In version 38.0.5, Firefox adds Pocket, a feature to save your links to the Pocket cloud service and access them from all your devices that use your Firefox account. Personally I feel this is unnecessary since you can sync bookmarks.

Another feature added to Firefox for desktop is the Reader mode, which works similar to the Reader mode on Firefox for Android. It gets rid of all the clutter and streamlines a webpage for easy reading.

I will keep updating as updates keep coming.

From what I know, Firefox lost some market share this quarter. They are trying to get some traction by starting their FoxYeah campaign to promote themselves.

BTW, has anyone used Firefox Hello and Pockets?

Try creating a new profile and see.

Start Firefox with -P. A profile selection window will one. Create a new one and select that one. Now Firefox will open using the new profile. Check if the problem persists. If it does not that means that some add-on is problematic.

I would suggest that you close tabs that you don't need.

Which version of Firefox are you using BTW? There have been a lot of improvements in recent versions.
