What are add-ons? I don't think I've got any.

Why would add-ons which have never previously caused a problem suddenly do so?
I can understand that happening if one of them was found to be incompatible with an update but FF went home here about two weeks ago, all of its own accord.

@SlowSong At the top of FireFox click on tools then 'Add-ons' This will open a new tab. Click on 'Extensions' and let us know what you have there. This is a list of add-ons you have installed.

1. Firefox update conflict

2. Extension update making things bloated

3. Extensions being installed (unknowingly) by other software (ie: AVG).

There have been some issues with Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox lately which I have noticed some issues with on many sites, including ePHOTOzine. I hope adobe get it resolved soon.

Quote: Well FF did another upgrade this morning and it's as slow and hesitant as it was before. Everything's dragging. Sad In fact it's worse. I just waited 12 seconds to edit this thread and it stops every single time I click on something.

FF has upgraded on my laptop as well, but no noticeable drop in speed as a result.

@SlowSong At least we have ruled that possibility out then. I see your running Windows 7 64-bit. This is the particular platform that flash player is having issues in firefox on. Do you find it's not always slow, just occasionally unbearably slow?

1. Make sure it's plugged in.

2. Turn it off/ Turn it Back on

Those 2 things generally sort out 90% of all IT problems in my experience Tongue

1. Make sure it's plugged in. - Derrrrrrr. I might be blond but I'm not that daft. Grin

2. Turn it off/ Turn it Back on - Got it in 2. No hesitation at all now. The only reason I didn't do that before is that I've turned my machine on and off every day so why it should work this time I've no idea.

I really learn a lot about the workings of computers from people on here. The simplest of problems seem to have endless causations and solutions, none of which I understand. I think you lot are brilliant, and you even put up with my questions even when I'm being a dork.

Thanks Grin
