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.

I am assuming you've also looked in the Visual Basic Editor and Real Basic Editor as well? I hate to say this, but I would not rule out a macro virus. We recently had an out-break of the Melissa.
