Hello,

Been using Firefox for years and refuse to switch to Chrome, but it gets kinda frustrating atm and im leaning towards Chrome lol...

If my firefox version is open longer then 24 hours, and there is a flash item in it, it will eat resources till my computer almost dies. Its open for +24 hours now. And Firefox.exe eats 1,2GB memory and 11% cpu

Firefox is open 2x with 20 tabs? I dont really care about the memory or cpu usage, but i do care about the. For instance, if its open longer then a few hours and i watched some flash stuff, i open a small youtube clip on the left, and scroll on facebook on the right screen the small clip is all stuttering etc.. and if that gets as bad, Scripts will be stopped by firefox, Flash does exactly the same.

So if i let my pc run if i go to work and come back with 10 tabs open, the browser is just laggy and not ok to work with. Tho better hardware does "solve" it, but thats a 8 hours ++ kinda.

My personal pc at home: i3 4310 with 8GB memory and a SSD. Win7 At work: i5 2500k 8GB and a SSD. Win7

Im kinda "home" to computers, as i work daily with them / solve problems with them bla bla..

It just seems to get more regulair with the trouble with Flash and Firefox. Tho i love firefox.. :( This is a problem getting bigger every quarter of a year for the last 3 years.

If i close firefox and restart its okay again for a few hours.. and then its crashing scripts and flash again, Im not putting this on Firefox, but i wanna know where this is going wrong. Ive got the same problem everywhere, i tried full resets defaults. I scanned my PC for spyware with MBAM, Combofix, SuperAntiSpyware.. And i even reinstalled my complete Windows installation at work a few weeks ago because of it.

Hope this is enough information..

Thank u.

Why does Firefox 35.0.1 crash regularly on many sites that use javascript image rotation?

Since the latest update to version 35, many sites that use javascript to manipulate images tend to crash firefox and make either the guilty tab or all of firefox close suddenly. (Firefox on Debian 7 Wheezy Linux, all updates current). I use firefox daily for web development and this regression bug is VERY annoying for my workflow. I understand you cannot take every situation into account. I do not have the time to investigate what has made Firefox less stable. I really hope you can fix this performance problem. If I can do anything concrete to help besides jumping into the code, let me know.

when I view a video on Firefox, it stops to buffer. The problem started when Firefox updated itself about a week or so ago. Before the update the videos on Firefox ran good with no buffering issues. Now it take up to 5 minutes to view something. Even the commercials will stop to buffer. How can I get this fixed?

When I play any type of media such as a you tube song, or media from a news source, it plays very badly skipping, running slow, or even hanging the browser. When I run any media on Internet Explorer it runs perfect so I have to go to IE if I want to hear something perfectly. So far I have tried every suggestion and nothing works. Does anyone know how to fix it. BTW...I do have an IE tab set up in Firefox and if I run something in that tab it usually plays ok but not always. I hate to keep switching browsers just to hear something that will play right and I am running the latest Firefox update

Streaming video crashes. Sometimes they will play for awhile then crash or Flash crashes from the onset.

I have the latest version. I have started in Safe Mode. I refreshed Firefox. I have unchecked the USE HARDWARE ACCELERATION WHEN AVAILABLE box in preferences, and in the little Flash box thing.

Nothing has worked. Is there something I have overlooked?

Thank you

For the past while, every time I fullscreen a youtube video flash will freeze, and I have to go through task manager to end the plugin. I've tried updating flash, disabling hardware acceleration through both the youtube video and firefox settings, and updating firefox. I'm at a complete loss as to what to do.
