The obvious suggestion is to find out why your computer is so slow. Try top to see what the load is, how many tasks are running, and how much memory and cache is used. [by YBellefeuille]
For some odd reason, my pc was running a slow. Firefox was using a crap load of memory and cpu.
I only had 3 tabs open. And one of them i was on youtube listening/watching music videos.
I didn't have issues like this before (with my new build).
I have malwarebytes as well but it doesn't seem to slow my pc down.
Is there some issues with firefox that uses a butt load of memory.
Previously, on my desktop computer running Ubuntu 14.04, I had 4GB RAM, which I thought should be plenty. However, after being on for a while, my computer would seem to get slow. I have a system resource monitor app in my Gnome panel, which I assume represents the available RAM (?). It shows a dark green area as being "Memory", and a light green area as "Cache".
