OK guys and girls, the solution for the "End Program - n" problem for those of you running WinXP with Firefox versions 3.5 to 3.6 is found in the following
links:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...s/display/9609

http://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/...high_cpu_usage

Bottom line: Disable or Remove Ghostery add-on until the fix is in fruition.

It took me a while to find out the solution as everyone wants to read more into the problem than actually exists. Sure hope that this helps all of you with XP and Firefox.

Doubt thats the answer. Since I've never heard of it. And I doubt everyone who's getting this end program message uses it

Excellent Answer to both links (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Addon.jpg) :lol: (BTW - I'm being sarcastic).

Speedy,

You know a lot, but you don't know everything. You certainly know more than I do. I had the problem and the solution I posted worked for me, that's why I posted it. Hopefully, it will work for some others too.

Your statement: "Doubt thats the answer. Since I've never heard of it. And I doubt everyone who's getting this end program message uses it" is ludicrous.

Take time to read all that is posted carefully, including what is in the links. I believe that 32 other people had the problem and it solved it for them. It's not an all-out solution.

Your smugness and mister know-it-all attitude will prevent you from reaching your full potential in life.

I just tested them and if they don't work it may be because of you two.

I may be a junior member but I would never lead people astray.

Doubt thats the answer. Since I've never heard of it. Gosh, if you haven't heard of it before, then it mustn't be the answer. :rolleyes: It's a bit over the top to think that Speedy.


Anyhoo, try not to shoot the new guy down in flames. They are only trying to be helpful which is what this forum is all about.

http://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/topics/firefox_3_6_beta_5_ghostery_not_allowing_firefox_t o_be_released_high_cpu_usage These ones work - the first ones didn't.

The possible fixes may work for someone else who has the same problem - only time well tell I spose.

Sometimes a fix that works for one person doesn't for someone else -- Takes all the "fun" out of it if one fix for all works ;)

I disabled ghostery a few days ago and it fixed firefox for me.

I agree, I've never heard of it and I don't have it installed as an add-on yet I still get the problem... so I'm inclined to think that this isn't the cause of the issue. So in Speedy's defense I think there is more to the problem than we all may be led to believe... and this is what he is inferring by his statement.



Speedy,

Your smugness and mister know-it-all attitude will prevent you from reaching your full potential in life.

As far as Speedy's smugness and mister know-it-all attitude... quite frankly he's earned the right here on PF1.... there is no-one more helpful than him on here. Just about everyone here as been given sound advice and/or help from Speedy with great results.

I am having the same problem with the ever illusive program n and it is irritating me to no end. This thread is the only one to come close to an answer, although I never installed ghostery into firefox in the first place. I ran Malwarebytes and it came back clean. Speedy...Help?

Don't know if this is going to help anyone but I have done the following and I haven't gotten the error since.

I have the following extensions installed;
1) Adblock Plus 1.1.3
2) Download Helper 4.7
3) Java Quick Starter 1.0
4) MS .NET Framework Assistant 1.1
5) PC Sync 2 Synchronisation Extenstion 1.0.0.723
6) Winamp Toolbar 5.6.11.2

I have disabled all but 1, 3, and 4 and have not gotten an error. The memory usage for Firefox has also stopped creeping to like 200MB+ if I leave the browser open.

This may not fix the issue for everyone, obviously depending on what you have/have not got installed, but it seems to have worked for me.

Cheers,
