Questions and Answers :
Posted 5 Oct 2017 by Goodmans
I noticed my Firefox browser grounded to a near halt after a recent update. I would get errors when pages would download or sometime it would freeze all together. I noticed one day that when this happened my SETI BOINC software would also stop working. The task would say "CPU Busy" (or words to that effect).
I usually have SETI BOINC running the background on my PC when I work. Today I totally shut down the client and the performance of the Firefox browser dramatically improved. No more crashes and all webpages I access are flowing fine.
Anyone seen this before?
