My OS is Windows 7 - 64 bit. For the last few days, Firefox (my main browser) has been sluggish - homepage (Google) is slow loading as well as other Web sites like Facebook and web page scrolling is jerky. A blue dot goes back and forth in the upper left of the screen for about 20 seconds before opening a page - it used to be instantaneous - and while the blue dot is moving, I cannot open any drop-down menus. I do not know if this is tied into the problem I has with an MSE quick scan I tried last weekend where it took 3 times as long as usual and only scanned half the usual number of files. In Firefox I only have three add-ons: Shockwave Flash and Wolverine Content Decryption Module which are both set to "always activate" and Open #264 Video Codex which is set to "never activate". There are no extensions. In Task manager, Firefox is using +571K in the memory column. Has anyone else have this issue? What could be the problem - I haven't downloaded anything but Malwarebyres and MSE definition updates.

Update: I changed the homepage and Firefox opened right away. Don't know why Google would make it lag.

It was back to normal today. It may have had something to do with the animation they used Wednesday and Thursday for the holiday.
