There is nothing to do : Roboform doesn't work with 64 bits browser.
Actually the only solution is to replace Roboform by Lastpass

This lag is killing me.

Since version 18 I have been getting multi-second complete freezes. It's like the browser gets caught up with doing something in the background and the whole thing chokes up. Sometimes I even "not responding" and a faded window or white-outed toolbars. This makes videos (flash or html5) almost unwatchable.

I've noticed many people reporting the same thing.
Is there any word on a fix or a workaround?

Different people had different problems - for some it's still an on-going issue. However, for me the problem was solved after I uninstalled KB2670838 - the alternative is to disable hardware acceleration in Waterfox.

EDIT: I believe Microsoft knows of this issue and has removed it from the recommended updates but if you are usually up-to-date on the updates you might have already installed it.

What's KB2670838 specifically?

Link to KB2670838. It's an update for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008.

EDIT: You should try the standard troubleshooting for Firefox (start in safe mode, new profile, doing clean install of plugings, etc). Much of the troubleshooting procedures for both Firefox and Waterfox are the same.

Thanks. How do I know if I got it installed in my system? Is this really known to produce problems to Win7?

As noted in a post before, disabling hardware acceleration in Waterfox did not solve the micro-stutter problem I and the user you quoted are describing. I am currently on Firefox Nightly 22.0a1 x64 and it is completely free of the problem regardless of the hardware acceleration setting. They are using the same add-ons, same plugin, same profile with same tabs.

There's something inherently wrong in Waterfox 18.0.1 that wasn't there in 16 and isn't in the Firefox code in 22.
