Ever since Monday, August 21, my browser has been having many unexpected crashes. As these crashes have been happening, I have done some research and found out that the latest versions of the Firefox browser and Adobe Flash Player have been using up a lot of memory and CPU. For instance, a recently opened browser uses up over 100 MB of memory, and a single YouTube page will cause the Flash Player to take up about 50-60 MB of memory. Since then, I've been using various programs and add-ons, such as MemoryFox and Firemin, to reduce Firefox's memory usage to 6-7 MB. However, the Flash Player is still using large amounts of memory, and the browser will still crash under conditions that it would have handled properly 3 or 4 weeks ago. If you could provide any help on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it, since I need my laptop in good condition for college work. I apologize if this letter was too long, but I thank you for you time irregardless.

I absolutely HATE IE, so I hope we can find a solution to my problem.

Pc info: Win 7 64 bit, 2.9 pentium with 4 gig ram video: radeon HD 3800

Three days ago I was infected by some malware. While i had it i could not watch videos on youtube in full screen unless i constantly moved my mouse. I uninstalled the malware and it didn't help. I reinstalled videos card drivers (even tried the new beta drivers), firefox, adobe flash, java 32 and 64 bit, and performed these steps: http://techlogon.com/2012/06/04/flash-player-crashes-in-all-web-browsers/

I've reset Firefox, emptied cache in Firefox, and manually deleted all program temp folders I could find. Also, I have disabled all add-ons and plugins, and even ran Firefox in safemode. Nothing seems to work. There may be a few things I've forgotten that I've tried.

In the last week, I have noticed that a 'spam-like' web site opens when I click on a button in a web site I am using. The site I was in goes to the correct location, but at the same time, another sited opens and becomes the one on the screen. One that has opened is (https://www.365dayloan.com/?hid=12573004&n=24329&fname=&lname=&email=). Another was a game site. This is NOT a pop up; it is an unwanted site on a new tab. How do I stop these unwanted sites from opening?

I do not remember ever going to this financial site before. I KNOW that I have never been to the gaming site.

I am running an older machine, but with a fresh install of Windows 7. Until the latest update, I had no issues with the versions of Firefox since my last OS install. Now when I am in the latest Firefox 23.0.1, I get occasional freezing that will lock the entire machine and need a hard restart. I am still diagnosing, but to date the only constant I know is Firefox. I have not experienced the same freezes using IE.

Occasionally I will think the freeze is happening when I lose both keyboard and mouse control during a Firefox session, but after 1 to 2 seconds, they both return. Typically though, it just freezes. Most times it occurs while I am away from the keyboard getting coffee or something. It is so transparent, the only thing that tells me the freeze occurred (other than loss of mouse and keyboard) is the system time still being several minutes ago.

I have seen the other forum message regarding Firefox 21 and Firefox 22, but I figured I ask in a new message regarding Firefox 23.

I have done the reset to Firefox as of last night. I reloaded Ghostery as my only Add-On, which was the only Add-On running during earlier versions of Firefox. Already this morning I have had the 1 to 2 second pause, but no freezing yet. (Now Troubleshooter has been added due to this message.)

Every time I turn on my computer, and as Firebox is my default with windows XP, I get a message that I should updated Adobe Flash as it is vulnerable. When I click on it, it says that Firefox has blocked versions 10 and below, so I click to update. I download the latest version, which is 11+ something, and I save it to download. Then I open the download in Firefox, and click on run. It starts running and stops at 50%, with a message, "failed to initialize." It is getting very frustrating! I have tried several times!

Also., I downloaded the latest version of firefox and ran that too. But, the 4.0 version shortcut is still on my desktop, and looks like that 4.0 is still running. What exactly is Firefox updating automatically? I don't get it!

Thanks!

I have four email address. I had to delete two according to my ISP and was told to reenter the email address with a new password. Now, I can not save the email address and the password. I have restored the default setting in Firefox. As I enter the email address and password, I check the box to remember. It will remember the email address as long as the box to remember is checked, but it does not show password. As soon as I unchecked the remember password box, it losses everything pertaining to that email address. I have checked Options, Security and it is set to remember passwords. There are no entries in the exception file. The box to "Remember Password" does not appear and any time. I have read several article on getting it to work, but nothing I do seems to help.
