Firefox Loosing Pace

  DerekR 21:45 27 Oct 2005

I don't know if its me, my new PC or Firefox, but I have found it very slow recently. I just installed Netscape for a comparison, and I now find Netscape faster than F/F.

Anyone else suffering this phenomenon?

I have all the tweaks applied, and F/F was lightening fast, now, site seem to just crawl to be opened.

Have you installed any extensions recently? Sometimes they can cause a problem.

nope, no new extensions - had it configured perfectly for my needs, but have noticed a deterioration in F/F's overall performance recently - no dicernable reason for it as far as I can see, just thought it may well be something other folks have noticed.

Mess about - find the problem!!

The nglayout.initialpaint.delay integer value had for some strange reason changed it's value from 0 to 300 - reset it and whooooooooooosh F/F is away down the straight like greased weasel droppings off a shovel!

You could also try Finetune Firefox - saves a lot of messing in about:config:

Netscape 7.2 as good Mail program if you are using Version 8 then I found it hard to setup so stuck with Version 7.2
