Other Strategies to Make Internet Browsing Using Firefox Faster

- 2Remove history of sites that you don't really need all the time.If you happen to go through a site that's rather slow and you do not really need to visit that site again or you do not need it often, it is better to remove that from your history. Sometimes, when too many sites have log-in details from your computer, that will tend to drag down the speed of your surfing.
- 3Avoid opening more than 5 Firefox Windows at the same time, especially when the sites that you visit are full of photos and videos.This will significantly affect your overall internet activity. At some point, it may even lead your computer to crash or restart involuntarily.
What Slow Internet Browsing Also Tell You
When your internet browsing appears to be slower than usual, you need to pay attention to it not only because it is bothersome, but also because it may be telling you something else that you need to act upon. Here are some of the possibilities why your internet browsing is slow:
- 1Your computer is infected by a virus.Certain viruses affect the overall system of your computer, thereby making it slow. If you notice that your computer suddenly became slower than usual, you may want to do a complete virus scan to find out if there are indeed viruses. This needs to be addressed quickly as it may be detrimental to the files within your computer.
- 2You may be monitored by a spyware.Slow internet browsing is one of the most common symptoms of spyware presence in a computer. This is because the spyware would basically copy and go through all of your internet activities. It also tends to save all of your log in credentials. As soon as you notice this, have your computer checked right away and as much as possible, avoid logging in to sensitive sites such as banks until this issue has been resolved.Advertisement
