    Firefox Issues 5th Jun 17 at 5:30 PM
    Hi

    is anyone having issues with Firefox? It is dreadfully slow. Keeps jamming and often not loading for ages on bookmarked tabs. Don't think it is a computer issues as have tried out internet explorer and everything working really fast. Any advice or help would be appreciated

    Yes! The last few weeks it's been freezing a lot after it's been open for a while and I have to force close it and start again. I've been trying to work out if it was actually Firefox or something else on my computer, but I think it must be FF. Sorry I can't offer any help but I'll let you know if I get it fixed!

    Thanks for this info - I have now done this ( I think- although the passwords do not appear to have synced) my next question is....what is the best autofill for Chrome?

    Change to "Firefox ESR" it will resolve the issues
    Yes, I know there is no "R" in the word dream in my username - it was setup in memory of my grandson
