All looking great. However are all these changes the cause why my vgchartz tabs keep crashing in Firefox? Not that it matters, restore tab and its back, but it seems these pages have a build in self destruct timer :)

It could just be Firefox. Just now this page would not display at all, black screen. After restarting FireFox it loads just fine. It's weird though it's always vgchartz tabs that crash. I have too many tabs open I guess, 37 atm. I kinda bookmark things by leaving them open :/

It is best we figure out the issue as it could be happening with everyone that uses Firefox.

Same!

I'm a fellow firefox user and I haven't noticed any page issues though.

It might be triggered by my laptop going idle. It's when I minimize the browser, watch some tv, come back and a vgchartz tab has crashed. It happened one more time yesterday on this thread, which was the one that was 'active' with the browser minimized for a while. I'm using 74.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10. According to the task managaner

Firefox has 6 instances in use atm totaling 1.2 GB of memory. I just stressed it by re-activating all open tabs, now 4.5 GB in use in 11 instances, but no issues. No clue.

Edit: I wouldn't worry about. Just now a different tab crashed while the browser was in the background. The 'active' tab seems to crash when FF has a lot of memory in use while sitting in the background. Thus not a VGChartz specific problem, I just have this site 'active' a lot.

Just for the record, I haven't had any crashes here and I use Firefox. That said, I also have a some extensions that might play their part, but who knows.

I can tell you that I ALWAYS have dozens of tabs open in Chrome - in fact, I almost always have so many tabs open, I wind up opening another browser window, just so I can open even MORE tabs!! LOL!!!! So yeah, I certainly am experienced with the multi-tasking of dozens and dozens of tabs - BUT, I rarely (if ever) use Firefox these days.

I will make an effort over the next few days to abuse my FF browser and see if I can get this to happen (if for no other reason, just to satisfy my curiosity). I have FF 74 as well, but I'm running on a Mac, so we'll have to see if that makes a difference (I do have a Windows 10 VM, which I can test with as well)...



Appreciate the work boy-o's.
