Since I installed the latest update, Firefox is slow accessing web pages. Chrome is quick as ever. Unless this is a known problem and there's a plan to fix it I must switch to Chrome.

Do you get the same behavior in safe mode?

What about if you create a new user profile to test with?

Nope. Not here running version 60.0.3 under Windows 10.

What security software is running on that system?

On Windows there are no significant known problems with speed. However most antivirus software have a web shield / man in the middle component which makes trouble. If you use an antivirus other than Windows Defender, as a test, get Firefox to bypass its web shield or disable the web shield. For some antivirus software this page tells how to change the settings: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/er ... OWN_ISSUER
