User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30) Build Identifier: 18.104.22.168 When using the program Mozilla Firefox, it basically sucks my processor and RAM dry. I've also come to realize that I'm not the only one with the problem. I honestly love firefox which is why I'm wiriting this. I have a a 2.20 GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, so I know it's not because I'm low on those. The only other program I run with it is MSN Windows Live Messenger. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Restart Firefox 2. 3. Actual Results: Starts over and begins with not so many resources being used, to have my RAM and processor maxed.
Eh, your user-agent string indicates you're running IE7 and not Firefox. I suspect some firefox extension or special firefox build is at play here, maybe you could provide some more information?
Yes. I started using IE7 again because firefox wants to be troublesome. But no, the only thing I have special on firefox is a skin, and that was just added recently, but firefox has ALWAYS maxed my stuff out. I dont use add-ons for firefox because of the issue at hand.

This bug lacks sufficient information to do anything with it, so => incomplete. Also does not meet criteria for critical. please read https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html#bug_severity If you have a reproducible testcase or URL that causes problems, with steps to reproduce, then please post the information and reopen the bug. But frankly I don't see a firefox problem, you simply won't get good performance with XP on 512MB memory - in fact you are _guaranteed_ to have poor performance. IMO the best you can do is work on optimizing your XP environment and going through the list at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Reducing_memory_usage_(Firefox) Also, FF3 will use less memory in many situations, so give it a a try when it becomes available.
