Firefox running very slowly - if at all.


Recommended Posts

Howard Davis

My OS is Win 7. My Firefox browser has started working slowly, often bouncing around among various data sources for a while before reaching the bookmarked site I selected. There are sometimes long waits for a response from the site once there, and some I just give up on because they are taking so long. Any troubleshooting ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What release of Firefox are you using and what extensions if any do you have installed?

Try running off a different profile

 

start firefox by typing firefox /p in the run box then create a new profile and try running off that and see if a new profile runs better.

The problem was due to a program running in the background, and is now fixed.

Thanks for the advice.

It was Acronis True Image. Due to improper settings, it was trying to send backup data to the "cloud" when it is only intended for an external hard drive.
