Repeatedly I get this message across my browser:

I feel it would be way more helpful if it told which web page is slowing the browser. Can this be addressed in an update or something?

Moving to Firefox Support.

You are clear that we are not Mozilla and can't address such things in an update, right?

Do you have many pages open when that appears? Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

I would have expected that Mozilla looked in here...

I've never launched in safe mode. And I do have a number of pages open at once.

But the problem seems time-related. Even with fewer pages open, as hours of use pass the whole thing slows to a stop and then I get that message.

Very seldom and it seems less lately than in the past.

Please try Safe Mode to see if that helps to identify possible sources for the problem.

Okay... so how do I start Firefox in 'safe mode'?

Or can I change to 'safe mode' on the run?
