P3Dv4 + Mozilla FPS Killer

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I`m having this issue where while I`m using P3D and for some reason open Mozilla Firefox to look for anything or just to navigate through the internet, it kills my FPS literally sometimes reducing them for over 10 FPS.

Is there any way to fix this?

 

Thank you so much in advance!

I don't have that issue using chrome. There's nothing you can do to P3D to change it - it's either your browser or your system.

I use Firefox and P3Dv4.2.  Never had any issues such as you described.

With that said, I would check your compatability of your video card. Lockheed Martin recommend that for running P3Dv4.x you have at least 8 MB video ram.

That is NOT to say you can't use less but the recommendation on their website is 8MG.

Less than that and if trying to use P3D and Firefox at the same time might create some problems.

I turn off hardware accelleration in my Firefox, that solved it for me.  It can be a bit of a pig and fight for access to the GPU otherwise.
