why is there constant disk activity since I upgraded to 30.0?
Ever since Firefox was upgraded to v 30.0 (and it was set to automatically update, which I don't like) there is constant disk activity. Is there a way to rollback to a previous version until this issue is fixed?
I created a new profile and all the disk activity is gone. Thanks cor-el.在上下文中阅读这个答案 👍 1
I am no longer able to use Firefox as it also uses all my bandwith even while doing nothing, leaving me little bandwith for any other Internet based apps.
It is possible that your security software (firewall, anti-virus) blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
- Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem
