Re: [K12OSN] Firefox crashes

  Thank you Jim. I tried all three. 8192 and 4068 gave similar results - complete crash & lock when loading a big firefox page. 3072 won't even start the client, though at least there I can press 'enter' to have it try again (unsuccessfully).

  As an aside, the reason I was using system RAM is because I thought, in the case of integrated devices, they were shared.
