Since I downloaded this last security fix, firefox has become as slow as molasses. And it acts up in various ways, all of which I can't remember. But the scroll bar at the right doesn't work like it did. When I hold my cursor just above or below the two arrows, instead of quickly scrolling all the way, it scrolls only a little way, so that I have to keep clicking to get it to scroll all the way. And often I can no longer highlight a sentence by scrolling over it with the shift key down. There are other things that don't work at they used to, but the main problem is the slowness.

I want to get rid of this version and replace it with an older, faster version. The previous version I had, which I guess was 12 rather than 13, worked okay for me but if there is a faster version I would like to get it, and take my chances on the resultant security risk.

How do I go about doing that? I understand I need to uninstall the current version and then install the replacement. But where can I find an older but faster version?

Thanks, grandpaw7

It may be an idea to start with some troubleshooting, using Firefox's Standard Diagnostic.

This is the index of Firefox's Releases.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.
