As a blogger, marketer or a researcher, we need a fast system and a super fast internet connection to make our work much easier. If you are using a slow computer, you’re bound to get frustrated and bored with your work – true fact.
At times we’ll have a perfect system that is fast enough and a good internet connection to go with it but still have a browser that crashes a lot, why? If you are using Mozilla Firefox as your default browser, you’ll get this crashing issue a lot – especially when you have those awesome add-ons/ toolbar/ extension installed.

Last month on my research, i was trying to reduce my social share load by installing some add-ons recommended to me by my buddy (name withheld), I installed a couple of add-ons to my Firefox. I know you must be wondering what and what add-on I installed? Some of the few I installed are => Firebug, yslow, imacros, buffer, pocket… and the list goes on. My browsing experience was going on fine until suddenly, my Firefox starts crashing every 20minutes. Now tell me how frustrating can that get! Installing all these add-ons made my most favorite browser much heavier than normal.
Your Browser Keep Crashing? Try This Simple Solution
If your browser’s getting problem like crashing, dragging or hanging, then this solution will be the perfect fit. Below are some solutions that can boost your browser’s experience. So if you’re ready, let’s get the ball started…
Reduce your add-ons and extensions:
Add-ons and extensions can help a blogger’s life much more relaxing and easier, especially when you know the right and most effective add-ons to use. Still these add-ons can make your blogging experience a living hell :). But seriously, too much of add-ons can slow down your browser heavily, and may eventually lead to regular crashing.
When your browser crashes regularly while working, it will extend your work time and leave you frustrated. And the fact is, nobody wants that or do you?
Solution: Reduce your add-ons and extensions to its minimum. But if you love those add-ons or you are finding it difficult to let go, then share the add-ons between two browsers. Get a Firefox and a Chrome browser share these add-ons to both browsers. By doing this, it will reduce the load on your browser and give you that experience you first had when you bought that system.
Clear your browser’s cache and history:
Believe it or not, your cache, cookies, history, website data… can slow a browser down and as well as your computer.
Keeping your browser history for too long will eventually increase your cpu usage and make your pc 3x slower than what it used to be. And keeping your history for too long will make your browser drag, hang or seize from time to time and nobody want that.
Solution: Nobody wants to work on a system that hangs or drag anytime they are working, right? So it is best to clear your browser history once a week and how do you do this?
On Mozilla Firefox: simultaneously press the ctrl+shift and the delete key. Pressing those keys will bring a box like the image below. Just click the “Clear Now” button and you’re done
On Chrome: simultaneously press the ctrl+H key to bring out your browser history. Now click the “Clear browsing data”, see the image below.
By clearing your browser history, you will see the positive changes in your pc and browser speed.
Disable the automatic update of your browser:
Do you know that automatic update slows down your pc speed? Yes it does, and your browsers too can slow down or drag if the auto update is on.
Updating your browsers, extensions and add-on should be done manually to help your browser work much better and also give you the user experience you always wish for 🙂
