address bar and press ENTER. A list of submitted Crash reports will appear, similar to the one shown below.
    2. Copy the 5 most recent report ID begins with bp - and then back to your forum question but that stick in the box of "Post a response. (Please do not take a screenshot of your plant, just copy and paste the ID image below is just an example of what your Firefox screen should look like)

    Once you have done so, you could try the Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    I hope this helps!
