Firefox slows down when opening a site with animated gifs

After FF4 update, I find that whenever I try to open a page that has several on this animated gifs, firefox slows down a lot. The CPU usage goes up to 50-75% and all animated gifs are moving really slow.

It is not only large animated gifs, but it occurs also on the forums that have animated smileys. I never had this problem in FF 3.6 neither another browser (IE, Chrome, Safari). If I start FF4.0 without modules or plugins it does the same thing. Even with a new facility. Does anyone have a solution to his problem? Since I can't use some of my favorite now with FF sites, without my pc slow everything down.

Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the Add-ons is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Modules > themes).

  • Makes no changes on the start safe mode window.

Safe mode disables extensions in Firefox 4, and disables hardware acceleration.

  • Tools > Options > advanced > General > Browsing: "use hardware acceleration when available.

  • Firefox slows down for several minutes, as if (possibly), it seems "reoganise".


    Every once in a while, Firefox slows down a lot, the use of the CPU (for Firefox) exceeds to 95pct and there is a lot of drive actuvuty. Then after a minute or so, it starts again to normal.

    What does Firefox do? Is this normal/expected behavior? 'Help' Firefox if it needs to have something cleaned?

    I use Archlinux.

    Thank you


    Some quick ideas (in the order that I would try them):

    • Clear your cache. It is possible that some of your cache files are corrupt and Firefox chokes on them.
    • Try to disable the Flash plugin. My experience with Flash on Linux has been less than stellar, and I would not be surprised if it causes problems. If it turns out that the Flash is the issue, you should try grabbing the newest alpha/beta 10.2 and see if that fixes it.
    • Try to open Firefox in safe mode. Which will disable your extensions and many custom settings.
    • Try to start a new profile (be sure to keep the old). There could be something wrong with your current profile (which contains all user-specific data).

    It will obviously be a pain to test if it happens only once a day or two, but that's all I can think about. Best of luck, it attaches, and with a little luck, someone else will have a more specific patch.

  • Firefox slows down to a crawl while the sync of bookmarks

    Whenever I add, modify, move, or delete a bookmark, Firefox slows down to a crawl for a few seconds, whereas Sync does its thing. I know that Sync is the question because I added the sync icon to the toolbar and see it light up and spin and Firefox is unusable whenever I have change a bookmark. This is probably because I have a ridiculous number of bookmarks: probably in the range of 10-20 000.

    Despite these problems, Sync did a good job of synchronizing bookmarks between my computer and makes it easier for me to finish my work, so I would like to continue using it. My bookmarks file acts as a search engine mini for the things that I found useful/interesting. deletion of bookmarks or using a very stripped down bookmarks file really does not solve my problem here.

    I already googled until exhaustion, and set services.sync.autoconnect to false in: config, but that didn't seem to do anything. This solution might work but is not very handy:

    Is it possible I can turn off Auto-Sync synchronization after each change bookmark? I'd like to be able to synchronize ONLY when I click the 'Sync' button in my toolbar in FF.

    Sync chooses when synchronize based on a combination of the last hour of synchronization and the amount of change that has occurred. You can actually turn off the synchronization (except you can still manually synchronize) by changing these values.

    1. go into "subject: config.

    2. Enter "services.sync.syncInterval" in the search box. It's the amount of time (in 1/1000 of a second) that synchronize waits between synchronizations. If you want to sync never synchronize after a while, change for something big like '999999999999999999999999 '.

    3. Enter "services.sync.syncThreshold" in the search box. It is the amount of change that must take place between synchronizations. 300 represents a bookmark and is also the default, so by default, sync will sync whenever you add a bookmark. If you want to synchronize only after 2 bookmarks, change it to 600, etc.. If you want to never synchronize, also change it for a very large number.

    Note: there is always a possibility sync may synchronize automatically some time, but it is extremely rare.

  • When I open too many windows, Firefox slows down

    I use Firefox for ever and I am currently using Windows 7 64 bit. As far as I know, that nothing has changed on my end, but Firefox started running slowly after opening the windows of. How I usually use the program and have done for years, is to open pages in a lot of different windows and close them as needed. This does usually cause no problems and I can leave the program running for days at a time, works perfectly well.

    Last week however, something changed. Now when Firefox starts up first, it works very well, as expected, but then after a period of time, usually in a day, sometimes within a few hours, it starts sensational "gunked upward." At this point, when I try to load a page in a new window, instead of load instantly, there a second or two, during which I can not move to any other Firefox window, but all other running programs work very well. This State continues and grows slower and slower to load new pages, until I closed and reopened Firefox, then the cycle repeats.

    Again, this is a new situation, my normal behavior would not normally cause this kind of slowdown even after a week or more of continuous service. I ran a control of viruses and malware, without success control on either and other programs are not affected. I tried to restart as well, but the problem came back shortly after. I also turned off most of my modules, including those that have worked well for months or years, and still no change, it slogs always down after some time. My Firefox is also currently up-to-date, of course (27.0.1).

    What is going on?

