FireFox is taking forever to finish loading the page!

Q: FireFox is taking forever to finish loading the page!

Firefox is now taking about a minute to fully load the page complete with pictures. I am using a high speed internet connection and it used to take a matter of seconds. Now I am getting very frustrated with Firefox and am thinking of using IE 7 again. Can anyone help me with my problem?

Thanks for all your help!

Preferred Solution: FireFox is taking forever to finish loading the page!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys. I'm having some wierd problems with firefox. I don't recall/remember these ever happening when i first used it. But I notice that in forums, for example, if one image is repeated multiple times, it will actually go through the trouble of loading each one, one by one.

In internet explorer 6 and Opera, the very same pages load HELLA fast.

I have a Cable internet connection (by timewarner/roadrunner)

I'm PRETTY sure it was never like this before. Any ideas?

I use Win10 on a fast broadband connection (100Mbps) will lowish ping rates.

I notice that more and more web sites are taking a long time to finish loading. They start very fast indeed, but are incomplete and it can take up to a minute before the screen has finished jumping around as it re-renders itself. This appears to be caused by the site pulling-in images from third party sites, especially for adverts.

This has become a real inconvenience. Is this the fault of the website developer? Is there a better way of feeding-in these third part elements? Is there anything I can do my end to improve this?

I am on a 4G connection and someone suggested I change a buffer setting on the router? Anyone comment on that?

A:Web pages taking ages to finish loading

ISP could be throttling your account. "Limiting your download speed."

Run a speed test.

What sites are giving you trouble? P2P?

Could I possibly be infected? I am having problems with accessing any and all webpages. At first, I thought it was just a Mozilla issue, but the same problems occur in Google Chrome and IE. I will type in a URL and press enter and sometimes it will take forever to load, and if I click on the link again, it will bring it up instantly. It seems as if it is stalling. And other times, if I click on the link for a second time, it will say "done" on the bottom left hand side, but it will certainly not be done! I have been having this problem for weeks now and it is driving me crazy!
I have run Spybot, Adaware, Spyware Doctor, Malwarebytes, my AVG antivirus scan, and the free Symantec one on the website. Nothing has been found wrong!
I tried restoring my computer to 4 different restore points but they were all unsuccessful.
I tried uninstalling Zone Alarm, thinking that was causing the problem, but nothing changed. I had k9 web protection on my computer, but uninstalled it weeks ago and I am still having problems. I have the same problem running my wireless or using an ethernet cable; on my network and at a friend's house.
Please help!

Only in the morning, is gotten worse gradually, and taking up to 2 hours to finally get firefox to load the yahoo home page. Outlook express6 also won't retreive mail for the longest time. Then, when it finally loads its fine for the day. I have run antimalware, security essentials scans. Nothing helps. Then later in the day, I tried Ccleaner, but to no avail. I tried to disable unnecessary items in startup utility. Unable to tell which items should be fixed when I run a check in ccleaner for the registry. Afraid to try to fix items in there. Wonder why the computer only goes crazy slow in the early morning? Once it starts loading firefox, it is fine and fast for the day. This is killing my shop production in the morning. Can somebody please help?

A:outlook 6 and firefox taking forever to open in XP

Only use CCleaner for cleanup, not registry "fixing". I would look at a hardware solution. There are many tests available. Possibly zero in on PSU or RAM. Also see what happens if you disable the firewall and AV.

I'm running IE (32bit) on Vista x64 Prem. The problem is that whenever the browser is about to finish loading a page, it just hangs for a few seconds and won't allow me to do anything on the page (not even scrolling). I have a Vista x86 on a different machine and I don't have that problem.

I have all the windows updates installed.

Any ideas?

When I open either one of my browsers, IE8 or Firefox, my home page usually loads without delay. But, once I try to load a web page, I will get a perpetual blank screen or a partial screen for that web page or what seems to be the entire page but the info bar below shows items still loading. I almost never get the word "Done" at the bottom.

If I click on refresh over & over, I can sometimes get the page to finish loading, but not always. This happens when I select a link from a Google search, when I select a link in my Favorites or Bookmarks or when I enter the url directly into the address bar. I can't make sense of it at all.

It happens to all websites, including this one, so I'm pretty sure it's not the security of a website that is giving me trouble. It happens when I try to go to Microsoft, HP, Dell or many other sites which I would consider safe.

