    I use Firefox as my main browser and usually have many tabs open. It has always crashed occasionally but since about a Month ago, it started crashing several times a Day with reports showing RAM error despite it only using 2 Gig out of 32 Gig system RAM. A Google search showed many people with similar issues and many suggestions were available. The best was to go for the 64bit version that Firefox don’t make easy to find. Now it’s installed, it’s happily using upto 5 Gig RAM and about 25% of the processor it was using before. It’s much faster and, most importantly, stable 🙂

    Moral of the story – if you have a 64bit system and use the 32bit Firefox, update to the 64bit version
