    Possibility the issue lies on your sys specs. I suggest a hardware upgrade.
    The number of replies is too high (22), better tag it as Unsolved.
    If you have further questions, please start a new thread.

    Sorry for the inconvenient.

    This script sums the amount of Ram usage, and displays the output on Desktop. Add it as a cronjob

    Ram_usage.png

    In case you want to try, just let me know.
    Btw, verified by @Ruarí, just in case.
    That doesn't fix the issue



  • @lamarca Cron job? I'm not that technical when it comes to Linux. 🙂

    I ran those commands when the hard drive activity light began to light up (more or less) non-stop. It took quicker for Chromium than it did for Vivaldi.

    Otherwise, Vivaldi and Chromium run fine under normal browsing.

    Cron job?

    Cron executes "tasks" at a particular time.
    More details on Man Pages🐧



  • @lamarca I know what a cron job is, it's just that I consider myself an end-user of Linux. In the past, when I first used it, if I inadvertently broke something, I simply reinstalled the OS. 😁

    We are permanently learning new things, but .... no end user:)

    Well ... depends on what sort of instructions Cron was told to run. That was scheduled ..... by you

    ...when Linux was installed by me. 🙂

    And yes, we all learn something new.
