Why is Firefox Running So Slow?

One common complaint about Firefox is that at times it can run very slow. The user will get frustrated with the browser and blame Firefox for being a bad browser. The reality is that there are some other things that should be taken into observation first.

Why is Firefox Running So Slow?

If you haven’t restarted your computer and restarted the browser in awhile, it’s a good idea to do this first. Ordinarily when you have any computer problem or application issue, a restart is the best place to start because many times that will fix anyone issue it is Firefox or not. This will forestall from having to mess with something that didn’t need to be taken care of.


One thing that you have to understand about the Firefox browser is that there are thousands of addons. These addons are not independently checked by Mozilla to make sure they all work together. At times some take up quite a bit of resources causing the browser to slow down. Other times these addons conflict with each other. This is a major source of the slowdown in speed.


Disable your addons to make sure that these aren’t the source of your problem. Many times when population have asked in forums about the slowness of Firefox the addons were the issue. Each one of these will take up a bit of your ram and eventually with too many, the browser will be slow. There is no way to run unlimited additional plugins without eventually running into reserved supply problems.

Think of this. Firefox is an open source application with thousands of population who have contributed to the browser. Where is the logic that thousands of programmers would purposely issue a browser that is slow? Why would they make a bad version of the software when there are thousands of eyeballs thought about finding over the code? The reality is that they would not.
