August 6th, 2008, 02:18 AM #1Help-FF browser constantly crashing
No, FF is not an obscenity It's shorthand for the Firefox browser.
This has not happened before: my Firefox browser is constantly crashing on me *sigh*
Is this happening to anyone else?
What can I do?

I had trouble a while back with the Adblock plugin locking up FF. As soon as I disabled it FF worked fine again. I've read about other plugins causing similar problems. You might turn off any plugins that are running and test.

Where is the task manager?
Even if I were able to diagnose the "memory problem,"I don't know how to juggles memory sticks or what-not.
At least I know how to turn a computer on
Anyway, I appreciate your help.

There may be some that you don't know about. Click Add-ons in the tool menu to see a list of installed plugins.
Yes, FF can suddenly start eating your processor alive. Press Alt-Ctrl-Del and select Task Manager to view processes. Look for FireFox and note the number in the CPU column. If it's high (up to 100), then FF is misbehaving. This represents the CPU usage percentage. The Mem Usage column is accumulated memory usage. Mine currently says 126,652 K. If FF continues to lock up, reboot.

It's really late but it's hot as in my apt.
I'm not sure what a "Task Manager" is -- heck, maybe I use it but just am unaware of all the lingo.
Which browser uses the least memory?
I don't like IE -- I switched to FF due to problems with IE.
I like FF as long as it doesn't crash on me

Has anyone noticed when on another site [especially] like Facebook, Myspace, or even other sites ( I don't remember other specific ones but you get a real variety of sites from newsnow.co.uk & I'm a current events junkie) -- one is often bombarded with prompts that say you need to update your Flash right now or update a browser or something?
I try to close those prompts immediately without downloading anything

It just crashed on me again
I think my computer is trying to tell me to go to sleep or maybe it's trying to tell me to go elsewhere
I'm going to remember this link for next time:
I don't think I've ever looked at that.
I know how to install & remove programs

As HG said, FF is a memory hog. I get that FFF too (FireFoxFreeze lol). I just restart the puter and it's fixes it for a while.
The latest FF version is supposed to use less memory and be better according to hubby. He has installed and confirmed that less memory is req'd by looking at Task manager.
I haven't downloaded it yet because I think most peeps have 2.0 version and I want to make sure my site looks OK in FF.
Don't worry about the flash pop-up, I get it too. It is due to the flash banner itself and issues/errors with Actionscript within the site's banner. I do what you do and close the message.

Accessing Task Manager depends on the configuration settings of your system but for most setups: put your cursor on the taskbar (I just go to the very bottom right corner) and right click. That menu has Task Manager (usually).

Try clearing your cache, something may be in there causing the problem.
FF3 has MUCH better memory management.[url=http://www.drastictactics.com/]Drastic Tactics[/url] - Performance Marketing Since 1998
