Yoga 13 Firefox slow as hell.

2013-11-10, 16:09 PM

Is it just me or is Firefox slow as hell on this thing? I'm talking about page rendering and scrolling speed. Heck, even as I'm typing this, I'm experiencing lag with the characters appearing on the screen. Chrome behaves better but still lags behind much older and slower machines I use on a daily basis. IE Metro seems to be perfectly fine, but I rarely use it. Even Safari in a OSX Mavericks VM running on this same system even seems to be faster.

My desktop firefox seems responsive the rare times I use it. I mostly use desktop IE, and have to say there are new bouts of occasional freezes... I can't even change tabs for about a minute. There seems some responsiveness lag, so when I scroll with a finger swipe, it gets treated sometimes as a double tap magnify as if it is doing slow sampling.


Maybe firefox would do the same if I used it as much. I checked my lenovo pointer driver for a newer version, but the old one is called current. I wonder if some windows update caused this delay mode. I wish I knew how to turn off the double tap magnify gesture anyway...

Firefox just doesn't behave well in Windows 8.  Touch and swiping is very sketchy at best.  I used primarily IE on my Y2P.
