    I upgraded from Firefox 50 to 51. Installed in new folder, did not remove FF50, made 51 default. Today very slow, hourglass cursor, click over and over then in about a minute multiple pages come up, all slow...email, Google, folders, etc. Warnings wanting to restart Firefox and report plug-in and add-on troubles. If I caused this what do I do?

    Hmmm, working find here.

    In Firefox, click the Menu bar (looks like a little hamburger, three stacked horizontal bars, over on the right), select "Help", then "Restart with Add-ons Disabled".

    Any of the same problems after it restarts?

    Seems fine now. At first had some trouble with plug-ins it said were dangerous or something like that. I still have the version 51 but went back to using version 50. When installing new versions I used to keep new versions in different folder because I have had to go back to previous ones which were not always available. My folder is Firefox/51 and Firefox/50. Or actually Mozilla Firefox and a 51 folder inside it containing Firefox version 51.
    I believe I did disable the add-ons and plug-ins that were giving trouble. I like v. 50 though.

    By Verizon Usage, and I know nothing about this, but have heard that many users online at once can or does interfere with or slow down speed and operstion. I have only heard or read this and do not know if it is true. I have Verizon High speed internet and it has lately had slower to come up pages for browsers, searches, and web pages and I wwas just looking for a possible explanation for this recent erratic behavior. It is fast enough and satisfactory for me but I wondered why it has become variable at different times or days. I thought maybe if lots of people are accessing it that could be a reason. Maybe, maybe not?

    Run Speed Test and post the results. Run it different times of the day.
    What are the speeds suppose to be compared to what the test show.

    How far into your monthly cycle are you?
    If close to the end they may have you throttled.

    Have you rebooted the modem and router if you have one?

    Have you contacted them to see if there are any issues in the area or are they working on the lines someplace that could be affecting you?

    Is Firefox the only browser that is affected?
