Even More Browsers
Note the little message above Windows 7 conveniently sent me about the 14 Firefox crashes.
Another annoying problem is that the Firefox kernel will “stick” in memory. Sometimes I’ll shut the browser down. When I restart it, I get an error:
"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."
Finally, Firefox seems to hammer system memory. It’s not as bad as Firefox 2 in terms of memory footprint, but when I load a bunch of tabs into Firefox, Windows comes to a grinding halt as it’s all loading. I look at my CPU meter, and not much is happening. I can’t figure out what’s going on, but the good news is that this seems to happen only when I first launch Firefox after booting up the system. Memory leak perhaps, Mozilla?
