I've noticed that the browser becomes to get sluggish on me ever since the update to 50.1 on a Win 7 64-bit.

I open task manager and I see it growing and growing under the Memory column over 1GB and growing.

I gotta close the program and restart it. I only have like two or three open tabs, nothing major, just reading text sites without flash or video.

I also tried it without any plugins running, but the same issue. Memory just growing until the browsing become sluggish.

Like I said, I didn't have this issue before the update. Memory would stay around less than 300MB or perhaps less.

Power to my apartment came on and off a bunch from the power company working on line in neighborhood. I still have all of my PC files and programs however when I started to get online it wanted to reinstall Firefox. I just thought it was an update or something but it imported my information from Microsoft Explorer. I do not have any of my bookmarks or information on Firefox at least a year's worth of stuff is completely gone. What happened? Can I retrieve a backup of Firefox? or am i just out of luck?

I have Windows 7 on my gaming desktop computer, and have Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 which played fine on Explorer. Firefox works fine since I installed it, but this game is now jerky rather than smooth. Could Explorer be interfering? Even if not, would I be at any disadvantage if I uninstall Explorer?

I like Firefox because it eliminates following, information gathering, & all the hated things. I always open & run CCleaner when shutting down and noticed that when all is cleaned, Firefox has the most crap cleaned by a wide margin even though I have ABP add-on for FF.

Don't think this should be. How can I eliminate Firefox getting loaded down with crap while running? It's trashing up my machine & slowing FF down! What do I do???

I have Firefox set to restore previous session. After crash, the restore displays the proper number of tabs, but none of them have the url or page name.

I have restarted Firefox in Safe Mode, and here are a few screen shots showing the tabs, and the files I have in the Macbook Finder.

The tabs that were open at the time of the crash appear to be saved in the history, but I'd like to just restore the session before the crash.

How can I do that?

Thanks!

I read Mail Online every morning and sometimes on my PC

In the morning I read on an old Google Nexus One - and everything is smooth and fine.

Mail Online on Firefox on my PC is crushingly slow and often just locks up completely. I have a Pentium 2.7GHz with 4GB ram so it's not the most up to date, but all I'm wanting to do is read the news - not play Call of Duty.

I love Firefox, but this is now a clean install and it continually eats RAM and just slows to a crawl - sometimes I am typing a response and the keyboard lag is such that it is displaying one character every 2 seconds when I'm typing at 80 words a minute!!!

Internet Explorer I hate because of old security problems, Chrome started off well then became incredibly slow - so Firefox was always my favourite... but I am at my wits end!

Is there any plan for making it a bit faster without having to splash out on a core i7 and 8GB ram to read the flipping Daily Mail online?

I can no longer log in to my verizon.com account (no email, no paying the bill, nothing). The tab just keeps refreshing and bouncing between waiting, reading, transferring, sending and connecting. I also can't print from my American Greetings "create a card" account. I can log in but when I try to print, I get no action, not even an error message. I really don't want to go back to IE but that's the only way both of these problems are resolved. Any suggestions?

In an effort to understand why Firefox uses so much memory I've installed both the about: addons-memory2016 tool and the Tab Data add-on. My add-ons seem to be consuming just over 100 Mb of memory. The total of all open tabs is about 341 Mb. Between the two that's ~441 Mb of memory yet Task Manager indicates that Firefox is consuming well above twice that. How is this possible? I hasten to add that Firefox hasn't been open long and I haven't yet opened and closed very many tabs so can what's in cache possibly explain this difference? I'm a huge fan of Firefox and have supported its continued development and hope to continue to use it in the future, but this inordinate drawdown of memory is growing intolerable. Thank you for any help you may give.
