filtering JavaScript

Post by tamarin_t » 2016/06/07 13:14:27

Is there a turnkey solution to blocking JavaScript external to the browser?

Sorry, no answer to your question, other than disabling JS from within the browser and/or not installing flash. If by low level access memory you mean kernel memory, it would be indeed a serious issue and a deadly bug. Most probably you're just experiencing a system slowdown due to intense use of resources. If you want to test that, just assign a low priority to the browser process with nice.

That would be some bug!

My suspicion would be that your (ten year old?) hardware is overheating when in heavy use - Firefox can be very resource hungry - and that's why it gets slow, or you have other hardware problems. Check your heatsinks and fans, and your logs for any hardware errors.
