General Computer Discussion / BitDefender TrafficLight problem
« Last post by jheart on July 07, 2017, 07:46:27 pm »
I had a problem with Firefox lagging when going to websites. I suspected an addon to be the problem. Firefox worked fine when addons were disabled. So I disabled each addon one by one until I came upon TrafficLight. Problem solved. So  I guess I'll have to find another replacement for WOT (Web of Trust). Jerry
