My browser has been freezing?
Topic: Method problem solving using computers
July 17, 2019 / By Katryna Question:
We just bought a bundle of internet security with Webroot and ever since we got it, my browser (Firefox 4) has been running very slow and freezes, and sometimes it refuses to let me switch tabs while one is loading. It never used to do that before. What can I do to resolve this problem?

Uninstall unwanted add-ons:
First thing that you should do to fix Mozilla Firefox crashes is to uninstall unwanted add-ons installed. Some websites forcefully install toolbars or add-ons that cause your browser to crash often.
Scan System for viruses:
If you don't have antivirus installed on your system then malware can intercept smooth communication of browser and operating system. Also make sure that antivirus program that you are using is updated. Remember to clean your system with some powerful antivirus program.
Fix Windows Registry:
Browser related setting is stored in the registry database of operating system. You may receive various problems when registry entries related to browser are corrupted, missing or damaged.
There are two methods to fix this problem. One of them is to manually modify your registry and another is to use third party registry cleaner and PC optimizer software. Manual modification is not recommended as it is complicated. You may opt for second method that is to use third party registry cleaner and PC optimizer.

Use CCleaner, Comodo Firewall, and Avast antivirus or AVG antivirus
All are free and rate high. Been using it for years and will not slow Firefox browser.
Webroot is system resource hogging.

the internet browser is free. :). the only thing is that is really weak. you can surf the web and read articles. you can't play flash games on any site though. There are some specific wii-oriented sites that let you play popular flash games and watch some videos. I don't reccomend playing flash games on your wii because the wii-mote screws up all your controls. as for the keyboard, i believe that you can use any USB keyboard, no specific one was ever mentioned. way faster than on screen typing
