|I've loved Firefox since Dave recommended it years ago.|
Lately it has been driving me insane...always hanging and not responding. Anybody besides me having these issues? I'm so discouraged I've actually been using Chrome a lot lately.
Chrome is ok but it doesn't have the ability to have tiny bookmarks like Firefox and I haven't been able to find an adblock for Chrome either.

|I quit using Firefox several years ago for the same reasons you cited.|
These days I use Chrome with the uBlock Origins adblocker add-on.

|Thanks Dave, problems only started a mnth ago or so. What do you use for your bookmarks?|

|I use Chrome and I just use regular bookmarks, what are tiny bookmarks?|

|tiny bookmarks give you a bookmark bar that shows just te websites icon, therefor you can get easily 50 bookmarks showing at the same time just waiting for you to click on them.|

|I understand now. I have 12 bookmarks across the top on my screen on my bookmarks bar (I edited them down ), then just to the right on the end is a set of double arrows >>, I click on that and the rest off my bookmarks become available in a vertical list which can be put in the order I want. With my eyes I might have trouble trying to recognize 50 icons across the top of the screen, and heck I might not even remember what the icons stood for.|

|If you hover your mouse over the icons it shows the name of the website. It's the only thing keeping me hanging in there with Firefox.|

|Chrome supports that natively without any additional addons.|
Just make your bookmark in your bookmark toolbar and edit the bookmark to remove the name. It'll show just the icon.

|Funny. I don't have those issues with Firefox; it's working fine for me. My only complaint is that when I first turn on my computer, it takes a bit for FF to load, but I think that has more to do with all the other junk on my computer. Chrome IS faster, but I'm just too lazy to learn how to use a new browser.|
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
