TTF stalls/stops/bottleneck

In example: When commenting at a website which is clearly active, TFF slows to such an extent it is impossible to type a single character. No setting in preferences seems to matter. What is needed is a way to tell TFF to ignore what is going on in the background? Cache is not full, cookies seem to make no difference. Full reboot makes little difference, though it may change initially the issue quickly returns. Something is at a bottleneck which TTF is incapable to deal with. To note, when say activity at a site is slow, I can type with little if any problem and the system in general will update and react as one would expect. Sure, this not a new computer but the bottleneck is evident and I am believing there may be a way to set about:config to eliminate such an issue?

Any ideas are appreciated.

    It simply may be the website that's slow, Also without any more information like the website in question no one can test it on their end to try and replicate the problem or experience the issue them self's.

    Like Brian said, suggesting some of the websites to investigate would be helpful.

    If it's every website you interact with, such a pervasive problem would inevitably have been noticed by our beta testers. At this point I'd look at aspects of your computer (what type? what speed? how much RAM? which version of OS X?), what system extensions or login items you're using, and what add-ons are installed in TenFourFox.
