any suggestions ..
As previously stated, disabling Hardware Acceleration
in Firefox will
alleviate your issue.
If you have further issues after that, an add-on is causing the issue, or a bad Firefox update. Which reinstalling Firefox or creating a new Firefox
profile will alleviate.
I am sorry, that does not work for everybody.
Disabling hardware acceleration works for this
particular issue. If someone is still having problems after that, then an add-on is causing the
problem, or a bad Firefox update, or malware, etc.
There are multiple threads on this problem and no one has yet offered a real solution that works for everyone.
That's because everyone's computers are different. And most everyone doesn't take the time and patience to troubleshoot what the problem is on
Furthermore, this problem does not exist on other browsers. Therefore, it's limited only to Firefox, and the fix was already posted. Any further
problems after the fix is on their
end as previously stated.
FF is laggy. FF runs too much in the background.
On a fresh install of FF, it uses 0% CPU, and around 200-300 MB of memory consistently, all day. That's with ad-block and a couple other add-ons
running as well.
I have noticed that with two other add-ons I use, Firefox does start getting memory leaks and getting laggy. But those are add-on problems, not
FF problems. When I'm not using those particular add-ons, I disable them and FF is back to being perfectly fast and smooth.
I agree to many people just blaming the browser rather than working out what causes the problem.
For this particular issue, it absolutely is the browser. It's been documented in numerous articles (a couple of which I posted in the fix above), and
documented in the thread where the fix is.
Other browsers don't have the issue, Firefox does. Disabling hardware acceleration alleviates the issue. Further issues are on the user's
system or browser.
