Anything that fixes the util rate hog issues? This 3.5 browser just loves to peg my machine at 100%!
Seem’s like a common complaint of this and earlier FF versions. Mine will peak sometimes and very rarely will freeze meaning I do a ctrl-alt-del to shut it down. Most of the time it is due to a video I’m trying to play or download.
BTW, when my little green box in the system tray (ctrl-alt-del, Options, “hide when minimized”) goes and stays green, I know I have a problem. That’s the best quick indicator that I know of.
I only have 512MB of memory, run XP Home, and have had 3.5 since the day it was released - and both computer and browser run very fast.
This is a 2004 Dell Computer, so hardly state-of-the-art hardware.
Not sure why so many folks are having trouble with this version of FF hogging memory.
FF consistently uses around 75MB of memory (virtual memory is appx. 190MB).
