    Recently my Firefox has become very slow. It is constantly locking up on me. Is there some way to speed it up a bit?


    Thanks

    Just uninstall and reinstall it after rebooting your computer. It might work properly.

    Just download and install chrome. Run it for the first time it would ask you if you want to import your bookmarks from other browsers. It would import your bookmarks and save it. Then uninstall firefox and re install after rebooting and do the same thing with it firefox would import everything back. You will be back to normal. Do remember to install the latest version of firefox.
