Recently Firefox is slower and when I have one screen up and go to task manager it shows anywhere from 8 to 40 instances of Firefox running and sometimes 98% CPU usage. I have had other problems since the Microsoft January 9, 2024 update. Is this related or is this a separate Firefox issue? How to start fixing?

thanks

Ron

The "Layout.css.page-size.enabled" configuration parameter = False ,worked effectively in previous versions, but after updating to Firefox 119.0, it no longer works whether I set it to True or False.

Orientation option is missing when I try to print documents from a website. The Firefox Print Preview window, which usually allows orientation choices for printing, is now not available.

Please advise. Thanks!

Had it yesterday, happened this morning after the restart and just NOW, when I entered 6 lousy tabs, and they are NOT in the recently closed list either.. wups, gone, no tabs, setting has a check mark on open previous windows and tabs. Within 24 hours, lost the tabs three times with a non reported crash and Firefox closing itself with no warning.

I honestly do not think I am responsible to keep a backup of my browser history, I expect a browser to do that. I switched from Opera to Firefox not to long ago.. even Opera is a security risk.. at least it doesn't delete your tabs just for fun.

Very simple.. that happens once more and i am OFF this browser....

I have used Firefox since forever, was a Netscape user in the past

But for about 3 months Firefox simply is no good anymore\

It is more and more sites I can not access with Firefox and have to use Edge instead.

Last example, just now

https://www.cibc.com/en/journeys/new-to-canada.html

See screens attached

This is just one example, many other sites simply do not open, or open properly, in Firefox

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Thank you

There was no such problem before, after the 117 update, the CSS theme I use is constantly reset and the browser returns to its default theme. The screen goes black for a moment and then the theme resets or the browser crashes. Is there anyone who has experienced the same problem? Any possible solutions?

Using this theme: https://github.com/Neikon/Fox11

I'll add 2 pictures of what my browser looks like when normal and crashed.

First of all, an important thing to note is that this is happening on only my school laptop, and not my pc. This problem occurs on all school laptops that have Firefox installed. The reason I, and some others want to use Firefox is simply to get an ad-blocker as extensions are blocked on the default browsers (chrome and edge).

Anyway, the issue is as such: One moment, I will be browsing normally, and then the next, a page will stop loading or refuse to load any new content. It is just like there is no internet going to Firefox, despite the laptop having internet connection as seen in other programs. The way I fix this is by opening edge, waiting for it to start, and then closing edge. Firefox then has internet connectivity again and will work perfectly fine for another few minutes, before having to do it again.

I really have no idea why this is happening, and especially why it is fixed by opening and closing another browser. Obviously this is caused by some administrative program on the computer, but by the way that I can temporarily fix it, I would assume that there is a more permanent solution. The admin programs on the computer are GlobalProtect (VPN), Sophos Endpoint Agent (Security), and Teamviewer (probably not relevant).

As this is for a student, doing something that is against the school rules, it is absolutely necessary that this gets fixed as soon as possible. I simply cannot live with these default browsers with ads. /s

Thanks for the help

So I just picked up a new laptop (ASUS Vivobook 16x), and everything is fresh on it. Additionally, this only affects some video content in Firefox, with Edge browser unaffected. In brief, what is happening is that within a couple hours of having the browser open, certain video content stops working, specifically Twitter/X videos just spin, YouTube previews stop working, and videos continually load. Netflix videos continue to work, but hover previews stop functioning. I even check the 'Stats for Nerds' on YT and it shows 0 KB network activity in Firefox.

I've tried every basic action I can think of:

  • Turning off extensions (only use Ublock and Bitwarden)
  • Browser Refresh (x3)
  • Reverting from 120.1 to 120.0, and now 199.0.1
  • Clearing the browser cache
  • Reinstalling NVidia and Intel Drivers
  • Running in Safe Mode

Only by doing a refresh or completely closing/opening the app gets videos to function again. This doesn't affect the old laptop or my desktop, which makes me think it's a rogue driver--but then why would Edge function without error over the same period of time?

Are there any settings to play with in the browser that can help diagnose?

