Hello, I've been having problems with firefox lately (v. 24): every time I open a few tabs it starts to freeze intermittently and sometimes it'll just freeze the whole computer altogether.
When I say freeze intermittently, I mean the whole computer starts hiccuping. The whole computer will freeze for about 2-3 seconds then resume, then freeze for another 2-3 seconds and resume. Usually until firefox then it stops.
It happens most often when I have flash tabs open like youtube, but it most recently happened with just my hotmail tab, and a tab for my online banking login page.
Could this be a driver conflict?
I was on chrome for more than a week and haven't had any problems, yet when I open firefox for the first time in over a week it freezes soon after I have even just a couple tabs open.
I'm not sure if it's just a particular type of stie (interactive ones) that crashes it or if it's having multiple tabs open.
Firefox also uses massive amounts of memory I've noticed. Like over a 1g for just something like 10 tabs.
Thanks for the help,
