I find Firefox is taking 97/99% processor power.I'm sure I saw a recent thread on this but can't find it.Anyone give me a steer please?
Eliminate add-ons as the cause by firstly running FF in Safe Mode. If the CPU percentage reading drops, the add-on might be the likely cause.
Firefox usage on this page in my case is nought per cent when loaded - turning to a new page sees it rise briefly from 25 to 30 per cent for a second or two as the ads etc are reloaded.
To start Firefox in safe mode as Probabilitydrive suggests - typefirefox -safe-modeinto your run box (note the space after firefox)
Anybody at all remember seeing this thread I'm after?
There is this one; click here
Hmm, try this link; click here
Yes, thanks, that was the one.Didn't really help much, it just happened the once. The computer (HP laptop) virtually locked up and Task Manager showed Firefox as using virtually all the processor power (on the PCA Forum page).Closed it and reopened it with the same result, IE worked OK.Did a reset and it has been OK since (couple of days).I've been using Firefox for some years, with no add ons, never had the problem before.Just have to wait and see.
Sorry, forgot to tick.
