Facebook slows down or freezes temporialy when using Firefox. Why?

When doing certain functions while on Facebook, such as "hide this post" my laptop seems to freeze for a few seconds. FB slowns down period. I have done the same using IE and all seems good.

I just tested it with a deliberate post that I knew would reveal the drop down right away, I typed in @Scott (on a friend named Scott's post) in a Comment, and the drop down showed me all the Scott autofill matches, no problem. Then I typed in just Scott and it showed the drop down but then immediately froze...?
But there are other instances where I have written paragraphs of text, any number of words should have drawn a drop down but they didn't, then suddenly I'll type a word and the drop down and freezing occurs.
It appears entirely random but I just don't think that's how these things work.
Very frustrating.

  • MacBook slows down to a crawl when using iSight

    Hi!
    I have a 2006 MacBook (Core Due 2 GHz), which I have upgraded to Snow Leopard (via Leopard). I am trying to use the built-in camera ("iSight") for video chat, but when I do, the computer slows down to a crawl, and the application that is using the camera takes all CPU.
    I've tried with both iChat and Skype, and the result is the same, so it seems to be in the camera drivers and not the applications themselves.
    Does anyone have any good ideas on what I can do to alleviate the problem? I have not installed any specific drivers for the camera beyond what comes with Mac OS.

    Hello nafmo
    Snow Leopard's iChat 5 does require more CPU power than iChat 4 (from Leopard), so you may, in part, be noticing that. The best way to verify that is with your Mac's Activity Monitor utility. For your comparison, my new 2.26GHz Core2Duo MacBook Pro uses slightly more than half of both cores for Snow Leopard iChat video chats.
    Here are some other things you can consider:

  • Tempo of music slows down after a while when using IPod Shuffle

    I started running with my IPod shuffle,
    and I noticed this glitch, that everytime that I go running,
    after a couple of minutes (5-10 minutes), the music starts slowing down,
    and let me say that the battery was full when this happened.
    help please?

    I think so, This IPOD is not exercise friendly, I had exchanged my earphones twice, and used a set of earphones without the controls, after 20 min in a run the thing just stopped, I charged it before I left, I think this is a moisture problem.

  • Firefox is slowing down. More I am using Firefox then more I have to wait for reaction(open tab, klick on button etc.)

    For more that one year everything was ok with Firefox. Even after upgrades of my PC everything was just fine. About 2 months ago when I opened Firefox I noticed that he is slowing down(not PC only browser). More time I spend on Firefox longer takes everything-from tab opening, button klicks, closing tabs etc. It looks like it freeze for period of second or longer and come back to normal for few seconds. I was trying to ckeck that on many any only one opened tab. But result was same. I deinstalled Firefox, deleted related folders and installed him one more time with updates and with updated Adobe Flash but without changes. Still crap. Please HELP!!!

    The proper way to close Firefox is through the File menu "Exit" or the equivalent with the Firefox button.

    Firefox already running, to properly shutdown Firefox when closing the last window use File → Exit/Quit (or Firefox button → Exit). Closing Firefox with the [X] in the upper right corner closes the window ("Ctrl+W") but that does not necessarily close Firefox if it has subtasks running. If you want to close and reopen Firefox use the "Restart" within Add-ons if you made a change requiring a restart, or install "[https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/restartless-restart/ Restartless Restart]" ("Ctrl+Alt+R") which will allow you to take Firefox down and restart without having to check the Windows Task Manager to see if Firefox first actually ended.

  • I can't open the chat bar in facebook when using Firefox, why?

    Whenever i use Firefox in Facebook, i can't open the chat bar and when i try to click Profile, I still have to confirm it. It's also the same when i try to look at notifications and when i try to log-out. Is there a way to make it stop asking me when i go to my profile without the browser asking me?

    I have exactly the same problem.
    It only affects FaceBook and only in Firefox but it's really annoying.
    I can post status updates but can't comment on them or on anything else.
    The message "Unable to post comment." with the option to "try again" appears every time.
    Also, when I try to "Like" something it's as if it works for a split second and then self "unlikes" again. It's only today I've started to have this problem.
    I've tried jscher2000's idea but it did not solve this problem.
    'Concerned a virus or something might be the cause... :/

    Fire fox crashes and freezes if i use it too much (kind of a good thing). For example if i use stumble fire fox will start to slow down then freeze completely. I am using windows XP pro and a pretty decent computer. All software is up to date and i do no have a virus. I have even tried to disable my add-ons and plug-ins but it did not make a difference.

