I have Firefox 3.6 installed with a bunch of add-ons for I don't know how long by now,but from maybe month and a half before I have experienced some new joys with it.It started just occasssionally,but now,it is almost regular that when I exit Firefox,Firefox.exe process remains running in task manager,and consuming up to 50-60% of cpu,and even almost a GB of RAM(and sometimes,there is even no this "almost",it goes way over).
I used to have problems with lagging every few seconds when running Firefox,and after few reinstalls,I get used to that and accepted it as unsolvable,but now I am thinking about trying Opera.
I am running Firefox 3.6,and about maybe 30 or so add-ons,and I think they are all necessary how much I am addicted to them.
So basically what is happening?
When I run it(Firefox),ram usage jumps to few hundreds MB for only few tabs,and after I close them all but one,I noticed that while cpu usage falls under 10% of usage,ram never falls down under cca 700mb.OK,that wouldn't be a problem,but CPU usage starts to jump from 3 or 5% all the way up to 60-70% altough only one tab with hompeage Google is open,and with usual lagging of Firefox on which I am used already it is causing major lagging problem,and PC is almost unusable.When I try to exit it,OK,I am out,but CPU still jumps up-down,and I have to manually shutdown Firefox.exe process in task manager.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall all add-ons,one by one,but nothing changed.
Does anybody have a clue what coul possibly help me so I don't have to change to Opera because I simply love Firefox with his add-ons(altough,I hear Opera is making wonderfull progress on that field).
Thank you all on reading,and I am sorry on my bad english but I hope you have understood what is my problem.
