User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:6.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0.1 Build ID: 20110831062634 Steps to reproduce: I upgraded to firefox 7.0. Actual results: I started firefox and it slowed my machine to a crawl and I had to wait for 2 minutes until I could switch to a terminal and kill the process. Expected results: It should have worked like 6.0.
Please provide more technical information. What happened ? - Firefox used 100% CPU - your x server used 100% CPU - Firefox allocated all available memory - something else Did you try http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode to rule out installed extensions and the hardware acceleration ?
Any progress with FF 9 or 10? They have much better memory management.
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 10 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
