I've begun to notice that Firefox keeps running slower and slower on my laptop. So I started to poke around and it looks like my Windows 10 firewall is blocking it. But I'm still using FF so should I remove the firewall? Would it make Firefox run faster? I'm on the latest version of Firefox too.

    If the firewall were blocking it you would not be able to navigate at all.

    The firewall has nothing to do with it being slow, so you should try to go in another direction in your investigation of the problem.

    One of the first things you should do is reviewing the add-ons you have installed on it, if any, as there are a lot of toolbars and other types of add-ons that can make it work incorrectly or make it slow.