    OK, I put some time in troubleshooting and think that I thought about it. After going in and out of safe mode several times, I reduced to a problem with Adblock Plus. With him in the distance, I could open a ton of windows, with it on this subject would begin to slow. A quick workaround solution was that if I went in the menu of the Addon whenever he began to slow down and disabled Adblock and transformed then turn it back on, it would reset the downturn, but I went to their own support site and came across people with the same problem solved by picking up a beta version of the addon. Since the installation, I got no problems.

  • Need with Photoshop CS6 13.0 slow down when you use MANY fonts.


    I have problems with my installation of Photoshop CS6 extended 13.0. I have a large collection of fonts (more than 9000 - no joke) and Photoshop slows down bad whenever I do something that requires the use of the fonts/typing/text handling. I tried to disable the font previews. Photoshop is still too slow. I found a related thread and have additional questions about my situation:

    • Is there a way to mitigate the slowdown in Photoshop when something related to fonts?
    • Will be updated to the latest version of CS6 help? I should even try to update?
    • I have to reduce the number of fonts activated? If so, what is a good number to aim for?
    • Any advice on the management of fonts? The thread mentions Typekit - I do not have a full subscription to CC. Other tools of management of good police (preferably free) that you can recommend?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    9000 fonts?  How many people have you used last year?

    Not really sure what to tell you. Using a lot of fonts is a serious drain on system resources.  How long does Photoshop take to open?  Some time I think.

    TypeKit used to be a wonderful resource, but it has become very limited, if you only plan to photograph, and it would do precisely nothing to the management of your 9000 fonts.  Not a garbage.

    I used TypeDNA for awhile and well liked.

    OK, so here is the problem I have do this output pid controller is between 0-100 in this program, I'm just trying to make it work so I made a function to compare that when the controller output is 0 and the constant 0 I'm starting a business loop which transform the output for a second and turn off for a second.   When I go into the structure of the case, the rest of my program slows down

    I don't know why, I tried to do a while loop and a structure outside my main loop but I can't get my signal of my statement to compare to enter the second loop where I get my output to bike in 1 second intervals

    This is the VI please help

    I'm still learning how to use labview in passing

    Thank you



    The next thing you want to learn more about LabVIEW dataflow. This is the fundamental paradigm of LV and explain your slowdown problems.

    The basic concept of data flow is any node (node = function, Subvi, structure) can begin to run when the data is present on all its entries and no data will be present at its outputs to execution comopletes of knot.

    How will this affect your VI? The real deal has a wait 1000 ms (actually two, one in each case of the internal structure of the housing = redundant code). The structure of the case will not complete execution until the wait ends. And the while loop does not complete its repetition until the end of the structure of the case. The result: at the exit of the = 0, the loop runs at 1 second per iteration.

    What is the solution? Continue execution of the loop at intervals of 100 ms. sure in the structure of matter (true case) and another register to shift of how number of intervals of 100 ms is passed. When the count reaches ten, toggle the output line.  Do not use the 1000 ms of waiting.

    All the code in your internal structure is not necessary. Connect the output remains directly to the digital Arduino write VI.

    Be careful with the comparison to zero with floating point data. If the calculation which produces data has round off errors you could get a value such as 0.573E - 15, but which is not equal to zero. It is better to compare to a small range of values above and below zero.

    Right to left wiring is much easier to follow in trying to understand what makes a program. Using the tool to clean occasionally will help (although he eventually frustrate you also).

  • Mini 210.1155DX slows down when charging

    Hi all

    I have a Mini for 18 months, 210.1155DX. It had worked fine until recently, when he slowed down incredibly, he came to the point where I can't use it when it's charging as it slows down and freezes so. Generally when it is running only on battery power, it is ok, but sometimes there are problems with Skype, etc., with voices sounding robotic that it runs very slowly.

    I took it to different COMPUTER technicians and they are all confused. I hope someone can help!

    Hello, to start things out of what are your power options on? If you look under control panel, power options and check to see if it is set to high performance. Also, I included a link to the documentation which may be useful.

  • Solution to improve performance (to increase speed) when opening PDF files with large 3d model?

    I insert a large .u3d model of construction in PDF file (more), very slow when opening it (more than 30 minutes). Is it possible to improve it during the creation of the PDF file? It is acceptable to reduce the precision of the model shape/color/texture when inserting in the PDF. I think that my hardware is OK, THINKPAD 520 with 8G of RAM. It's urgent for me. For solutions or clues, please let me know.

    Thank you and best regards.


    No direct experience of Okino but you won't find many people who say that their PolyTrans is a powerful tool. However, I have tested all other applications that I mentioned in my previous answer by a remark: If you aim to simplify the mesh, they are all extremely complex. Perhaps, the only suitable for the layman is Rhino rhinoceros - downloads; it provides an export utility where users can select several options to reduce the number of nodes. Also look at the script environment: I could quite easily find a way to generate scripts in Blender and MeshLab to process a batch of files without the GUI, but I didn't do it with Rhino, but I see it has script capabilities Rhinoceros - overview and Developer: rhinoscript [McNeel Wiki]
