Thread: Switching tabs in forefox has big delay!

  1. #1

    Default Switching tabs in forefox has big delay!

    Whenever I switch tabs in firefox, there's a big delay (worse for some sites than others). This didn't use to be the case. Any idea what could be causing it?

    Probably some dodgy extension
    I bet if you rename .mozilla (.mozilla-slowtabs) and re-start FF it may be solved.
    Remember all your settings are in the folder you renamed. If this solves it - we can look at what to do from there.

    No, I started in safe mode and still had the issue.

    Safe mode as nothing to do with it. Do as Caf suggested. Or try a adding a new user account and see if the problem is there also. It is most likely some screwed up configuration file.

    No, I renamed the .mozilla folder and it still occurs.

    Is the isolated to Firefox?
    What about other browsers?

    Were you using FFox from Build Service or from the Updates repo?

    No. I was originally but there was a huge problem with that version (may have been fixed now) that made it unusable so instead I downloaded it directly from mozilla.org.

    But doing that works perfectly on fedora and previously was working fine on opensuse.