Any help would be appreciated!


PS - I have two other computers accessing the internet through my router and neither one of them have this problem.

I have windows 98 with ie6 and firefox 2 installed. My problem is that oftentimes it takes 2-3 minutes to switch from one open window to another or to open a new web page. My computer whirs and clicks forever and while it is doing this I can't do anything else ecept press alt-ctl-del to end the process and even that takes a long time to accomplish.
At first I thought it was a problem with ie6 so I installed firefox. Firefox worked fine the first few days but then it began behaving like ie6 taking forever to navigate between open windows. I tried disconnecting from the internet by turning off my dsl modem but the 'puter just kept whirring and clicking.
I ran a reg scan with cc and it reported no issues.
Any ideas?

Hello everyone.

About two days ago, I went to sleep letting my computer finish an update to Windows Media Player 11. The next morning I found that my browsers no longer will finish loading any form of web page.

Yesterday I completed a virus scan to have found a trojan, but I'm no longer sure how much damage it could have caused, and I'm not even sure if the the trojan is the culprit. Here's all that I know:

- I'm running Windows XP Home, SP3
- Instant Messengers, like AIM, function properly.
- Firefox opens normally, begins to load the Google front page, and stops halfway through the communication process (IE just locks and crashes).
- Upon reboot, many of the programs checked on my startup list inside msconfig will not start up after all, among those being AIM, my wireless utility program, my anti-virus, and others.
- I've taken a look at my services but without knowing what was already on and already off, that was a dead end.
- my ex, and current roomate, had the same kind of behavior once, and the next day, the problem had went away. I don't think this is that simple.
- The two most current events have been installing, and thusly uninstalling WMP 11, and the fact that I cancelled my home phone line, who also was my past ISP, but I should have been on a completely different ISP.

I'm trying every option i can without having to install XP again. Once again, the behavior didn't begin until the computer had an automatic restart after installing WMP 11. Un... Read more

Hi, I am using my personal computer (at home) to handle lots of email and documents every night I come back from work. As such, I frequent Gmail almost everytime I turn on my computer.

OS: Windows XP SP3
Default Browser: Firefox 3.0.10
Antivirus Softwares: Avira Premium Security Suite 8, A-Squared Anti-Malware 4.5

Recently, Firefox took longer time to load a single webpage, even that simple Firefox (Google) startup page took about 20 seconds to load completely. And performing a search on Google.com took quite some time to fetch the results. What's even worse is that Gmail took forever to load... The time needed to open an unread email or delete an email can make me a cup of coffee.

I tried uninstallling Firefox and reinstalling it again. But it doesn't help in anyway.

I have performed several deep-scans using Avira and A-Squared but no viruses were found.

Disk defragmentation has been run for a couple of times already. Everything's still the same.

By the way, I have countless bookmarks in my Firefox. Could this be the problem?

Hope you can shed some light on this. It's quite frustrating when you need to wait for a quarter of hour to read a single email. Thanks in advance.

A:My Firefox is taking ages to load a page

Have you tried another browser to see if it is as slow as FF. Is your computer the only one connected to your internet, (ie, are there any other computers sharing your connection). If so have they been scanned for malware, and viruses. I would scan your computer, and any others on your network with malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Your bookmarks will have nothing to do with the slow down, I have about 700 bookmarks, and firefox works as advertised.

About a week or two ago, some computer security company called me on the phone and offered a service to clean up my computer. They told me to go to their site and take a look at the packages they offer...and I did...which was a mistake on my part.

Anyways, a day later, my computer started to take a very long time to load websites (from ff and ie). It would work fine at boot up, and maybe after 30mins to a couple hours, the problem (websites not loading/connection cannot be established) would show up.

I made a scan and couldn't detect anything, so I decided to format the comp (moved my documents into a separate hdd) and formatted. After formatting, I installed Kaspersky. Recently, I plugged in the hdd that had my documents. Kaspersky didn't detect anything, but now my browsers are taking forever to load/not loading websites.

Could that company have uploaded something onto my computer? Could the virus be in the documents I copied over (non system files)? The other computers in my house have no problems loading onto webpages.

Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.

