A previous version worked great on my XP: I could always see afom.exe always doing its thing in Task Manager, and Firefox memory usage was lean and mean. Now when I update - no matter what I try, reinstall, uninstall, reinstall, activate, deactivate in all different orders, reboot, reboot, reboot - Memory Fox seems to be installed properly and all the menus seem to work; but no reduction memory usage and afom.exe never shows up in Task Manager (but I can see it installed in its proper place inside the Components folder).
So Memory Fox never really gets to start its work.
Too bad. Is it bye bye to Memory Fox? (Hence bye be to memory bloat Firefox.) What's up with that non-appearing afom.exe? Is there a way to check what's stopping it from running?
(Rating of 3 is the average of 5 for that previous version, and 1 for this one that now doesn't work for me.)
1) You can try the AdBlock Plus add-on extension: When you are on the offending page, click "open blockable items". Try to find the refresh ".js" item in that list of blockable items, then get AdBlock plus to block that item (eg. right click the item and select "block this item").
Not sure about Yoono's social networking and personal recommendation sidebar addon; but XUL Profiler is the only Firefox addon I know that helps in finding the particular websites within my tabs that are eating up my computer's CPU - thanks! Not sure if others use XUL Profiler in this way. It's the closest that I can get right now to Google Chrome's individual tab process managing Task Manager - OK, it's not that close. (I can't use Chrome since it requires SP2 for Window XP [so I've been using the alternative SRWAre Iron], and I can't have SP2 because Microsoft detects my Windows as not genuine. Any solution for getting SP2 despite this problem?)
