I have only have 768MB of main memory. I'm on a slower (1.5MB) broadband service and when I surf the website I open up each section of the forum that has new post each in a new window then I go to each of those windows and open up all the new topics each in there own tab on that window. I've always done it this way and never had a problem with having 7 or 8 windows open with each having from 1 to 6 tabs open at the same time.
Now doing this with only 2 or 3 windows and opening 6 or 7 tabs it totally pegs my processor out at 100% even after all the pages are done loading makes it almost impossible to get control of the system back since Firefox is taking almost all the processing time. I've watched the memory usage and processor percentage and it definitely Firefox and appliantology website.
I think it might have something to do with Google/Doubleclick ads since when I'm loading a bunch of topics in new tabs and the processing starts locking up and the download indicators all stop they seem to be all at a google.doubleclick ad thing being loaded in the status bar at the bottom of the browser. Just noticed the AAA/Hertz ads are flash ads and been seeing them a lot since this problem has been going on, each one maybe having to load another flash player or something because it's done downloading and the amount of memory that Firefox is consuming over 500MB and starts releasing as I start closing out tabs.
It's that or maybe something to do with that Samurai help script that runs, maybe it's still in the background somewhere even after I "X" to close it out.
