Multiple Instances of Iron in Task Manager

Postby be4con » Tue May 11, 2010 8:02 pm

Whenever I run Iron I get multiple (>10) instances of Iron.exe appearing as processes in Task Manager.

I thought initially it was just 1 instance per tab but even with just a single tab open they remain, though the number of instances does increase when I open more tabs. For example I have 10 tabs open currently and 21 instances of iron.exe in Task Manager.

It's really slowing my system down. Any ideas how to fix this?

There are other processes in Iron visible in task manager than just Tab instances. Some plugins require separate processes. You may see by yourself what processes are responsible for when you put "about:memory" in URL.

Also some extensions get their own processes; right-click the top bar of SRWare Iron and choose "Task Manager" to see

Among the extensions that get their own processes...
Adblock+ Element Hiding Helper (I don't think SRWare Iron's built-in ad blocker includes element-hiding rules)
Firebug Lite 1.3.0 beta
XML Tree
Lorem Ipsum Generator
Webpage Screenshot
Something Awful Last Read
Eye Dropper
IE Tab (the one from Blackfish, not "IE Tab Classic")
TinEye Reverse Image Search
