I have been having issues the past few days with Firefox myself. I am not sure whether it is Firefox in my case since it started happening after the last OSX update for ElCapitan. But having had many issues with Firefox over the years has left me searching for another browser. I don't know if you have tried the "Refresh" option which will save important data, but delete all of your themes, extensions, and plugins and create a new profile or not.

 

In my case no matter what I did it didn't work. firefox was still dog slow and some pages wouldn't render correctly. 

 

So I have found a new browser I am testing which works really well so far. If is called Vivaldi (https://vivaldi.com) and so far works REALLY well for me. It reminds me of the old Opera browser which I loved for all the customization features and it worked so well. I missed being able to alphabetize all of my over 5000 bookmarks automatically. It also has a trashcan for bookmarks in case you accidentally delete one, did that one recently in Firefox and they are lost forever...

 

You may just have to wait until they fix Firefox with a new update...again. The only reason i used it was because it is mutli-platform and I can just sign in and have all of my bookmarks on any OS I decide to play with.

clean your browser with superantispyware (deletes cookies). Get a good antivirus for free and a free firewall. 

Wisecare 365 will clean your computer and registry its free.  All this is free. If you don't do

all of this regularly no browser will work right.  Best free antivirus is avast.  You also have to defrag regularly.

Firefox has become to bloated as of late.  Tejas, perhaps an one of your browser addons is the culprit.

 

Pale Moon browser is also an option.  Based on the FF engine but without the bloat - trimmed down FF.

 

Personally, I use Traffic Browser for surfing.  Also use Tab Accelerator for sites not included in TB.

You should use cccleaner or tune up programs, also disable some 2ndary programs that run in background.

 

If the problem is the browser, downgrade manually to firefox 48 and set to no perform the automatic actualizations.

firefox 49 is still new, so its natural that random bugs appear.

Have you considered using the Chromium browser (not Chrome)?

i was also looking for a cross platform browser that i can access and sync with when fire-fox was getting too big to execute effectively on my computer system.

As a backup, i am also using an older version of fire-fox that last worked for my system and was mostly non-proprietary.

This is the official site for manually instalation on firefox.

should remove the actual version(export your bookmarks) then download the version you want acording to your SO (windows, mac,etc)..

you should download an put the actualizations set on manually or non perfom actualizations.

 

https://ftp.mozilla....refox/releases/

 

Some extensions like link readers, snapspro , etc, get bug on firefox 49, so downgrade will help.

 

Enjoy =)

Hello warlord :-)

In my opinion, you would be much easier to return the browser to its original state. And then the new set it up. What for to you all these tools? Do as here suggest and get virgin FireFox.

I do not know if I break the rules, but I do not have any benefit from the placement of the post. I'm just sharing my experience.

Security browser facilitates the use of the sandbox. Free software to version 3.76, 4.20

Sandboxie uses isolation technology to separate programs from your underlying operating system preventing unwanted changes from happening to your personal data, programs and applications that rest safely on your hard drive.

You run the browser in a sandbox. Works. At the end of the session clean the sandbox. All data that you do not save (including cookies, cache, etc. -.. Removed).

Find a program you can on the tag "sandboxie" in any search engine.
