    This site's web page I have trouble with in firefox

    http://www.registercitizen.com/gener...s-open-borders

    When I go there and try to scroll, it refuses to respond, then jerks down.
    All I wanted was to read the article, and it was stopping me from this.
    I have not seen a page this bad for a long time.
    I can not drag the scroll bar, everything is like molasses there even several minutes later.
    So whats up with it?
    How smoothly does it work for you?

    Works fine for me(firefox 27, Ubuntu 12.04.?), though I have no comment on the content.

    Edit: Forgot to mention I do have an ad-blocker on as well as flashblock, though.
    For what it's worth.

    No problem whatsoever. FF27, Ubuntu 13.10.

    Edited: I have an adblocker as well but I don't use flashblock, just set flash to "ask to activate" in Tools > Plugins so basically it is the same as flashblock, but built into FF.

    That might be it, on firefox I have no add blocker.
    I usually use chrome with addblock plus.

    The few times I use Firefox, it is much slower than Chrome.
    I have Chrome setup to reload tabs. Chrome crashed with 25 tabs open (stopped responding) so thought I would try Firefox.

    Use adblock edge instead of adblock plus on FF.

    I am using Firefox 27.0 and Adblock Plus without any problems on that website.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    I see. I disabled ad blocker to try this again. There are apparently a lot of new boxes asking to activate flash, since you don't have adblocker and flash loads automatically no wonder it is slow.

    So get an adblocker. You don't need flashblock for newer versions of Firefox, the option to launch flash on demand is built in, go to Tools > Add-ons > Plugins and configure flash to "ask to activate"

    If you have many tabs use FF for sure because the tabs are not loaded until you actually click on it so it can support a lot more open tabs than Chrome. On my machine Chrome takes forever to start and uses a lot of memory with 30 tabs or so but I can keep 100+ tabs on FF easily.

    Aye, I just happen to have flashblock out of legacy, or from a long time ago.
    Wells fine though, still.

    Works here with or without extensions enabled on FF27. The drop down menus grab about one-third of the screen, but that's all I find. (I do have smooth scrolling disabled.)
