firefox issues

  iqs 21:10 13 Oct 2011

Hi Since the latest update for the latest version of Firefox,web pages are taking forever to load. I have reinstalled Firefox,still happens.

I had no issues before the update,and while running the previous version. I did a test before posting,I started Firefox and IE,clicked on the saved links to this web site,IE opened within seconds,Firefox took over 30seconds.

Even with IE closed,it still takes forever to open any pages.

Anyone else having issues,also any idea where I can download a previous version of Firefox ?

Nice one northumbria61 just tried your 2nd click here and it removed almost 500Mb from the Browser cache.

Not updated your flash player recently.

Maybe run your security programs and see if they find anything.

Or maybe a system restore to a date before you updated Firefox.
