chrome a good browser. Of course, if you install additional extensions, it will consume more resources. but look at the number of extensions certainly some do not seem to you superfluous. why he is so popular. make it to import bookmarks, and you do not lose anything.

Hi @pengie62

Try to reset your Mozilla. Open the below link and click on Refresh Firefox button.

Firefox is my number one choice of internet browser, I've had same issue before, the problem is a plugin installed on your Firefox browser, here's what you should do..
1. Reinstall your firefox.
2. Go to the menu on your firefox browser.
3. Click on extensions and disable all extensions
4. Click on plugins and deactivate all plugins
5. Restart your browser and browse for a while and watch if it behaves fine.
6. If it does behave fine, try activating and enabling your plugins one by one and find out which of the plugins or extensions is causing the issue.
7. With that you should be able to choose the right plugins and extensions needed to run your firefox smoothly.

1. Uninstall your firefox browser
2. Go to drive C:
3. Click on program files, if you're using a 64 bit os click program files(x86) and look for a folder named Mozilla Firefox & another named Mozilla Maintenance Services
4. Delete both
5. Download and install a fresh copy of firefox from their official site.

Chrome has lost its authority and popularity:
- he had long ceased to guarantee the confidentiality;
- a week ago, the administration Pale Moon has informed me that they officially refuse to Google search engine and use Google search - this is my personal choice (I left Google as an additional search engine);
- and Chrome and Mozilla and even Opera began to consume a lot of resources;
I chose as the main browser to Pale Moon.
This browser owes its birth differences in the group of authors and developers of Firefox.
The browser has retained the best qualities of Firefox and continues its development.
Privacy and protection at a high level.
I'm happy with.
Anyone who values rationality, speed and security this browser like.
This is not advertising.
I don't do advertising.
Browsers Chrome, Opera and Firefox also have in my Luggage + Maxthon (interesting, fast browser) & CyberGhost - for "covert operations" )))

OPERA and CHROME both are good choice ,but Mozilla different from both. Sometimes it crashed due to old version, and some times because of history, caches, plugin, scripts. According to your question, this is due to plugin container, So, if want to surfing through Firefox or other browser always choose and install trusty plugin to your browser. That keep your surfing smooth and secure.

Try these steps. They worked for me when I had an issue with the plugin container.
Uninstall Firefox.
Delete any programs folders associated with Firefox.
In Windows Explorer click on the view tab-click the hidden items box.
Go to users/your username/appdata/local and delete the Mozilla folder.
Go to users/your username/appdata/local and empty the temp folder.
Go to users/your username/appdata/roaming and delete the Mozilla folder.
Clean registry to remove any traces of Mozilla Firefox.
Reinstall the latest version of Firefox.
Open Firefox and go to tools/add-ons/plugins.
Click the link "check to see if your plugins are up to date"
