Glacial Firefox

Recently my firefox installation here on the desktop has started behaving very oddle. It's running very slowly and even going to one tab and then returning to the previous one at that point refreshing the webpage happens (apparently) very slowly - this occurs even for the 'blank' tab. I'm running the beta and am on 60.0b8. The menus are fine it's just displaying content. I've restarted several times and the beta has also upgraded - also involving a restart. This is with Ubuntu 17.10 and I see I'm not the only one with this problem seeing a discussion on the mozilla.support.firefox newsgroup - and in the other case the problem is with a Windows installation. It takes over 10 seconds to display the 'blank' page- weird, about to try a restart without addons. Even posting this blog firefox sits down for a rest every few words.
PostScript..I've restarted without addons which makes a little difference but still c 10 sec to display an already opened 'New Tab' tab.

Teaser Tuesday - Mar 18

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
I've not done one of these for a bit, but am enjoying this book!

Dawn on the way to the station

I'm still doing some early mornings, usually catching the 7:30 train into work and sometimes the dawn is worth a picture!

I seem to have missed out on pictures during the cold spell!
