    Default Re: Firefox slow after install ZA free firewall

    There is actually nothing in ZAfree that can slow firefox. Probably its the third party toolbar installed with ZA. See below how to troubleshoot firefox issues (thanks to walkerl for this guide)

    Best way to troubleshoot Firefox problems. This will help you determine if an Extension, Plugin or a Firefox setting is causing the problem:

    You may need to use '''Safe Mode''' to locate the problem (read this carefully):

    Firefox Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode that disables Extensions and some other features of Firefox. If you are using a theme, switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes before starting Safe Mode. When entering Safe Mode, do not check any items on the entry window, just click "Continue in Safe Mode". Test to see if the problem you are experiencing is corrected.

    If the problem does not occur in Safe Mode then disable all of your Extensions and Plug-ins and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time (or half of them at a time to narrow down the possibilities) until the problem reappears. You MUST close and restart Firefox after EACH change via File > Exit, then restart Firefox and test. You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Safe Mode entry window, if you choose, but then you will need to re-enable add-ons (individually) in Firefox using Tools > Add-ons > Extensions, click the Extension, click Enable, close and re-start Firefox after each change.
