Desktop one-click install FF crashes every few minutes

  • Posted April 17, 2014

I have an Ubuntu x64 one-click install. Firefox runs only for a few minutes at a time and just crashes, shuts down. Is this usual behaviour? I’ve upgraded kernel to 13, but still crashes… What should I do?

ah, that must be it, the size. It’s the smallest droplet.

It’s most likely running out of RAM. What plan is your droplet on? <br> <br><a href="https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-swap-on-ubuntu-12-04>Adding swap</a> should decrease the chances of firefox crashing if it runs out of memory however it will start to perform slowly once swap is used.
