Do you find that Firefox is using a LOT of memory & lagging? - If so read this
I use both Firefox and Chrome, but looking at my task manager FF was using more than double the amount of memory, when I had hardly anything running on it. Today it had just BF and a couple of other tabs open & was using nearly all my memory, so I did some investigating & found an interesting claim, which said that Google are adding something into their sites, (such a YouTube, G-mail etc) which, when used on browsers that are not Chrome, cause the browser to run more slowly. Now I am no expert & I have no idea if that is true or not, but I have used Google sites on FF, so it could be possible.
One suggestion was to add this extension to FF: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restore-fast-theme-of-youtube/ so I decided to give it a go out of curiosity. I had my Task manager open when I installed it & the memory usage for FF instantly dropped from 2470MB to 831MB
I have no idea how it works, so I can't promise that it will do the same for everyone, but my Farm is now running faster & so is everything else that I have on FF.