This doesn't happen every time, but certainly more frequently than it should. Is there anything that can be done about this. Is this about competing for resources. Maxing out the CPU?

Just now occurred. Firefox closed shortly after opening Chrome. No crash notification. Then, Chrome froze, with one of those "Close program or wait" messages.

Starting a few weeks ago, firefox would not load any accounts via https://login.microsoftonline.com/ one one of my Macs.

I was running the latest version 121.xx on MAC 12.7.2

Nothing would fix the site issue, so I tried re-installing and refreshing Firefox. Followed all the troubleshooting steps.

Now firefox is completely broken. Tried creating a new profile. Running in safe mode, etc.

It sometimes will load pages, but extremely slow. But generally is unusable.

Firefox works on my other macs just fine (Profile uses sync with those machines)

Safari and Chrome work perfectly fine. No malware. No ISP issues. No firewall.

Please advise a fix or I guess I will delete everything firefox related.

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

Hi. Without warning and without my making any changes to my laptop, I can no longer access various web pages including those I most use. The error message being returned is: Secure Connection Failed Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_FUTURE_RESPONSE

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox without successfully resolving access. Other browsers have no access issues. I tried checking for advice on what else I could do but i don't find the information on the web to be at all helpful. I'd appreciate very detailed instructions on exactly how to resolve this.

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80 GHz Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.87 GB usable) Device ID DE6126F4-CF38-4570-9665-6074D5A800B9 Product ID 00325-81249-74797-AAOEM System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Hello! So the problem I'm having is every so often after ten minutes of Firefox working perfectly it will stop working. For example, it won't load any new pages it'll just be stuck pinging back and forth. The website will stop loading YouTube and Twitch will show network errors etc. And it's NOT MY NETWORK or router.

I'm hooked up threw an ethernet cable but my CPU and ethernet ( I just got a new ethernet cable CAT 8 because I thought it was my cable but it still doesn't work) only spikes when using Firefox it's like Firefox stops sending and receiving. Yet other browsers like Chrome work PERFECTLY. But I would prefer using Firefox since all my bookmarks and things are saved here.

I've tried clearing my cookies etc. I'm going to try redownloading Firefox but if there is anything else I could do please let me know. I have some images attached one of the balls just loading and I'll be waiting forever until I restart Firefox. The other is of a media player that says I have a network error but I only get this error on Firefox.

Thank You

My Firefox browser automatically updated a few days ago. Since the update, the browser now crashes repeatedly during basic browsing, making Firefox essentially unusable. For instance, retrieving Yahoo mail, reading articles, accessing login pages -- the page will enter some type of refresh/reload cycle and crash the browser.

I opened the browser in troubleshoot mode and the problem did not occur. Following the Mozilla instructions, I disabled extensions and reopened the browser normally, and the crashes continued. I have not taken any additional actions.

This problem began immediately after the latest browser update on 9/13.

Firefox uses too much memory, sometimes 20GB on a 32GB Windows machine. It's usually one or two threads which are hogging incredible amounts of memory. This time I had about 30 tabs open.

Today I tried Firefox about:memory "Minimize Memory Usage" several times, and it was largely ineffective.

I did a "create memory dump file" of one 5+GB bloated thread using task manager, but can't find a way to upload the compressed archive with this report for analysis. Finding a way to report this issue was quite a challenge. It seems most help avenues are now missing/moved, and other reports of this type of issue are "Archived".

I tried killing the 2 bloated Firefox threads and checked for tabs which might be missing or malfunctioning. Everything continued to run normally while more than 10GB of memory was returned to system use. Leaving these bloated threads overnight doesn't improve anything, in fact I can often get up and find my machine is completely out of memory because Firefox consumed it all. My smallest machines have 16GB RAM.

These memory issues aren't new. I've been reporting them off and on for more than a decade. They get better for a few months after reporting, then they get bad again in a few more months. The battle to get memory leaks fixed is continuous while Firefox springs more leaks.

I'd like to give you the memory image I generated so you'll at least have some real data to look at and analyze for this report.

The attached task manager snapshot image is a very minor example of this issue. The numbers keep increasing like there are one or more large memory leaks.
