Firefox vs Memory

Hi,

1. I'm using a gigabyte Mb GA M52L-53, AMD Athlon X2 5000, DDR II Kingston 2gb PC5300, with Windows XP Sp3.

2. Last night, I just bought and install 2 x 1gb DDR II MCPRO PC5300 memory, and put it together with my DDR II Kingston 2gb PC5300 so I can upgrade my pc performance.

3. First it's fine, MB detect the change, but the weird part is the memory just add only 1,5gb not 2 gb. Why?

4. Performance is good, but than when I open firefox, it became crash king all the time, no matter what I do, browsing, upload, or download, everything just crash.

5. I tried other browser like opera, chrome, and IE, same thing happen, they crash (opera hangs, IE hangs, and chrome just wont start)

Why is this happening?

    do both type of memory have the same timing?

    32-bit OS only will recognize 3.5 GB
