I RECENTLY INSTALLED NORTON 360 FOR MY ANTIVIRUS AND ETC. EVERY SINCE THEN IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER I GET A MESSAGE FROM NORTON THAT IS A PERFORMANCE ALERT TELLING ME THERE IS A HIGH MEMORY USAGE BY FIREFOX. ALSO I GET ANOTHER MESSAGE THAT SAYS THIS IS EMBARRASSING. FIREFOX IS HAVING TROUBLE RECOVERING YOUR WINDOWS AND TABS AND THIS IS USUALLY CAUSED BY A RECENTLY OPENED WEB PAGE. YOU CAN TRY: REMOVE ONE OR MORE TABS THAT YOU THINK MAY BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM OR START AN ENTIRELY NEW BROWSING SESSION. YOU CAN CLICK ON RESTORE OR START A NEW SESSION. NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK SO I HAVE TO TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND REBOOT.
