Since the update to Firefox 15, it crashes all the time after a little while, with RAM consuming capped max!!!

Since my update to Firefox 15, it crash every little while; i tried everything, from unistalling and re-installing it to safe mode and more... but nothing changed! The only clue i have is that every time after i use Facebook, opening some tabs, or something similar, my computer fill all the RAM i have (4GB), and particulary Firefox manage to get this incredible and wrong usage!! i have some crash ID report i hope could help to fix this problem of mine... Thank you all!

I have pretty much the same problem. Disabling hardware acceleration does NOT fix it. Firefox has never been this unstable. What's going on??

I have exactly the same problem, I am quite desperate about it, don't know what else to do!

Try to disable hardware acceleration for not just Flash, but all of Firefox. Turning off hardware acceleration. This crash is caused by a Recent Graphics update to AMD graphics cards.

I fixed the problem by getting rid of Flash Player 11.4. As far as I'm concerned, it's a worthless POS. I reverted back to Flash 11.2, and now Firefox is fast, smooth, and doesn't crash.

The issue is not with flash, i am currently crashing all the time on a site where flashblock is active.
