    NoScript is known to slow down firefox. While it's useful, You need to pick, Slow or fast. Also adblock will take up memory, BUT Better to block ads than get a random virus/sexual pop up. (Ive seen these on sites believe it or not.)


    Also, have you enabled pipelining? If not I'd suggest to get FasterFox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...cmanfasterfox/. If you have anymore problems, You can report them to Mozilla Support

    Mozilla has released Version 32.0 of the Firefox browser. The most significant changes include enabling new caching and generational garbage collection systems to improve performance, navigation icons in the right-click context menu, last used and last changed dates for saved passwords, displaying the number of found items in the find toolbar, and a fix for text rendering issues on Windows 7 and 8.1.

    My prob with FF was the 'ff is still running, reboot.........................' after I had closed it down and came back with something else later.

    Incidently, CMs link includes pop up adverts, very clever of them dont you think?
