I observed a lot of crashes with firefox 21 for example just going to www.thesaurus.com
I also use ABP to block the AD, but it does not seem to be the problem.

Just went there with ABP -- works fine. If you just updated firefox, you may need to reboot the machine - I've seen stability problems before reboot

Seems a bit extreme, this isn't Windows. For sure, you quit Firefox and make sure it's not running at all, after an update. I've certainly seen Firefox screw up if I tried to use it while it was still running during
an update. But I've never had to reboot for it.

It can take as long as 20 seconds to scroll the screen, which tends to scroll in large jumps, even when smooth scroll is enabled. The problem is worse when smooth scrolling is enabled, but is bad enough even when it is not.

Other applications seem to have scrolling slowed somewhat when Firefox has many windows open. It looks to me like a memory swapping issue, but I have no evidence beyond my gut. Right now Firefox has 30 tabs open on all its windows. Performance is bad, though not intolerable.

In the past I used to think why Firefox can be slow when it's loading pages. Now I've found something that makes a noticeable difference: the addon "ghostery" that blocks "trackers," which their website defines as
page elements - scripts, pixels, iframes, etc. - that are normally invisible to the user. What "trackers" seem to be all about is marketing, and apparently they've been wasting a lot of my time.
http://www.ghostery.com

What's especially interesting to me is a list that shows the trackers that have been blocked for each website I visit. For example, the intro page for cnn.com includes 20 such unwanted visitors with names like "Audience Science," "Dynamic Science," and "Scorecard Research."

Looks for firefox version (my current version is firefox-29.0-5.fc20.x86_64) favicons don't work. I'm sure that in some earlier firefox versions they were supported.

This issue seems to be distribution independent. Anyone has any idea?
