When I open Firefox on Raspberry Pi 3 my Raspberry Pi devices restarts.

Is there any issue with RAM or does it not support Firefox in raspberry Pi 3?

  • Which version of Firefox are you using, on which operating system?

    I would once again bet on power supply. You need more power (and a good power supply) RAM issues would not restart the machine everytime you open Firefox - But high CPU usage can cause brown out every single time.

  • I am glad that it solved your problem. I wonder how many view this question will have in 12 months and how many people will have the same solutions :D Power supply is a nightmare with the Pi's
