What the hell is it with recent versions of Firefox??

Postby Brian » Wed May 26, 2010 5:28 pm

For some reason, my Firefox sessions have slowed way down recently. I usually have a lot of tabs (~ 10) open, and it's never been a problem before, but now it's really bogging the system down after I upgraded to the latest FF. I'm using Google Chrome for now, until I can figure out :WTF: the deal is...

Those time out errors sound like your line's just slow, LC. One thing you might try is hitting a page with Firefox and then hitting it again with IE8 to see if there's any difference. There shouldn't be, usually. I think the problem I'm having has to do with the way Firefox handles memory, but your problem seems to be a connection speed one.

If it's 24 that you're having the most problems with, it might be a problem between you and that site. I dunno. But you should still test in both browsers to diagnose the problem, I think.
