Hey everyone:)

My computer runs great otherwise, its just that if im on firefox or ie for too long it will start to get extremely slow... Videos will skip and from page to page grows distant. I noticed that the process for firefox on mem usage over time progressively gets larger... is this normal? starts out at 80k mem usage... and grows to about 200k-500k by the time im done with it or if it sits on it for to long. Any ideas on whats goin on ? My upload and download speeds stay the same and constant...

Thanks,

Matt

This is a problem with firefox. It suffers from programming errors known as "memory leaks." This causes it to continue to take up more and more memory as time goes on. Shutting down firefox and restarting it should alleviate the problem temporarily.
