Firefox 40+ slow right click in Debian Linux

Just installed latest firefox on debian linux streetch.
Right click on link popup very slow.

SOLVED: [blfs-support] Firefox – slow menu and right-click response

The right click menu in Firefox is now fast again. I disabled Pulseaudio which
tried to load ConsoleKit. This did not work sine I have unstalled ConsoleKit.

=== details ===

I found this:

Jan 25 09:13:47 lfs pulseaudio[2565]: [pulseaudio] module-console-kit.c:
GetSessionsForUnixUser() call failed:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit
was not provided by any .service files
Jan 25 09:13:47 lfs pulseaudio[2565]: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed to load
module “module-console-kit” (argument: “”): initialization failed.
Jan 25 09:13:47 lfs pulseaudio[2565]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Module load failed.
Jan 25 09:13:47 lfs pulseaudio[2565]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Failed to
initialize daemon.
Jan 25 09:13:47 lfs pulseaudio[2562]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup

I commented out the text below in /etc/pulse/default.pa
#.ifexists module-console-kit.so
#load-module module-console-kit

I restarted and then the problem with the Firefox menus disappeared.

The root cause is probably that I uninstalled ConsoleKit. This was
intentional, but I failed to recognize the side effects.
