    From post #1
    Some firefox problems
    One could check and see if the add-on's they have for Firefox are still offered.
    Mozilla has stopped offering many add-on's because they don't meet the new standards for Firefox Quantum.
    If the older add-on's were 'Exported' from a older Firefox they may not still work.

    This is only a suggestion on my part. It may or may not help with your problem.

    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
    Will try it and come back with the results. But I can almost already say that its adguard causing most of the lag.

    @Callender i will try it and come back wih the results.

    That is almost like Opera.. I tried Opera once and it took over my machine--No More. Firefox Quantum is for me.
    hello from a wet cyprus! JW: Vivaldi is by the same people who did opera but they claim better things; I think they may be right. I binned opera a few weeks ago because it did something unknown now to the pc went onto FF, Quantum then IE then Vivaldi. Quamtum is still in the pc at home but not default. Vivaldi is running the show at present, seems to be doing nicely. Not yet introduced Vivaldi this this laptop, may do later on today.

    Ok, so i did some testing to solve the lag. I disabled new tab override first, and then video downloader professional and google image search, didn't solve the problem. I then disabled adguard blocker, helped a little bit but it was still laggy. I restarted FF without addons, that helped a lot, but it didn't completely solve the problem with lag. Strange.

    Calender, should i download firefox quantum or just the regular firefox?

    Same version as you are running now. If it's an old version you can update once it's fixed.

    Well i used geekuninstaller to get rid of firefox, cleaned with ccleaner, downloaded the latest firefox (couldn't figure out how to get the exact same version as i had) and installed my addons, so lets see how it goes.

    P.S how do you change what the new tab shows? I want it to show google. I have been using an add on so far, but i feel like its ridicilious to have an addons installed just because you want to change a basic feature like that.

    Well been running with a fresh install of firefox quantum for a few days, so far no lag. Will give it a week or so and come back with the results.

    Click the Customize new tab button on the right corner while on a new tab, there you ll find options on what to do. And for Google, you can make it your default search engine in Firefox Options.

    Click image for larger version.

    Put google on the bookmarks bar, when you want to open a new tab with that, wheel click it.
