KDE is not the memory hog that it used to be.

Thank you to let me know. But I can't find out why Firefox is so slow and CPU and the RAM are loaded I was looking on internet for problem like that and all was form 2018 nothing new. That's mean probably I'm the only person that have this problem lol

Have you done an update since your fresh installation of Ubuntu?
Updates fix stuff-:)

Maybe this will help with your FF being slow.



Hope that helps.
Thank you, definitely is up to date just for example, when I open Facebook and start scrolling down looking for old post let's say and the CPU going mad I know is old 2 core only but shouldn't do that. I never have this problem before and with Opera works just fine a bit better. Just Opera is not that smooth like FF Chrome. In the beginning I was paranoid someone is spying on me, but after putting Opera start working a bit better. If the work getting bad again even with Opera that's should mean I have problem with hacker, hope not

If your pc was taken over by a hacker you would know it.
They would be able to take control over the mouse and etc.

Your FF is up-to-date- so that looks good.

How old is your pc?

I got my start with Linux with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS just to show how long I've been using a Linux OS. I moved around a lot until I found my "Sweet Spot" with Debian 10 or my current system, MX 19.2 KDE which is based on Debian 10. Debian, as stated, is Rock Solid and that's why the International Space Station runs it. I think you've made a good choice starting with Ubuntu since it has a good, user friendly community but when you want to move on from it give Debian/Debian based Distros a try.

I will try Debian one day but will like first to get more knowledge form Ubuntu, because I can see that the Debian is for guys with more experience and I don't class my self as one but will give try to see how it will be working for me. Thank you

Was running ok, until didn't get too much spying and recording data attachments to it so the processor was start running to 100% and because the guys how make this, they attached all from the network, so all run under the processor, Big brother... now I found my Linux as TNFrank said in his comment. Sad to know that even Linux spying his own users... Nothing bad but they run big toys and make the small one useless.

I've never had any spying issues and I've been running Linux for about 12 years now.
Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu and I haven't had any problems in a year running it.

FWIW when I tried running Linux FX (distro that looks like Windows 10) my processor ran at 100% too.
As soon as I installed another distro the processor didn't run at 100% anymore.

If your not happy with Ubuntu maybe give Debian a spin.
There are so many distros at distrowatch that it's overwhelming.

Enjoy the day!

Good for you lucky guy :D as I said in my previous comment I found my Linux. All OS software spying on you and collect your data they are made to be this way it's called spyware. Even Debian asking you if you will be agree to do that, - sending your data, at last you can say no there, so showing that they care about your privacy. Anyway I'm not the person that have to explain all this for sure you know better then me I'm just a noobie in all this :D

All the source code for the Linux kernel is available.
All the source code for the gnu/utils is available.

Linux itself doesn't snoop on you, but that isn't to say some browsers and other applications do not.

Still, what OS doesn't? Do you think MacOS or Windows doesn't track you?

Ubuntu is running the Gnome Desktop and will use more RAM on cold boot than most other Desktop Environments. It's not spyware or collection of data, it just has more going on in the background so it'll use more RAM and CPU. MX is using Xfce so it's going to be lighter and will use less RAM and CPU to run. KDE has also become lighter weight over the years. If you like Ubuntu but don't like the CPU usage then maybe try Ubuntu MATE' or Kubuntu a try.
