I tried to use Firefox in three different computers but only in the one with over 4 GB of ram is usable. Why it uses so much RAM and renders so slow? Specially the scroll is really laggy.

I tried clean installations but they do not fix the issue.

When opening Firefox and Chrome and playing a video in YouTube, Firefox uses over 500 MB while Chrome uses less than 300 MB. Both with the same single addon.

Is there something that can be done to use Firefox in computers with less than 4 gb of RAM?

Adobe Flash Player works well in Internet Explorer but I cannot download & install it in FireFox. I always get the error message "An error has occurred in the script on this page. Line:883 Char: 37217 Error: error in loading DLL Code:0 URL:Http://127.0.0.1:53437/App/_js/main-merge.js Do you want to continue running running scripts on this page? Yes/No" Selecting either yes or no makes no difference and the error never changes. Closing the error results in a message from Adobe stating that it was unable to install the program. Their download version is now 12.0. Adobe Reader 10 downloaded & installed fine but Flash Player just won't do it.

Ever since Firefox made Youtube videos only play in HTML5, no matter what quality setting I have on the video I'm watching, when I view the video on fullscreen it has low framerate. This problem does not happen with other video sites that uses Flash, like Twitch, Blip, or Dailymotion.

Is it software related to the browser or hardware related with it being HTML5?

I am currently using the newest version of firefox (just updated, but the problem was there before) and I use Windows 8. I'm using these addons: Adblock, Evernote, Self destruckting cookies, Youtube unblocker. Only the adblock icon shows in my toolbar. I've tried disabling/enabling all the addons, nothing changed. The cookie app works, although the icon doesn't show, but the YT unblocker doesn't work at all (I should probably need to enable it via the icon setting) I use the same combination of add ons on my other laptop, but the problem doesnt occur there! (but it is using windows 7) I've tried using the costumization but my add ons aren't listed.

When I try to scroll down using the middle mouse button, it goes so slowly that I can't stand it, so I use the scroll bar to the right. This is annoying to me. When I reset the mouse button on my windows to more lines, it makes it scroll too fast for my docs, but does not affect the scrolling in FireFox. I've looked for tools and options for this, and can't find anything to do about it.