  • My iMac freezes when using Firefox

    My iMac freezes when using Firefox. We have to restart our computer.

    TutorDaddy, if this Mac is still covered by the initial warranty or under AppleCare, take it in and have it looked at. As the old label used to say, there truly are "no user serviceable parts inside." Kernel panics very usually indicate failing hardware.
    I have an older iBook G4 that started developing kernel panics and like you, despite reinstalling the OS from a freshly formatted volume, they kept continuing. I looked at the crash log and saw that in each instance of panic, the last bit of code to be accessed had something to do with AirPort. Knowing that the AirPort software was at then current levels, I surmised the problem to be a bad AirPort networking card which, on that particular model of the iBook, was a very small module attached directly to the logic board. Since the computer was out of AppleCare, I broke the machine down myself (I didn't realize that there could be so many barely visible screws in one machine) and removed the offending piece of hardware. My iBook lives but without WiFi, it now sits as a more or less desktop machine needing an ethernet connection to stay connected to a network.
    I do not suggest you break into your iMac. First of all, I'm guessing one would need to be able to pull off the glass and have the necessary glue to reattach it, which is not really available to us consumers. If you're feeling adventurous enough to read the crash logs from each panic, you might be able to surmise the hardware component (or badly written application or library; it can happen) that's causing the panic. If it's a software issue, remove the offending software app and see if the panics return. If it's a hardware issue, it's best to let a competent service tech qualified on Apple hardware to handle it.

    After browsing through related problems in the discussions, I saw this link to a third-party web site being handed out. Perhaps you'll find it useful: http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/kernelpanics.html

  • Why is Windows 7 freezing when using Firefox?

    -Has been happening for months now with many attempts to pinpoint cause. Have come to the conclusion that it is Firefox but don't understand why.
    -When using Firefox, my entire PC, not just Firefox, will freeze. Sometimes it happens within the first 5min of using Firefox, other times it could happen an hour into a session. A hard restart is the only way to get back to my desktop as I have waited an hour before after a freeze and nothing happens. Mouse pointer won't move, nothing.
    -Initially thought it was a hardware issue or an anti-virus issue.
    -Reinstalled windows on three different hard drives that all pass the disk check. Still happens
    -Installed windows 8 to see if that would fix the problem. Nope, does the same thing on Windows 8.
    -Ran Memtest 86+ for 14 hours one night to see if it was my memory. Nope, zero memory errors found
    -To be sure I even tried only using one stick of ram in my PC at a time to see if any of the sticks were bad. Nope, it froze with every stick
    -Tried changing my anti-virus. It froze with every single one, AVG Free, Avast Free, Microsoft Security Essentials.
    -I figured out that my PC only freezes when I am browsing the web in firefox. If I use chrome or Internet explorer, it doesn't happen. These total PC freezes only happen when I am using firefox.
    -My only add on/plug in that I am using is Adblock plus besides the default ones that come with Firefox.
    -My firefox is up to date, I have reset it and reinstalled it [while only adding Ad Block +] and this still does not fix the problem
    -In the windows event log the only thing that happens every time my PC freezes is the Error "Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D", why this would only affect Firefox, I don't know.
    -I would like to figure out the cause of this because I would really like to use Firefox again.

    Hello,
    Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. Since this feature was added to Firefox, it has gradually improved, but there still are a few glitches.
    You might need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).
    Then perform these steps:
    *Click the orange Firefox button at the top left, then select the "Options" button, or, if there is no Firefox button at the top, go to Tools > Options.
    *In the Firefox options window click the ''Advanced'' tab, then select "General".
    *In the settings list, you should find the ''Use hardware acceleration when available'' checkbox. Uncheck this checkbox.
    *Now, restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.
    Additionally, please check for updates for your graphics driver by following the steps mentioned in the following Knowledge base articles:
    * [[Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems]]
    * [[Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL]]
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
    Thank you.

