He doesn't have to answer...
Ok, he doesn't 'have to', but I'm asking his 'opinion' as a favor...

Hi Tech,

Sure will to the best of my abilities. P3t3R meant well, but what he proposes has to do with CPU consumption, and older problems for which you had resize the browser window to make it consume less. This is in various textbooks, but this was not the crux of the problem our bob3160 was struggling with, it was not a conflict of add-ons and browser but a known bug in the way the browser executable keeps running in Task Manager reacting to something it should not react to, that is what the patch I suggested to bob3160 actually does: ignore a false. If P3t3Rs' story was valid a restore of my profile folder with the Febe extension would have cured bob3160's problem, it did not.
I hope this helps to give you an idea of what happened here,

Hi Damien,
Unfortunately, Febe is the program that kept crashing Firefox on my system.
I'm about to uninstall it now.  :'(

Hi bob,

Maybe you have too much options running, then it will not function with me either.
Glad your FF is still up and running. But if it is not doing what it should take it off.

I don't have any problems with Firefox. I had an annoyance which has been solved thanks to Damien.  :)

It's possible... for sure some extensions reduce the browsing speed...
