    Based on what I am seeing here, as well as my own personal experience, 3GB RAM is plenty to run W10 and should not affect Firefox adversely. A 2GHz processor is also above the minimum requirements.

    right. 3 gb is enough. And it is well known that you don't need a fancy processor just to run a browser. @Petra, you should check if antivirus is conflicting with browser, this is done by exiting antivirus and then testing the browser.

    Exactly! Thanks for providing the reference.
    Folks run Fx under XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1, on far less robust hardware than the OP reports.
    It seems unlikely that the OP's hardware specs fully explain the somewhat vague complaint of Fx "slowness".

    That's why I suggested that the OP proceed with some routine Fx troubleshooting/diagnostics and with your suggestions, @simrick, to consider the possibility of screening for/removing adware/junkware/malware.
    @petra9999: can you please tell us more about the notifications you are getting? And perhaps try some of the routine troubleshooting steps recommended in the tutorials provided in my previous reply?

    If all else fails, we may need to collect some basic diagnostic logs, in order to better understand and fix the problem.

    Cheers,
    MM

    If its the same as for FF, then I think I may understand. Firefox was running really slow, taking time to load pages etc. I deleted it (again) and defaulted to chrome, much faster.

    Just for grins, remove Adobe Flash player, and reboot. Is it better?
