Yikes! How did this ever get released?
I downloaded Firefox 3.5 last week and I’ve been irritated with the slow speed ever since. I’ve even used IE a couple of times out of frustration.
One of the major problems is that Firefox is pulling data from various locations on each system for randomized security reasons. I’m not sure exactly when this started and I’m not a browser security expert, but this is where most of the finger pointing has been directed. Click here for the bug info.
Evidently until this issue is resolved, Mozilla is expecting people to do some old school system cleanup steps (clearing temporary internet files, cookies, yada, yada, yada). Personally, I’m about to use Chrome or something else until this nonsense is put to bed.
Here’s a link to some of the workarounds.
If you’re not a fan of workarounds, then here’s 2 solutions until you want to head back to ‘Ol Faithful:
- If you don’t have Firefox 3.5, keep your browser
- If you have Firefox 3.5, revert back to 3.0 or find a new browser
