I'd like to continue using Firefox but I'm afraid that I have to change browser because I have a big problem of slowness. I've always had the same problem for months. I try to write it, hoping someone will give me advice. I dis some posts in other forum too but without solution.
I have the latest version of Firefox and when I browse on the Internet for 3-4 minutes Firefox works very well and then it becomes slow, even very slow until it can no longer open pages. I have ADSL fiber 200. Then I close Firefox and when I open it, Firefox is regenerated because it works perfectly for another 3-4 minutes but then in a day I have to close it 20-30 times.

I inform you that I have uninstalled it and installed it again. I have created a new profile. I deleted all the files in the cache, but I still have the same problem. Do you think I can solve or do I have to change browsers? Thank you

Does it matter what sites you open?

If you open only, & browser around here - only, for 3-4 minutes, does the situation repeat itself?

And your Anti Virus and or security software?

You came here looking for help, but won't share your solution to help anybody else with the same problem?
