Tor is just running from a folder. So, only thing I can do is deleting that folder or not running the program.
It is not installed, so it can't be uninstalled [Portable] (I can delete the folder).

Without Tor and without the add-ons and extensions, it is around 100,000K, which is better of course.

I didn't know tor was causing problems on a computer or with firefox.

If it's any comfort, I run a squeaky clean system and my firefox, which I admit is loaded, is presently using about 300K. Might be less if I exit, run ccleaner and start back up again. I just haven't worried about it.

It may be flash maybe. Something I am seeing it using over 100,000K. Especially, when it makes firefox and/or the computer freeze. Less than 5 tabs, it is around 300,000K; but over 5, it tends to go up to 500,000K.
As long as, it doesn't freeze; there is no problem, but when it freezes the computer, that is bad.

Thanks for your help.

I think so too. Since the last Flash update FF has been freezing quite often.

I haven't had any freezes, but I keep both of them current.

If it means anything in this thread, I installed FF last night. With only the program installed, no add ons and 1 tab open it runs 50, 000. That is the bare install.
