Firefox loses the saved users and history after awhile!

Posted

When I first start Firefox all is fine, the history is there and working, all the saved user/pass is there but after awhile it's like firefox loses it's memory and I need to restart the browser to get it all up and running again. Is it a config I need to do in about:config or what?

This didn't happen when I was using Windows 7 and FF, but now under Ubuntu 10.04 it happens all the day.

This happened

A few times a week

== Ubuntu went to 10.04 LTS!

If you close Firefox, then start Firefox in Safe Mode, does the problem still occur? For instructions on starting in Safe Mode, see Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

Even in safe mode it loses it's memory, but it comes back real fast. Got a terminal up and running and it tells me this: (firefox-bin:2691): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead

Can't find anything out on google about this, but I'm not alone with having this problem with Ubuntu and Firefox in Sweden.

Therefore, is it Firefox it self or is it in Ubuntu?

I really don't know. Did you install Firefox from Mozilla or from the package manager?

I'm using the firefox that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 from the begining. And here in Sweden I'm not alone with FF losing it's memory after a while.

I will try to remove the one that comes inbuilt, and try a fresh one!
