Firefox 46.0, 1.0 for Mint


Anyone else have any trouble with Firefox being very slow in loading pages?

I uninstalled all of my plugins, reset Firefox to all of the defaults, and have only put back AdBlock and the Reddit Enhancement Suite. Still very slow.

I don't seem to be having similar issues with Chromium

I've been using both Firefox and Mint since each started and have not had this problem.

Does it make a difference when you disable the Redditt add-on?

Test it with a really complete fresh FF-profile. This method is fully undoable.

Close FF.
Open your file-manager and make hidden files visible (press ctrl-h).
Rename the folder .mozilla to .mozilla.bck
Start FF, this will create automatically a new FF-profile.
Check.

To get back to your old profile:
Close FF.
Delete the new folder .mozilla
Rename the folder .mozila.bck back to .mozilla
Start FF. Done.
