Hi peolple. A month ago I upgraded to Mozilla Firefox 10 and since them when I try to open it for the first time , it takes like a minute .After that usually open normally. I have internet explorer and I don't have that problem.

Update it to version 11 through your normal update.

I upgraded it to 11 but the problem still continues. The thing is it takes too long to open for the first time. after that it opens normally.

Maybe delete Firefox then reinstall it to see if that helps.Open Taskmanager then see what is using up most of the CPU when Starting Firefox.Probably your security programs but which ones.

Maybe try Adblock Plus to see if that helps.Or disable all of your add ons to see if it works Ok with them disabled.If so enable them one at a time till you find the one causing the problems.

  3. when asked to input about:config in the address bar do so and follow the instructions from youtube

the slowness can happen also when you just switched in the router, u have to wait a minute or two

Hi. thanks for the answers. I use 3 mobile broadband (always in the same place- I can't get regular broadband for some reasons). The service is not quite good, I made a speed test and I got 0,05 mb of download spedd. Then in youtube I found a video "how to speed your internet". It recommends going to OPEN DNS and change the DNS adress (control panel) to and it helps. Pages download faster includind Firefox and the new speed test shows now it gets 2.22 mb. Tha's an improving.

3 mobile yes the slower i use to b with them but left them several years back for virgin.

The trouble with 3 is that you get limited download and usage and if you go over then u got xtra charges.
