Had my blackbook for 9ish months, anmd its been great so far.

however, very recently, firefox has been acting very slow, and freezing/crashing occasionally. this usually happens whilst i am on facebook, with a couple of other tabs open.

any reasons why, or what i can do to fix it?

What CR said and also have you tried Safari doing the same things? Does it react the way Firefox does?

Do you have any ad-ins installed for FF?

Such as? Perhaps the pages you have open are using bandwidth through a plugin.

And, as dtravis7 said, is this problem endemic to Firefox?

Hi,
I run firefox (3.0.10) on my macbook pro (os x 10.5.6 model 3.1). Firefox has no plugins since I removed them with the menu in firefox safe mode. The problem occurs during normal use of firefox and did occure several times. Currently I'm building a joomla virtuemart shop and for that I have 10 tabs open. The pages I have open do not show live streaming or anything, they are just forums and help pages.
The problems with firefox started just after I upgraded to the last version.
What happens is that when I click on links the response time increases eventualy is several seconds (the color weel pops up). Eventualy the program becoms unresponsive and I have to force it to quit.
I tried to generate the problem again while writing this message in Safari but at this moment it wil not hang.
Can anyone help me resolve this problem? Is there a way te return to the previous version of firefox?

Jelbert

You can find the releases here.

Have you tried recreating your profile?

Hi vansmith,

Can you tell me what you mean by recreating my profile?

There is something else weird. This night I saw that my website did use much bandwith. at 04-28 it used 2.21MB at 04-29 1.86GB and at 04-30 2.47GB. First I thought the site as being hacked or something but now I thing firefox is keeping getting some files. When I open a tab and go to my site the bandwith of my connection goes to maximum. It takes a long time to load the page and when that is done it keeps getting data at 200KB/s. This does not happen in Safari.
I will go back to te last version and try again.

I think he means creating a new user account and logging in with that one and seeing if the problem persists. If the problem is user-specific, then we know it's got to be an errant setting within your account. If not, then we know it's an issue with the application or something inherent to the OS install.
