KM-Player, VLC-player or Windows games like Freecell really slow and struggling, when Firefox is open and normally acting when Firefox is closed?
I'm working on a Windows 7 64-bit 4G Ram and everytime I notice that my KM-player, my VLC-player or my Windows games (Freecell and so) are working exceptionally slow, they work normally after Firefox is closed. Come to think of it, Thunderbird works very slow sometimes as well. I haven't tried yet if turning off Firefox stops that as well. What could cause this to happen? I do not know what to tell anymore about it.

I dived into it and checked some sites about tweaking Firefox. And stumbled on one item about the amount of RAM for the cache. I opened about:config in the adress field and a very large number on the "browser.cache.disk.capacity" and the same large number on the "browser.cache.smart_size_cached_value". I changed it to the recommended size of 65536 (the former larger size was 2 figures larger starting with a 10). And the first impression is that it works. I will check and see if this is the solution and notify about it when it is sure. By the way, both these lines had User as a status, so I must have changed these lines myself before. I do not remember it, but I've made changes to the about:config in earlier versions after found advice about that on websites, after checking for that because Firefox was slow at that time.
