I've never felt the need to do that but in light of what's happened recently...I will reconsider. This hasn't happened before and I never thought to do that.

I suspect the problem lies in your FF Profile or else it just didn't install the new version correctly over the top of the old version.

a problem with firefox

Follow all steps including:

Check here for Firefox leftovers and delete if found:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
Press the [Windows key+R] to open a Run dialog, type in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\ and click OK to open the Mozilla folder, then delete the Firefox folder if found.
Also try running FF with addons disabled to see if you get the same problem.

Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help

That's Menu button (hamburger icon) > Help Symbol which is a questionmark> Restart with addons disabled.

If you happen to see it and it's set to true, change it to false and restart Firefox, see if that makes things faster for you.

Again, it's weird, it's supposed that e10s fasten things up... but well...

I was going to try that but see no way to do so. It has New, Reset and Copy. Sorry, I've never done that before. It does say "True".

Just double click the setting over the "true" value, it will change to false, then restart FF, that should do the trick
