It is. That figure the deem an addon to be "slow" is the amount of CPOW's it creates. uBlock is blazing fast, but creates a lot of these. I'd understand greasemonkey being slow, but not ublock...

Virtualfox persona

Tired of constant Firefox UI changes?
XUL extensions are not working anymore?
Try SeaMonkey, Waterfox Classic, Pale Moon.

Anyone having issues with Android FF and typing a word starting with i causes it to duplicate? Such as if I type the word "is" it comes out as "iis". Only Firefox does this.

Nope, but the Android FF beta always hang 10-30s for the cool boot, maybe it is some hang causing it?
Because when Android software hang, it always hang with the IME/keyboard.

Well, technically it's not the amount, but rather the time spent in those CPOWs (as said in the previous thread the threshold is 1% Usage per 120s = 1.2s CPOW-time in 120s).

At least now I know why I didn't switch to uBlock. I'd imagine an Add-On-Developer who writes a new Add-On would write modern asynchronous code and not use a "migration aid"[1] that has serious limitations and can cause performance problems.

Even if it's synchronous it's still waaaaaaaay faster than ABP
