When I visit www.doityourself.com in FF, it is slow. And if I open pages in new tabs, the previous tabs show that pages are reloading again and again.

I have used IE, and do not see slowness or reloading. Some people on the site using FF 54 do not see my problems. I have not been on this site recently, so I am not sure if this started after an update of FF or not.

I used FF 53.0.1 or similar. I updated to 55.0b7 (beta, I believe) yesterday, and it got a little better with the speed, but still reloading, and still rather slow. I have cleared the cache.

Any idea what might be going on or what I can do?

Try Safe Mode.

If that doesn't work a New test Profile.

Cookies (except protected; very few, and certainly not DIY) are deleted every time I close FF.

Try to disable multi-process.
browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false
browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false

Oooops, got side-tracked. Yes, I tried it, and it did not make a difference. Then, I did this:

======== dickvl =================
Try to disable multi-process.
browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false
browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false
===============================

"browser.tabs.remote.autostart" was already false, but "browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2" was "true". When I set it to "false", things started working normally. However, I bellieve that the site also have serious problems in re. to FF. Not uncommon, I'm afraid. However, a new version of the site will be published on 7/11/2017 (that is, tomorrrow). It will be interesting to see if it improves things.

Thank you all for you input. I will read a little about auto-start and then experiment when the new version of the DIY website is up.

Regards,

Hans L

Note that Firefox 55 has a performance section in about:preferences General tab.
If you remove the checkmark on "Use recommended performance settings" then you see more settings (hardware acceleration and multi-process settings).

Okay, Dick, see it. What I wonder right now is shy there are two autostarts?

browser.tabs.remote.autostart
browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2

browser.tabs.remote.autostart is the master setting for enabling multi-process.
This pref will be used when the Firefox developers consider this feature implemented good enough to be use by default.
While multi-process (e10s) is still under development there will be opt-in preferences with a number appended to allow 'testing' this feature with a special feature extension (Multi-process staged rollout: e10srollout@mozilla.org).
