Latest update is in place and this thing is SLLLLOOOOWWW.

Replied to a post a minute ago and I had typed half the first sentence before the reply box opened. Chrome is snappy, so I think the issue is actually Firefox. all add-ons inactive aside from Roboform. Any ideas?

Thanks,

RMD

I have one certain game online that I play that would absolutely refuse to load with Firefox and also IE 11, I uninstalled FF and went with Waterfox and it will load but extremely slow and also extremely slow on Chrome. I know part of my problems are my computer but the browsers also have their share of problems.

I agree. they are no loading them up with all sorts of code that apparently slows them to a crawl.

Thanks,

I'm on version 56.0.2 (64-bit) and it's running fine.

I'm running Firefox ESR v52.4 (Extended Support Release). I made the switch to ESR ten months ago and I haven't looked back. And I no longer have any complaints re: browser performance! Cool

Here's the deal from the Firefox ESR webpage:

Who is it for?

Firefox ESR is intended for groups who deploy and maintain the desktop environment in large organizations such as universities and other schools, county or city governments and businesses.

Who is it NOT for?

Individual users who always want the latest features, performance enhancements and technologies in their browser without waiting for them to become available in ESR several development cycles later.

As the webpage indicates Firefox ESR is for large enterprise deployments, where the IT departments typically want a stable consistent platform across all machines they manage. Sounded perfect to me....I'm a Power User and don't want Windows (or any software) on my PC(s) doing anything automatically, especially updates! Roll Eyes
Additionally, I was SICK and TIRED of weekly browser updates with all the 'latest features' anyway, which tended to load my machine(s) down. When Firefox dropped support for 'All NPAPI Plugins' in Firefox 52, I was done!

Enter Firefox ESR, which gets security updates as needed (actually not that frequently), and runs like a top!

Firefox is available for Windows and Linux (both 64-bit and 32-bit versions), as well as macOS....Regardless of your preference, there's a flavor for you

FYI - I run the Windows 64-bit version on multiple machines, and have a legacy 32-bit machine as well. Like I said....NO Issues! Wink

I like Safari on Windows but since they have stopped supporting it, I'm a bit nervous using it on windows based machines.

I find that Safari on an MacBook Pro is very laggy now and has been for about two months.

It also tends to lock up.

Make sure you get an Ad Blocker Add-on, if you don't already run one. Two popular Ad Blockers of note are 'uBlock Origin' and 'AdBlocker Ultimate'. There have been a few threads here on the subject.

I run 'Adguard AdBlocker', in part because I like the interface and it's simple/easy to configure. It's also VERY effective! And, I don't see ANY annoyances from Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) littering every web page I visit either!

Regardless of which you choose, they will help minimize page load times, and decrease CPU load and memory usage. Ultimately they will help keep your browsing experience from getting SLLLLOOOOWWWED down! Wink
