    Your second screen shot shows a lot less memory usage than the first one but it's still real high. Maybe it's because of the number of extensions you're running. Here's a list of extensions that I use. These are all the latest versions. I use the latest Firefox Beta version. A lot of extensions don't install on it. I wouldn't recommend using it unless you're comfortable with using test software.

    Adblock Plus
    Coral IE Tab: I have to use this one because it works with Firefox 3.6.4.
    .Net Framework Assistant: came with Firefox but I disabled it because it has a security flaw.
    New Glasser by SzymekPL: Gives the whole Window Border the Aeroglass look.
    Nightly Tester Tools: I have to use this because it makes my extensions work on the latest Firefox Beta.
    NoScript: This blocks Javascripts unless I tell it to allow them.
    Personal Menu: I put all my Menu items in one little button and disabled the Menu Bar to save window space.
    Webmail Notifier: It lets me know if I have any mail on Gmail.
    Xmarks; A bookmark synchronizer.

    Reghakr and I both say you have way too many extensions installed. I don't even know what most of those extensions do. I will say this. You don't need any download helpers because the download manager in Firefox works fine without any help. Firefox also has a good Popup Blocker built in. Plus as long as you stay on top of the Spyware Situation you're all set.

    I'd install only those that you really need. If you don't have a lot of RAM your browser is using a big percentage of it. It's bound to slow your system down a little.

    And sorry not interresting in a firefox version that doesn't support most of my extensions.

    I think that firefox use this amount of memory because of flash animations...

    If you find a solution to Windows 7 lost of focus (as it is the main subject of this topic), I'll be glad to test it.

    Thanks

    Well it's up to you. Personally I'm a bit of a minimalist. I wasn't thinking that this was a reason for your WMP problem. I was just a little shocked when I saw how much memory it was using.

    You might try System File Checker for that WMP thing.

    But it doesn't seem like a Windows issue to me. I had something going on like that years ago. This little button would show up on my taskbar and would steal the focus from whatever I was doing. I never did find out what the problem was but after I reinstalled my whole system it never came back. I was suspicious of an updater for my HP printer software. I was really quite a newb back then. But I'm still a bit of a newb.

    Hello,

    Just to prove that firfox large amount of memory is due to flash animations look how much it takes when there no more tabs with flash in them :

    [​IMG]

    I also tried the System File Checker and here what I've got :

    [​IMG]

    And this is the two remarquable line in the result log :
    Should I do something else than reboot ?

    Thanks for showing that to me. I didn't realize animations used so much memory. I stand corrected.

    Does that say it will fix it with a reboot? If so you're all set. It would have told you if there was something it can't fix. I hope it fixes your problem.
