Firefox belast mijn processor. Wat moet ik nu doen?

Als ik Firefox op moet mijn laptop heel hard nadenken. Hij word heel heet op dat moment. Hij word niet koeler. En bij sommige websites loopt Firefox vast.

Re: Firefox belast mijn processor. Wat moet ik nu doen?

hello, please if you can, ask in english, but it looks you are having hardware problem

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration. Since this feature was added to Firefox, it has gradually improved, but there still are a few glitches.

You might need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).

Then perform these steps:

  • Click the orange Firefox button at the top left, then select the "Options" button, or, if there is no Firefox button at the top, go to Tools > Options.
  • In the Firefox options window click the Advanced tab, then select "General".
  • In the settings list, you should find the Use hardware acceleration when available checkbox. Uncheck this checkbox.
  • Now, restart Firefox and see if the problems persist.

Additionally, please check for updates for your graphics driver by following the steps mentioned in the following Knowledge base articles:
