Hi Since the latest update for the latest version of Firefox,web pages are taking forever to load. I have reinstalled Firefox,still happens.

I had no issues before the update,and while running the previous version. I did a test before posting,I started Firefox and IE,clicked on the saved links to this web site,IE opened within seconds,Firefox took over 30seconds.

Even with IE closed,it still takes forever to open any pages.

Anyone else having issues,also any idea where I can download a previous version of Firefox ?

Thanks

Not updated your flash player recently.

Maybe run your security programs and see if they find anything.

Or maybe a system restore to a date before you updated Firefox.
