For me its lagging slow freezes and more. Is ti just me. Firefox is using 800MB of ram right now
I just used Firefox and it was working fine.
Maybe you have too many add-ons or add-ons that are not working anymore?
Might want to look into it.
It's kind of slow depending on the site that I go to. It especially gives me problems and even crash when I try to download something from mediafire. I don't have that problem when I use IE. Other than that it works ok.
Its taking up 800MB of ram in process
mine just use 100mb of ram , take a look about some malicious script or something
Use CCleaner (Free) and clean out your cookies and stuff. That might help some
The new plugin container in Firefox gets buggy sometimes. Use Control/Alt/Delete and look at the processes running.
If you have more than one FF window open it'll take up more RAM but I'm sure you already know that. As someone mentioned above, it might be a plugin. If I were you I'd start disabling or uninstalling them one-by-one to see which one is causing the problem.
I have it set to run every time my CPU starts. ERRRR my typing is laggin..
I always get a plugin container error most of the time
Mine has been real buggy lately as well, I use CCleaner everyday and it done seem to fix the problem. I am gonna try and delete the addons that I never use and see if that helps.
Anybody know how to delete the plug ins
UPDATE: I found it..http://windows7forums.com/tweaks-guides-howto/50412-how-remove-plugins-firefox.html
Tools > Addons
Then pick the ones you dont want, and click uninstall, After you click uninstall, if they are still there, click, Disable.
Thats what I did
Just go to tools>Addons> Then click on a plugin and choose Uninstall.

FF working fine 3.x on a number of Linux, Win and Mac installations for me. I also tried several 4.0 beta x and kinda liked what I've seen so far (the GPU acceleration is not as fast as ie 9.0 beta on win 7 though)... BTW a part from the regular (text) cookies as suggested you might want to clean up your LSO objects and have a look at your system with autoruns from sysinternals (dot) com. It shows wonders...
after doing link building[which as you know is going to open up hell of a number of websites in the process],the ram used by firefix is bound to go up.So i usually close the program and open it up again.
If you do not want to close it,then you can clean the cache in the browser and just start surfing.I usually close the program after a few hours.I open firefox two times each day usually.Taking up of so much memory is inevitable.its not about the addons at all.Its about the number of sites you visit.
FF is slow, it used to be a great browser.. I switched to Chrome 7 and it is amazing, maybe I will switch back to FF until version 4.0 (early 2011)
must be addons... though i use chrome lately.. rocks
Chrome, unfortunately, is the quintessential anti BH browser for the well known "features" it ships with... Like a unique ID and a lot of other widely documented tracking stuff. If I have to test something on a webkit rendering engine or simply want to feel the "Chrome" experience I tend to use Iron that's based on the same chromium sources and built without some of the tracking crap Chrome comes with. I'm fairly sure the are ways to neutralize the nasty habits of the G-browser but considering they release a major version every other day it'd be a little too time consuming to try figuring out which tracking mechanisms they add every time... Just saying..
Wrong. You cant do that.. Thats only for add ons not plug ins
Add-on is an inclusive term for a category of augmentation modules that are subdivided into plugins, themes, search engines, extensions, snap-ins, or various other vendor-specific names.
