Do you find your beloved browser running slow lately? You might think that it may have something to do with your computer or with Mozilla's Firefox itself, but the developer is aiming to set the record straight by publishing a list of add-ons that have been found to considerably slow down the browser. That's right; it's not you or your PC or Mozilla. It's them.
The browser race has always been a tough and competitive one. Lately I found Firefox to be too slow for my taste so I switched to another browser. I thought that it might have been my computer (because God knows I've overused and abused my PC that turns four years old in a few months' time.) After reading this bit of news, I ran my trusty Firefox and removed all the add-ons I had installed over the past few years and boom: it ran as fast as when I first got hooked to the browser. I'm insanely loyal to Firefox so I've decided to switch back. You can try doing the same for your Firefox and choose the add-ons to install more thoroughly next time.
This must have been a problem that Mozilla found extremely frustrating because now they've published and released add-ons to Firefox along with a figure of how much it slows down the browser. That's right, they've gone the public-shaming route by posting up the List of Shame of the add-ons that make Firefox literally crawl when it starts up right over here: Slow Performing Add-ons.
