I think this would be true of any type of internet browser. If you delete everything but passwords this will improve performance. You can also do this through Disk cleanup within file explorer.

If you still have the installer for Firefox version 52, you might want to remove Firefox and try reinstalling it. I'm using Firefox 52 with Windows 10, and am having no sluggishness.

It looks like it's version 52 something. I didn't get the rest of the numbers. It's really frustrating. For instance, i'll be on the gooel home page and i'll depress the alt key. It should say file, but it doesn't, i'll have to hit it a few times for it to work. Just slow annoying things that quite honestly shouldn't be happening.

What version of Firefox do you use? There are still issues with Jaws

apply with versions starting with 57.
It is recommended that you run the latest version of Firefox ESR
(extended service release), this version is usually intended for
businesses who want the latest security updates but not necessarily all the latest features.

Hey guys,

OK, yet another problem with jfw acting sluggish with yet no
explaination with firefix. I am running jaws 18. Lately i am loading
firefox, to google which is my home page, I'll alt tab over to it and
start tabbing around and it just literally says nothing. It's almost
like it has to focus on it, it seems to be a lot slower. Anyone else
seen something similar? It's pretty annoying to say the least.

Cheers,
Jed
