Anyone with ideas why FF is so laggy and slow. I have done all the speed up things advised but still it is as slow as 10 years ago.
I tried Brave and wow it is blisteringly fast in loading pages and rendering so use that more than any other browser. I can have 50 tabs open with no loss of speed.
So what is the problem?
Am I missing something?

Using on Win10.

NB. Have been a FF user from the beginning and currently using quantum.
In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The Cuckoo Clock.

Since you didn't say where you found the "speed up" advise we don't know what you have tried. Rather than"resetting" the profile, have you tried starting Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode?
If no improvement using Safe Mode, do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?
and ... on_Windows

Likewise, in what way & where is it?
