    I have found Firefox to be very slow since the last update, particularly when switching between tabs there has been a significant lag.

    I googled the problem and found this on Mozilla's support pages:

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-slow-after-updating-firefox-38

    A suggested solution was to disable hardware acceleration (instructions are provided on the support pages), I tried this and there seems to have been an improvement. Perhaps others may find this useful.

    It's pretty bad that Mozilla didn't inform users of this known problem.

    I've found Firefox pretty laggy for the last couple of few years. I moved over to Opera and am very happy with it - I'm surprised it hasn't got a greater market share to be honest.

    I had the same thing and migrated to Chrome.

    Try disabling each extension that you're using in turn, one might be causing it to slow down?
