Firefox problem


Hi all,

Ubuntu 16.04 64bit
Firefox 51.0.1
AMD Core-8
RAM 32G
HD SSD
Network - FTTH 500M

Recently I found the browsing speed seeming very slow frequently

Warning popup
Code:
A web page is slowing down your browser what would you like to do
Stop or Wait
Please advise how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Regards
satimis

How about:
  • Don't visit that web site.
  • Click "Stop"
  • Click "Wait"
  • Try another browser
  • Disable extensions
It's a web page; you don't say which one, but it could have a TON of javascript and other junk behind the scenes (ads, etc.), that would slow it down. You don't say anything about your browser configuration, speed of your connection, what web site, nor even how many pages you have open at once. ALL of these things could affect things. You've been using Linux for at least 14 years now, and have been using web browsers for that long....seems like an odd question given those things.

The problem, as TBone said, is probably the website, not your Firefox.

Another thought might be to install the noscript addon, if you haven't already installed it. That will give you some control over which scripts you allow or disallow.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice. I can't predict when this problem will happen nor which website will have this problem. I have 5 or 6 tabs running. The website having encoutered this problem won't popup similar problem on next browing after a while or browsing it on Google Chrome.

I'll install your suggested addon later to check

If you can post links to some of the problem websites, we might be able to offer more precise advise.

I do not use Google Chrome. Google already knows enough about me.

I just found following link affects other tabs unable to browse;

https://www.google.com.hk/maps/place...2!4d117.227219

After closing it other tabs worked normal again.

This is just one example encountered by me recently

Edit:
Now this link works normal again including other tabs. I haven't made another adjustment.

A quick 'toss' of the error message into a web-search returns some mention of:
"dom.ipc.processHangMonitor" and "dom.ipc.reportProcessHangs".
IF you want to 'just turn these off', put "about:config" into the address bar ...

"Recently"?

How about a start a nnew firefox profile and report from that?
Clear cache/history, You know, a clean slate?
Any other browser affected?


Huge outage yesterday didn't help.

half the internet "died" yesterday.
My Death Star did not.

Hi,

Performed following steps:

on terminal

⟫ mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/firefox/backup ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/backup
⟫ mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/*.sqlite ~/.mozilla/firefox/backup
⟫ mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/sessionstore.js ~/.mozilla/firefox/backup
⟫ mv ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/*.default/* ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/backup

logout and relogin
without starting Firefox

on terminal
⟫ sudo apt-get install bleachbit

⟫ bleachbit --clean firefox.*
Code:
......
Disk space recovered: 832.9MB
Files deleted: 12438
Special operations: 10
Restart Firefox.
Browsing speed seems improved. I'll continue watching it.

I have Google Chrome running here. It seems working without problem

Regards
satimis

Cleaning cache works wonders.
Glad it worked out.

Didn't need bleachbit for that.
