My big problem is that everytime when I download something to whole browser will freeze for a few seconds and sometimes even over 10 sec which just takes a lot of time away when I'm downloading a lot so how can I fix this odd problems? Other browsers don't have that issue.

thanks

Could you be a bit more specific? Are you saying that when you click on a link to download, it takes up to 10 seconds to start the download, or do you mean something else?

Have you tried not downloading all at once? Just one at a time...

Firefox is in no way a finished complete piece of software & never will be.

As such there's always bugs & compatibility issues, some get fixed others don't.

It may simply not like your PC's configuration, like your firewall, antivirus software or other apps your running at the same time.

I experience frequent little problems while using Firefox, sometimes the problem shows up on all my PC's, sometime's just one PC. Keep in mind I run both Intel & AMD based PC's & Firefox isn't the only software that acts up.

I find Acrobat reader to have far more problems than Firefox any day of the week.

What version of FF are you using?
Also, does it happen to be one certain type of file (.exe, .pdf, etc), or any type of file that causes the slowdown?

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

That will happen if your download history (in the download manager) gets too big. To fix it (if this is indeed the problem), to go to Tools > Downloads and hit Clean Up. Then go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Download History, and set Remove files from the Download Manager to either Upon successful download or When Firefox exits.

I use Upon successful download.

There are also a large number of tweaks you can execute to tailor Firefox operations. As an example, check out:

There are quite a few other posts in other fora that deal with the topics as well.
