RE: O/T: Software

Looking for some guidance.
Running FireFox on XP.
Can minimize FireFox with no problem.
When I restore from the minimize position after some period of time, usually an hour or so, get a complaint that FireFox is not responding.
This requires that I close out FireFox, then reload and things are hunky-dory.
Any ideas where to start to solve this problem?

Have you got the latest updates? I just got a new update today. Mostly I use Chrome which runs way faster than Firefox but I do have to use Firefox on some web sites.

Disable ALL add-ons and see if the problem persists.
If it does, do a complete uninstall, hard reboot the computer and a complete reinstall of the latest version.
See what happens and THEN begin adding your add-ons (if any) one by one, holding your breath each time to see if the symptoms come back.

I think there's a reasonable chance the problem could be related to power management settings (in Windows, or in the BIOS (hardware)).
I have encountered the problem. I got to task manager (<ctl>+<alt>+<del>), and close the offending application. That takes care of it without restarting the computer (not sure if you were going that route).

Perhaps a switch to Chrome? Chrome runs fine in XP.
Try disabling the plugins, they can be problematic in FF. Flash can be a crasher and Chrome handles those crashes better. Memory leaks?, dunno for sure.
I'm a web developer, so I have a wide variety of browsers, FireFox just doesn't seem to be the animal it used to be.

I'd rather not jump out of Microsoft's bed into Google's[*]. I'll stick with Firefox.
[*] Apple vs. Google (cell phones) isn't a lot of choice, IMO.

If you're talking about Android phones, Android is Linux based.

It also owns Android.

Of course it is. It doesn't matter a whit where Android comes from, it is *NOT* Linux. I wasn't really, but that part is apt, anyway.

And yes, been using linux since 1995.
And yes, the internet is run mostly on linux servers on all types of hardware from Pea Seas up to and including IBM mainframes, not to mention most infrastructure hardware.

Why would I refute irrelevance. Your whole argument is.

Wow, what's up your ass about Linux? Linux is a fully capable O/S... many servers SUN/HP/IBM are now on LINUX vs their own version of software. Linux does not crash like MS. it's not hacked as regularly. If you prefer Mac or Windoze that's your thing. I use Win7 and Linux, and don't have a problem with it. But IDIOT??? no, he's probably smarter than most, being a user since 95 when it really had to be manually configured , shows that he is not an IDIOT...

If you could read, you'd figure out that I have nothing against Linux, other than it's unusable for most. I *do* have a problem with Linux evangelists, however. They're as bad as the 'Doze evangelists of 20 years back, if not worse.

Absolutely irrelevant.

The *FACT* that he can't read and insists on evangelizing does show that he is indeed an IDIOT. You just joined that group.
