I (and many others, apparently) have problems with speed on Firefox. Essentialy, it's a RAM hog, particulary when loading Flash (not the browser's fault), but the main browser is still pretty bad.

I don't know, it may be the plugin's fault.

These are the installed plugins. (1) (2)

Is there any (enabled) plugin there known for hogging down the browser?

Also, somewhat related, the Java and VLC plugins apparently don't want to update. Clicking the link to solve the problem says I've already got the updated Firefox plugin, but it still says "These plugin may have security problems and has been disabled. Use with caution. Click here to update.". Downloading the installer and then installing doesn't help either.

I've got a few tabs open and Firefox is averaging under 400MB and 5% CPU load. (Yes, that includes Cookie Clicker.) What kind of performance are you getting?


If that was my computer, I'd uninstall Adobe Reader and replace it with this. (Not just the Firefox plugin, the whole program.)

Java Deployment Toolkit is already the latest version. That's normal; just leave it alone and maybe the next version of Java will fix it.

"Shockwave for Director" (a.k.a. Shockwave) is very uncommon. Unless you use it frequently, you can probably disable or uninstall it.

It's not a problem about performance (it's usually near 300MB), but it's that sometimes Firefox just freezes for some minutes with 25/50% CPU load, with an ever increasing RAM usage. If I don't kill the process it risks to go over 500MB.

Actually, that's not Adobe Reader. It's Adobe Acrobat.

Anyway, I don't really need it as a plugin. Disabled.



Now that I've checked, ByTubed doesn't work anymore. It has been discontinued due to Youtube encrypting the video URL. Better disable it.
