"We're Sorry. Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts. To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report. (Which does nothing)

This happens up to 3 times in a minute. Then it runs for a while and maybe the next day crashes again. Not sure whether it's add ons or something.

Any help appreciated.

Note: the crash reports show very high memory usage

more options

You may try this:

  • Type about:memory on your navigation bar. Then click on the Minimize memory usage button.
  • Also go to Preferences>Advanced and under General tab you'll find a option "Use hardware acceleration when available". Uncheck this option if it is checked.

I think this will improve your browser's performamce.

lol My browser is crashing as I speak...:) Trying memory changes. Will see if it works

My one ram cartridge stopped working a while back so I removed it. I figured since I don't use my computer for games or advanced graphical stuff I'll just leave 2gb ram. I'm wondering whether maybe I should get another 2gb as it might be effecting performance.

Thanks Fred and Sashoto for your help.
