    Firefox always slow and lagging.

    Hi, am using Windows 10 Pro X64 official and Mozilla Firefox.

    For some reason my Firefox browser is always lagging.
    Chrome works fine though.

    When I open a new tab, the browser starts lagging, when I open multiple tabs it's lagging a lot.
    Click a link -> Start lagging.

    Why is this happening? Had the same thing on Windows 7 but the lags seems more in Windows 10.
    How do I go about fixing this issue?

    Most Firefox problems originate in the user's profile, regardless of the version of the Windows OS.

    For starters, I suggest trying the standard troubleshooting here:
    Standard Diagnostic - Firefox

    Or you might try the suggestions here:
    Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems

    Please post back and let us know how it goes.
