Firefox has been closing a lot lately. Normally it wouldn't bother me much. I don't recall what I was doing each time, but I do know that it has happened only when I let it sit on a single page for a while. This time I was writing up a very long reply to something in the Gaia Online forums. I also had Facebook and a Wikia site open in different tabs. I'm displeased because I lost what I was working on, and Firefox completely froze and I was unable to copy my work. Finally it closed and I had to start it up again. There was no problem bringing it back up.
I am unable to supply Crash IDs, because I have never been asked to do this. Nothing comes up. It just closes. That's it.
I'm thinking it could be because Firefox is a complete resource hog. My CPU usage consistently goes up and down from 86-100%. I disabled Java, as I read somewhere that this may help. It hasn't. Updating Flash is out of the question, because I have frequently attempted this, yet the update never appears to work with Firefox, but it does with Internet Explorer (which I don't use because it's so slow).
I'm quite frustrated. Firefox was working perfectly for the first few months I used it. I've ran scans, and there appears to be no malware or the like. I run SuperAntiSpyware on my computer, as it was able to get rid of Vundo when nothing else I tried would (I used AVG for a while).
