On firefox memory leaks cause blue screens?


If you encounter blue screen crashes, this majority refers often to an incompatibility with a device driver, especially the graphics drivers. Go to Firefox Safe Mode and disable the use of Firefox hardware acceleration of graphics.

Assuming that Firefox is closed:

Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox. You should get a small dialog box. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not reset).

(If Firefox is running, use Help > restart with disabled modules to call the dialog box.)

In Firefox, open the Options of the Advanced tab dialog box:

the button Firefox orange (or the Tools menu) > Options > advanced

In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.

This will take effect after you exit Firefox and start it up again (in normal mode).

  • Skype causes Blue Screen of Death after a while in a call.

    Hello, I am currently having a problem with my Skype where it will make my computer BSOD after a while in a call, it only occurs during Skype calls, not during other communications programs of voice as the voice of steam call and the blue screen is more likely to happen when I'm in Firefox.

    The blue screen error I get is "clock interrupt was not receieved a secondary processor in the time interval allowed."

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I did clean install applicable drivers and even tried to Exchange pieces of equipment (including the negotiation on an old CPU and RAM value) and no change.

    Fortunately, a solution to the problem, which has been swicthing on Google Hangouts. They work much better because there is no decrease in performance, even streaming, has more features and does not cause a blue screen after a couple of hours.

    Hello fellow Firefox users!

    For most of us, Firefox suffers from a memory leak crazy, this can cause slowdown and perhaps even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close the tabs, the RAM, they took is always taxing your computer. Among other things cause this annoying leakage.

    But when I boot windows 7, it shows the windows symbol and then it shows the blue screen with the error

    If I replace memory corsair with the memory that has been delivered with the laptop the system only works very well.
    Corsair memory is not compatible with the system?
    I have a dual boot and installed ubuntu on this subject. Ubuntu loads perfectly fine, but after a while the system restarts automatically (IE open application).
    I tried memorytest86 to test the memory, but the application continue to crash and reboot and does not provide any results.
    Help, please.

    The RAM is not compatible. The system allows a maximum total memory of 8 GB and uses DDR3-1333 which downclocks at 1066 speed. You cannot use a single module of 8 GB. 4 gigs is the large single module supports the system. I suspect the memory that you have will work fine if you had modules of 2 x 4 GB instead of a single module of 8 GB. That's why memtest is not finished. The controller memory motherboard is not able to take up 8 GB of RAM by a single channel.

  • Updates to Windows Firefox blocking systems to blue screen since 09/02/10

    Since Windows 7 updates tonight (09/02/10) I have blue screen crashes when you run the Mozilla Firefox browser. It started just this evening with the latest Windows updates. I have reported this here and on Mozilla and hope that someone set quickly. If this isn't the case, I'll have to restore both of my laptops to the restore point before applying updates. We running Windows Home Premium 32 bit, and the other is WHP 64-bit, so I know the issue is not limited to one specific machine.

    This has nothing to do with your problem if you can start your computer Win7 (not Firefox) without getting a BSOD.

    Ntoskrnl.exe is a component of Windows which means than anything else he has led astray. More likely

    List of tools to clean/uninstall anti-malware programs

    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leaving Standard, Web, and
    Operation of the network.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Two versions of Avast are available 5.x and 4.8 x

    Avast - home - free - 5.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK

    Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
    and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
    Finish those you don't use).

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.
    http://www.prevx.com/   <-->
    http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp  <-->

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice
    http://www.PCMag.com/Article2/0, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.


    I hope this helps.

Devices audio conexant could not be recognized, and if I run the installation of the latest audio drivers (sound-20080604145033), it fixes the problem, but when you restart the system and login as administrator I get a blue screen.
