(Virtualbox) - Firefox - Freeze

Problem on newest Virtualbox; - External Firefox and Virtualbox freeze! Does not work together!


Hi ef86

Could you please provide more details.

  • Does this mean Whonix and/or Tor Browser also freezes or is this just virtualbox/firefox
  • What version of Virtualbox?
  • How did you install Virtualbox?
  • Do other apps freeze with whonix with this VBOX version
  • Any other details that you think would be helpful?

You mean Whonix running inside VirtualBox and Firefox on the host (outside of VirtualBox) will lead to freeze?

Sounds like a low RAM issue. The number of tasks your computer can perform at the same time is limited by system resources such as CPU, HDD and RAM. Try to

  • terminate other unneeded applications
  • find out what wastes RAM
  • add more RAM
