Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Since I updated my Firefox I can't open multiple tabs without receiving and error message : a script on this page has been stopped due to a low memory condition
and it either starts freezing, crashing, or the text is all jumbled up!

Where I never had any problems before even if I opened 8 tabs ! I do a lot of digital photo work and designing and have to access several websites and online storage sites to keep my work animated, so it is crucial that I have the ability to continue to open as many tabs as necessary without my browser crashing, freezing, or receiving the above error message. 

This is getting very frustrating. I don't have this problem with the other browsers, but I love Firefox and would love to continue using it if I could resolve this problem.

Looking forward to getting this resolved and thanking you in advance for any help you may be able to give me.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Firefox opens but is slow
2.Once opened it works well as long as I only use one tab
3.Once I open another tab I get the error message: a script on this page has been stopped due to a low memory condition
4.I have plenty of memory space on my PC and virtual memory checks out fine
5.When a second or more tab is opened sometimes not only do I receive the above error message but the words on the newly opened tab will be jumbled up and some of the info will be missing on the site pages, e.g. add a photo tab, etc.



I was using the Nasa Theme, but I uninstalled it and went to the normal theme thinking a conflict between the update info and this may be the issue, but it still didn't resolve the problem.

Please check if Firefox's safe mode or a new profile solves this issue. See http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic+troubleshooting for details on both.

no response to comment 1, so => incomplete
but if you still see a probelm using version 3.6 started in safe mode, please reopen the bug.
