I’m running Firefox 65.0.1 64 bit, and after a short while of browsing (usually about 20mins) it starts getting really slow to load pages, to the point where nothing happens.
I note that most of the threads on this sort of thing suggest starting Firefox in safe mode first, so I did that, and it seems faster, but now I don’t know what to do?
(I’ve also carried out all the tweaks to about:config advised in another thread about slow Firefox, but these have not helped)
I’ve got the exactly the same addons on my Windows machine and cause no problems, so I presume, if it’s the addons, it’s some compatibility option, but I would really like to have ads blocked somehow, and the only addon I have is uBlock Origin.
Also, the slow-down is kind of random, so I still can’t be absolutely sure it’s caused by the addon.
Does anyone know if this problem is common and if there’s any solution to it?
If it’s caused by uBlock Origin, does anyone know of an ad blocker which doesn’t cause this problem?
