I have a same problem with Google and Yahoo search pages, particularly with images. The pages takes 5-10 seconds to load, and firefox.exe consumes 50%-60% CPU making Firefox temporarily locked up. Disabling WebRep in Firefox solves the problem as does reverting to Avast 7.0.1472. IE seems OK.


XP SP3 3.0 Ghz 4.0 GB RAM (3.5 usable) 256 MB VRAM 30 Mbps cable connection Avast 7.0.1474 Outpost free 6.5.1 Firefox 16.0.2

No problem here with Athlon ii 2x 250 and 8GB RAM.

W7-SP1, Firefox 17.0 b3 is showing about 700,000 virtual memory usage  but I have had anywhere from 10 - 15 tabs open so I would expect the virtual memory to be higher.   Surfing and searching in Bing is smooth

Bing is better :)

A Dual core processore 4GB RAM and a graphics card with at least .5GB RAM are the absoulute least amount of CPU cores and RAM one should use with W7 SP1 for decent surfing performance

Hi,
probably I can confirm the bug or a memory leak in avast web-rep combinated with firefox 16.0.2.
Can anyone test this situation (for example..)
1. open search of google images
2. search for avast (for example) and set to search images larger than 2mpx (or 4mpx).
3. the system begin to be unstable (more unstable if I scroll the page), and firefox process go over 900Mb in process manager.
4. if we uninstall avast webrep and repeat point 1 to 2 there's no evidence of what I explain in point 3.
I've tested it on three different computers.

Ok thanks, I have tested and I confirm

Has anyone solved this issue? Can anybody from the avast team explain what we have to with this problem?

You may uninstall Avast Webrep until they get it fixed.  This is what I did and Firefox is now working fine on my system (Win7 64x).  ;)

I have the same problem with WebRep. It slows down Firefox every time I do a search on Google. Google's Autocomplete takes a while to load and causes Firefox to hang for a bit. I checked and it made Firefox consume 50% CPU load. It only seems to happen on Google for me. The rest seem fine. I'm glad to find out I'm not the only one having issues with this.

I've disabled webrep and no problems. Facebook was like trawling through treacle with it on.
