Removing Firefox Browser Add-Ons
According to the Mozilla Firefox support website, removing unnecessary add-ons and toolbars from your web browser can speed up its performance considerably. If Mozilla Firefox takes too long to load, a pop up message will appear at the bottom of the browser indicating the problem. When you click on the option provided in this message, you will be directed to the Mozilla Firefox tech support website.
There, on the Mozilla Firefox support web page, you will see some of the reasons for slow performance of the browser and tips for fixing the problem. One of the solutions mentioned on the page will be a complete reset of the Firefox application, which will remove all the add-ons, browser data, application settings, and malware infections, and restore the browser settings back to its initial state.
This option will improve the functioning of Firefox browser, but will remove all your saved passwords, browsing history, and any other data stored in the browser. Therefore, resetting the browser application like this should be your last resort.

Yet another option mentioned on the Firefox support page for improving the browser performance will be the removal of unnecessary add-ons and toolbar applications. Adding many add-ons and toolbars might make your browsing easier, but these add-ons will influence the overall performance of the application. Overload of toolbars and add-ons reduce the speed and performance of the browser. Therefore, you should occasionally de-clutter the browser by getting rid of the unwanted add-ons and toolbars you see there.
To do that, just go to Tools menu in Mozilla Firefox and click on the Add-ons option in the context menu. It will open the Add-ons Manager on your computer screen. Select those add-ons that are useless, or that which you use rarely, and un-install them one by one. For this, click on the add-on and select Remove or Uninstall option.
Leave behind only those add-ons, which you consider necessary for your browser’s functioning. Restart Firefox browser to complete the un-installation process. From now on, remember to keep the number of add-ons in your Firefox browser to a minimum.
Also, remember to update Firefox from time to time, or just enable the automatic update option in your browser. Delete browsing history, if you no longer need it. For more tips on improving the performance of the Firefox browser, get in touch with our tech support team right away.
