Few tests on FF x64 - clean fresh startup takes ~350MB. With curvefever.io webpage loaded (pre-game, page where you can start or download), it is about ~395MB. After game launch to lobby, it jumps to about 880MB, then goes back to about 790MB.
In game, it stays on about 855MB.
I tried more games in a row, but never got over 890MB
just to add, my configuration is: FF x64 50.1.0 with Adblock, Ghostery, Greasmonkey (disabled by default), Firebug (disabled by default) and 4 more minor addons, which are also disabled by default and activates only when nneeded (but probably takes some ram on browser start)
So … 890MB, this is the peak I reached at frash startup … If I use my FF normally, I have like 1400 to 1900 MB, + if I add CF, it can be like 2300 … it is quite lot, but it should’t cause any failure at modern computers with at least 8GB ram and x64 system installed.
//EDIT missed zour UBUNTU sentence … so read the steps, but then continue on next post …
Try now theese stepps:
- Open task manager
(ctrl+alt+delete ->task manager), where you can read the RAM consumed by each process and open browser, half/half screen so you can look on game and on task manager
4)Write down RAM usage of FF at homepage.
- Write down RAM usage on curvefever.io splashscreen page
- Run game, login to lobby and write down RAM usage.
- Play game, write down peak ram usage
- Write down ram usage while the crash happens.
Then … if everything OK
Use your browser as usual. After like hour of using it, when its memory will be one mess, repeat the steps 4-8 with all other tabs open, just add one tab with game (on step 4, write down RAM usage status before opening new tab for game)
Write down the results.
Other important info:
How much RAM do you have installed?
What system you use? (not only win xp/7/8/10, but also a version, x64 or x86 - even I do not think someone will install x86 if he would not have a very good reason for it)
-This you can find in Computer/Properties (right click on Computer icon or in blank white space in file explorer where disks C: D: … are)
How much SWAP do you use?
Now, I will not be 100% accurate, beacuse I use localized version of OS:
Again, Computer/Properties, on the left side in menu links, there is something like “Advanced settings” … it should be the last link.
In the newly showed window, hit the middle tab, where Performance, User profiles and Launch Recovery options are. Hit the button near performance block. Again in new window, hit the middle tab, and dhere, in the bottom is a number, which shows the size of SWAP file, that windows can alocate. Write it here too…
Then, we shall see
