    I have used Firefox for years but recently I updated to the newest version and it seems like it randomly stops/lags all the time. So annoying. I have been trying chrome and its fast as hell. Has anyone else experienced this. Think its time for the switch...

    I prefer Firefox, even if it's lagging, privacy over internet speed, always.

    Multiple other affected users have reported that this was an issue caused by malware on their pc. please run a full scan of your system with the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner (both these security tools are free).

    I'm also experiencing the lag... Chrome opens many instances of itself, seen in task manager, so chrome is also not an option. May be I'll try Opera.

    Basically almost people prefered Crom browser and firefox browser is optional in Device. In the firefox, you can do more work so that loading firefox and back proccess effect for firefox so it is lagging.

    So that most popular browser is Crom and it is many time lagging but Firefox better than Crom browser use by the user.

    Hey ive done the opposite too you lol was using chrome was working fast then lagged, un-installed it , insalled new version Ffox and tweaked it in the about:config
    runs super fast even faster than Opera on turbo which is the fastest browser believe it or not lol, just make sure you limit your addons & extensions... chrome is a CPU Muncher!

    Chrome will run fast if you dont install any plugins , but chrome is only good because of its addons. so weighing up the facts firefox beats chrome hands down in my opinion. and i dont work for Mozilla :p

    But, Google is taking your data!!
    Firefox is working fine for me, just update to the latest version and uninstall any unwanted programs from your PC as it sometimes affect Firefox too... And don't forget to run a full scan, deep scan and boot time scan.
