1 GIGABYTE of RAM usage????
Opera is half way there total.
Mozilla Firefox you are an inch away for me ditching you.

Meanwhile I'm at 1.5GB with some 700+ tabs in 16 windows, don't install flash and other garbage. It's the Flash, which is the worst thing ever made followed by Java.

Seems v55 finally has the announced speed ups and Firefox finally runs the way it should when it comes to starting and closing, they removed that stupid single thread loop hog that was there for ages and did who knows what beside massive startup and close delay when FF has many tabs. Now it opens/closes the same way almost whether it has 100+ tabs or 10 tabs.

There seems to be some issue with certain extension in 55 but should be fixed in 56... so far good for me though. The extensions API is changing but most popular apps should transfer fine IMHO.

Did you guys know that Mozilla has a 64-bit version of Firefox 42?

 

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/42.0/win64/

 

Find your region/language and then download.

 

Most of you will porbably just want this one: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/42.0/win64/en-US/

starjammer Hi, guys.

Not sure if this is the proper forum to ask this question, but I just want to know if any of you have recently experienced Firefox windows stealing focus in Windows 10?

I'm running Windows 10 with two virtual desktops, each with two windows of Firefox, side by side. I find that at times I am working on one window, when suddenly focus goes to another window, even when there was no activity in the other window. More often than not the focus goes to the other desktop, causing an annoyance and disruption of work.

Do any of you know why this could be happening? The issue does not manifest when I close Firefox, so I am quite sure it's the cause. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, they're two very different browsers. There's a whole lot more to Firefox than Chrome. Chrome is light and fast and doesn't have much to it while Firefox is more complex.

 

I'm still using Firefox 31.7.0 though (because I hate all newer versions), so I can't comment on 39's performance or anything. For me though, 31.7.0 doesn't give me any problems whatsoever.
