    Firefox very buggy in 13.04

    So I just upgraded to 13.04 Base install with nothing extra. Firefox 23.0

    The Close/Minimize/Window buttons on firefox dont work, and the general environment is slow to respond. Clicking on links takes 10-15 secs to open, there is a delay when changing tabs. Overall the speed is very slow compared to the 12.04 environment.

    Is this a know bug? I havent been able to find anything on it.

    What is a "base install"? Is it like a minimal install?
    Is Firefox the only program that doesn't show the "Close/Minimize/Window buttons"?
    What do you mean by "the general environment is slow to respond"? Are other programs slow as well?
    Can you provide some details about your set-up? CPU? RAM? Graphics?

    I'm not noticing any degraded performance of any program in 13.04 relative to 12.04 or 12.10.

    I don't know if you installed the latest Java plugin into your Firefox but I found that to be a problem on a number of PCs where I have done it. Symptoms were similar as you described - FF slow and hanging while the rest of the environment responded fine. I had to back step one revision on Java to cure this problem.
