First of all, I am on a 15" Powerbook G4 happily running OS X 10.5.6, with a 1.25 ghz processor and 1.25 GB of ram. Everything works like a charm 99.9% of the time, and I'm mightily pleased with the overall performance of the machine. However, the one minor problem I do have, is running Firefox. It runs; it doesn't crash or hang that often, but the problem I DO have with it is that it kind of...sticks. I don't know how to explain it, but sometimes it just does not run blazing fast. In activity monitor, I just checked and Firefox is using 180 MB of memory, whilst the kernel is running 110ish. I found it humorous that Firefox was using more memory than the kernel was. Anyway, I love firefox and it is my browser of choice. Thing is -- I wish I could get it to perform better. When I am not running Firefox, and running all the other programs I normally run (iTunes, Thunderbird, Adium, Snak, Dashboard and last.fm) the dock responds right away and is smooth looking. When firefox is being difficult, the dock kind of sticks when I bring it up. It's not a major problem but I'd like to be able to run the program flawlessly, as I am able to run every single other program I've tried to run on this machine. Long story short (sorry, I tend to be verbose) is there a way for me to maximize the memory, or something similar, to allow me to run Firefox perfectly or at least better?
