Whilst half way through playing BBO I couldn't"click" on a card. The mouse froze. I checked my Activity Monitor (IOS System) and it showed 45GB of RAM usage!!! I have 16GB of RAM installed. What was going on? Had to shut down. Brand new 500GB SSD just fitted.

Same

I've experienced multiple freezes over the past couple weeks and my system is constantly warning about excessive RAM usage

This happened to me when another TSR app was also running in the background and suddenly decided it had work to do.
GDrive sync was the offender in my case.

When I shut down all other tabs and stop everything else - even with my terrible internet connection - it works fine.

this happens also very often to TDs, especially when making an adjustment and has many calls

Certainly in Chrome, BBO has a smaller memory footprint than Facebook and GMail.

I don't work for BBO and any advice is based on my BBO experience over the decades
