Memory Leak associated with internet browser application

My internet explorer browser (or firefox browser)works well for an hour or so, but then the browser continues to eat up memory until everything slows down and eventually doesn't work on my computer. You can see the browser starts out by using about 70,000k in the mem usage tab of the Windows Task Manager, but then slowly climbs to above 200,000k over an hour or two until I have to close the browser process in order to use my computer. Once I close and relaunch the browser it will be good for another hour or two until the mem usage grows once again on the browser process.

The version of the Mozilla firefox which is installed on the computer must be corrupt due to which the browser is not working properly. All the applications which are installed on the computer have lot of files which are associated to it. If any of the files which are associated to the browser gets corrupt or is missing on the computer then the browser will not work properly. Replace all the files which are corrupt or missing on the system and then check if the browser is working properly or not. Uninstall the browser and remove all the files and keys associated to the application. Once all the traces of the application are removed, reinstall the browser and see if it works properly.Sometimes the add-on/applications installed on the browser create problems which you are facing. Some files of the browser are corrupt and if such an application is installed on the browser, it will definitely corrupt the files of the browser. If such a situation occurs then the browser will not work properly. Mozilla firefox has a diagnostic mode which is known as safe mode. In safe mode all the applications/add-ons are disabled. Start the browser in safe mode, to start the browser in safe mode, type "firefox.exe/safemode". If the browser works properly in safe mode then find and remove the application which is creating problem.Follow these steps and let me know if it works Open Windows Explorer. Click on Tools and then select Folder options. Now select Files Types tab.Check if the HTTP is highlighted or not.Now Select Advanced. Check if the Open is highlighted in the Action box.Select Edit.Remove the check mark from Use DDE and then click on Browse.Select the location of Mozilla firefox and click on OK. Check if the path of Mozilla appears in the Applications tab.Now click on the path and add url 1 ending with double quotes.Click on OK. Repeat the same procedure for HTTP with Privacy.Now the there would be no problem in opening the links of Outlook Express in Mospeaceszilla firefox.

I cannot log into Facebook for the last few hours dur to site issues...any advice please would be appreciated ?


Good Day Farrell!

That is normal if Facebook is undergoing its server maintenance.

But if that problem is internet browser issues, I do advise you to use other internet browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to sign in to Facebook.com.

Listed below are the most common internet browser download sites that you can access to download to use as your new internet browser.

1. Internet Explorer Download

2. Mozilla Firefox Download

3. Google Chrome Download

When i try to open facebook said problem in loading page .but i can open other browser.


If you have older browsers like Internet Explorer 6 or 7 - they will quite often show errors while opening. You can try to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 (for Windows XP) or Internet Explorer 9 (Windows Vista and Windows 7).
Opera browser strictly follow standards and sometimes doesn't support non-standard web applications.
Therefore I would recommend to use either Google Chrome or Firefox 4 as your default browser. As for the above mentioned browsers - Opera and Internet Explorer there are no easy solutions for now.

I play a game on facebook, and every time I go into the game, a screen says my plugin has crashed. What do I do to fix it?


Depend on your OS. If is Windows IE, some issues has found on this.

Try this :
our version of Windows is either a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system. A 64-bit operating system can run both 32-bit applications and 64-bit applications.Your browser, such as Internet Explorer, is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Flash Player works only with a browser that is a 32-bit application. On a 32-bit operating system, your browser is always a 32-bit application. However, on a 64-bit operating system, your browser is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Make sure you are using a 32-bit browser by following these instructions:

Windows with Internet Explorer
To make sure you are using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
  1. In Internet Explorer's Help menu, select Help > About Internet Explorer. (In some versions of Internet Explorer, select the question mark in the upper right corner to select About Internet Explorer).

    ieversion2.gif
  2. If you do not see the words "64-bit Edition" next to the version number, you are running a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.
  3. If you do see the words "64-bit Edition", go to Flash Player on 64-bit operating systems (TechNote 6b3af6c9) to continue troubleshooting your Flash Player installation.
Windows with other browsers, such as Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera
No official 64-bit version of these browsers is currently available on 64-bit Windows operating systems. Therefore, unless you are using a test version of a browser (not typical), your browser is a 32-bit application, and therefore, works with Flash Player. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.

2. Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any

Before you troubleshoot Flash Player installation, determine the version of Flash Player you have installed, if any. You can see if it is working and whether it is the latest version available for your operating system. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about. If you have already successfully installed Flash Player, the page displays the Adobe Flash Player version as shown in the following image:
    flasht23.jpg
    Note: The version number in this example might be different than the version you have installed.

    If you have not successfully installed Flash Player, you will not see the image.
  1. The same page http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about has a table that shows the latest Flash Player version available for your operating system (for example, Windows or Macintosh) and your browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox). If the version information shown in step 1 does not match the latest version shown in the table, upgrade to the latest version. To upgrade, continue to Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player.
Note:Internet Explorer uses a different Flash Player than other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Therefore, if you sometimes use Internet Explorer and sometimes use another browser, you might have installed a different version of Flash Player for Internet Explorer than for other browsers.
red-line-22.png
3. Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player

Before you install Flash Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. Follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. For Flash Player uninstall instructions, see Uninstall Flash Player (TechNote tn_14157).
  2. Restart your computer after uninstalling.
  3. If you are using Internet Explorer, continue to Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings. Otherwise, continue to Download and install Adobe Flash Player.

red-line-23.png
4. Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings (skip for other browsers)

Make sure that Internet Explorer security default level is set to Medium. This level allows viewing ActiveX controls, such as Flash Player. To set browser security to Medium, perform the following steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Select Trusted Sites zone.
  5. Select the Default Level button. (If the Default Level button is dimmed, continue to the next step).
  6. Move the slider until the security level is Medium.
  7. Select Apply.
  8. Select the Internet zone.
  9. Repeat steps 5 - 7. When done, select OK.

Application not found


I just now fixed this problem in my laptop. This happens if u download any other Internet Browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and uninstalled it. follow these steps to fix it..

>Open Internet Explorer >Go in Tools

>Internet Options >Program Tab

>Under 'Default Web Browser' Click on 'Make Default' Button

>Tick on 'Tell me if Internet Explorer not the default web browser'

>Apply

>OK .

This should solve the Application not found error in programs such as Yahoo Messenger, etc. Basically this error is because Internet Explorer is not your Default Browser & there is no other Web Browser installed on your computer to open the Link you clicked on :)

Please explain what is meant when a person requests me to "open your browser" Where is it? on my computer? Thanks Carol


Applications like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Googlechrome are called Browsers. When you are asked to open the browser, it simply means to open any of the above mentioned application, maybe Internet explorer or firefox or googlechrom etc..... etc.. When you are asked to do so, just double click the application or open it from the "All Programs" by clicking "Start" on your "desktop"

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
