Firefox Tab Freeze Fix/Security
FireFox Tab Freeze Fix/Security. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to browse the Web or work across multiple website url’s or browser tabs and then your browser freezes. The mouse won’t move or it randomly jumps all over the page and your left wondering what is going on? You are puzzled because you have installed anti-virus software and even additional protection like HTTPS EVERYWHERE to bat those unwanted peeping eyes or cookies out of sight and still your Browser like FireFox or IE freezes.
Well, here is some good news the fix is WaterFox a 64-BIT browser based on Mozilla’s free and open source platform built by (Alex Kontos) a 16 year old student. I did read the reviews and even after reading was skeptical but I can truly say WOW! The speed of Firefox has greatly improved with extended tabs and video loading speed across all platforms.
One small hint…when downloading if you already have pre-installed settings and chosen Add-ons and or Plugins choose or opt for “CUSTOM” install as this will list and maintain all current ‘enabled’ Add-Ons and plugins already in use. A great feature is that it automatically deletes disabled plugins and add-ons a feature FireFox does not provide. Firefox, Google Chrome or any browser of choice are only safe, secure and reliable with knowledge and added protection. No browser is perfect! For instance, why would FireFox who boasts allegience to ‘Privacy’ not have a DISABLE button for unwanted plugins? No worries, I still appreciate FireFox but even more now WaterFox.
An extra search and security tip set your favourite search engine as default then set tabs into Duck Duck Go or another encrypted search engine you trust, this also gives you an assortment of search engine options. For great security advice see article below. Also with Waterfox browser which uses ECOSIA search partnership…ECOSIA is VERY difficult to delete and is known for malicious injection browser settings. Read this article on how to remove ECOSIA as Waterfox is worth the download but ECOSIA falls short of being security and user friendly.
