Description

I had a particularly nasty PC lockup where everything froze and there were little flickers all over the screen. Since then, having TB on my browser has causes constant freezes. I uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, with several different versions, and it keeps doing the same thing.

The Frederick, what OS and what version of Firefox?

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by The Frederick

Win 7 64x, not sure which version of Firefox, I think it was 8. I usually use the most recent version of Fx, so, whatever was out when I opened the ticket.

This sounds like a problem with your OS. You might try Tails: https://tails.boum.org/.

Otherwise, I suppose it could be just bad performance due to a slow Tor circuit in combination with #5279...
