Hi,

Has this just happened recently? Have you tried turning off any add-ons to see if there is any difference?

Steve

Please list the troubleshooting steps you have taken thus far.

What changes have you made to your computer of late?

Is the slowness limited to Firefox?

Do you reboot on a regular basis?

Ok but we need more details than that too help get an idea of what your problem is. Can you give details of the questions that were asked in the previous posts by myself and JMH3143 please. Also how old is your computer and what are it's specifications since you say it has been happening since the computer was 'brand new'?

Try removing all the extensions. I Don't use mozilla, but i went through the same thing with chrome, and after i removed all the extensions, all was back to normal. The difference was huge.

You must delete all the history in the Browser and scan your computer once.
