Freezing from resource usage spikes.

Unread postby RexyDallas » Tue, 19 Jun 2018, 23:14

Some time ago, I made a bug report about random freezing. I now know that random freezing is caused by resource usage spikes. Though it doesn't always happen, when it starts happening, I have to restart the browser for it to stop happening. The browser will have CPU and memory spikes from basically any activity, including opening a new tab, typing text, navigating to a URL, or pausing/playing a YouTube video. Sometimes, it spikes for seemingly no reason.

To give an idea of how big the spike is, the idle CPU usage will be around, say, 10-15 percent, and the base ram usage will be 2,000-2,500MB. When I do basically anything, the CPU usage will spike to 30-35%, and the ram usage will spike to 3,000-3,500 MB.

I'm sorry but we can't really do anything with your report as it doesn't contain any usable details.

Though we can always reccomend as usual to try using safe mode or a clean profile and report back.
Worst it can happen is that nothing changes.
