    FF sent me into panic mode couple days ago. I wasn't able to access my online banking or anything from my bank from FF or any other browser, it just kept on complaining about DNS until I changed these settings in FF:

    I have no idea how it prevented any other browsers to connect only to that one place.

    I have been using ublock origin for some time now and the has helped with lag. But I still get a problem with firefox where it basically freezes for 1-2 seconds every now and then after I have been using the browser for some time. I just changed the gfx card and mainboard on my pc so I think the issue is with firefox. If i restart firefox without addons, the lag is completely gone.

    Try installing Cyberfox or Palemoon and test to see if you get the same problems with them. They use their own profiles and do not share your firefox profile.

    Cyberfox - Browse Files at SourceForge.net

    The Pale Moon Project homepage

    If they work without issues - it's time for a full removal (including removal of leftovers) and fresh install of Firefox.

    Sorry for the late response, but I did some testing with cyberfox without addons and it works fine, just like FF works fine without addons. I couldn't find my addons for cyberfox so I have no idea how well it runs with addons installed. The issue with lag and stuttering is still in FF and its annoying. The only solution I have found is to restart FF without addons which seems to make the lag go away, but its not a very good solution because i need my addons.

    to a certainextent yes, but FF seems to be very slowly improving. FF was my default, then back ti IE, which was worse, so now I am trialing Vivaldi, so far so good

    I haven't seen any major improvements for the past many months regarding lag. I update FF but the lag issue is still there unless I restart without addons. It's really annoying. I'm not even using that many addons.

    Have you tried a standard add-ons check -

    Remove all add-ons - check the lag (and I do mean Remove not disable)

    Load an add-on that you like to use and check the lag
    remove the add-on and load another preferred Add-on
    Repeat this with all add on's

    If you find a single add-on that always and exclusively causes issues then you should look for and use an alternative for the faulty item

    If no single Add-on is causing visible lag then you will need to start testing the add-ons in pairs and other multiples which may take a while but is the only way to be certain of what is causing the issue

    Cyberfox will not be updated anymore since FF Quantum was released. However as cyberfox worked on your machine it suggests that the problem is with firefox or profile and not a problem with your hardware.
    You should really make a backup copy of your FF profile:


    1. Press [Windows key+R] on the keyboard. A Run dialog will open.
    2. Type in:
      %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

    Or else navigate to:

    C:\Users\<Windows login/user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>.

    backcup these two: (Profiles folder and Profiles.ini file) to an external drive. Then disconnect the external drive.
    AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
    AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.ini

    Get a copy of GeekUninstaller and run it. https://geekuninstaller.com

    Find Firefox in the list of programs and double click it.
    Choose yes when deleting profile data.
    Allow it to scan for leftovers.
    From the results list delete everything directly related to the Firefox Program installation or application data.

    Reboot when finished.

    Run Cccleaner if you've got a copy. Check here for Firefox leftovers and delete if found:

    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    Press the [Windows key+R] to open a Run dialog, type in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\ and click OK to open the Mozilla folder, then delete the Firefox folder if found.

    Reboot.

    Download a fresh copy of firefox and install it.

    That is almost like Opera.. I tried Opera once and it took over my machine--No More. Firefox Quantum is for me.
