    Currently, Windows 10 (which I have on three computers; only my laptop has Win7) has both "Settings" and "Control Panel."

    Exclamation How to Fix High Windows Defender Disk Activity When Using Mozilla Firefox

    How to Fix High Windows Defender Disk Activity When Using Mozilla Firefox
    Disk activity bug hitting Firefox users on Windows 10
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Windows 10 users, however, might have found the hard way what a compatibility issue between Firefox and the operating system means in terms of performance impact. Because as it turns out, a several-months-old bug in Windows Defender antivirus causes high disk activity for Mozilla Firefox, obviously slowing down the system and affecting the browser’s performance."
    "Right now, it appears that the said software compatibility issue is the one to blame for this slowdown, and without an official fix, users are all on their own to resolve it. Fortunately, a workaround does exist, even though it’s not the most convenient for everyone."

    You don't have to go to that extreme. Some are saying that Opera has become too problematic lately.

    There's now Firefox Quantum. But have you looked into these Firefox counterparts?

    Pale Moon
    Download Pale Moon x86 - 27.9.3
    https://www.palemoon.org/palemoon-win32.shtml

    Download Pale Moon x64 - 27.9.3
    https://www.palemoon.org/palemoon-win64.shtml


    Waterfox
    Download Waterfox for Windows
    https://www.waterfoxproject.org/en-US/waterfox/new/


    Basilisk
    Download Basilisk
    https://www.basilisk-browser.org/download.shtml


    In addition, there is CYBERFOX but it is no longer being supported it has been reported.

    Many are giving these web browsers high marks due to their high performance without the extra bloat and stuff.

    I haven't used Firefox since at least Win7, probably Vista.

    Have you tried any of the other "partner browsers" to Firefox that were listed? Pale Moon is one that comes very well recommended! Waterfox is nice too. It's fast and add-ons or extensions can be added for extra security, etc.!

    Let's spend a little extra time next in discussing software.

    Things like:

    What do you use on your particular OS?

    What do you need for a certain task?

    What are you looking for?

    What has worked for you or not? (Please be objective.)

    Your tips for others on software.

    Well, it's good to learn that no one has any questions about software, computers, etc. Therefore, we can now move on to other topics.
