    Thanks Mr.Callender for your guidance.
    Finally I used my Macrium image with Firefox 58. Now I am with ff58. I have not updated to 59.
    However I would like to know for backing up Firefox profile from appdata whether local, localow or roaming or all the three Mozilla folder needs to be backed up.
    Further I would like to know how to go back previous version of Firefox in case current version gives problem.
    If you want to restore only elements of your profile (or all of it) use MozBackup.

    If you want to easily backup and restore your whole profile use Hekasoft Backup

    If you want to manually backup:

    Locate your profile folder - C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox


    Copy the Profiles folder and profiles.ini file to a new folder on your desktop.

    It's best to keep a couple of backups. If things go wrong restore a backup. If you need to clean install FF then you need to check for, and delete if found leftovers here:

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox
    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

    If installing an old version just install it and copy one of you backed up profiles including profiles.ini to this folder:
    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

    Today I upgraded my Firefox58 to 59.0.1 using installer file downloaded from Mozilla site as admin. When I click Tenforums page from book mark, I get part loaded page as shown below.

    But after disabling use recommended performace settings I could load pics.

    I am at loss to understand where the problem lies.

    Try either updating graphics card driver or download the one from your computer manufacturer's website. As long as you've got system image backups that is. The one from your computer manufacturer's website should work okay.

    Also consider changing DNS Lookup just to rule that out.

    Have you tried starting Firefox in safe mode? Just to see if you still have these issues. Open an Admin command prompt and copy/paste the following (including the 2 "). It will start up with all addons temporarily disabled. Won't break anything.

    "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode

    Well FF is getting a bit sluggish when loading videos again, e.g if im skipping through a youtube video, the loading circle appears and the video freezes for 4-5 seconds. Did a comparison with edge and it loads the videos instantly. I solved this the last time by reinstalling windows, but its obviously not a good solution. Perhaps its time to do a fresh install of FF or making a new profile?
