    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.

    Ive been using ublock origin for some time now and the lag problem is gone. FF is running smooth. Also, after changing my mainboard on my computer, and switching wireless adapter, FF seems to have become a lot more responsive. Sometimes I barely get to click and the website is already loaded. It works great for the most part. I would still like to solve the rest of the problems.

    Will test them and come back with the results.

    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.

    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
