HW acceleration stop working after awhile?

Unread post by SGvagon » 2019-05-11, 21:11

Hello,

I have big issue in Palemoon (I don't know from what version) , but when I am using Palemoon for few minutes/hours (it's totally random times) and then I try some video on Youtube or Twitch stream, CPU usage is on 60-90% (normally I have 10-20%) . Looks like that HW acceleration is turning off.

After restart Palemoon, I don't have this problem (for awhile of coarse) .

I think, that this issue doing Facebook page, because when I open Facebook, all Palemoon slowing down and then very often any Youtube video or stream/Twitch stream using 60-90% CPU .

It's hard to find from what moment I have this issue.

Yes, I tried clean PM and Palemoon portable. In portable version I think, that this problem not so frequent, but is there too.

I have actually laptop (Lenovo Y50-70) with Core i5 4210H , Nvidia GTX960M 4GB , 8GB RAM , 1TB HDD with Windows 7 PRO x64bit. And the latest Palemoon 28.5.0 32bit.

Thank you in advance.

Btw. if this helps, Palemoon start eats lots of RAM. I have open only Facebook, Youtube and this PM forum and Palemoon eats 1,6 GB RAM.

Ok, I don't have this issue for a 2 weeks. FB must doing some changes on my profile, because from today FB videos works for me on Palemoon. So this problem is solved now too.
