Firefox has long had a problem with Facebook through many updates. Running Windows 7 64 bit. It will crash when doing searches and I start to scroll, FF crashes. In general it starts to get very slow to respond. Don't experience this with Chrome.

Any known fixes for this? Thanks.

Have you tried starting Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
If no improvement using Safe Mode, do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?

I see you're still running 56. I've had the same things you are going through on 56, but 57 completely fixed all of it for me. Firefox has been the best to scroll/view Facebook now for me. Even Chrome is now slow/choppy on Facebook compared to Firefox.
Do, or do not. There is no try.

Yes, not long after I posted this question after long aggravation with this issue through numerous FF updates, I happened to update and saw it was the new 57 Quantum and that they made a big deal of announcing that it was a major update. I found that most issues were fixed and overall it's a lot faster.
