Once again you were right RedEye9.

I think reinstalling Firefox fixed it.

Trying compatibility with other OSes was just one of various previous tentatives to resolve the problem, but didn´t.

Lately I´ve been somewhat hasty and vague in my inferrings.

Gonna start drinking as a cure, yeah !

Guess it is about time I ordered that new PC.... this one will have lasted me just short of eight years. The only hardware updates were going from 8 GB of RAM to 32 GB and a couple of hard-drive changes. Currently on a 1 TB SSD. Tried to update the video card once, but Windows fought me on it and after a few attempts I gave up and went back to my glorious Geforce 660 Ti.

Only had to change "Compatibility" of Firefox to Windows 8 to get it to run.

Thanks very much Bluesnews for posting today,

Odd, Firefox runs fine on all the Window 10 boxes I’ve worked on.

Late to the party, painlessly updated my Windows 7 Pro to 10, free.
Activation validated

Only had to change "Compatibility" of Firefox to Windows 8 to get it to run.

Thanks very much Bluesnews for posting today,

In the days of all flash arrays it is becoming a non issue anyway. Our 3420 array is stupid quick and that uses raid 5 with 3.84tb sas ssds. You would need your head reading if you used raid5 on 3.84tb spinning rust drives.

Even the write penalty is a non issue and for our db and exchange log volumes they are mega.

Except that most places that have established arrays aren't running all flash. The large majority of big data sets are still on spinning rust. Moreover, the speed of the filesystem is not what makes ZFS great. It is the features that literally no other file system has that are as mature and well functioning.

Unless you have 10Gbe throughout your entire campus, you're not going to saturate the i/o of spinning rust today. Even at 7200RPM.

I only understand ZFS is the broadest terms -- ie. I read the wiki page, but this wouldn't be the first time Linus was wrong. He appears to occasionally take technical positions for seemingly no reason or completely wrong reasons. He is a great worker, possibly a genius, but certainly not infallible.

Linus is 100% dead wrong here when it comes to ZFS' performance and Jim Salter does an amazing job of explaining why. ZFS on a large storage array is amazing and I wouldn't trust any other FS out there for my data sets.
