Okay. I've got an issue with the spellchecker that seems to be a bug. I installed the dictionary, and made sure it was on. However it won't detect even things like gfhjrjdjd as being misspelled. It's really annoying. It doesn't seem to be able to detect text boxes - even this one. There is no option to enable it with right click.

Firefox huge memory consumption - who's lying ?

I try to keep always open some tabs in Firefox,, probably already too many (it's not unusual to have 25-30 tabs opened, each having it's internet page). I'm using Firefox up-to-date on Windows 10 Home already at version 20H2.

So, quite quickly Task Manager comes to report that Firefox takes 1400-1600 of RAM (out of the laptop's total of 6 GB). At the same time, Firefox's internal Task manager pretends that memory taken by all tabs does not sum up more than cca 650 MB !!! This is concur with about:memory tab if I try that too.

Here's a capture taken with Snip&Sketch having both Firefox's tab with it's internal task manager, + Windows's Task manager over it (attached).


I feel like I'm cheated here, but ... who is most closer lay blame on ? Who is more likely to lie in this case ?0 Firefox or Task Manager ?

I tend to believe it's Firefox, but I'm willing to have other opinions. Are there extra memory taken by Firefox that is not reported in the about:memory tab, or in it's internal task manager ? (I'm onto this, I believe that there is something that is not reported, but so far have not a shred of evidence on this).

This is exactly why on my computer at work (on an OpenSUSE install) I gave up on Firefox and turned to Chrome, because on this one I can trust the internal task manager, and it does not crush my Linux box like Firefox eventually have done with it's crazy memory consumption and/or CPU huge load from time to time. I am still using Firefox on the home Windows 10 laptop because I share it with my wife, and decided she is to use Chrome, and myself Firefox:-)

For a while now, I have not been able to save multiple images at once from the page info screen. To be specific, everything loads in just fine, but when I go to choose a folder, any folder as a save destination, nothing happens.... Now error or download, nothing. I tried hard resetting my PC to see if that was the problem but it's not.

Is there a way to fix this without add-ons or extensions???

Any suggestion of how to solve this? Thanks

My attached PDF has multiple check boxes with same name and different value.

It works correctly when opened using Adobe reader or chrome etc.. and only shows 1 checkbox B checked correctly.

If I open the same PDF using open with > Firefox then it incorrectly shows all checkboxs checked instead of only B.

It showed correctly in 64.0 (64 bit) firefox browser version's built in PDF viewer and it seems have issue in latest 84.0.2 (64 bit) firefox browser version's built in PDF viewer.

Is it a known issue ? Are we planning to fix it ?

I love having the Clear Cache icon so easily accessible, but why must it also refresh whatever page I am on??? Just now it caused the page to revert to one that had none of the articles on it, I was just looking at! This is supposed to be a helpful feature, not one that screws things up.

Hi all, I usually have about 5 windows open, just regular websites. Suddenly my fan goes beserk and I look at the processes where on one firefox.exe the CPU is at 40-50 and everything slows to a crawl. When I press end process, it shuts down, the fan stops and browser speed goes back to normal. What is running in the background and how do I stop it?

Thank you

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

Firefox slow to load, 20-30 seconds. Appears is opening more than one instance with a single click. When it does load it sometimes comes up with the last page I had open even tough I closed it out properly. Sometimes get error msg that must close out 2nd Firefox before can start Firefox but saying yes results in the current open window closing. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically installed yesterday? Window 7. Cleared cash. Disabled all add on's etc. No help. Close out Firefox and Task Mngr show no Firefox running. Start Firefox and Task mngr shows four/five Firefox running. This started yesterday and the latest version of Firefox was automatically updated yesterday. Any ideas.

Hey guys! I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome and I'm loving it except for the fact that download speeds are really slow. I have a internet speed of 360Mb/s and yet Firefox will download most stuff at ~500Kb/s. In other places like Steam my download speed is around 10% of internet speed (so today it would be around 36Mb/s) but Firefox is really slow. I did some research and used some console commands and uninstalled some extensions but to no avail. Thanks for your time!

First of all wow, it's frustrating that is it this difficult to report issues and get help with Firefox. That being said, beginning 1/8/2021 every time I try to create a post with images on Facebook, Firefox displays the "a web page is slowing down your browser" error. Waiting does nothing and if I stop it, I can't make the post. I use Facebook heavily for business so this is a MAJOR issue. Clearing the cache, cookies, and site data does NOT fix the issue. I've not had an issue with this before now, and I've been using Firefox for years. I have been using the Facebook container for several months, but this is the first I've had an issue. Is this a Firefox issue, or a Facebook issue? Please help, this issue is getting annoying enough that I have to use a different browser and I don't like doing that.

Thank you

Sometimes, when using Firefox, if I try to cut and paste something, and I use the Right-Click context menu, the "Copy" and "Paste" options will be grayed out and will not work. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens often enough that I think it needs to be addressed.

Say for example, I'm on Facebook, and I want to copy something from someone's status to post as a comment elsewhere. Or I'm on a webpage and want to copy and paste a word so I can do a quick search for more information. About a third of the time, the Right-Click option will not allow me to do this. The word "Copy" will appear in the context menu, but it will be grayed out and will not work.

The only way I can make it work is to go to another program (like Word) and perform a cut-and-paste operation there. Then, when I return to Firefox, it will work.
