Opening firefox takes too long to load

Opening ff takes 30 seconds and loading the addons/bookmark icons take an additional 10 seconds. Opening other apps usually take 1 or 2 seconds and only 5 seconds at max. I also dont know where to put my userChrome.css because I have it on /home/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox/wpxcb576.default-release/chrome yet it doesnt work.

In the latest version of Zorin(17), firefox is provided as flatpak instead of a deb.

You can try installing the deb version of the firefox and check for improvements: Install Firefox on Linux | Firefox Help


Do You have installed the .deb, Snap or Flatpak Firefox?

It is flatpak. I'll try installing the deb one

Remove the flatpak one first.

Oh thanks for reminding me, how to do that?

Arrgh. Never able to search the answer when needed. I found this,

...but am sure there are a couple of simple terminal commands here somewhere for that. I will come back if I find them.

EDIT: maybe this is better:

Open the Terminal and type flatpak uninstall org.mozilla.firefox --delete-data
