I just updated to WF31 from 30 and am also getting very noticeable lag when scrolling some pages.

Edit: Actually it's just laggy in general (even when doing things as simple as opening/closing new tabs). Reverting back to WF30 completely fixed the issue, so I'll stick with that for now.

And it's more noticeable where flash is used on pages that i have seen, such as on facebook. If i open a few tabs with lots of content it grinds into a horrible mess. Its so bad in fact im going back to vanilla ffox :/

You should just be able to use the uninstaller. If you want to keep your bookmarks etc. don't select the delete all data or delete profile data (something along those lines) when using it.

First, make a backup copy of your Mozilla profile.

Should be at a path similar to:

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Or you can use a utility like MozBackup.

Make sure you have the Waterfox 31 setup file saved on your computer.

From Programs and Features, uninstall Waterfox and any older versions of Firefox.
Choose the option to leave your profile on the computer.

Install Waterfox and restore your Mozilla profile if you need to.

Comparing Waterfox 31, Firefox 31 and Seamonkey, I see little or no difference in CPU usage.

My idling CPU usage is between 20 and 31%.

Waterfox adds about 6% usage except when first loading.

Your idle should be zero - 5%, not 20%+

WFox v30 didn't have this issue and neither did any of the previous versions i've used since it was created.

Now its using 25% cpu on mine when loading and scrolling through pages with lots of content and/or flash components.

When it "settles" cpu usage is normal but there is still noticeable lag scrolling, clicking compared to older versions in my experience.

Conclusion something is wrong, or its an issue with flash maybe.

Same issues here with WF31. Slow to startup, lags when moving between tabs, slow to load, etc. I don't have these issues with FF31 nor did I with WF30.

Same exact issues here, very long load home page load times, plus WF31 would hard crash to desktop because of plugin_container failures every time I attempted to play any flash videos.

WF is probably the only browser that has not created issues for me in Win 7. Even vanilla Firefox was giving me problems. I love waterfox. I'll give 31 another shot when they update Flash.

I'm getting some startup stutter when loading Waterfox 31 that I didn't get with WF30. My CPU usage spikes on start up and WF31 takes about 1 - 2 seconds to become responsive (opening tabs from about:newtab)
