Wie das RAM-Problem zu beheben sei, wird auch beschrieben:
- Limit RAM usage. If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us. Again, go to about:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. It’s set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.
- Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized. This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go. Again, go to about:config, right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean. Name it “config.trim_on_minimize” and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

Remote Access: Intel iMac arrives!
A long 2 weeks after ordering, the boxes showed up and it has all been set up. Unfortunately, through an extremely busy last week of school before our spring break begins (no school next week!), I haven’t really had a chance to push this machine to see what it can really do. It has a 256 mb. video card, an Intel duo core chip, 1 gb of RAM, a 250 gb hard drive and a 20 inch screen so I’m looking forward to putting this machine through the paces.
