How to fix CRXDE performance issues

Is CRXDE too slow or is not loading at all? Try these steps below to possibly fix the issue.

Make sure the crxde:paths property doesn’t include anything that you dont want to load in CRXDE.

  • Open the Content Explorer and browse to¬†/etc/crxde/profiles/default, on the right hand panel there will be the crxde:paths property, this defines what nodes CRXDE will try to load. Having nodes like /content will make it slow/unresponsive.

Locate and open the CRXDE.ini file and assign more memory to CRXDE.

  • On OSX right click on CRXDE.app and select Show Package Contents.
  • Browse to Contents/MacOS
  • Open the CRXDE.ini file and change the values for Xms, Xmx and the MaxPermSize to suit your needs and what your system will support.

Delete the .crxde folder

  • CRXDE created a hidden .crxde folder under the users home directory.
  • Delete that folder

Start CRXDE from command line.

  • Open -a CRXDE –args -clean (This is for OSX only)

Hope this helps. Please leave a comment/question and I will try to answer them as soon as I can.
