    No screenshot I can think of. Spinning icon appeared briefly. No error message. Nothing happened.

    Uninstalled nightly. Reinstalled it. Same behavior occurred.

    What do you mean by "nightly" ?

    Is it a program or what ?

    They say they are updating firefox nightly, so they use that name.

    Read Firefox where I say nightly.

    Who is updating Firefox nightly? Did you set this up some how? The only time I get FF updates is when I start it. No automatic, nightly update.

    Perhaps post in the Firefox forum? Firefox Support ? mozillaZine Forums

    You could try Waterfox:

    Waterfox - The fastest 64-bit variant of Firefox on the web

    That is not a fix for your Firefox, but a good alternative.

    Hooray for David Bailey. I dumped nightly, installed waterfox, and now functioning normally.

    Why not just use the latest released version of Firefox, instead of nightly builds?????

    I currently have version 24.0.

Slow app loads in Software and Apps
Boot time is reasonable, but the first apps to load take far too long (up to 90"), and occasionally do not respond. Once the system has been 'up' a while, apps load OK. Multitasking is sluggish (with a high quality I7 processor). The prime suspects, as deduced via multiple event viewer errors,...
