I thought that when Mozilla released Firefox 57, code named Quantum, it would live up to the recent hype about how fast it would be.
I did not find that to be the case. My home page is www.google.com and it would take almost 10 seconds to load it. That is ridiculously too slow.
I did some research and found others had complained about slow response and freezing web browsers. The net result is a simple fix: turn off the Accessibility Services (if you don’t need it).
- Click the menu button and choose .
- Select the panel.
- Go to the “Permissions” section.
- Check the Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser checkbox.
- Restart Firefox.
Simple and sweet – and it works!
Here is the KB article if you want to read the entire description of these services and how you might be affected if you disable them: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/accessibility-services
Hope that helps!
