Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox

Well, the odd thing is that even on old clunker single core machines, nvda seems to be still quite low in demand and fast. There has to be more to this.
Tell me have you looked at what the processor is doing. I turn off all power saving of course here as not only does this seem to result in multi cores runing slow, but the windows explorer never seems to catch up with what I'me actually hearing as selected.
It does when you make the processor cores run faster. I'm not sure how to do this in 10 yet though.

sorry friend, but I have not spoken in NVDA crashes.

my laptop does not have any problem whatever it is.
everything works perfectly.
NVDA is becoming heavier and it is that is the truth.
jaws works perfectly, NVDA is slow and heavy.

I hope I have made myself understood.

Were you able to figure out that crashes were in the Firefox or nvda. Typically, the crashes or freezing event to your machine if you open several application simultaneously that may leads to consumed memory or the RAM. Also, were you able to full restart your machine in order to clear up some program that was running in the background and this steps could helps and suffice your concerns.

NVDA is not just slow in browsers, but also in the system.
after browsing for a while, it starts to get slow and I have to turn off and on to get normal again.
and my pc is a good machine with I5 processor, 4 RAM ..
with jaws these occurrences do not happen.
I now use the jaws 17 full-time for these reasons.
jaws is not slow in any situation like this occurred with NVDA.

I only use 3 extras.
I do not need anything else.

NVDA is getting slower and every a new version.
this makes me worry.

I think the team of NVDA has to think about this with more seriously.

Yes, but I've had this behavior in all three of the main browsers, with both
NVDA and Jaws, so I just close and re-open Firefox, my main browser, once in
a while, and only use the others when necessary.

System: Windows 7, NVDA 2016.2, Firefox, any version.
This has always been an ongoing problem, but it seems to be more prevalent
If you have a number of tabs open in Firefox, NVDA will begin to slow down
appreciably in the program. Responses to key presses are delayed and using
the browser becomes problematic and inefficient. The only solution is to
restart firefox.
In previous versions of NVDA, this decrease in responsivness took a while to
manifest--sometimes I could work for a whole day and NVDA would not slow
down until the next.
However, now it barely takes six to ten hours for this slowness to occur.
The only way to reproduce this step is to to work in Firefox for a while,
with a number of tabs open.
I do not know if this same slowness occurs in Internet Explorer, Chrome or
I would like to know if others have experienced this decrease in
performance, and what--if any--solutions are available to counteract this
