Hey guys,
My Firefox is driving me mad,for the past 3 weeks whenever I use my firefox it seems to frequently freeze for about 5secs before I can do anything(happens the most when I change tabs or scroll down). I thought it was the extensions I installed so I uninstalled most of it bar Adblock and Fastfox due to them being fine on my laptops Firefox. Any reasons why?

Thanks

Your install of FF may be corrupt, specifically your profile folder. You could try this, but you'd have to install FF from scratch afterwards!

Uninstall FF via Add/Remove. Navigate to the Programs folder and delete the Mozilla Firefox folder. Then navigate to here:
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\"USER NAME"\Application data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"RANDOM STRING".default
and delete the folder. This is your profile folder where you add-ons/bookmarks/preferences etc are stored.

Finally, navigate to
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\"USER NAME"\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
and delete it.


Now reinstall FF and see if that cures your problem.
