FIREFOX is getting slower day by day

this problem really frustrated me
FIREFOX used to be my main internet browser but until recently ,for unknown reason . firefox is no longer working.
This is really frustrating for FIREFOX fans

NOW< I RECOMMEND OPERA AND GOOGLE CHROME AS THE BEST BROWSER

Haven't a clue why FF is running slow as I am a Google Chrome user and have had no problems with it running slow.
With that out of the way, what Firewall and AV are you using as that may be where I would start?
First I would run MBAM and Ccleaner and post anything unusual so we can start there.

Usually things like this have to do with add-ons.

There are just too many questions I want to ask, I don't even know where to start!

Have you been upgrading Firefox regularly? How many add-ons do you use? Do you often check and delete browser cache and cookies? Have you been meddling with the option in "about:config"?

And second of all, there is no such thing as "the best browser" -__-

Firefox web browser | Help us test the latest beta

That's the newest Beta version from FireFox. It doesn't lag what so ever! Give it a try I'm sure it will make you a FireFox fan once more!

One of the performance issues with Firefox is these 2 folders get fragmented;

file:///C:/Users/Username/AppData/Local/Mozilla/

file:///C:/Users/Username/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/

Try giving them a defrag & i think you will be surprised at the performance boost

For maximum startup speed google terms: Firefox Portable Ramdisk

You should get a step by step how to load FF portable into a ramdisk. If you have a lot of memory and can spare about 128 MB for a ramdisk it definitely honks. That's what I was doing before I got onto Chrome.