Hi, welcome to TSF

If you can access the internet with Internet Explorer, and Firefox is not being blocked by your firewall, open Firefox and click File in the top left. Is there a tick next to 'Work Offline'?

Hi all.

Well I am experiencing very slow page loading times when I am in the normal mode of Firefox (I prefer Firefox but this also occurs in IE). When I switch to Firefox safe mode with addons disabled it is as fast as it should be. (Do not confuse with windows safe mode) Now the only addons that Firefox lists that it has installed is Norton IPS, And Norton Toolbar.(The addons were installed right after I upgraded to Norton 09 protection) I've disabled these both and yet my internet still takes the same amount of time to load.

I just have spent the last what, 4 1/2 days cleaning out my computer of spyware, adware, trojans, rootkits, and my Host file was also being hijacked and I replaced my host file with a clean one after I got rid of the virus causing it.

So I am almost sure I have no viruses left in my computer so they can't be causing this unless I am wrong.

So I turn to you for help now. Advice/Instructions on what to do? I need them!

Also here is what I am running.

Hello everyone! I have been trying to use AIM Mail with Mozilla Firefox but it appears as though the screen looks really strange and doesn't load properly. I think it's because it said the connection I was using was untrusted and asked me to add it into an exception thing that had to do with certificates. I didn't read it thoroughly, but apparently it seems that images on the log-in page don't load properly. The entirety of the page seems really white, although I can't give a good explanation of what the screen looks like. I don't know if this is linked with a second problem, but for some reason it doesn't let me log in either. How do you fix this problem?

I have an ancient eMachines T-5026. (Intel P-4 519 3.06Ghz single core Prescott)

I'm running XP-SP2, fully updated with the exception of SP-3. (If I install SP=3, I lose the ability to do a repair install. My AV product is AVG Free.

This thing's my go to erotica finder. (Trust me, I don't log in to my bank with it).

Anyway, it seems terribly slow at loading pages, with the CPU at, or pushing, 100% usage. I can't load more than one page at a time, or I get a "problem server reset before page loaded", type error. Once the other page(s) have loaded, a simple reload page command, establishes the connection.

Firkefox, (@ ver. 29.01), is the browser of choice, with "NoScript" installed.

I just did a repair install of the OS, which is the only way I could get it to reload the internet driver, (Intel 100/ Pro). That doesn't seem to have helped.

My question is, I want anybody's best opinion as to whether this level of performance is what I should expect as typical with this rig, or is it just plain worn out, and I should retire it with full military honors.

A:Slow Page Loading with Firefox

Try disabling no script. That may be eating up all your resources and slowing down the loading of webpages. If that doesnt work, try another browser like Chrome. I would try completely clean installing windows rather than repairing it since just repairing will not clear anything such as viruses off of the PC. Malware could be another culprit and clean installation will allow you to wipe it out.

Every single page I open in both IE7 and Firefox v2 opens twice, not in two separate tabs or windows but duplicated one above the other on the same tab. For example my homepage is Google so when this loads I get the usual - 'Google banner, Google search bar, hyperlinks' and then all of that again directly below.
With IE it also appears to open the program twice as I get two windows opening initially, but the second then disappears leaving the two-pages-in-one window.
It started doing this earlier today and I have tried rebooting, opening IE in no add-ons mode and run a full virus scan in mcafee but nothing...
Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey, I've been having something strange happen lately.

When I try to visit a site, it will sometimes say
"Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at xxx

It will successfully load the page after I hit refresh or "try again". This only happens in Firefox, not IE, and it seems to be completely random.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, I'm using Windows XP with SP2, I have Firefox upgraded to the latest release, my addons are Adblock Plus, Background image saver, IE View Lite, Image Zoom, Quick Restart, smart middle click, and URL fixer. With all those add-ons I would suspect they were conflicting... Somehow... But they've worked fine in the past.

A:Problem loading page in Firefox

Try running Firefox in safe mode.
Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode).
This disables all themes and runs default theme.
If it works, disable all your extensions (Tools> Add-ons) and re-enable them one at a time until you find the problem one.

I use a local html file and images as my homepage. It loads about 100 7k gif files. Before I upgraded to firefox 3 it would load instantly, also in internet explorer. I think I might have changed a setting somewhere or installed a mod which changed things and setting things back to default doesn't fix my problem. My computer is set up with these links so I can research things very quickly but this local web page is taking up to 5 seconds to load. Each image appears.. separately.. one after the other like falling dominoes like it is unable to load more than one image at a time from a local source. Is there any way to fix this?

