Thread: Firefox slow?

  1. #1

    Default Firefox slow?

    All,
    For some reason Firefox loads pages really slow on my 11.3 install. Chrome everything loads fast. I am running the latest of firefox.

    I have done the usual tweaks to the about:config that I found on the internet. Is there a reason for this and can I fix it?

    If you try a new user login with a non modified .mozilla folder
    Is it slow?

    How many plugins do you have installed? The more plugins that are
    installed, the longer FF takes to start.

    I don't have any plugins at all and this is a fresh install. It opens up just fine, but loading pages seems to be slow.

    Sigh, and I've been a diehard mozilla/firefox fan boy forever for speed and alas it has finally jumped the shark.

    I went through this on 11.4 ff 4.0 and disabling in yast network and a number of other places didn't do anything.

    The about:config did

    Anyway as it wont load my old bookmarks I've switched to opera. Works straight out of the box.
