Re: Firefox Lagging and Freezing

I sure haven't found any other fix.  Here is the beta webpage, there really isn't much to the install, it ks just like a regular install, except when you're done and reboot, the beta should come up.

I am having the same issue.  Are there any known workarounds known without giving the Beta 2019 a try? I have never used a beta version.  How do I download it?  Thanks!

I just upgraded to the 2019 beta at home, and the problems seems to have completely disappeared.

I’m having the same issues with Firefox and at times also with Internet Explorer. Just an FYI

I’m noticing it, too, and one site, radio.com, crashes firefox, and I have to kill it with Task Manager.

I’m wondering if anybody else is having this problem.

I’m running Firefox version 62, latest version of JFW, and Windows 10.

I’ll be arrowing down through a web page, and all of a sudden JAWS just stops reading. Sometimes it comes back after a few seconds, but not always.

I especially notice it when reading the Boston Globe in NFB Newsline on the web.

 

Also when I’m using Google Docs, I’m noticing an irritating lag when I hit up or down arrow in a document.

 

Any thoughts on how to remedy this?
