Alrighty, I've just got through weeding out a VX2 infestation on my computer and decided to switch to Firefox. Now, I like leaving my web browser up in the background while doing other things, but on both my and my GF's computers Firefox is eating up a ton of the CPU memory. I'm currently searching the web for a solution, but I figured maybe one of you would already know how to fix this?

Is it 1.0? There's a memory leak. Instructions on how to fix it, as well as other potential tweaks, here (windowssecrets.com).

Do you mean CPU (a % from 0 - 100%) or memory usage?



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

If you have Firefox installed, it should push out 1.5.0.5 automatically when you start the browser in order to secure the issue. My home machine updated last night and my work PC did so this morning the first time I opened it up.
