    Exclamation Super Slow Firefox

    Well, I've read up on it and a lot of people have the same problem as me, pretty much any version of Ubuntu on any Computer; firefox is super, super slow. Almost as bad as dial-up I have Natty 64-bit. All the updates. Firefox works fine on windows. But on Linux it's so slow, any fix, work-around for this problem someone can hook me up with?

    If by slow you mean Firefox is taking too long to load any pages, then you need to disable ipv6 in Firefox advanced preferences.

    See instructions at http://www.webgapps.org/tutorials/fi...-and-solutions

    I also recommend that you read my Preferences Tweaks tutorial.
