    Funny thing is that this site is one of the worst offenders for ads slowing a site.

    I actually recommend it in feedback to Microsoft that this is their test site.

    It crashes the mobile Edge in about 60 seconds once the page is fully loaded. And links won't work until the whole page is loaded. Catch 22.

    This is on a 635. On a 640 it loads just as slowly but only crashes now when embedded videos are used.

    As I said... classic test case site. Sadly.

    ADBlock works fine for me too with FF in Windows 10 64bit Pro.

    Use your hosts file. No need for extra browsers or add-in crap.

    Um....Attachment 114749

    It's not a Windows 10 problem. Have you attempted to update your extensions or your firefox?
    Yes.

    It wasn't an update for Firefox, or the extensions, it was a complete reinstallation of the extensions.

    My apologies to all concerned. Firefox extensions do work with Windows 10. All of mine were disabled, and i had to reinstall them one at a time. Now i can stay with Windows 10, and just use Firefox, until Edge is ready to play with the big boys. Again, many thanks to all.

    No. I've partitioned the hard drive on my MacBook Pro. 350gbs. for Mac, and 150gbs for Windows 10. My internet browser is Firefox, as Edge blows, and my homepage is MSN.
    Try using Ublock - light weight, fast and efficient :)

    Yes it does. Just not with edge browser. But there is a way to block the ad popups.

    It's not a W10 problem. I use ABP on Opera in my laptop running W10 and it works great.