  • My entire computer hangs when using Firefox

    Periodically, my entire computer freezes when using Firefox and I have to do a hard shutdown. Most recently, my computer froze immediately after I opened a dialog box with open/save file options for a Kindle software update on Amazon.com.
    At first I thought the problem might be a conflict with my online backup utility, SugarSync, so I've made a point of exiting SugarSync before opening FF. During the latest freeze, described above, however, Sugar Sync was off.
    This problem has been occurring almost daily, and it can't be good for my computer. I really need a solution!
    PS: I'm using version 3.6.13 on a Windows 7 machine.
    Thank you.

    Firefox didn't crash, but I found qrobe to be less useful than google. To remove, go to the search icon on the tool bar. click on the search drop down menu, select "mange search engines." Click on qrobe and then click on "remove." Done.
    I had to have another selection like google available before I could select remove for qrobe if you also have that issue.

  • I have a mac 10.6 system when using firefox, I can no longer open attachments or downloads. I deleted firefox and reinstalled and it still doesn't work.

    When using firefox, I can no longer open attachments, pdf or downloads. A new window will open and it is blank. The only way to open an attachment or pdf is to shut down firefox and use safari. Everything works with safari so I can't understand what went wrong with firefox. I even download adobe reader thinking that would help. I then deleted my original firefox and re downloaded firefox again. It still doesn't work.
    I am using a 10.6 operating system on my Mac.

    Try to disable the Adobe Reader plugin in Firefox (Tools > Add-ons > Plugins) and use the external Adobe Reader application or Preview application instead.

  • When using Firefox as my browser, my "back" button no longer works? And by the way...getting help is a real pain in the butt on this site!!!!!

    When using Firefox as my browser, my "back" button no longer works? And by the way...getting help is a real pain in the butt on this site!!!!!

    see -- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Kill_application
    which explains how to completely exit (quit) your Mozilla application
    Try closing Firefox completely
    *Close Firefox properly '''File > Exit''', not with the "X" which just closes the window.
    *Use the Windows Task Manager "Processes" tab to make sure that firefox.exe is not running and also that the plugin-container.exe is not running.
    If that does not work, try restarting the system.
    If still no luck try restoring bookmarks from last backup, or better create your own .json backup and restore from that.
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Backing_up_and_restoring_bookmarks_-_Firefox#Creating_bookmark_backups
    *''If you had to go this far, please provide feedback if restoring bookmarks alone fixed the problem. I think I may have done that once with success, but never see that suggested -- I'd try most anything to not lose history or bookmarks. But then I could restore files from my profile and restore latest bookmarks backup from current profile.''
    The following will result in complete loss of history if it comes down to deleting places.sqlite, so rename files rather than deleting. With Firefox down.
    Of course you have backups of your profile you could replace rename and
    replace those files instead.

  • Computer shuts off when using Firefox.

    When using Firefox on my XP machine, the computer shuts down while on the Internet at random. I removed FF and reinstalled it, and it still shuts my computer down while on the net. I swap over to IE and there is no problems so it's in the Firefox program. Did not do this until a few weeks ago. HELP

    I had this same problem, searched the net, got frustrated, but finally worked it out. If I used Mozilla my computer running Xp would shut off, if I used IE I could surf the web. However flash was not working on Youtube. In the end the problem was simply that my version of Adobe Flash was not the current one, this was causing a software conflict, which in turn was shutting down my computer while running firefox. I simply went to the Adobe site, and updated to the latest Flash, and also downloaded a debugger program for IE. Since then everything is ok, Mozilla no longer turns off my computer, and IE8 works fine with Youtube.
    Hope this helps, as it sure frustrated me at the time.

  • I can't see any pictures or graphics when using firefox, I just get a broken file image. How do I fix it?

    I can't see any icons or images when using Firefox. I can on other browsers on my apple laptop. How can I fix it?

    *Check the permissions for the domain in the current tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
    *Check that images are enabled: Firefox > Preferences > Content: [X] Load images automatically
    *Check the exceptions in "Firefox > Preferences > Content: Load Images > Exceptions"
    *Check the "Tools > Page Info > Media" tab for blocked images (scroll through all the images with the cursor Down key).
    If an image in the list is grayed and there is a check-mark in the box "<i>Block Images from...</i>" then remove that mark to unblock the images from that domain.
    There are also extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) that can block images.
