Why is it taking up 87gb of space?
I had to reinstall firefox because it was having issues, so i uninstalled it and used chrome to download it again. When i downloaded it and started to install it, i noticed it was taking a long time and was taking up a lot of space.
It took a total of 87gb of space. I dont know why. I tried uninstalling it, and it was working fine up untill it froze. I couldn't stop the uninstallation so i just logged off and logged back on. Now i can't uninstall it at all.
It has to be some sort of file glitch, or something of the sort. It can't be a virus, when was the last time you saw a 87gb virus? I downloaded it straight from mozilla.com. There's just no way.
Any help with this?
