    So I update Firefox Saturday night - I always do the
    updates when they come out, and it rendered it useless.
    I could barely do anything with it, each 'click' on anything
    took 45 seconds to 'never' to navigate.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and it now works fine.
    Anyone else?

    Oh - this was on a Windows 10 desktop.

    Could just be a fluke

    I love Firefox but I hate the Mozilla company for all their missteps, can't blame them though, gotta figure out a way to replace all the money Google was giving them

    Check out Brave if you're still having issues. It's a fork of Chrome without all the tracking, and includes added security.

    Annnnd I see I just revived a thread from ~7 months ago. Point still stands at least

    Opera, Vivaldi and Midori are all great browsers too.

    Why does Firefox hog so much memory? It's ridiculous. Is there a way to limit it?
