    Default Firefox slow down

    I have been having problems with Firefox ver. 3.01 and ZoneAlarm Pro version:7.0.483.000
    TrueVector version:7.0.483.000
    Driver version:7.0.483.000
    Anti-spyware engine version:5.0.189.0
    Anti-spyware signature DAT file version:01.200807.430

    I have noticed that recently, last few weeks, Firefox loads new pages really slowly. Some eBay pages can take minutes to load on a virgin 'up to 20' broadband connection. My average connection speed is 9.5 so that's not the problem. I have to reload the page at least four times to get any reaction. As soon as I turn off ZA, presto hey! speedy loading!

    All permissions set to highest for Firefox. Thought I had a problem with Java but un-installed all versions and re-installed with latest. All to no avail. Anyone out there have any ideas? Used to fly along like a Ferrarri, sadly it's now like Ford Prefect.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Update

    Having Googled this problem I have found the remedy with many thanks to Reginald Freeman, see link: - http://rfreeman.newsvine.com/_news/2...28792#c2345567

    Here is the magical formula that saved us:

    * Open Zone Alarm and go to the "Program Control" section.Click the "Programs" tab and find Firefox in the list. Next, right click Firefox and choose "Options."
    * Once the "Options" are visible, find "Enable Privacy for this program." Uncheck the box and close ZA windows. You're done!

    Dont ya just hate it when some clever cloggs beats you to a remedy

    Default Re: Firefox slow down

    I am running zonealarm free firewall and do not get the "option" link with a right click...(in program control) Just "add/remove" options

    Here's something that puzzles me. I too have had slow Firefox since installing v 3.0.1
    I found references to firewall conflict and
    I found a suggestion to use program control and reset permissions to "?", then using the zonealarm popups, re-enable Firefox access.
    But I discovered that even after resetting to all ????, Firefox still opened, so I tried resetting to all XXXX and guess what? Firefox still accesses internet...I tried reboots, etc.
    The "lock" feature works to shut down internet access.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks
