I supposed videos loading up in the back are helping slow it down. If you can disable autoplay in your browser, do so. It may keep some of those videos from loading in the background till you are ready to watch them. In FF57
media.autoplay.enabled set to "false" would help. Its accessed using about:config in URL bar.
Hi!! Help!!! I admit I am a memory hog and constantly run my PC down to a crawl. Maybe someone can suggest a change in settings that will help my system run a bit better.
I have an HP Elite 8300 Compact desktop with Intel i5 CPU, 12GB RAM, running Win 7 64bit, and a 320G HD and a 3T HD set up as a backup for some data.
I run Google Chrome as my main internet browser and occasionally Firefox as a secondary. I usually have 30-40 Chrome tabs open and currently have 20 Firefox tabs open in addition. I'm sure you are wondering how it is running at all!! I've tried adding more RAM but it wouldn't run right on 16G for some reason. Is there a way I can configure the system to use the HD as extra RAM or set up the system to ignore programs I'm not using??? Please try hard not to laugh!!! Thank You!!!
