firefox using massive amount of memory. 300,000: WHY? and, how do I fix this?
Whenever I am using firefox ( daily) it seems to use up a huge amnount of memory. It uses so much that loading pages slows to a crawl, and so do any other applications I am using. This happens even if I have only 2, or even 1 tab open. I am pretty sure I don't have any viruses-- although I admit I suppose this is possible--
but why would firefox be using this much memory/ space?
Every time Firefox opened
== a while now..
Me too although FF has always hogged my system memory. Seems more so since the update, I cant even surf regular now.
It's definitely worse since the last updates. the plug-in container is another huge hog/ bog down..
so- does anyone know if this is normal...? 300,000 of memory for a basic webpage being up, for checking email is a bit excessive..
what I do note, it that is creeps up, rather than using 300 k right from the beginning.
