web3 4 resource heavy on firefox

  • web3 4 resource heavy on firefox

    As the tittle suggest...

    Why is it heavier to run web3 or web4 CA on firefox than chrome or opera?

    I play mainly on firefox browser (latest build: 43.0.4 ) and I noticed significant performance decrease whenever I opened web3 or web4. It fluctuates around 50K-100K memory used whenever I clicked on something in web3 or web4. Once I let it "rest" for a min, the resource usage usually drops by a bit. There are times when I just open web3, play a little bit and the resource usage goes to 900K+

    I've tried cleaning my cache, nothing changes
    disabled add-ons, nothing changes

    So... any clues? or I might be doing something wrong?

    Update:
    At the time of my post above, I just open web3 and forum with my FF browser, let it sit while I make some coffee and watch TV. Resource usage at 280K
    Now, the resource usage sits at 628K

    So....

      I'm pretty sure it's sloppy resource handling by mozilla's programmers. The increase in memory usage over time, even without you using the browser, is due to what is called a memory leak. Lord Reaper could tell you more about memory leaks, I just noticed it happens sometime on my chrome browser on complicated sites such as facebook or yahoo.com, where a thing like shockwave flash crashes on my old computer due to excessive memory use and cpu activity. Chrome is nice because you can use the windows task manager to monitor memory and cpu usage of each 'thread', and usually on chrome a 'thread' equates to one particular tab, whereas on opera, ie, and safari the threads are not separated, ie, it's an all or nothing affair when closing 'threads' in apps that are not chrome.

        funny thing,
        I just finished watching some youtube videos and opening facebook for around 30 mins, my FF resource usage sits at around 372K.
        now, I just opened web3 to check my account and the resource usage jumps to 545K. Now it sits at 485K.

        I don't believe it's because FF memory leak problem

        total tabs used:
        - facebook
        - youtube home page (not opening any vids)
        - this forum thread
        - web3

          I use Firefox on FreeBSD. I leave it running 24x7 with at least one web3 tab (often several web3 tabs) on it all the time. My Firefox runs for about a week before it complains about running out of memory and then dies off, so Firefox definitely has a memory leak, but it's not a very fast one. (My FreeBSD box's uptime is 34 days, and that's because I accidentally hit the power switch on it when trying to pull out the USB mouse and borrow it for a different machine. My Firefox has been running only since Wednesday.)

          I haven't noticed Firefox being slow or sluggish at all, even right before the browser dies. Even when it claims it's using a lot of memory, and even when it's about to crash due to running out of memory, the memory use doesn't impact performance.

          Also, are you sure you meant K? If so, what kind of machine and operating system are you using? Any process using less than 1M of memory seems very small these days.

          Overall, though, processes are supposed to use memory. If it isn't impacting performance, I wouldn't worry about how much memory a process is using (unless you're writing the software).

            I'm running windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1. Intel i5-3330, 8GB of RAM.

            I noticed this sluggish behavior since around a week ago. I dismissed it thinking I might have opened up a bit too much tabs on the browser. But then whenever I close the browser, it always crashed.

            This time, I experimented with just opening web3 and forum. I immediately noticed that the resource usage jumps really high which didn't happen when I open other webpages. Every web page I visited is okay except web3 or web4. And also whenever I opened web3 or web4, the browser always crashes whenever I try to close it....

            Perhaps it's just my system.. but idk...

            I have several add-ons with my FF browser:
            - Adblock plus (+Popup addon, +element hiding helper) ==> but I disable it on web3 and web4
            - noscript
            - OneTab
            - Tab Mix Plus
            - Youtube HD
            - ZenMate

            perhaps one of these add-ons may interfere with the process?

              The way to figure that out is to start up Firefox in safe mode.

              What happens if you start Firefox in safe mode and then run web3 and then exit? Does it still crash? Does it exit cleanly?

                tried safe mode, successfully enter web3 but crashed again on exiting ff :/

                I'll just uninstall ff and use chrome for CA

                Thanks for the suggestions

                  FF has always run with this problem regardless of web3/4 or FB. Will do similar for any other pages if left open long enough. I just end the task and restart, rinse and repeat every few days.
