I noticed in my TASK MANAGER that firefox.exe runs up and down on CPU(119,000-177,000k). Is this normal guys? Can this fluctuating cause low memory problems? Suggestions anyone? I have a 32-bit Windows XP (service pack 3)operating system.

Does it do the same thing with all add ons disabled?

I have been using Firefox since last 4 years.Few days back I also encountered similar kind of issue with the Firefox.My system have 1 GB RAM memory.When I opened Firefox and checked the Task manager I saw that Firefox was consuming large amount of memory.Now I have upgraded my Ram to 2 GB and the problem is resolved.