A:Firefox 3 Local Page Loading



this local web page is taking up to 5 seconds to load.

I have to be honest is 5 seconds going to be that big of a deal in the big picture?

Also, are you running this file from a webserver on a local machine? If so you might want to make sure that there isn't anything going on there. What do you have your homepage set to in to tools section?

First off Happy New Year to everyone. Now for this annoying problem. I'm not sure if this is an add-on problem or what but I have been receiving this error message on quite a few web pages. See following

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.ad.yieldmanger.com
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Does anyone know how to correct this?

A:[SOLVED] FireFox problem loading page

the site works. if you are on a wireless connection it may be a problem with that. if not, i would recommend having your provider out to check out the system. try opening the page on a different browser and if it works on there just reinstall Mozilla and try again.

One thing that I notice different from IE is that pages seem to load slower! By this I mean, when a page comes up right away all the pictures are little boxes but the gradually come in one by one. This all happens pretty fast - couple seconds - but in IE, I could go to a page and all text and images came up at once and I rarely ever see the little boxes. I have a fast cable modem web connection.

I'm thinking it has something to do with the cache, or the way these temporary internet files are stored. Maybe firefox isn't storing them? I dont know if I have something set up wrong.

A:Another Firefox Question - Page Loading Speed

Read other 9 answers

I am running Firefox 25.0.1 and Win XP. I recently noticed that Firefox was reloading an old web page on a particular site. If I click reload while viewing that page, the correct (newer version) loads. The older version being loaded initially is no longer on the site so Firefox must be loading from a previously stored version. I have set up Firefox to always delete everything at the end of a session. I have also set up browser cache in about:config to browser.cache.check_doc_frequency = 1 so Firefox should be checking for a newer version every time. I also have an add-on that explicitly clears cache on demand.

Nothing I have done seems to change how Firefox behaves regarding this particular file/page.

The correct page loads correctly using IE, Opera and Safari so this appears to be unique to Firefox.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hello! Thank God for Safari...the only browser that is working for me right now. Here is what I know so far:

IE7 and Firefox (running on Acer 5360 Vista using wireless) will open and load ONE page. When I attempt to click on a link or go to another page (by typing in a new address in the address bar) the browser displays a loading bar which hangs at a point usually between half way loaded and 98% loaded. Then nothing happens. I still have cursor variance when mousing over links, etc. but NO FURTHER actions happen. No error pages or codes. A full virus scan turned up nothing.

I recently had AVG and Windows Firewall intercept an email based phishing attempt and two instances of detecting trojans in downloaded files (both sent to the virus vault) I was downloading the games manager from IWIN and I suspect it was picking up on their AD server that interrupts your game every 2 seconds until you get sick of that and pay for the game...I uninstalled all of that stuff.

Thanks in advance for help!

I was trying to read\download a page (eg.product specification sheet) from a website here and all I could view was a big colour block (black) page with no text?
Then a "pop up -see jpg image" window which would arrive\chime three times (after clicking OK) before the the page would become "static"​
using free-ware Adobe Reader 9 (Version 9.1.3)
See attached image for reader fault explanation
Edit:Anyone have any idea(s) why this might be occurring please? Is it the website I'm trying download\save the file from or is it a problem with my "reader"?

I am writing this on my lap top using Firefox. On my main pc every time I try to get on to Firefox a window comes up :
The proxy server is refusing connections
Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.
Then below it says
check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct
contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working
followed by the button Try Again.

How do I get back to being able to use Firefox normally?

I am having issues lately with Firefox. This isnt constant but happens intermittently waiting to load for 10 minutes then loading and working well for a few minutes before slowing to a crawl again. All pages load fine in IE when I test it at the same time.

Test pages were:
wikipedia - router page

All 4 showed loadtime in firefox. I started firefox in safe mode and also had the same issues with wait times. I dont know why it is just firefox and why it happens intermittently.

A related issue is music or youtube videos would stop playing after I played my first song or video. With youtube videos, the whole video downloads but would freeze after 2 seconds of playing. Works fine in IE, issue only happens in Firefox but corrects when I close and reopen browser.

