2217 and Firefox
« on: April 21, 2015, 03:57:26 PM »
Is anyone else noticing that this beta is creating an adverse affect on Firefox.
Firefox is now freezing and not really crashing but is slower and mostly freezing...frequently.

Since you don't mention what version of firefox, part of the equation is missing.

I don't find any issue with firefox 37.0.1, I have yet to update to the latest Firefox 37.0.2 version.

I had trouble with v37.0.1 and updating to 37.0.2.
Updating to 37.0.2 was super slow. Right now I'm keeping a
close eye on it. I was/am also having other issues on my Win8.1,
if this keeps up it might lead to a clean install of avast or, worse case scenario,
use a image backup of my system.

Not had any issues on FF 37.0.2 and 2217 so far, but I didn't have a problem before updating firefox.

Whew! Four reboots later and all is well. Two of the reboots took a while. The third was quicker. The fourth was fantastic.
If all else fails...reboot...reboot...reboot...reboot.

I was beginning to think about doing a restore using a backup image.

@ DavidR    Thanks for "pushing" taking regular/weekly system images.
                  There are there if you need them. Thankfully I didn't...this time.

Don't reboot a fifth time.
Before you know it, the system has rebooted even before you told it to do so. ;D
