Reply To: Firefox 21.0 Beta 4
Yes, I think it is tied into Flash. The site is supposed to update about every 6 minutes — and there is a count-down counter in the lower right of the screen. It should reset when it reaches zero, and sometimes it does, sometimes not. When it doesn’t, there is a big increase in download activity on the network, and at times the number of TCP connections gets real absurd. Here is a shortened link to what I run: http://moourl.com/BufRADAR.
Firefox may crash early on, or it may take awhile — but if you let it run, it will crash! I have disabled most of the add-ons I have, and the Linux installation is running without any of those. With that, I get a message about a script being busy or may have stopped responding.
