You can't make a good argument for stealing copyrighted material BB. It is there for the taking but it is nothing to be proud of.

That would not have anything to do with the browser.

most days I have to do several browser restarts, sometimes hourly.
seems to happen more on fb than any other page.
a normal space on firefox.exe is about 450.000 to 500.000 k,
at start 250.000 k, when it goes beyond 600.000 k it slows down to almost stopping
from loading a site.

How much RAM on your system?
Is it swapping to disk when it slows down?

Yeah, great.
Anyone with a Yahoo account, who just might use the same password on other sites, better start changing passwords everywhere quick.

And hashed.
But still, put enough resources into it and few smart people and passwords can be figured out.

Interesting read,Linux vs Windows 10.
There's nothing wrong with Linux.
I use Ubuntu daily at work.

However, it's not a particularly friendly OS for the average user.

I can't see most user's preferring it over windows.
I prefer Windows 10 by miles for my personal machine.

Mac is more friendly in my view but even on that the file system sucks.

Linux is not for beginners.BTW,it is much safer than Windows which is why you most likely have it at work.
