Since the last update firefox continually freezes or stops altogether even when trying to open google homepage, IE works fine so not a connection issue. Is there anything I can do to solve this or will I have to stop using firefox altogether ?

I do see in Task Manager, Physical Memory Usage over time creeps up the graph, eventually nearing my 8GB my computer has. So, depending how many Tabs/Sites I visit, when the Graph Line nears the top, I hear my disk drive go into 'crunch' mode. This must be FF Caching Data. This can happen within several days or 4 or 5 days later, depending on my FF use.

However, once it reaches this point, the browser performance takes a nasty hit. The only way to regain better performance for me, is to Exit (Quit) FF and restart it.

Recommended Hardware for FF 65:

  • Pentium 4 or newer processor that supports SSE2
  • 512MB of RAM / 2GB of RAM for the 64-bit version
  • 200MB of hard drive space


Please do this:

Click on the Windows icon 'Start' (bottom-left) and in the right column, bottom, click on Run. Enter in:

<center>DxDiag /64bit</center>
<center> (Skip the /64bit part if it's Windows 32-Bit.)</center>

...Wait until the green bar loads and disappears, then click "Save All Information".
Post back here in the Forum with information under the Header:

    Disk & DVD/CD-ROM Drives

Make sure your computer is not too 'LOW' on disk-remaining space. This will be a major performance problem if your remaining disk space is TOO LOW!
Example: At the moment, I have 37% space free. If you're way under 25%, then you're probably running into performance / Memory issues.
Windows-7 and Programs like to have plenty of free-disk 'breathing' room. I recently cleared over 75 Gigs worth to get me to about 37% of free disk space.

Perhaps you may wish to setup a ReadyBoost Flash Drive.
If you have a lot of Windows and Tabs and your FireFox Browser is set to Restore Session when you start-up FF, the following will help with conserving some Memory:

Go to Options. Edit or Insert in the URL Box About:Config and go there. Set the following Values:

<center>

browser.newtabpage.enabled; false

browser.newtabpage.enhanced; false

browser.sessionstore.restore_pinned_tabs_on_demand; true

</center>
This will preload only the last Tab you were parked on per browser window. The other Tabs from your Previous Session will load only when you click on them.

If you open a lot of browser windows, you can set the maximum 'remembered' browser windows higher than the default for your Restored Session. My max is set for 25:

<center>browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo; 25</center>

Additionally, you could try this also. Have FF reset how much Disk Cache it will use for your system by changing the following to true:

browser.cache.disk.smart_size.first_run - false

It will change back to false after FF is Exited and runs next time, setting-up your Disk Cache value. Maybe this doesn't need to run again, but I did it a while back and 'appeared' to help me.

Finally, I did the following FireFox adjustments for my old 2010 computer with the Performance settings in Options as shown in the image attachment:


~Pj



Edit-Update Note: Change Back to 'True' (or 'Reset') for:

  • browser.tabs.loadInBackground false

Your computer is only 2GB of Memory. Your Windows-7 Paging File is also only 2GB. What is your hard drive size and how much free-remaining space is available? (See updated/corrected, earlier Reply).

Hi Pj Hard drive 163Gb free of 264Gb

How is your Windows-7 Paging File setup? 2GB seems awful low, since you have plenty of hard drive space.

Have FF reset how much Disk Cache it will use for your system by changing the following to true:

browser.cache.disk.smart_size.first_run - false

It will change back to false after FF is Exited and runs next time, setting-up your Disk Cache value. Maybe this doesn't need to run again, but I did it a while back and 'appeared' to help me.

Look at the attached image. Are you setup this way?

In FF Options, type the Search Term, Recommended P. Follow the steps in the first 3 images, below.

In Windows-7, find the Control Panel and go to Performance Information and Tools and follow the steps in the last 5 images, below, to check your Paging File Size.

You could try to manually set the size range to 2GB to 4GB and see what happens. Then redo the SmartSize Cache thing I posted earlier to 'reset' the FF Disk Cache.
