I wonder if your RAM could be the issue. Could you please post a screenshot of the performance tab of Task Manager?

2GB is a little on the low end for today's applications. Firefox does use a lot of RAM.

Hi, mohammed yasser.

I don't think your RAM is the issue here. You should be able to run Mozilla Firefox with 2 gigabytes with no problems. You mentioned that it happens on startup sometimes. This is possibly because of other startup applications stalling Firefox.

Can you tell me what/how many applications you're running on startup? And also, if there's a particular website or activity that crashes Firefox regularly, could you please alert us to this as well?

Thanks,
Harvey Meale

Switch to Opera. That's what I did and I have been completely happy.
