[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2605806]While I haven’t had Firefox totally freeze to the point of requiring a reboot, I did notice in recent versions (which could go back to 5) where page navigation would often grind to a near halt on my Desktop. A workaround I’m using is by disabling Hardware Acceleration and so far this issue hasn’t reoccurred for me. This article shows how to disable Direct2D Hardware Acceleration in Firefox.
On the other hand, this hardware acceleration issue also occurs in Mozilla Thunderbird and so far I haven’t found a way to disable it in that application. While it doesn’t have much CPU usage, it hogs my graphics card to the point where I cannot watch video unless I close out of Thunderbird.[/QUOTE]
Ok I will give that a try on FF7 and see what happens but it just )(&*)( when your doing something and just grinds to halt without warning. FF5 was the last stable version that didn’t do that it started to happen after going to FF6. I don’t recall if hardware acceleration was on or off though. Maybe someone with FF5 on default settings could info me if there was checked for hardware acceleration or not?
