OK so it's not just me. Tested the latest 4.x as portable and it was unbearably laggy and sluggish. Even without any plugins (besides the default ones) or extensions installed so to speak a "Vanilla version" But I'm confident that the FF Team resolves that until the final release until then back to 3.6.12 which is sufficiently fast for me even with 50+ extensions installed.

One ? LOL I couldn't just get rid of 39 extensions if I had to
Here they are..I never planned to have that many but it compiled over the years and I came to rely on those and some are just necessary if you beta test FF nightly builds