Maybe reinstalling browser would fix it, but I would like to know why it is happening.

I am not running any firewall.
I am running 2 codec packs, ffdshow and vista codec pack.
cant think of anything else.

Hey chrisdab,

Sounds like it could be anything. I think you'd be better off with a new install than waste time trying to isolate the problems.

If you're running any nightlies you should expect some backward steps at times. What version of Firefox are you running? (Help > about)

I updated this weekend to AVG 8.0 (free) from AVG 7.5 (free) and although it says that it's supposed to be quicker 7.5 took about 1 hour 45 minutes and this is taking a minimum of 3 hours!
Is this right and is there some way to change what or how it scans and not risk it missing something?

I just got a new Sony K13 notebook with Windows XP Home and now when I boot up it takes forever for the icons in the system tray to appear. When they finally appear I cant see the icons for sounds and power although I have them set to appear. What can be the problem as after I installed every program I restarted to make sure that that program wasnt causing the problem. This happened before to me and I had to reinstall everything on my computer which really wasnt that big of a deal since I just got it.

Last year I built a new machine and it has run like clockwork since day one except for one thing: Once it's been unplugged then restarted it takes about 15 minutes to boot up again.(XP pro) I have replaced the motherboard battery several times, no difference. It's an EVGA 650i Ultra mobo, NF66 with Q6700 quad core cpu . I have tried everything. I bought another identical motherboard and it did exactly the same thing. I have flashed the BIOS, no change. It currently has 2 GB of pc6400 RAM, dual channel. I have had 4 GB in it, no change. It will do this agonizingly slow bootup for a few weeks then start up suddenly normal in about 46 seconds. In the meantime it's extremely annoying. I have run setup after unplug/replugging it too and that has no effect either. I'm open to suggestions. ONce it's booted up it runs perfectly. It has no malware or viruses; I'm rabid about protecting it.

Hello, Iím a total noob here so Iím sorry if this has already been addressed. I did search and couldn't find a similar problem.

When I try to install any program its taking a very long time to start the installation(about 6-10 minutes it just sits in the taskbar and does nothing). The first couple of times it happened I just assumed there was something wrong with the program and aborted the install. After talking to some people that had no trouble with it I decided to just let it run and eventually it did start to install. Once the install actually starts it installs at a "normal" speed. I first noticed it while installing ventrilo ver2.1 (which once installed runs fine btw) but it seems to be doing it with ANYTHING I try to install.
Taskmanager says cpu usage for any "setup" program that I've tried = 0% during the time that nothing seems to be happening.

Things I've tried without any improvement...

Uninstalled ventrilo 2.1 (subsequntly reinstalled it)

I ran a full system scan with Norton av, with most recent updates, its clean (or as clean as Norton gets)

Norton "one button checkup" cleans registry etc.

Defrag(less than 1% fragmentation)

tried to do a system restore to before I noticed the symptoms and was not able

OS xp home

HP 2.1 P4, 160 gid HD, 1 gig dimms ram, MSI mobo the whole thing seems to have run flawlessly until this came along.

Hi I have been having trouble with this thing booting up.
Yesterday I decided do unhook all the hardware one by one
and I found the problem,The mouse,Awhile back I was having
problems with the system and during when I was having the
problems I got a new mouse so I figured the booting problem
was to do with the first problem.
Come to find out it is the mouse,hopefully it is just a compatability
problem or just a matter of the mouse company(LOGITECH)
helping me out tomorrow on monday.
I tried to download a driver from them but it did not help.
Any one have any ideas I could try?
Thank's Doug

A:Taking forever to boot up.


go into your device manager and look for any yellow alerts, check the view tab, check "show hidden devices"
if there is more than 1 mouse listed, remove it.

i'm checking for errors on my secondary HDD and it's been stuck around the same spot for like forever (it's like 3 hrs into the error checking). B4 checking for errors, I already know that the HDD has a SMART event. If CHKDSK is taking forever, does it also mean that my HDD is gonna fail?

EDIT: finally it's done after like 4 hrs.

A:CHKDSK taking forever on 60 GB HDD.

How many gigabytes of data was there to check. My external Hard Disk has 248 gigs of data and it took 114 seconds to finish running Check Disk. In the end I got the following message.

4 hours seems a lot on the high side and needs to be further investigated.
